reediting previous slideshows

Postby madhaka » Fri Jan 13, 2012 12:58 am

Hello everybody. Total newbie here. Really neat tool, you' ve got.
Now, once you've made a slideshow, posted it and gone on to create more,
can you come back, reload, and reedit a previously edited slideshow.
I was not able to locate the path to access an existing slideshow.

Hi,

You can find the URL to reset the Editor to your settings inside your highslide folder in a file named editor-config.txt
Your images will be deleted from our server after a while. We canÔÇÖt tell exactly how long they will remain on the server since the oldest images on the server will be deleted when new images are added.

Hello Hilde
Thank you for your advice, it worked.

I pasted the very long URL into the browser navigation bar
and it sent me to the front page of the HighSlide editor.
When I clicked on 'get started', it opened the image manager
at the sought-after previous collection. So far so good.

When I requested a reedit for a slideshow that was created
in December, I got some generic images. So I guess about
one month is the time-frame for holding onto your stuff.

Its OK though, because you can still edit the source-code and
the '.css' file in DreamWeaver and update both the pictures
and the comment overlays and change them all you want.

Cheers

Guy

P.S. No wonder I couldn't find the path to load a previous
effort. Its not obvious at all. Would you consider including
a 'load file' command in the editor front end?

Hi Guy,
I will send your suggestion to Torstein, the Highslide developer.
