My SL action is still not working, even after installing the new version. What I have done is make 3 test pages, so you can see the problem.
Test Page 1 - ( http://brutontown.co.uk/_test1.html ) Single image, ScriptyLightbox & Graphic Link to File applied. Image opens as it should BUT without the dark gray background and the spinning cog.
Test Page 2 - ( http://brutontown.co.uk/_test2.html ) Two images. ScriptyLightbox & Graphic Link to File applied to left hand image only. Graphic Link to File applied to right hand image only. First image opens as in Test Page 1, second image opens to left hand side of screen.
Test Page 3 - ( http://brutontown.co.uk/_test3.html ) Two images. ScriptyLightbox & Graphic Link to File applied to both. Click on either and they will open and fill the whole screen.
Have tested via Safari, FF, Google Chrome & Opera. The results are the same in all.
Have put 2 images within an ‘html box’ with the SL action applied to that box. Both images have the ‘Graphic Link to File’ applied and I’m getting the same results. Opening as they should do but with out the background and spinning cog.
So, I’d say I have got a problem with in my site??
Yes. You probably have a problem with your Action installation. Have a look on the Tutorials list, I posted some excruciatingly detailed instructions about fixing just this sort of problem over there.
I looked at that last night, before I downloaded and installed the new versions.
I put the ‘old’ version into the trash, made sure that I had cleared my ‘downloads’, cancelled the actions on the images and republished. The last thing I did was a search for any ScriptyLightbox files on my iMac. Downloaded & installed the new version.
I don’t know. I made sure to test on a different Mac than I developed the last version on, this laptop was stuck with a version two or three behind the current. The symptoms you are describing have to do with the images not being uploaded to the server properly. Do you have any other Actions (besides the two needed to run this effect) on this same page? Maybe there’s something that it’s not playing well with.
I traced back through the code, and I believe I may have found some issues which would make this work badly on a page that included any other Scripty Actions. It tested fine as long as SL was the only such action on the page, but I wasn’t playing by my own rules when adding files to the page.
The only other thing that occurs to me is that some of those test dog pictures you were using were seriously HUGE. I have a full T1 line here, and the full-size images were crawling onto my computer one or two pixel rows at a time. The loading and background images might just be blocked by the huge image, and not loading until it’s all there.
You might try resizing your original images to something more reasonable for a screen, like maybe fit them into a 1000px square. Anything larger is pure overkill.
These images are being called from a sub-folder named history. Do you
have that folder in your project? Does its Resources folder contain
copies of these images? Also, for some reason your script is
requesting the file black.png instead of black-70.png. I’m looking
into that separately. ajax-loading.gif is being requested out of the /

specifically, and they must be named exactly that.

I’ve got ajax-loading.gif and black-70.png along with IMG_0041.jpg &
IMG_0049.jpg plus img0041.jpeg & img0049.jpeg. All of these are in
my Resources folder.
If you put them in there (make copies, use an FTP app to put the
copies in there, leave the originals where they are) then the effect
will work. I am not sure why this is happening, but there are parts of
the Freeway publish process that are entirely out of the hands of us
mortal Action writers. Particularly to do with Resource folders and
