New ARM processors

How will the transition to ARM processors affect the development of Xway?


Re: Adding PHP to X-way

Jeremy Hughes
 

Hi David,

There are two ways you can insert PHP:

  1. Use the Generic Markup section in the Page (or Document) Inspector to insert markup before/after <html></html><head></head><body></body> (same as Page Markup in Freeway).
  2. Use a Markup item. In contrast to Freeway, Xway markup items do not add any surrounding div or p elements — unless they are marked as Inline by selecting the Inline checkbox (inline markup items are embedded in a p element).

Adding PHP to X-way

David Owen
 

Hi

Just revisiting the latest Beta for Freeway and having a look around to refresh myself.

Whats the plans to be able to insert php into X-way? Using Freeway7 I was totally reliant on Walters Crowbar Action to insert php without surrounding p tags or divs.

I can see that PHP could be inserted in extended values. But what about the on the page itself. What’s the plans if any for that?

Xway and Accordian type effect.

Mad Farquhar
 

Maybe being a bit optimistic here however is there a way (yet) to incorporate an accordion type text drop down effect. Think I maybe know the answer....

Hi Jeremy,
 
Thanks for your prompt response.  Simon has already answered providing a solution that seems to be quite easy.
 
Thank you so much again.

  1. Use a VM (VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop). As Richard Cacciato points out, this allows you to switch between 32-bit and 64-bit applications without having to restart.
  2. Create a separate volume for Mojave (as grantsymon suggests) if you don't mind restarting when you need to run a 32-bit application.

Hi Álvaro,

Apologies - I see you already asked this question about Exhibeo galleries on Exhibeo Talk. I'll get Simon to answer you there!

[I try to keep track of Freeway Talk and Exhibeo Talk via email, but messages keep ending up in Gmail's junk folder. That's one of the reasons we switched to iogroups for Xway Talk.]

Carla,

FWIW... if you can live with a restart, then since APFS was introduced (Apple File System) it is now trivial to have multiple MacOS on your drive and a simple case of restarting with the Option Key held down to choose which one you want.  You don't need to allocate space to the Volume. AFPS automagically resizes as required.

Re: Xway b2.2 is here

Hi Jeremy,

Talking about Exhibeo galleries, which I bought a couple of weeks ago to use with Freeway, I’m dealing with a persistent problem. When previewing to any browser using the “Impress” theme, the slideshow functionality does not work. To see all the images you have to do it manually. This issue is true using any browser. I checked the inspector with Firefox and it states specifically: “The slideshow functionality is not supported on your device” What is that? I am using an iMac late 2015 with the latest Mojave version and everything works when working with Freeway and other actions, such as showcase, but not with Exhibeo. I hope that you can help with this, which is very frustrating.

Thanks,

Álvaro

Yes Jeremy 
Thanks I plan to get Parallels next year as well

New features in b3 include the ability to import Exhibeo galleries, and full support for copy and paste.

I'm still using Mojave, but I will probably upgrade to Big Sur when it's released (and Apple have fixed any serious bugs). My plan for then is to install Mojave within a virtual machine (VMWare or Parallels Desktop). There is a TidBITs article that explains how to do this:


If you decide to do this, download the Mojave installer from Apple before you upgrade (it's difficult to download it after you've upgraded).

Re: Xway b2.2 is here

@MacFinn
 

Any idea when I can preorder Xway? I got my Visa ready here. 
Or at least beta 3 with Freeway file support. So I can start transferring my 5-6 sites to Xway.

Missing Xway is the only reason my Mac still runs Mojave and I would like to upgrade.


Re: Xway & Transmit

ThatKeith
 

Yeah, that's a good concern. Could the internal site folder be made read-only for Finder access while still being writeable by Xway?

Jeremy
This was extremely helpful, thank you. It seemed to be the font size setting in the banner section (even though there was no text there). 
Best wishes

Re: Top Margins

Jeremy Hughes
 

Are there any other margins - either on the pagediv, or on one of the boxes that contains the header image, or on the image itself?

Or padding?

Alternatively, if the vertical alignment of the header image is set to "baseline" (the default alignment), you could try changing this to "top" so that it aligns with the top of the line that it is on (even if that line is otherwise empty, its height is partly determined by the default height of the text at this point).

Jeremy


Re: Top Margins

david@...
 

Jeremy
Thank you for this advice - it seems to have worked, although the gap above the header ('brand') image and the top of the page is still more than I would like.
David
