Users that require special characters, from HFS 2.3 beta 270, the UTF-8 charset in the head is picked up properly by HFS.

It was relying on the head section from the main part of the template. I use a code layout that makes it quicker for me to edit in Live 3.0.1, resulting in HFS not displaying special characters.

This is definitely a great improvement from the last version. ;D I've been looking into adding a rename and create folder option but unfortunately I can't seem to integrate them very well like I have with my current server running the original Live 3 system.  The rename and create folder options are absolutely essential to make a working server system.  What are the chances that they'll be included in the next release?  I've toyed around with the idea of adding all the cool features of live 3.0.1 to my original version, but I'm having problems with that too. 

Also, what's the status of the flash upload feature?  If you haven't checked out this website, do it.  They've got a boatload of awesome scripts including a few flash uploaders.  Maybe you could study those and see if you could implement them in the next version.

I'm thinking of purchasing the AJAX multi uploader (though it requires PHP).  It's just freaking awesome.  If we could add something like that to Live 3, that would be incredible.

Actually I've gotten everything pretty much figured out so far.  Is there any way you could send me the original buttons without the icons on them so I can make matching buttons?  I tried to edit them in Photoshop, but there's just not enough of the visible button to sample.....

Loving the look and function of this template, but just a couple of things...

I use copious amounts comments to describe what's in the folder. What I am describing can usually not be explained in a single line of text. I can put multiple lines of text in the comments, but the Live template just puts a, nearly imperceptibly small, scroll bar in the drop-down. And it's all but impossible to move the mouse pointer to said scroll bar without moving it too far and losing the drop-down altogether.

I know the item info drop-downs can be disabled, but then I cannot use comments at all. Is there a way around this issue?

@etherknight - I can't help the large comment thing, Live is a simple template, therefore it has simple one liner comments. I don't think having large comments on files is good practice anyway, add a readme.txt to the directory or something.

@sapphirescales - sent you a pm.

Thanks for the thanks everyone :), I hoped to provide at least the basic functionality so people can extend it, that is what a template is for!

Live is a 'simple' template? I am new to templates, but so far it's the most advanced one I've seen. What's more, there are far simpler templates (i.e. the default) that can implement this native function, and allow HTML tags on top of that.

And I am not talking about 'large comments' here; I use comments on every folder, but not on files at all. Most comments are less than 5 lines. I just want my users to know what is in that folder, and I need more than a single line of unformatted unformattable text to do it. I mean, come on! I expect a certain level of function for the zero dollars I paid to get this!  :D

No worries, it's still like freakishly more awesome than anything I could ever do, so all props go to you! And I find Terayon can get the job done. I just miss the whiz-bang UI of Live  :-[

By simple I mean the UI, is simple, using JavaScript so heavily for the additional features was a way of keeping the interface simple, it hides away the functionality of HFS, until you need it. The code may be complex, but it creates a simple user experience.

There are several reasons I chose to have small one line comments. The main being the room available, you could make the tooltip take up two module areas (just have to adjust some numbers), and end up with a larger paragraph block of text viewable. As for not being able to format the comments, its a limitation of the tooltip implementation - and not one I plan to remove any time soon. The other way of doing it, required even more HTML, increasing the DOM and complicating the javascript further, it was crashing browsers. This method is enough. I could possibly enable line breaks in the next version, but it was purposely limited - considering Live 3.0.0 had zero comments, this is a massive improvement.

etherknight, consider TSG is not the only one who can make the changes you want.
there's nothing hidden in this project, you (or someone else) can customize.

I seem to have run into a bug with the image preview functionality. It's a little difficult to explain but I'll give it a shot.

When you click the image preview for a photo, the "lightbox" type popup window comes up very small, so small you can only see the previous/next arrows and close/resize controls. You can drag this out to make it bigger but it messes up the aspect ratio.

The second part of this problem comes when you click either next or previous; the entire image box shifts down ~200 pixels. This continues to happen with each consecutive click on the next/previous buttons until the entire image box is partially off the browser window.

I made a quick recording to illustrate this issue here: http://www.screencast.com/t/9V4WEdeYSi

I used the latest version of HFS 2.3 beta build 272 and the Live template v3.0.1. Tested in Chrome 8, Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3.5 using Windows 7 x64 and x86.

I heard that jQuery removed a functionality from the recent build, was wondering if it effected the template.

A simple fix, change line 79 to the below (or remove that line and link the packed jQuery hosted locally) that is the jQuery build I made it on, and its the version packed with the template. This should fix it, if not... then its something else that I do not know, it works here now.

Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
I will update the hosted archive with this fix too.

Next version will hopefully have an updated lightbox from topup, to account for this change, and let me update jQuery to suit it, jQuery stayed at 1.4.2 for a long time so that is quite a stable build, these last two have had issues.

Thanks for the speedy response! This seems to have fixed it (I replaced line 79 with the aforementioned code), though I am still getting a tiiiiiny shift upon clicking next/previous. Seems like it's only 1 pixel right/1 pixel down so it's not that big of an issue, I'm sure it will get straightened out eventually. Again, thanks for the quick fix!

I have been looking through the template and I can't seem to find the line. What to do i need to change to get full file names? I need it to show the full name of files as it's cutting file names short and my users do not know the music track.

Thanks
