Hi Jack,

Once again … I changed <title>Tag in the index.html and in the config.xml <websiteName> !!! Now … if i paste a Link into Facebook > Send Message > the facebook-title-search-autofill-maschine or something like that, fill the title with “50andJack – CANVAS ” ... Example: http://tlow4nia.bplaced.net/temp.jpg

Can you fix this problem and the youtube update problem? Thank You

50andJACK

Hi throw4nia,

The youtube bug has been fixed and is officially available for download here on ActiveDen. You can get it from your downloads page. Just replace the entire “cj” folder as well as the “canvas.swf” file to update.

As long as you changed the title in those two places I don’t see why the wrong title would populate for facebook. Maybe Facebook is grabbing the title from the Google listing which has re-indexed your site since changes were made? Send us an email with a link to an online example and I will take a look.

Hi Jack,

Question: Which video formats supports the single player in canvas ? Is it possible to play mp3 files in this template?

Tigh

50andJACK

Hi Tigh,

mp3 files are supported for the music player. mp4, flv, f4v are supported for the video player.

Hi, Very nice template. I would like to set external links in the menu. How should this be coded?

Thanks!

50andJACK

Hi graphic,

There’s a submenu example, but the same code can just be exported to the main menu:

<menuTitle>LINK</menuTitle>

<!-- This page is an external link -->
<!-- The url to navigate to -->
<link>http://www.google.com</link>

<!-- The window target for the link, options are "_blank" and "_parent" -->
<target>_blank</target>

is there a way to add graphic images to the menu?

50andJACK

Hi graphic,

This functionality is not currently supported.

-Jack

graphicoffee

in the mean time could you show me how to keep the hidden footer exposed?

50andJACK

Hi graphic,

Do you mean you’d like the submenu to always be shown? Currently this option is not supported.

-Jack

graphicoffee

I mean where the full screen/facebook/twitter icons reside.

50andJACK

Oh I see. That menu is only currently built to display on mouse over.

-Jack

graphicoffee

If you can give me the name and where the function is located, I’d like to take a crack at editing it.

50andJACK

Hi Graphiv,

It isn’t a single function, but the Menu code is located in the “cj > canvas > template” folder. The classes used for the menu are:

Item.as
SubItem.as
MyMenu.as
SubMenu.as
SubText.as
MenuText.as

And then the menu is instantiated in “Template.as”.

graphicoffee

yeah…well that is a little beyond me. I was hoping to find a onRollOver statement somewhere and somehow pin it to stay…..That is all I really need to do….Change up some of the social icons to what I need and bada bing.

But I can’t even get trace statements to show up. I found // fires when the footer is activated section on 104 of the footer.as but when I get some feed back nothing happens.

How much would it cost me to make that happen?

I tried adding facebook]]> to the <![CDATA[ ]] but nothing appears. Am I doing something wrong or is this not supported. Thanks

graphicoffee

nevermind…I found what I was doing wrong…I had the tag inside your <normal_text> tag.

Thanks

Hi Jack, I just purchased the template, love it. But the menus do not work. When I click on them, nothing happens. Please advice.

thanks.

50andJACK

Hi Isofall,

This is likely a local Flash security thing. If you put the template online it will work, but until then, this might help:

My co-worker says all the images are duller in appearance that the originals. Can something be done so they are identical to the original image without manipulating the images?

50andJACK

Hi graphicoffee,

Chances are the originals were high resolution and you resized them resulting in a loss of quality?

-Jack

graphicoffee

hmmm no. they are the same pics….she says they seem duller. I guess I am just passing along information as I myself do not see any loss of resolution. I told her I would pass the information along to you and see if there is anything to her statement.

THanks for replying

50andJACK

Once the photo is added to the site it gets resized to fit the screen. So depending on her screen size, this is likely why the photo looks different to her. You could try finding out her monitor resolution and try to resize the image to meet that size.

I tried following the link for embed fonts that is in the help file: http://blog.activeden.net/resources/common-questions-by-flashden-buyers/common-questions-using-special-characters-like/ but the page is there no longer. I’ve embeded the font in the swf….how do I add it to the xml is my question…thanks

50andJACK

Hi graphic,

Sorry about the dead link. ActiveDen must have removed all the pages to their old blog. Shame. You don’t need to do anything special to add the special characters to the html files. You can just add them like you would other characters.

I found some stuff on the net, but still having problems…Here’s what I have done so far: Embeded the fonts on the .fla complied to swf added the name onyx to the font family (the .ttf name of the font family is: Font Name: BerkeleyOldMdITCTT BlackItalic) in the .css file I have: title_text{ font-family: onyx; font-size: 20px; color:#ffffff; } but when I bring up the page nothing shows in the title_text area.
50andJACK

Hi graphic,

Try this:

font-family: “onyx”;

or

font-family: “Onyx”;

-Jack

graphicoffee

Thanks for the quick reply…. Tried both of them then went back in to fla and made sure everything was ok, but still with the same outcome.

