in reply to: ALLOW ELEMENT DRAG SWAPPING & HTML EDIT
The only time you’re going to have issues dragging divs/col/etc. is if it is a locked component which then obviously you won’t be able to drag anything around in.
It’s as simple as pie to rearrange your HTML components in the Overview pane and much less hassle as well. More control, more accuracy etc. Click the item in your HTML pane and it will highlight it in the Overview pane so you can find it. Pretty easy to do. No need for HTML dragging of code (editing content, yes, that I would still love to see in the HTML pane)
There are no direct messages on the forums, sorry.
What part of the information is it not clear on? If I know where you’re stuck I can help better. Everything you need for making links, button links, etc. is all in the Components list and all you need to do is drag them to the location in the Overview Pane that you want them to be. You can drag them directly to the Preview window as well, but you have more control if you do it in the Overview panel.
From there you then click on the link in the Overview tree and then enter the link information in the Options pane. Not much else to it. Let me know if that helps or where you’re stuck and I’ll try to clarify it better.in reply to: UI / Editor in separate window
Also of note on this would be to make sure all the panels are resizable and that the content area stretches “with” the sizing so that any text areas can be fully visible at any given time. There should be no fields that are cut off if we stretch them out far enough to accommodate them.in reply to: Media queries for phone text size and page border
Yes I agree they could do that too, not sure what they will do if anything, just saying that judging by the amount of time they are on the forums, it’s highly unlikely that they will want to add another chore on top of the work load they already have which keeps them from coming in here often. Lots of us have forum experience, but that’s not what I want to do lol. I get accused of being nasty enough as it is 😛in reply to: BSS website folder and workflow
Images should be edited “before” putting them into the pages and should be imported into BSS after editing them in order to use them easier. BSS will manage your images in it’s own setup inside the Assets folder. You can create folders in the Images folder within the App so you can organize them how you need them.
You cannot auto import anything within any folders inside BSS, you’ll need to do this manually by either creating a directory and mass importing the images to that directory, or importing the images and moving them into directories if needed.
BSS will give you the option to overwrite if needed as well, so if you’re replacing an image it will pop that window up to ask you if that’s what you want to do.
Now … to work around this so you don’t have to constantly export and replace the assets folder each time you do an image update what you can do is:
- Edit your images
- Import them into BSS
- Add and Upload them to your local “assets” directory and upload them directly.
This way your current live pages are up to date, and when you update your site next time the images are already set to go.
Not sure, but I’m going to suffice a good guess that changes on the forums will probably be things that shouldn’t need a lot of policing 😛 I love the idea Andrew, removing non-BSS, but that would really require a way to constantly alert the devs that things needed deleting and would also mean someone on the dev team would have to regularly police the thread. From what we’ve seen for dev traffic (no offense meant Devs, just an observation and assumption), I don’t think they have the resources or time to do that.
Would love it if it could happen though! +1in reply to: Language barrier of Online Components
I would have to agree with Marrco, there’s so many junk items on it, some of them are just basics that anyone can put together in 2 seconds. It really does need quite a bit of cleanup.
I don’t want to say they are all “outdated” since I do have a few sites that have used some that are still on Bootstrap 3 (no time to change them up to 4, too much work). I would think that if someone were to clean that list up they’d have quite a job actually since they’d have to decide what is good and what is bad (not that the bad ones don’t stick out all on their own as most do lol).
I most certainly don’t want to discount them just because they are in a different language either, personally I’d rather know what it says and judge it then rather than assuming it’s all bad stuff.
Although I’ve used a handful of the items, truth be told, it’s way too tedious of a job to search for things on it since we can’t actually see everything anywhere. There’s no way for us to really know what is out there without stumbling on some of them accidentally which is truly impossible for anyone wanting to just browse and see what’s in there. Of course, that’s been my main complaint on it since I started using the app so … yeah lol.
Now it’s just getting messy and what I “can” see in the only 2 sections it gives us default, is garbage to me.
I would love to have a place for Web Development Chit Chat, I don’t think we need another place for “idle” chit chat, you can find those anywhere lol so I agree there for sure.
I woud also love a place for Web Development Tips, Tricks & Resources – where we can share resources which right now has been done all over the place (recent post on free image websites comes to mind).
Welcome back Andrew, glad to see you’re checking out all that the improved BSS has to offer these days. Still has many things to go yet, but it’s definitely fully usable as a commercial or personal website builder now.
I fully agree on WordPress, I hate it actually. Not just because it’s bloated, but because too much of your website has to be (due to plugins) reliant on other people keeping their work up to date. I am a person that likes to keep all the work in one place and WordPress to me is like having way too many fingers in the pot lol.
+1 on a General forum where we can just chit chat about whatever, share resources, etc. that would be nice indeed.
Ah yes, but … compatible usually means that it will “work”, but what usually happens is all you can use is the plug and playability and the extra functions either don’t work or are extremely difficult to set up because Mac doesn’t always recognize some of the Microsoft button combo setups so it just says “Unknown” lol. I just got a new mouse, was “supposed” to be a gaming mouse with lots of buttons and features. It is, and it does have them I’m sure, but unfortunately the little mini CD they sent with it has only a Windows version of the software drivers for it. sighs
