1. New Software Notice alert!

    The new Web Graphics Creator (version 4.0) will be out soon.

    For now, version 3.0 is still active and works great on most Windows machines. It no longer runs on Macs using Lion or greater... (but the new version will fix this)

    So hang in there! It's almost done!

    The flip book would need to be uploaded via ftp and ran from the files from the drive to display correctly as more than one file is used at a time.

    I actually meant uploading it to the drive on your website from the drive on your computer. When you save it, you'll have it on your drive so you won't need to save it again.

    You'll need to upload it to your website and then upload the html code to your blog to display it.

    I guess you know Blogs don't use FTP...So I couldn't figure out how to make a Flip Book and Load it directly to the Blog...capt:image10:

    You have to upload the files to the website, you can't upload them to your blog.

    When you generate the book, save it, then preview it, it will list the code needed for an html page. This is the code that you would use for your blog.

    You may need to edit the code and the config.xml file based on where you upload the files.

    If, for example, you uploaded the files in a directory called flipbook, you would need to prepend file locations like:

    MyFlipBook.swf

    to

    /flipbook/MyFlipBook.swf

    for each parameter that is specifying a file.

    You will NOT be able to upload the files itself to your blog, you can only paste the html that will display the flipbook.

    Gotcha...I know when Pasting HTML Code into a Blog, that some of the Code isn't neccessary.. I use Blogspot,com and it usually tells me that a certain line of code "Can't be published because..." and I can correct it from there. I don't have a Website. I will have to apply for one with my Comcast account. They generally have Templates, but do allow FTP if you wish to . I can use that to generate the HTML for the Flip Book and take it from there. Really A BIG Help Chris. I hope I can Return the Favor sometime...capt.:image28:
