When opening in X7 a file created in an  older version of WebPlus that has pngs with tranparency, it is necessary to select the image and use Edit Picture > Image Export Options tab and tick 'use PNG transparency'.

Properties > Site Properties > Background - selected color and images are not retained.

 

When a file with backgrounds created in earlier WebPlus versions are opened, the background information is lost in X7.

 

 

 

A. Go to the Site tab in the Studio on the right.

 
Select MasterPage > right click > select Properties > Background
 
Select 'use page background'
 
Add the background color/images as required.

Export as Picture now defaults to Computer instead of a folder.

 

A. Make sure to select an appropriate folder in Documents in which to save the picture.

Site Search not working.

 

A. WebPlus X7 is failing to upload the wpscripts/jsSiteSearch.js file

 

Publish to disk folder and if the *.js file is created, upload it manually to the hosst.

'A.'? Shouldn't that be 'Q.'??  :S

 

Publish to disk folder and if the *.js file is created, upload it manually to the hosst.

If the *.js file is created? What if it isn't?? (Actually, I think it always is created, or it should be, so until this is patched it's just a question of uploading it separately.)

Form field black lines:  how to change them, per Corniest

 

If you don't want any of your input fields to have a border, press Alt+S and add the line

input { border:none !important; }

after the /*Page StyleSheet*/ placeholder.

Q  .X7  -  Table data disappears when an *.sdb is in the same file.
 
 
A.  Workaround:  place the page with the RAL in a subfolder. See RAL page properties.
 
filename: something like ral/ral.html
 
Then, Merge to New Site.  Notice that the table retains the data and that the database merge is successful.

Q. How do I get inventory control without copying and pasting the code generated in paypal?

 

A. A server side or hosted shopping cart is needed to provide that function.

 

prestashop (serverside, free)

 

ecwid (hosted, not free for more than ten items)

 

Mal's mobile estore  http://www.malsweb.com/#/home (hosted, free, responsive)

Q. I can't insert the Google AdSense using the wizard.

 

A.  Serif's Patrick Connor reports that Google made some changes and that Serif is preparing a fix for X6 and X7

 

Meanwhile, just copy the HEAD part of the Google Adsense code and use Insert > HTML > click Add to Head

 

Copy the BODY part of the code and click Add to Body

 

All done.

 Using a panel to display an Iframe that points to a PHP file in X7, the problem is that if you set the panel to invisible and use an action on an image to show the panel it doesn't work in Firefox 26, seems to be only when pointing to a PHP file, thanks to the help of "richosr  Archibald Clitheroe Kid" here is the fix courtesy  of  richosr:

 

 

"It something to do with the way X7 handles the panel visibility and the code it uses that Firefox 26 doesn't like. I had a similar issue before when you hide a panel using the options in X7 and then try to unhide it using javascript to apply CSS.

Here is a workaround:

Edit the panel and take off the Panel is initially hidden checkbox.

View the HTML for the panel and add visibility:hidden; where shown below over the /*Add Style*/:"

 

 

<div id="panel_1" class="OBJ-2" __AddCode="here" style="position:absolute;left:111px;top:150px;width:738px;height:500px;visibility:hidden;">

Text spacing gone wonky?

 

How weird. I figured this would be the easiest of the glitches to test, so I tried it on a few site.  Opened up the X6 sites in X7, and found that all 3 are reacting differently.

 

One site has now accepted the text spacing patch, while another has not and still requires the "exactly" fix.

 

That same site now shows the navigation bar with no problem, but the other site is still having navigation issues.

 

I haven't checked the many other glitches, but I'm wondering if there is some special way of opening/importing the X6 site into X7 to ensure that the patches work?

Not that I know of, Bob.  I make a copy of the WP file to open in a later version and that's all I do.
