Re: Inaccessible images

Bert Green
 

Update: I moved past Mojave and updated to Big Sur and the problem with inaccessible images seems to have stopped, so I assume it was related to Mojave and my old laptop.

I'm working only in Xway now and have found that is very stable, and works great for my current needs. I'll look forward to the upload function and for master pages to be enabled, but for now Xway is performing very well.

People are visiting piramids and other antient things and there are no English or any other modern languages there, so is my web site.
People wants to see something boyond there daily life and want to see other realms and this is my web site.

There is no web site which covers topic of love so my web site pretty unquie.
I have no finansial support so awrything goes pretty cheap but even right now it is something intrestin'.

I see there are some huge difuculties to make my wb site to apear on Google on first page but i am looking for solutions to make that.
Jesus Christ said: All doors always will open to awrybody who knocks those doors.

Maybe i will get in to friendship with Google owner and they will post my web site on the first page of Google. lol

Those suggestions are very good ones, but really, what you're hoping for is just not going to happen. I'm going to be the bearer of bad news I'm afraid...

Google (and other search engines) index the readable text in a site and rank it according to a host of different criteria. But the bottom line is a site will only be returned in search results if the search engine things it is a very good 'fit' for what has been searched for. The word 'love' is so ubiquitous and generic that a search for it returns literally 8.6 billion results. You could inch your site up the results list a bit if you worked really hard on the above suggestions and in particular concentrated on making sure you have a good amount of relevant text – in English, if you're hoping for results in English-language searches – for the search engine(s) to index. But aiming to be found for such a generic single word is, I'm afraid, unrealistic.

You should reassess your aims. There are rather a lot of different reasons someone might include the word 'love' in their search term, almost all of which wouldn't be relevant. Try this very basic thing: type "love" into the Google search field and look at what the auto-completion suggestions are. These will vary from person to person as Google will try to tailor itself to your general interests, but here's what I get:

  • Love Island
  • love island 2021
  • love island twitter
  • love holidays
  • love island news
  • Love and Monsters
  • love island cast amor
  • love island 2021 cast
  • Love Your Garden
  • love island postcard
Personally I detest the TV show Love Island; I'd honestly rather watch a blank wall. But it's clearly very popular; it appears in suggestions even though I have never in my life expressed any interest in it (and haven't even typed the name online until now). But the real point is that the ONLY way you can hope to do well in searches is to understand the things your actual target audience are likely to search for and then make sure your pages are absolutely full of well-crafted, human and machine-readable text that is relevant and authoritative in that area. Then Google (etc.) will be more likely to suggest your site when someone makes such a search. Unfortunately, having content that is mostly in Ancient Slavonic will do the very opposite.

You could add translations of Ⰾ̑ⰣⰁⰑⰂ̑Ⱐ̑ in your "description" meta tag. This will be read by search engines, but will not be seen by visitors unless they view the HTML source. You can also add any other words or phrases that you think describe your site (e.g. "true love", "ancient mysticism") - up to a limit of around 160 words.

Re: X-Way web site does not appear in Google

I found Google instantly on first position searches my web site by word Ⰾ̑ⰣⰁⰑⰂ̑Ⱐ̑ which is title description of first page.
How ever not all people might know Antient Slavonic language to propertly write that down in Google search engine.
So i want to make Google to look for word "love" so it redirects to my web site 
How ever i do not want to to use any modern languages on my web site ibecause i do not want to ruin mistical the spirit of my web site.

So the question is: how ask Google to make it show my web site by word"love" while title description of my web site will stays "Ⰾ̑ⰣⰁⰑⰂ̑Ⱐ̑" ? 
;)

Thank you. I want to keep my web site as mystic as possible so i do not want to use any modern languages. So i must find a nit way to make search engines to reconise my web site while there are no modern languages are visible to the end user. ;)
If there are any other suggestions to help me with this web site please lt me know!!! ;)


Re: X-Way web site does not appear in Google

Hi ⰔⰀⰞⰀ,

The title of a page is one of the things that search engines use in deciding on the page's relevance. It's possible that you are confusing them by using Ancient Slavonic. Perhaps it would help to add a Russian translation.

