Re: Vanishing social media Link Buttons.
Hi Jay,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I don’t know that the link behaviour is a bug, but I agree that it is slightly confusing.
Suppose you have a page with the words “Hello world” and you add a link to “world”. Then you type an “s" on the end of “world” so that it says “Hello worlds”. In this case the link that you applied to “world” will also apply to the “s” (by default) — Xway (like Freeway) assumes that if you are typing on to the end of a link (or within a link) you also want the link to apply to what you are typing.
In this case, you aren’t typing — but you are adding an image directly after another image. Xway makes it seem as if the link is added to the image, but really it’s added around the image in the same way that it’s added around text. We could special-case images so this doesn’t happen, and we might think about doing that in future, but the current behaviour happens because Xway doesn’t consider links around images to be different from links around text.
So at this point you have two images within the same link. There isn’t an easy way to move an image so that it’s outside the link (if the image is the last item within a paragraph), so the simplest thing is to remove the link and then reapply separate links to the two images.
As for why some images aren’t in the Site folder, I don’t have an explanation for this (it's not something that has ever happened to me). Normally, you should be able to fix this by republishing, but the fact that that you are seeing question marks within Xway indicates that the images are also missing from the Resources folder that is within the document, and that the original images that you imported are also missing. What do you see if you switch to the Resources view within Xway? Are the images listed there? Is their status “OK” or “Missing”?
