  1. Our company still uses FMP 11 Advanced because hosting online via IWP is much, much cheaper than hosting with a modern version of FMP. Currently, we pay double to have two different FMP 11 databases hosted online. One database contains 900 records and is open to the public with no password, and the other has several thousand records and requires a password. In hopes of cutting our hosting cost in half, I would like to combine the two databases into one database, such that we need only pay to host 1 database. But our need to password protect certain records remains. In other wo
  2. When I try to turn on IWP within FM11 Advanced I get the following error: "Filemaker pro cannot start instant web publishing because filemaker server or another instance of filemaker pro is running on this machine." This, of course, is not true. Which is why I'm posting. I previously had a copy of FM10 Advanced installed on this PC. I installed a copy of FM11 Advanced using an upgrade disk. When this problem occurred I thought it may have been because it was still seeing some leftover files from the previous installation. So, I completely uninstalled Filemaker and even went thro
  3. Hello - I'm looking for a fuction or some way of showing the IP address of the logged-in user on a page of the database they are in. I'm using the current user name and date to show that, but need a solution for the IP address as well. Any ideas? No built-in functions for "GetUserIPAddress" that I'm aware of.
  4. Hi I can not fiddle out how to make it work. I have tried several browsers with same result. We are using FM 12 server. I tried this file paths file:///C:/file.jpg C:/file.jpg file://localhost/C:/file.jpg and few others I'm using this code in the Web Viewer which is working fine in FM client but not in browser "data:text/html, <html> <head> <style type=text/css> " & table::style & " </style> </head> <body> <div class='thumb'> <span class='helper'></span><img class='thumb' src='" & table::

  6. Good morning! I need some help getting something working. We have a company website, and we are trying to create a instant web publishing portal for our customers to login and view their open invoices. Pretty simple. We have all of our information on a FileMaker solution that is hosted with FileMaker Server 12. The problem is we can't get it to work the way we want it to. This is our idea and how we kind of want it to work. We want the have our customers create their accounts/passwords on our actual website. We will store their account information on our web server. We
  7. I have been able to deploy a database with instant web publishing of my FileMaker 10 database for camper registration to a non-profit summer camp. I have spent many hours trying to implement the send mail function via SMTP. Within FileMaker 10, using Port 587 I can successfully run a script that sends mail, but the same script does not work through the web (even though it is supposed to be compatible)...Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any advice, which is greatly appreciated.
  8. Whilst trying to find out how to detect mobile browsers (see this thread) I came across a feature which might be very useful in increasing the power of IWP. When clicking any button within IWP it seems it fires a JavaScript function in the form of top.iwp.[command]. This function then carries out the event/command. Therefore it's possible to look in the Frame Source for the IWP layout in question and find the command for a button, such as top.iwp.executebuttonscript(2,0,0). This can then be inserted into JavaScript within a Web Viewer. As far as I can tell once a button is inserted
  9. Sorry for this kind of question, but since all my questions pertain to IWP, and since none of my recent posts have received replies, and since there is an absolute dearth of replies in general here, I am wondering if FM Pro itself is no longer popular for web use? Thanks.
  10. Note the following article on FileMaker's website: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/408/~/open-url-is-not-working-when-used-via-instant-web-publishing They seem to offer us only a single, rather silly, solution: tell your viewers to disable pop-up blockers. But this is 2015. Mobile devices dominate. Pop-up blockers sometimes CANNOT be disabled. And even if you can, you probably SHOULDN'T! As such, it is quite foolish in this day and age for FileMaker to not offer us a more seamless solution. Nevertheless, I am posted this problem here to see if any of you know a workar
  11. Hi, I have a FileMaker database which is used via FMPro and IWP. I want to create some mobile-optimised layouts for users accessing the site on a mobile phone via IWP. http://detectmobilebrowser.com has some JS which I could put into the login page to detect a mobile, but there's no way to pass this to IWP. Does anyone have any ideas? FileMaker Go is not suitable in this situation. Thanks in advance
  12. Has anyone found away around the 60 minute timeout for Instant Web Publishing users. I find that a ridiculouse limit as my users are constantly having to log back in. I hoped there was a plugin or code or script of somekind available to increase that.
