Hi Bacon

I have installed via the extension manager, and tried to put on the page/canvass, but I don't get a cross to drag on the page.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Darren

Close WB saving any project that may have open, and then restart WB and you should now be able use.

Hmmm as you can see from the image below it is in Toolbox and displying on page... How did you install it? did you login with password? or did you install by using the extension manager?? If you manually downloaded by using your login and installed then please uninstall and use the extension manager...

Hi Bacon

Yes I installed via the extension manager.

Still no joy.

So - I tried something else - I think WB7 only allows 200 extensions - I deleted some and tried again, and so far it seems fine.

I think he problem could have been too many extensions :oops:

Thanks for your help :wink:

Sorry Bacon it's me again.

I think I'm being a bit thick here. Could you help.

The extenion is now in WB and works fine.

However, this is what I am getting - not sure what I am doing wrong.

Let's say I have a domain.

www.xyz.com

I build a site 900 pixels wide, 900 pixels high for normal web browsing. I publish the site, and it works fine.

Now with your extension, let's say I have built a smaller project just for mobile devices - and I put in a subdomain, www.xyz.com/mobile

I use your extension to direct mobile devices to the sub domain, as per instructions. This is the thing I can't work out.

With your extension, noraml browsing (using a computer), goes to the sub domain, (the mobile site version) whilst mobile devices (iphone etc), goes to the main site, not the mobile device.

In other words, the site is working backwards. :(

Any ideas?

Thanks

Darren

I will take a look at this later tonight when it all quiet... had alook at the code and it looks like iphone ia missing from it... but for try using as below since the mobile site is with a folder you need to point to the index file in that folder
www.xyz.com/mobile/index.html

I want to chime in here and mention i have webkit for building iphone based web sites.

heres a demo..

http://www.ideviceskins.com/repo/depiction/*****.html

seems this site is blanking out the last bit of the link so type in aa.html

it will look like crap, unless you look at it on iphone.

if i can get it into an extention, or let me re-phrase. if bacon can get it into an extention. i can guarantee you its worth it.

i would do it, but i am slammed like a mofo
