FMP 13 - Web Direct - Improperly displaying list layout with sub-summary parts

(public link for this doc)



I am having a problem with Filemaker Pro 13’s Web Direct handling of a simple list layout with sub-summaries.  


The sub summaries, when added, seem to be cutting off the first (or last*) row of detail in the body.  

* If the sub-summary is above the body it cuts off the first row.  

* If the sub-summary is trailing the body, it cuts off the last row of detail.

(this example includes 5 records which should be grouped into three groups (by ID number).


Hopefully these diagrams help:


I also attached a PDF version of these diagrams.

Wow, I'm having the SAME issue with FileMaker 18 WebDirect. After some experimentation I have found a possible workaround.

You can replace a Leading Grand Summary with a Header if you use a Title Header or Top Navigation as well, and you can replace a Trailing Grand Summary with a Footer if you use a Title Footer or Bottom Navigation as well. Basically if you use a Title Header/Footer and/or Top/Bottom Navigation, then the standard Header/Footer parts don't get repeated every page and can take summary fields. This has eliminated the above problem for me. It's not a perfect solution and it may have other consequences based on your own layouts, so YMMV.

      Dear All,
      We have installed FileMaker Server 18. We have added a custom SSL certificate to FileMaker Server 18. On FileMaker Pro, we can view the green encrypted symbol and can able to access the Server DB. But on FileMaker WebDirect, we can't open the Server DB using the Domain name. We have received the error "No such file or directory" on connecting externally. On the internal network, we have received the error "Rejected request from RFC1918 IP to public server address" when we opening the WebDirect using Domain name.
      Can anyone help us to solve this issue?

      We have a Filemaker 17 Server set up and running on a mac mini (sorry, I can't get on right now to find out which OS it is running).  We have set up everything so Web Direct can be used to access a web page for making appointments and filling out forms.  We have several different versions running on several different servers (eye doctor's offices) but this one won't work.
      We have ... 
      Set up web direct on the server, installed the certificate, gotten an external ip address, forwarded the ports, turned off all firewalls and it still doesn't seem to work.
      I have used fmsadmin to see if web direct is running.  When I try to start it, fmsadmin says it's running.
      Yesterday when I was comparing the processes running on the mac mini FM Server is running on to a different mac mini running FM Server I noticed there are a lot fewer processes related to web direct running on the computer that the web page won't open on.

      Does anyone have any ideas that can help me figure out what is causing this?  And, if you need more information, let me know

      Using web direct on iPad for the 1st time with iPadOS and pretty much a nightmare of constant screen redraws.
      Can anyone confirm they’re seeing similar issues? Can’t use Go as need Base Elements. 
      Any techniques to limit screen redraw on Web Direct?
      iPadOS draws editing tools at the bottom of screen when the user is editing a field. I’m theorizing Web Direct is dealing with this extremely poorly.

      I am exploring accessing my solution through web direct using fmphost.
      solution works fine in server mode.
      however in web direct it says I do not have a sufficiently new version of scribe: I need > 2.15.
      problem is that I’m running 3.08 on my local Mac.
      is this an issue about file locations? Do I need to upload scribe or something?

      Somehow java updated (probably by mistake) and it killed web direct. Simply down grading java does not work. I've went as far back and un-installing java and then FMS. Then rebooting and performing a clean install of FMS. FMS 16.04 on windows server 2012 R2
      My hunch is something is wrong with all the site settings in IIS from uninstall and re-install.
      I get this error during deployment when trying to use web direct:
      Test web server ( Error code = 404 What are the complete steps to restore web-direct? Thank you
