Coming soon - Ideas Genie Pro 6
« on: January 11, 2014, 10:34:14 PM »
I hope to release the beta version of Ideas Genie Pro 6 (IG Pro 6) soon.
Many changes :)

Bank Genie users: Please follow this topic - there is news for you  ;)

Heres a sneak preview of a new WPG (Web Page Generator).
Its additional to the IG Pro 5 WPG which we had fun with on this forum a few years ago.

1) Used to generate Garden Photo sets for my www.ideasforgardens.com website
http://www.ideasforgardens.com/Garden-Photos-0037/index.html
This project has 3 pages.

2) It doesn't have to be Garden Photos, so even Bank Genie users may find it fun :D
Here's the photos I took at our Nephews wedding on New Years Eve past.
http://www.flowergenie.co.uk/KathyAndMatthewsWedding/
That project has 5 pages of photos.

Ive tested the web sites with IE and Google Chrome on my Desktop computer and with Safari on our iPad.
If you use a different browser, I'd like to hear if it looks OK.

Footnote:
If you'd like to see a presentation with your garden photos, please send me a set of anything from 2 to10.
A short description of each photo would be useful.
I'd particularly like to make up a set of photos from users of Bonsai Genie.

Excellent!

Yes, a long awaited upgrade Laurie, due to the development cycle for Bank Genie.
Bank Genie is "moving" whereas the garden software is a bit slow - both completely understandable due to the recent and current climate of financial gloom.

Every upgrade, whether it be our Garden Software or Money Management software leads to new programming methods - a result of the quest to provide new features.
Many of the techniques which resulted from four years of Bank Genie development (for an upgrade from Version 3 to Version 4 :o) have been applied to Ideas Genie Pro.

Bank Genie users will be pleased to learn that there is a vice-versa - this much shorter upgrade (to Ideas Genie) has resulted in something new for them - to be continued :D

Using new web sites created with the new WPG - the subtle things.
Initially, the plan was to click on the thumbnail images to view the larger images.
That still works.

When I circulated the link to family members, Simon suggested that I needed forward and back arrows.
That took a while, but has been provided.

I had a surf on the net and on other sites I discovered that if you click on the large image, the next sequential image is displayed.
It now does that as well ;D

The end point is rather different.
In each case (click big photo or click forward arrow) the website will advance to the next page (if there is a next page) when the last image on a page is reached.
When the very last photo is displayed on the very last page, the web page does NOT have a Forward arrow.
Likewise when the first photo on Page 1 is displayed, there is no Previous arrow.
clicked.
Clicking on the image is rather different in that if you click on the LAST image on the LAST page, the web page for Photo 1 on Page 1 is displayed  :D

More things to play with (and more features to be explained :D

Another example - your little stories are much appreciated Eric :)

That one illustrates another feature.
The description for the second photo has a link to an external website.
This has far reaching potential - e.g. If its a plant, a link to the supplier where the plant or seed may be purchased