You can change the language of your page to Russian (if appropriate) using the Language popup in the Document (or Page) Inspector.

You have a meta tag named "true-love-". This won't be recognised by search engines (it's not a recognised name). You should rename it to "description": in Xway, double-click on "true-love-" in the Meta Tags section of the Document (or Page) Inspector and change it to "description" (without quotes).

It might also help if you added some text information about your website on the home page. But don't use hidden text (e.g. black on black) - search engines tend to penalise sites that do this.

Re: X-Way web site does not appear in Google

Hi ⰔⰀⰞⰀ,

It can take a few days for search engines to list new sites.

Other things that can make a difference: include relevant text on the page, use a page title that describes the content, and add appropriate meta tags (see the Meta Tags chapter in the Xway User Guide).

I also noticed that language of your web site is set to English, but the web address is Russian, and the title of the page is in a different script that I don't recognise.

Jeremy -

Thanks for your very prompt reply. 

Just moved the app to the application folder, and that worked.

Thanks again.

Hi Ken,

The Xway User Guide is included within Xway's application package, so it won't show up separately (e.g. in the Finder).

You could open the application package, but it's better if you fix your permission problem. It's possible that this is caused by Apple's quarantine technology. This can create problems if you run an application from the directory where you downloaded it.

Is Xway within your Applications folder? If not, try dragging it there. If it is, try dragging it out and then put it back in there.

FYI 
my xway is in applications folder. once I go to the Help menu and click on Xway User Guide. the pdf opens in a separate window which you then can go to save as and store on desktop for easy referral. but you'll have to do this on every version of Xway as the user guide is updated as well
good luck

Xway user guide

Ken McKinley
 

Hello -

I have used Freeway for several years, and recently downloaded Xway to begin the process of learning the new program. I have been working through the tutorial, which has been helpful.

However, I am not able to access the User Guide. When I try to open it from the app, I get a dialog which says the following:

"The file “Xway User Guide.pdf” couldn’t be opened because you don’t have permission to view it. To view or change permissions, select the item in the Finder and choose File > Get Info.”

I have searched my computer for the file named “Xway User Guide.pdf” and it does not appear to exist.

Is there a way that the user guide can be downloaded directly? I don’t see any option on the website to do this.

I am running Catalina 10.15.7 on a 2020 Macbook Pro.

Thanks for any help that can be provided.

Ken McKinley

Yeah. I realized that was the solution about a half hour after I sent the post. It’s real simple, once you know how.

Thanks for all your help

Could you put the thumbnails in a separate (inflow) thumbnails box that follows the main pictures box?

You can add margins to the thumbnails to space them from each other. On narrow-width devices, they might flow across more than one line.

Re: Getting up to speed

Getting close to what I'm trying to accomplish.

The attached screen shot shows what I'm going for. The large image is a before/after structure. The two thumbnails are each links, one to a close-up shot, the other to the full image (as shown).
This is how I want it to look on the page, but I've only managed it so far with absolute positioning for the thumbnails. How would I get all the images on the page within the same "Pictures" box, and positioned as shown?


Re: Getting up to speed

Jeremy Hughes
 

Hi Crawford,

The formula is (height ÷ width) x 100

The easiest way to work this out is using the Calculator app that comes with macOS. But you're pretty close to the answer. You just need to multiply 1.5 by 100 to get a percentage: 150%.

Using the calculator will give you a more accurate figure: (1080 ÷ 719) x 100 = 150.208623087621697%

If you paste that into Xway, it will round it to two decimal places: 150.21%

Re: Getting up to speed

Thanks for the information, Jeremy. I've set up a test page and produced the desired results, even though I'm still not fluent in the various parameters.

Step 3 in particular. The test image I'm using is 719 x 1080 pixels. Dividing height by width gives roughly 1.5. I'm not clear on what needs to happen to turn that figure into the bottom padding value for the container box.
