Basically, I want to have a Public area of the site which never asks for authentication, and a members-only are which does, but I don't want to confuse the Public by making them click the [Guest] button ever.
Hello there, I've set few text boxes per layout that work as "tutorials", with one button called "help" that changes one global field [tutorial] from Yes to No (and vice versa), commits the record.
When the global field "tutorial" is set to yes, all the "text boxes" should hide, when it is set to no they should apear. It works perfectly in the fm client but when I got to the web even if I change the field to Yes or No in the client and save the record, the web still shows all the text boxes.
It looks like the the "hide when" is simple not working. Using
table::tutorial = "yes"
Did a test having the a tex field for the tutorial showing on the layout, it looks like the webdirect is not seeing the field content at all. It shows as empty on web and Yes or No on the client.
We have a development that if accessed by regular Filemaker Pro the button (via Open URL) that links to a document (word file) it does open the application (MS word) resulting a very satisfactory behaviour for users.
But the same stuff when running with WebDirect the Chrome gets an
"not capable of opening the window; please deactivate the popup window blocker and try again". Well needless to say that that blocker is not active (under preferencies) and the IS manager of the net also verifies it is not blocked at her level.
Also firefox, same machine, is not able to open the application; in this case with no alarm / action at all.

So, We have a unix admin working on our Mac OSX server. I specifically instructed them not to break our Filemaker 13 Apache install. Well it looks like they worked on the machine but broke one thing.
Does anyeone know where I should look to fix this?
Webserver servers files fine from the Filemaker HTTP Folders.
Filemaker WebDirect works fine.
PHP is working.
PHP is indicated as ON in FMSA Admin.
Admin pages at http://localhost:16001/admin-consolework fine.
Admin screen shows green on Webserver. Indicates PHP is enabled.
This is the only thing that is not working:
Previous PHP pages which has successfull connection to databases no longer connect to the database.
I assume that a reference to filemaker somehow got removed from one of the php config files, but I don't know where.
Can anyone give me an idea where to look?
There are several methods for creating standard icons in a file: regular container, paste the image directly on the layout, use text Webdings ... but recently I have used placing the image in Inspector > Appearance > Background Fill with image. In this way, the icon can change color on highlight etc. Then this style is saved to a custom theme.
The advantage is that I can import these 'icons' between files (by importing themes) and I can save them to the theme so it changes throughout a solution automatically. This is particularly advantageous when I have several companies sharing a single solution because I can change icons to match their theme colors.
The problem: When opened in web direct, all I get is a solid-colored square. I know normally we make separate layouts for web direct but in this current situation, the existing layouts will work perfectly except for a few of these buttons. And regardless, I would have the same issue on a web direct layout.
I've tried many different types of icons and images but I am no Images Master and I do not understand the differences in rendering on why images placed in Appearance::background (images) will not work on Web Direct. Before I give up on this idea for this project, because it is truly my preferred approach, do others have suggestions on image quality or type which might allow this to work?
