[Pro] Scripty Accordion help please

After learning that there is a conflict with Scripty actions in and Moo Accordion in the framework of Freeway, I’ve had to completely redo my pages. I’ve spent hours on this, replacing my previously functional moo accordion with the Scripty. Now the Scripty Accordion will not show properly on most pages, even though it does in preview.
What do I need to do to get it to stick and stay consistent?
The first menu box suddenly disappears on publishing, or the whole kaboodle is open.

Thank you,
Vicki

I’m interested to ask what you needed to be Scripty for you to change from Moo? There are obvious benefits to both frameworks, but I’m curious as to what brought the need on to use Scripty?

Moo “forked” out of Prototype several years ago, and kept a lot of the same function names, but gave them different things to do. So if you try to run both on the same page, pretty much nothing works. That, and you have twice as much server load because these are fairly large libraries. Generally speaking, you can do the same things with all the major libraries. There is no reason to ever use more than one, but sometimes you pick a library based on a particular plug-in or extension you want top use.

I didn’t do anything, as I noticed a previous poster also said. I haven’t touched the site for some time, except for changing one page which did not have any actions on it, and then all of a sudden the menu was broken. I emailed Weaver and he confirmed that Scripty framework running on Freeway probably was the cause. I had no problems with the moo accordion previously.

The site is:

The landing page seems to have the problem now with the first left menu item. In my sites folder I have it labeled Folkhearts Index. Today it is working in Firefox but not in Safari. In Safari the Menu item “GalleryMarte” is a negative space just a little block outline on every page I checked. Is it Safari problem? I don’t know what IEx shows at the moment.

You are suffering from a long-standing problem in Freeway.
Occasionally, Actions that generate files and then link to those files
get confused about which file they are pointing to. In your case, one
of your scripts has become confused with the _clear.gif that Freeway
uses to prop up layouts. So you have a link to a script that is really
pointing to the _clear.gif.

There are a number of things you can try, I have listed them in order
of severity. Stop when you get something that seems to work.

  1. Hold down the Control key and choose “Publish Everything…” from
    the file menu. Upload.
  2. Locate you local Site Folder (the folder on your hard disk where
    Freeway publishes all of your site files) and delete everything you
    find in it. Publish again and Upload.
  3. Repeat step 2, and also use an FTP client to delete all of the
    files you find on your server in that site’s root folder (be sure not
    to delete anything above that level, or anything that’s a hidden file,
    or your server may stop working). Publish again and Upload.
  4. Go through your entire site, remove all Actions from all elements.
    Publish once. Re-apply and re-configure all the Actions, Publish
    again, and Upload.

Uncle. I’ve done #1 about six times now, trying to repair things inbetween. Not working, just continually broken.

About #2. I selected my site folder made a copy, put the copy in the trash and deleted all the oontents of the original site file. I can’t publish as I have a huge list “Publish problems” of missing resources. Was that supposed to happen?

Make a new document, and move the trouble page into it (select the page in your current document by clicking its name in the Site list, then Edit/Copy, then move to your new document and Edit/Paste. The whole page, everything intact, will come over to the new document.

Now try publishing that. If there are publish problems, you really must resolve them. If Freeway has lost track of one or more images, that could throw the whole process off to the point where you have this issue.

If this new document works, then you know that the issue is buried somewhere deep in the document, most likely to do with the missing resources.

If you started seeing missing resources right after you deleted the contents of the Site Folder, then please make sure that you haven’t been sourcing images from within the same Resources folder that you are publishing into. That’s like “crossing the streams” in Ghostbusters parlance. Very bad.

If you have, you will need to re-orient Freeway so it pulls images and other files from a separate folder nowhere near the folder where you publish the site. Whenever you publish, Freeway will delete all the files it is going to replace, then re-generate them, then creates new copies in your Site Folder. That folder is entirely under Freeway’s control, and you have to think about it as a “black box”. Never use anything that’s inside it for anything. The next time you publish, those files could be entirely different or missing.