  13. Hi Guys, I ran into a problem using IWP: We wanted to supply our department with information stored in our FileMaker DBs - we've FileMaker 8 Server Advanced. The information is divided into several files. So i added external files to the solution and everything works fine in normal client mode - as expected. But as soon as we want to see our data in the browser the results get quite tricky. One external table works perfectly (i.e. the fields are filled with the correct data) but all fields from the other table are saying "file missing". Again, this happens only using IWP. I tried everythi
  14. My file is accessed with both Filemaker and IWP. According to the IWP user guideI need to do an 'Exit Application' script step, but only if the file is being accessed with IWP. What is my IF statement? I tried Get(ApplicationVersion)= ("Filemaker Web Publishing" or "Web Publishing Engine") but it's not working. Get(ApplicationVersion) seems to give me the host application version on both the host and the IWP client. I am testing it on the same machine I'm hosting it on if that could make a difference?
  15. Hello Fellow Filemakers! I have a IWP solution which is working well apart from a couple of issues with Portals. I have discovered that the "Go to Portal Row" does not work for IWP which is a headache for my users as they are often working with over 100 records in the portal I am referencing. So the problem is the portal resets to the top after my users interact with the records. I am thinking of adding two fields "Initial Row" and "number of row" and using the filter option on the portal to display the records the user specified. But I am drawing a blank on how to achieve this.
  16. I can't see what the issue is and have been getting this annoying message for ages. When I launch FM, I get the message - Can't share files... When I launch one of the two database I use, I get a message to say another user is sharing files using Filemaker, but this is a standalone desktop. Any ideas? FM10 Mavericks
  17. Hi, I have a databse hosted in IWP that uses Supercontainer for people to upload documents. The process works fine when I use FMPA 12 to access the hosted database, but when I go through the web browser (the IWP approach), the process does not work. A button "Upload Doc" calls a script that goes to the upload layout, generates the SC id code for the record, shows the webviewer with upload and delete buttons. This works fine when I am using FMP to access the database, but this does not work when I use IWP. When I click the button in IWP, nothing happens. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance!

  19. I have an application that was using IWP under FM Server 12, to allow my friends and friends of friends to upload their golf scores, and my system would calculate their USGA handicaps. After upgrading to FM Server 13, IWP not longer exists, and WebDirect does not support mobile devices. So, I set up an alternative server using FM12. A lot of guys that I don't have contact details for, used that IWP based system to upload golf scores. So I don't have a way to tell them all the new URL. Using the old IWP URL, you are presented with a screen that says "The requested page is not fo
  20. Hi I have a table that multiple users need to access. Is there a way (perhaps through PHP also?) to restrict what records particular users have access to, according to certain field criteria? Any help appreciated. Thanks
  21. I am looking for a way to scan a qr code into an IWP app from an ipad. Server is Filemaker 11 adv I know I can use an external bluetooth qr scanner but our people really want to use the camera on the ipad . I am unable to find a way to do this. anyone have any suggestions. please. Upgrading to 13 is not an option at this points. due to cost (45 users) and time to properly convert our databases. thank you
  22. Greetings. I am not sure this is the best location for this request. But here goes, maybe point me in the right direction if answers to this have been posted before. I have searched, but I suppose I don't even know what terms to search for. I have a FMP 11 DB that is published using IWP on 11 server. The DB is open to the public for browsing, but all edits are done by one or two people. For performance purposes, there is a bulk of data manipulations/calculations done when new data is entered. I know it is generally not good practice to store calculated values, but some reports need m
  23. Does anyone have any experience in trying to tie up these two bits of network garbage, so they can talk to each other? All I want to do is spit out a total price from the FMpro server IWP, feed it over to ePDQ and then receive back the payment confirmation from their Customer Payment Interface system. Any ideas, advice or should I just jump in the river right now? cheers- Anatole
  24. I have a layout that is rendered via IWP in FileMaker 12. On this layout I have a portal that displays related records (attachments). The process to add an attachment includes going to a new layout (which contains the SuperContainer web viewer) and creating a new record, adding the file, and then clicking a button which takes you back to the parent record. For some reason, when I navigate back to the parent record/layout, the portal doesn't show the record I just added. If I navigate to another layout and then back again, it shows fine. I also confirmed that it works as expected if I do the sa
  25. I am having some trouble with the web server after installing FMS 12.0.5. This is on Mac OS X 10.8.5. Server.app is currently installed, but it was not present at the initial installation of FMS (if that matters). I can't verify that this was working before Server.app did get installed. I also wasn't the one executing the initial installation of the OS, the OS patches, or FMS. This was a fresh OS install and thus a fresh FMS install as well. Reinstalling is an option, but would rather avoid it if there is some simple configuration issue that I need to clear up. I have tried an 'edit
