@tomgreenfield
anyhow, just a roundabout way of saying there's not an AT bug here per se!
Chuck Lorenz
@chucklorenz
hmm, are you saying that if the properties.schema of boxMenu were to be updated with a section for contentObjects that we could achieve this??
annie-leonhart
@annie-leonhart
Hi, thank you for this. I already solve the page header background image but using framework then uploading it to authoring tool. the one that still puzzles me is the pageBody that doesn't reflected in submenu even if bypassing/overriden in framework, but when importing in AAT, it doesn't reflect. but i'll just check what oliver foster said about that. thank you
Chuck Lorenz
@chucklorenz
exactly what I mean, @tomgreenfield . Seems to me this is the way to go. Would you recommend I submit a PR for boxMenu in order to generate discussion? @oliverfoster ??
tomgreenfield
@tomgreenfield
it's deffo one for the wider team to discuss - obviously there may have been decisions made in the past for simplicity's sake
Chuck Lorenz
@chucklorenz
and decisions that were made prior to the development of the AT
tomgreenfield
@tomgreenfield
it looks like the new box menu configuration only landed with version 5 so the past is not as distant as i thought!
Guy Willis
@guywillis
It's likely that it was a simple oversight in the BoxMenu schema
Chuck Lorenz
@chucklorenz
@annie-leonhart yes, review what Ollie said. But this is the template that is used by boxMenu. Notice there is no mention of pageBody. This is the template used by the page. Notice that both body and pageBody are considered. Ollie offered a technique whereby you can override the boxMenu template in order to use pageBody. a) create a new theme within the framework; b) copy boxMenuItem.hsb from the core plug-in and paste it into myAdaptProject/src/theme/myNewTheme/templates (create the folder if you need to); c) modify this copy of boxMenuItem.hsb to use pageBody and save your work; d) zip up myNewTheme and upload it to the AAT using the plug-in manager; e) open the appropriate course in the dashboard and select myNewTheme for the course's theme; f) preview the course.

I have a problem I would really help with: I have this error message when trying to preview a course I am authoring in AAT, only when I include the FLIPCARD-AUDIO plug-in. Command failed: grunt server-build:prod --outputdir=courses/5ec4a2e80a55484546bab1b0/5ec8f1a3de3c825be173252f/build --theme=5ec4abac2b901d45cbe23969 --menu=adapt-contrib-boxMenu

Fatal error: {

]
}

I am completely new to Adapt and not a programmer, but I can access my server files if I have to modify any file such as flipcard-audio.less
thanks for any pointers anyone.

I also have this error relating to another plugin: Command failed: grunt server-build:prod --outputdir=courses/5ec4a2e80a55484546bab1b0/5ec8f1a3de3c825be173252f/build --theme=5ec4abac2b901d45cbe23969 --menu=adapt-contrib-boxMenu

Can anyone give me clues? Other plug-ins are giving me grief too. Some work fine, others give me these errors when I attempt to preview.

Can anyone say when the adaptlearning.org server is going to come back on-line? I would like to try and install plugins from their server, not github as I'm wondering if the plug-ins on the adaptlearning.org server will work better with my fresh server install of latest Adapt Authoring Tool. Thanks for any advice here. Cheers.

@johnniezen
@No-Smoke please see for which FW version these plugins are available, if you are new and installed everything fresh, the you are most probably on FW5, and from the top of my head, these were not. they are not Core plugins, so you need to go to the github page and see if you can create a PR and ask the developer to update
Chuck Lorenz
@chucklorenz
@No-Smoke because of the mismatch btwn Less variables used by the plug-in and what is used by Framework v5, you’ll need to provide a value for component-padding (e.g., component-padding: 20px;). You can add this in the course’s Custom CSS, found, I believe, in course>Project Settings.
If, as John surmises, adapt-flipcard-audio has not been updated to be compatible with FW v5, you can expect to see a couple more undefined Less variables. Simply continue to provide values in Custom CSS. Getting the developer to update the plug-in would be super. But this method is safe for the interim.

@chucklorenz thanks for the advice. Did my best with the custom css. No joy. deleted flipcard-audio plugin. installed flipcard from ExultCorp
/ adapt-contrib-flipcard... BUT, when I preview my project including a Component from this plug-in, the preview loads to the top menu (maybe a bit slower than usual), but clicking into any other page / submenu and the browser just shows those bubbles as if it is trying to load the content - but never loads the next level content. The developers notes in Github say it is compatible with framework 5+ and I found no other reports of issues in the forums... so is there something fundamental I might have to do on the server that might not have been done when I got my hosting company to install a fresh set up two weeks ago for me? I read notes on what the json files are supposed to do but I'm using the ATT. I could go find json files and edit them, but could it be a 'local / ATT' setting in the project for this plug-in? Any ideas? Thanks a lot.

@chucklorenz Cannot preview project with flipcard plugin component - the top menu loads showing me my content, but any attempt to click into another page or submenu - the browser (chrome or mozzilla) freezes into 'loading page' mode...

unfortunately, none of that information is helpful for solving your problem. @No-Smoke
Does the course work without the flipcards plugin enabled?

completionCalculations.js:123 Uncaught TypeError: children[i].getAncestorModels is not a function

this line is particularly worrying, but doesn't tell me anything more than Adapt is trying to assess a child which either isn't available or correct

@oliverfoster no, the course doesn't run if I include a flipcard component within the course.

I just made a new course with nothing but the default text component and the flipcards component and same issue. First page / top menu page comes up (slower than usual). Click into the page containing the flipcard component and the browser sticks in the 'loading content' mode where the three bubbles alternately pulse accross center of screen. Is there another flipcard plug in? (I tried flipcard-audio and that interrupts preview even before first preview page loads).
@oliverfoster Yes. Works perfect without flipcard component. (sorry to repeat this into the chat room - not sure if adding the @name makes a difference).

@oliverfoster my Framework is 5.5 with the latest Authoring Tool, as downloaded and installed two weeks ago. I suppose the plugins are not yet updated, so perhaps a matter of me being patient? I am really new to elearning, writing my first course, due in two days deadline. two weeks huge learning curve. Very happy I chose this opensource tool. Looking forward to plug-ins like flipcard, flipcard-audio being upgraded over time to work with Framework 5.5.

You need to leave an issue on the GitHub repository you got the component from.

Hello all. I have a small query. A course by me has got a small assessment in it. Now sometimes when the user is attempting the course, the questions come up as already answered
what could be the cause
