Layer Menu as Master Object not working.

Post by tshoda » Tue Feb 13, 2018 10:15 pm

Hi

My objective is to create a Layer Menu that's visible on several pages. Thus I've created the Layer Menu as a Master Object. So that when I choose to update the Layer Menu, it will automatically update on all pages. However when I publish the site, the Layer Menu does not work :( .

It only works when I copy and paste the Layer Menu on each page individually (so not as Master Object) which is not practical for me from maintenance perspective.

Is this a bug? Or is there another way of establishing this?

Thanks for your help!

To be able to help you I need to see what you have done. There are no known bugs otherwise it would have already been fixed.
Please share the project file.

Thanks for sharing the project. However it was created with an older version of software.
Please install the latest version first, so we can be sure the issue has not already been fixed in one of the many updates that have been released since that version.

There is no content on the layers of the menu. Is this intentional?
What exactly are you trying to do?

Hi Pablo
I've created the Layer Menu as a Master Object. Please view Layer Menu Testing.wbs file.
So that when I choose to update the Layer Menu, it will automatically update on all pages. However when I publish the site (to preview it), the links (HOME, ABOUT, BLOG, CONTACT) don't work.

To illustrate, if you go to the 'Published Testing' folder, open the 'index.html' page and click one of the main links, for example the 'ABOUT' link, it doesn't take me to the 'ABOUT' page but instead I get error page saying:

Your file was not found
It may have been moved or deleted.
ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND


Am I making sense? Can you see the same problem

Thanks for your help

If it doesn't work then is usually means that you haven't uploaded all files! Please ensure that all files are uploaded to there correct folders and try again.

The links do not work because the master page is in a different folder.

Please see the notes in the tutorial:

Note that this is also documented in the help.

Thanks Pablo :D ! That's resolved the problem.

It's a a shame you can't have the master page in a folder. That would help in terms of organizing site manager content.

Thanks for your help.

The reason for this is that links are relative to the page they are on, so if the page is in a different folder then they will be invalid when accessed from another folder.
