Release notes

The HtmlImage Suite

This suite provides a set of tools for managing the #images table of a website in the ODB. It will import images into the table and create links to images (in the form of aliases) through the table. See the #image->Documentation->Tools submenu for more information on the image management tools.

HtmlImage also provides a set of image style scripts to simplify the inclusion of various images for various purposes, while providing a consistent appearance. See #image->Documentation->Image Styles for information on working with image styles.

NOTE: For Frontier 4.2.3, you need the older version of HtmlImage, available at http://www.spinwardstars.com/frontier/f4/.


Dependencies

In order to do its magic, htmlImage requires the regex extension, version 2.0b8 or later, available from http://www.scriptmeridian.org/projects/regex.

HtmlImage uses the fileWriters abstraction mechanism if it is available. If you're using Windows and want to render directly to a remote (FTP) site, you will need Alan German's fileWriter.ftp, which is available from http://www.erols.com/asg/user/html/fileWriters/ftp.html. Alan's fileWriter.ftp uses Frontier's built-in TCP capability on both the Mac and Windows, so if you use it on Mac you won't need an external FTP program on the Mac to allow render-to-remote.


Documentation

Documentation is available via the #Image->Documentation submenu.
