I'm not quite sure how to get support for this. I've sent a support ticket but no reply. Please can someone help?

I've installed Skin pack D003 (BasicSkins, dotnetnukeskins.com) on top of DNN 4 and I've been trying to edit the Flash banner at the top of the page. This is FLASHBANNER.XML in the relevant Skins folder - /Portal/_default/Skins/.

I've changed the image pointers to other images and the text strings in this file and resaved it. However, it still insists on displaying the same old default images and text. Is there anything else I need to do?

I've followed the instructions below to the letter.

Thanks very much.

 

Customizable XML Based Flash Banner
To customize Flash Banner you need to modify the FlashBanner.xml file which you can find in the skins.zip file inside the downloaded skin pack.

 
 FlashBanner.xml structure
<slideshow … >
      <text_default … />
            <clip>
                  <image … />
                  <text …>Text1</text>
                  …
                  <text …>Text5</text>                    
            </clip>
            …
            <clip>
                  <image … />
                  <text …>Text1</text>
                  …
                  <text …>Text5</text>                    
            </clip>
</slideshow>

 
 General Slideshow Settings
By changing <slideshow> node attributes you can modify:
  • Width and Height of the Images
  • Image Alignment within the flash container (left, center, right)
  • Slide Show Speed (in seconds)
  • Continuous Looping option (true, false)

 
 Default Text Settings
Using <text_default> node attributes you can set default settings for the TextFields which can be overwritten by attributes of the <text> nodes.

 
 Text Settings
By changing <text_default> and/or <text> node attributes you can modify:
  • TextField Visibility (true, false)
  • Text Transition Speed (in seconds)
  • Text Transition Effect (fade, left fly, top fly, right fly, bottom fly)
  • Text Opacity (0 to 100)
  • Text White-Space Nowrap (true, false)
  • TextField Top and Left positions within the flash container
  • TextField Width and Height
  • Font settings: Font-Family, Font-Size and Color (FFFFFF for white, 000000 for black, etc.)
  • Font decoration options: Bold, Italic and Underline (true, false)
  • TextField Background Color (bgcolor="FFFFFF" for white, bgcolor="000000" for black, etc.)
  • Text URL Link (url="http://yourdomain.com")

Example: <text visible="true" speed="1" effect="right fly" opacity="100" wrap="true" top="75" left="15" width="400" height="25" fontfamily="Tahoma" fontsize="16" color="ffffff" bold="true" italic="false" underline="false" bgcolor="ffffff" url="http://yourdomain.com">Your Text</text>

 
 Image Settings
By changing <image> node attributes you can modify:
  • Image Source
  • Image Transition Speed (in seconds)
  • Image Transition Type (vertical blinds, horizontal blinds, top iris, left iris, right fly, fade, pixel dissolve, left wipe, right wipe, top wipe).

The default transition is "fade".

Example: <image src="media/image1.jpg" speed="2" transition="left iris"/>

 
 Common Tasks
 Change Images
To change Flash images:
  • Add new images to the media folder of the skin pack
  • Modify FlashBanner.xml file:
    • Change the 'width' and 'height' attributes in the <slideshow> node (all the images must have the same width and height)
    • Change the 'src' attribute in the <image> nodes

 
 Add New Images
To add a new image:
  • Upload the new image to the media folder of the skin pack
  • Add a new <clip> node to the FlashBanner.xml file

 
 Delete Images
To delete an image you need to remove the corresponding <clip> node from the FlashBanner.xml file.

 
 Change Image Transition
To change Image Transition you need to change the 'transition' attribute (vertical blinds, horizontal blinds, top iris, left iris, right fly, fade, pixel dissolve, left wipe, right wipe, top wipe) in the corresponding <image> node.

 
 Change Text
TextFields are optional. You can have up to 5 TextFields per slide.

To display a text you need to place it within a <text> node
  • Text is trimmed of white spaces at the beginning and at the end
  • Multiline structure of the text is preserved
  • Special characters like ‘ & < > must be replaced (HTML encoded) with &#39; &amp; &lt; and &gt; correspondingly

If you don't use TextFields, set attribute visible ="false" in the <text_default> and delete all the <text> nodes.

You can toggle visibility of a TextField by changing it's 'visible' attribute.

 
 Add URL Link to Text
To add URL Link to Text you need to add a 'url' attribute (url="http://yourdomain.com") to the <text> node.

 
 Change Flash Banner Size
In the skin pack we are using flash banners 590x140 in Horizontal and Vertical menu skins and 800x140 in Interior skins.

To change the flash banner size you need to change width, height and StageWidth parameters in AC_FL_RunContent function call, <object … and <embed … nodes in the skin ASCX file.

Hi Rich,

Stupid question: have you tried clearing your browser's cache?

HTH,
