    It would seem that all themes need to include these properties for this component to work with all themes
    tomgreenfield
    @tomgreenfield
    the component in question is third-party though
    core-bundled components only use those kinds of variables in the theme itself
    Paul Steven
    @paul-mediakitchen
    Yes that's correct. I have not had this issue with any core plugins
    Paul Steven
    @paul-mediakitchen
    Ah OK that makes sense. So is this particular plugin I am looking at just a bit tightly coupled to Vanilla and I would need to rejig it to work with other themes?
    tomgreenfield
    @tomgreenfield
    yep, that's right. the plugin author hasn't done anything wrong per se; it's third-party so won't ever have corresponding styling in vanilla. we do the same with kineo-made components e.g. https://github.com/cgkineo/adapt-hotgrid/blob/master/less/hotgrid.less#L104

    Thanks @tomgreenfield - we use the Learning Pool Adapt Builder so I was trying to get this to work in that using their Salsa theme that does not have any of these properties. I think I probably just need to roll my own version
    I had wrongly assumed open source components would play nicely with the LP themes
    Paul Steven
    @paul-mediakitchen
    Which is kind of annoying as ideally I would like to create a component that can work in LP Adapt and open source
    tomgreenfield
    @tomgreenfield
    it's probably more the fact that the proprietary themes are older and haven't been based on vanilla 5 (for framework 5 support)
    all this talk of salsa is making me hungry

    @paul-mediakitchen
    Thanks @tomgreenfield for your replies - really helpful. Haha yes and still at least an hour until lunchtime
    Out of interest, is there some sort of guidance on creating a new theme that stipulates mandatory properties?
    tomgreenfield
    @tomgreenfield
    not sure
    as in not sure there's guidance, and not sure there's such a thing as a mandatory property. third-party components have just been styled to work with vanilla since it's in the core bundle

    @paul-mediakitchen
    Ok no worries and thanks. As the OS version only has one theme that makes sense
    Hi All, Can any one help with an issue that i am facing while installation?

    @sans535 please could you not post the same question in multiple chat rooms

    @sans535
    @moloko My objective is to get a help and not to bother you.
    Matt Leathes
    @moloko
    @sans535 people are more likely to help if you give more background information such as what:
    • you're trying to do
    • version of adapt you are working with
    • version of supporting software (Node, Git etc) you have
    • OS you're using
    • you've tried so far
      and so on...

    Hello, thank you for the amazing open-source product. I am looking to integrate in an edu-tech product, where once a user registers, they would automatically have an account created for them in the adapt_authoring tool, where they can go on editing. Is there any API for the adapt-authoring tool where I can create users, courses, etc.?

    Btw - the edu-tech product is being create in Flask (Python web framework) so I'm looking for any REST APIs that will connect to my instance of the adapt-authoring tool.

    Thanks in advance

    I am using Adapt Framework version 3 to create a project while creating project, i am facing below challenges:

    1. To make Floating Video, I want to toggle a class name in the div while the video is offscreen due to window scroll.
    2. Where to add my custom css like key-frame etc. so that it will call automatically.
    3. Can i use my custom javascript code? In which file, I can add my custom code.
    4. Also i want to integrate
      https://alvarotrigo.com/fullPage/examples/responsive.html#firstPage
      Is our framework allow to do this? If no then what is the alternative of this.

    Thanks in advance for your support.

    Hi all. Just a general question really. How common is it these days for an LMS to display SCORM content in an iFrame? I just want to get a feel for if displaying in an iFrame is fairly common these days still or if things have changed and it is less common?
    Matt Leathes
    @moloko
    @amitthakur2601 have you had a look at the 'pause when offscreen' functionality of the adapt media component? that should give you plenty of clues as to how to do 1.

    @vishnupsatish please could you avoid posting the same question in multiple chat rooms, thanks.

    i didn’t mean use it as-is i meant look at how it is implemented and use that figure out what you need to do for your solution.

    hi, i have a quesion on authoring tool, when we are in a course and press exit button, the exit popup opens, press No now and cancel this popup, now the page does not scroll downwards and will not show the components developed further down. the page seems to be locked at that point and we can only scroll up. can anyone help on resolving this issue.

    Just read a thread about AVIF extension support, is that also possible in Adapt? seems to compress images by at least a factor 2 with minimal loss
    inquiring, as we like to explore this for our trainings
    Matt Leathes
    @moloko
    @johnniezen depends whether you mean purely in the Framework or in the Authoring tool also.
    currently .avif is only supported in Chrome by the way
    Presumably Edge as well - if not now then soon
    but will never be supported in IE11
    (confirmed: not currently supported in Edge)

    @moloko Hi Matt, we work mainly in the AT, but Mozilla announced they are also going to make it available in 86. So besides Chrome, Edge and Brave, also FF will get it.
    Ooh, I had another comment it did, will check
    And we do not use IE11
    In fact we state in our LMS that users should only use Chrome or Firefox
    Matt Leathes
    @moloko
    very sensible!
    Well I assume the AAT would need to add support for that file type
    but otherwise I don't see anything that would prevent you from using it

    Hi, I am new to Adapt learning and seems to be hard to find any howto videos to get started. Where can I find them? For example at the end of a page I would like to have a link to the next page without going through the main menu. Can I do this? And preferably the last part of the page indicated if the student has done 100% of the page or if something is still undone (accordion is not fully clicked open etc). Can I do this with Adapt learning?
    Matt Leathes
    @moloko
    @SynnytyksenABC_twitter if you search YouTube for 'adapt learning' that usually gets plenty of results. some are quite old though so check the date the video was released
    Kineo's pageNav component will give you the option to navigate to the next page. you can:
    • have the button 'lock' until everything on the current page is complete or,
    • use the pageIncompletePrompt component to show an alert telling the learner they haven't done everything if they try to leave the page
    Marjaana Siivola
    @SynnytyksenABC_twitter
    Thank you. Yes, some of the videos were quite old, so I need to use more time to find the new ones.
    I will check out these ones that you mentioned.
