Of course I went through the pdf guide already. But, with all due respect, it doesn't seem complete. Please let me illustrate my problem.
How to Install?
Simply open the zip folder and copy the “newsflasher2.wbx” and paste that into your Webbuilder install folder…by default it is "C:\Program Files\WYSIWYG Web Builder 6"
OK, done. Not a problem - have done dozens of times before without issue.
Admin Link URL : Link where you uploaded the script “http:yoursite/admin” ensure the “/admin” is there.
The pdf goes from telling us how to paste the "newsflasher.wbx" into the WebBuilder install folder - straight into giving us the list of the variables. Very next thing is "link to where you uploaded the script". So far all I know is that I unzipped the file and pasted the extension into the WB6 install folder, I dragged the extension onto my page and tried to change the variables with what information I had and could get from the pdf, and then I published my page. If "uploading the script" is publishing it to my page, then my url link would be www.mysite.org/folder1/index.php
. That has nothing to do with "admin" but you say be sure you ensure the "admin" is there. Is where?? Where does the "admin" part factor in?
Target page for Admin link : blank, same etc (preferably keep default ‘_blank’)
Have no idea what you mean by "blank, same etc (preferably keep default '_blank')" That's exactly what I did . . . . left it _blank because I didn't know what else to do. So, what now?
How to use?
Drag the extension on your page and place it where you want. Update the variables and upload the page as ‘upload all’
Does this mean something other than drag the extension onto your page, update the variables and then publish? Dragging onto the page is not a problem, publishing is not a problem - updating the variables is a problem.
How to Edit/Add/ Delete news?
Login to your Admin panel online and use it.
LOL - sounds so easy. Sure - would do that if I could log in. But I can't. I log in using "admin" as a username - because there are no instructions (and apparently no fields in the "variables") for creating a unique username. I DID create a password in the "variables" but it just bounces me back to "Authentication Required" again. Another thing: you didn't say whether it's necessary to create other pages or not, and if they should be html or php. The pdf instructions talk later about updating the page by "uploading HTML only".
As I mentioned in another thread about the ClickNews extension that several of us can not get to work . . . you guys are brilliant, but most of us are not! You write instructions that make perfect sense to you because you've developed the extension, but one little piece of missing info and it makes no sense to us. I've gotten several extensions to work just fine - I ALWAYS read the pdf, but something is missing in this one. Same thing with the ClickNews extension that someone else built. Apparently several of us have given up on it because the pdf isn't clear.