When I take the font-family coding out it works ok in CSS when I try font-family: “SansationFont”; it does not work either.

50andJACK

Hi graphic,

I’m sorry you’re having trouble with this. Fonts can be tricky in Flash. Send me an email with the font you wish to use, as well as instructions of where you wish to use it and I’ll make the modification fro you.

-Jack

graphicoffee

Thanks Jack! works great! Everyone’s happy

@graphicoffee

When you’re embedding a font, especially replacing the Sensation font, I found that you need to make an AS3 class document by following the example of how Sensation was referenced via the class document under the properties option.

You also have to find the right font family and embed in your CSS document. Again, look at how the Sensation font was referenced in the CSS document and follow the logic.

I had to poke around, since I knew NOTHING about coding.

Fonts are looking great. Thanks!

I am tring to integrate another gallery ( I need something with categories) but when I access it no pics come come up. We I access the swf directly it comes up fine. The swf resides where the other swf’s are but the path to the xml file is in the same folder instead of the SWF folder like you have set up. The pathing to the images is images/images/gallery/stains/original/pic1.jpg.

I know it is difficult to troubleshoot without having the code…so anyhting you need let meknow.

Thanks, Damian

50andJACK

Hi Damien,

When an external swf is loaded into another swf such as a template, it automatically inherits the parent template’s directory. And this can cause problems when using relative urls. The easiest way to handle it other than reorganizing your external swf’s files and folders is to put the template online and use absolute urls for everything in your external swf.

-Jack

graphicoffee

it is a poorly designed gallery. I think I will scrap it and look for something else. The only perchased it because it used categories. Do you have anything like this: http://activeden.net/item/dynamic-resizable-interactive-gallery/2067817 ?

50andJACK

Not really. The only gallery component I have is this:

http://activeden.net/item/lp-image-and-youtube-gallery/244073

It supports unlimited images but doesn’t have categories.

But if you’d like some advice before you buy another gallery, email me from our profile page and I’ll let you know my thoughts (I’m familiar with a lot of authors’ work here on ActiveDen).

Marketing wants to add some text to the unsed area of the gallery (above the thumbnails). I used the gallery.fla and added the data directly to the stage, but it only shows when the large picture is being shown. Is there a way to put text on the thumbnail portion of the gallery?

Thanks.

50andJACK

Not without a little custom work to that module.

I’m having a problem with the autostart on the music. It plays when I go and hit the button, but does not start automatically. I have the autoPlay set to true.

50andJACK

Hi graphic,

Not sure about this as it’s the first time it’s been reported. Try replacing your current config.xml file with the original one, then compare the two to see what may be causing this to happen.

-Jack

graphicoffee

found the error…the initial file is a youtube video. It must have moved or something. I took that out and the music started playing on startup.

I contacted the aurthor of the of one of the moviecips I use inside of the Canvas template about this problem first:

I need to have a dark background behind the form to highlight it from the background. It looks ok on the intial view but if the user goes back to the page it looks fuzzy… http://greatnortherncabinetry.com/canvas_source/#/dealercontact is the page

Author nliven replied I checked the URL but this problem does not seem to be related to OneForm. Its most probably related to way you are loading it back in inside that flash template. There is nothing in OneForm’s code which could possibly cause that. What I suggest is rather then keeping the OneForm movieclip loaded on the stage remove the instance each time and create a new one every time that page is opened. This would be a much simpler fix.

Is this a simple fix?

50andJACK

Hi graphic,

That’s certainly bizarre. Try this with a normal external swf like the “external swf” example in the original download source and you’ll see that this behaviour can’t be reproduced. I’d also try loading the form into a bare-bones example the same behaviour would happen, because all the template does is load and unload external swfs, no special filters are ever applied to an external swf.

-Jack

Edit: after further review, it appears this is related to the external swf. You can load the external swf in the browser here:

http://greatnortherncabinetry.com/canvas_source/oneForm.swf

And you’ll see the temporary “blur” that appears so this filter is being applied by the external swf. The external swf’s xml file also has errors (view in Firefox)

http://greatnortherncabinetry.com/canvas_source/form.xml

And when I tried to load the swf into a simple bare-bones fla I get these errors:

Warning: Filter will not render. The DisplayObject’s filtered dimensions (8388866, 8388871) are too large to be drawn.

So my suggestion would be to get rid of that blur filter inside the external swf as it’s obviously got problems.

graphicoffee

Thanks 50… That is a great help. I thought that might be the issue myslef:

I’ve contacted the other autor to see if he can make the changes as you suggested. I did notice that you form goes fuzzy a bit as it loads when it is by itself in a html wrapper. Everytime I refresh the page I will go fuzzy for about a half sec before clearing up. How can I take that tween(?) from the movie….maybe that could solve my problem.
