Plug-In tips needed!

Hi,

I have Artisteer 4.2 and I upgraded to Standard edition then downloaded the mojoPortal plug-in.

I have a question regarding the conversion.  I installed the plug-in and all went well.  I then exported my design from Artisteer using MojoPortal export link.  When I copied the files to the server where my web site is located and changed the interface to reflect the new design (new folder with just the exported files, I also added the line to the script file).  When I pointed to the new interface I did not get the look I expected.  I got a text type interface with a text menu with all my items but vertically when I had a horizontal menu in my design.  The background is white, not the color or image I selected, there are also other items missing from my design.

Anyone got any suggestions as to what I missed?

I created a new Artisteer interface with the 3 column layout, 30px top space, vertical menu, added the line to the script file.

Hi Philip,

Check your system log (Administration > System Log or \wwwroot\data\currentlog.config) for errors. Look carefully at the errors. Just because there is an error, doesn't mean there is a problem or the error is related to your problem.

Thanks,
Joe D.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the pointer... there was an error in the Log file saying that there was no Layout.mater file... very strange... on closer scrutiny I found the true error... I have named the folder art42-Discovery California 3 with spaces between Discovery and California and the number 3...  well after removing the spaces all worked fine...  So if I may suggest that a line bee added to the help file on creating or importing your own styles is to note that there can not be any spaces in the folder name (a left over of DOS I suspect).

But without your help I would have been floundering for days more. Thanks

Phill

Hi Phill,

The spacing isn't a left over from DOS. It's more of a forcing of a best practice. One should not use spaces in file or directory names for files and directories which will be accessed from the web.

There's already a note about not including spaces in the name on the "Skinning Overview" page.

Thanks,
Joe D.
