[Pro] Problem with Exhibeo Import Action

Hmm - I was expecting the exhibio tutorial

There are instructions in Exhibeo - I’ll dig them out

I’ve found this, but it relates to Sandvox, which I’ve never heard of:

In Exhibeo once you have made your Slideshow
File >E xport to HTML
Give your file/folder a name and a destination (the Media Folder?)
In the folder that you just created using the Finder open the ExhibeoExport.html file - it should open in Safari or your Browser of choice.
Scroll down the page to find the instructions of what code you need to copy and to where.
1st lot of code should look like this

<!-- Note: This element must be the first element in the <head>. -->
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />
<!-- /Note -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/slide-styles.css" />
<script src="js/slide.js"></script>

Which should be copy/pasted into (in the FW doc on the page you are using it) Page> Html Markup in the After slot.
The next lot which should look like

<div id="exibid" class="xb-slide">
	<figure>
		<img src="image/1.jpg" />
		<figcaption>
			<h1>There when you need us</h1>
		</figcaption>
	</figure>
	<a class="hidden" href="image/1.jpg" title="There when you need us"></a>
	<a class="hidden" href="image/2.jpg" title="Care in your own home"></a>
	<a class="hidden" href="image/3.jpg" title="Escorted outings"></a>
	<a class="hidden" href="image/4.jpg" title="Help around your home"></a>
</div>
<script>
	window.exibidSlide = new Slide(document.getElementById("exibid"), {
		"animation": "glide", 
		"duration": 5, 
		"randomImages": false, 
		"sections": 10
	});
</script>

Copy this and then on your FW page create a Div (html container) where you want it to appear and click inside until you get a flashing cursor. Then Insert > Markup Item

In the dialogue box that opens paste the code that you copied. OK the dialogue box.

Now you need to get the following Folders onto your server css, image and js.

Use FTP for this ie Cyberduck, Transmit

These folders should be placed on the server at the same level as the page where the Slideshow will appear. (Unless you want to put them elsewhere and then have to change all the paths in the code you copied)

You will not be able to preview the page locally unless you also copy the css, image and js folders into your Site folder (on your Mac) but FW will not upload them for you automatically.

OK, will try that in a bit. All my other pages have slideshows from the export Action, and I’ll need the look to be consistent,
If I duplicate an existing page, clear the action and then make the Div the same size as the container for Exhibeo other pages, am hoping it will not be noticeable these have been imported in diffferently?

Adding 1 this way should not be a problem but if you want to add more then you will need to differentiate the files/folders before you upload them. But check on your server that you are not uploading files/folders that already exist with the same name.

If there are files/folders with the same name then you will need to change some names before you upload the new stuff.

Let us know.

Hi Dave,

Just before settling in to follow your instructions I thought I’d experiment with the Exhibeo export just to check it wasn’t something completely different.

Just cut the n umber of images to export to 16 and I have managed to create an export. So I’m going to experiment as it would appear that there is a limit to the number of images you can safely put in Exhibeo and export.

Will update once I see what it is…

Not aware of a # limit but you should certainly consider a total page ‘weight’ when creating something like this.

If you had 16 images at 500K each that would be 8Mb - which is a lot! Especially to expect a mobile user to download.

Are you optimising your images before adding them to Exhibeo? Have you considered their file size at all?

If your original Exhibeo file had 20 images at 1Mb each…?

Hi Matt,

I don’t monitor the Exhibeo list as closely as the FreewayTalk list, so I’ve only just seen this. Are you using the Exhibeo 2 Action to import Exhibeo 2 files?
