background images or style ?

Hello,

I`m testing OE pro for scheduled exports to CDs of websites running on Weblogic and it seems to work really fine. Also the greatest online support I`ve seen...

I have only one single problem I couldn`t figure out, a style entry in a TD is strangely changed when downloaded :

in my original page I have :

<td style="width: 91; height: 0" ><img border="0" src="/media/hpcii_cdrom/images/navigation/home/app_link_side.gif" width="91" height="126"></td>
<td style="width: 162; height: 0" rowspan="2" background="/media/hpcii_cdrom/images/navigation/home/app_link_bttm.gif" valign="top">

in the downloaded file I get :

<td style="width: 91; height: 0" ><img border="0" src="../media/hpcii_cdrom/images/navigation/home/app_link_side.gif" width="91" height="126"></td>
<td style="width_3A 162; height_3A 0" rowspan="2" background="/media/hpcii_cdrom/images/navigation/home/app_link_bttm.gif" valign="top">

As you can see the second TD style is changed and the background image link is not modified to a relative path and even not downloaded.

If you have any clue...

Also, I was wondering if there was a way to simplify the exported filenames to avoid the long names with part of the URL query string when using Joliet or the short short name with ~1.htm when using 8+3...
A mix between with the original long file name without the query string added with a number could be nice
for example : some_detail_page.jsp@current_home_name=personal+cd+1&current_code=pec&folder_id=254081499e1.htm
some_detail_page.jsp@current_home_name=personal+cd+1&current_code=pec&folder_id=254081500e1.htm
could just become :
some_detail_page.jsp~1.htm
some_detail_page.jsp~2.htm
etc...

Is there a way to use Macro into the filenames generated during export?

I`ve not tested the ZIP or MHT format but I`m not sure it is fully compatible with all browser, is it ?

Thanks for your answers,

Hello again,

When I put the style at the end of the TD it works fine !
I suppose it is parsing the style in place of the background or something like that...

<td style="width: 91; height: 0" ><img border="0" src="/media/hi_cdrom/images/navigation/home/app_link_side.gif" width="91" height="126"></td>
<td rowspan="2" background="/media/hi_cdrom/images/navigation/home/app_link_bttm.gif" valign="top" style="width: 162; height: 0">


Thanks

Dear Fabrice Courtois,

Thank you for your kind words and for the bug report. I am in a vacation now, but I will fix it once I return in April.

The Joliet standard allows 64 symbols in filenames, which looks too much for you, while 8+3 is too small. But I am afraid that adding more filename styles will only confuse people. Is it really important to have that option?

Please let me know how you would use Macros in the Export? If you use AutoExport parameter in the URLs field of the Project, all Macros work well there.

ZIP format is not compatible with MS IE directly, but you can browse it on Windows XP, because it represents it as a simple folder. MHT format can be easily read by MS IE.

Best regards,

I just fixed the problem. Here is the updated oe.exe file:

I am sorry that it took so much time.

Yes, can you please give me a URL that reproduces that.

Oleg.

Dear Oleg,

i`m sorry, but the site is inhouse. I just can give you the HTML code.

<td style="WIDTH: 182px" vAlign="top" noWrap align="left" background="../Images/head_0.gif"><a href="/architekturportal"><IMG style="WIDTH: 159px; HEIGHT: 70px" hspace="0" src="../Images/itergologo.gif" width="159" vspace="0" border="0"></a></td>

<td style="WIDTH: 24px" width="24" bgColor="#666666"><IMG height="5" src="../Images/1t.gif" width="1"></td>

The background attribute in the first TD-Tag will not be translated to background="/Images/head_0.gif" like it happend in the 2nd TD-Tag. Only if I change the order of the attributes (background first and then style) it works.

But I have another hint for you. Characteristic for the bug is, that it only happend to documents in the root-folder of the site. In the other documents the linktranslation works properly.
