Re: Email a Preview?? new [re: bluepennylady]  

Well, that's basically (or maybe exactly) what I did. I queued the Lot (just put any old numbers where needed), uploaded the images as if listing it, then cancelled out of the listing process. Then I opened the Preview and saved the source code. Then I uploaded it to my ISP's web space. I did it again just now to check the process, and as before, the image didn't appear. You still have to edit the source code in Notepad to change the image URLs to match what they are when they get to your image host. The Preview has the addresses as just what's generated within AW. I'm probably not using the correct terminology, but I think you get what I mean. Here's an example:

http://members.dslextreme.com/users/emailshere/5752Preview.html

The "broken" image URL is

http://members.dslextreme.com/users/emailshere/LotImg15495.jpg

and the source code shows it as

LotImg15495.jpg

whereas it needs to be

http://www101.pair.com/tic/aw2k2008/aw2k/LotImg15495.jpg

and here it is with the code fixed:

http://members.dslextreme.com/users/emailshere/5752Previewedit.html

I don't see how AW would get the actual address of the uploaded pics into the Preview code. Seems like you'd always have to manually edit that part.

Sue,

Thom said to use the "Preview" on the Listing window itself instead of cancelling the listing and going back to the Auction lot. There is a "Preview" button to the left of the description field on the LIster window. That is the "Preview" he suggested using.

Did you try that?

Oh! (lightbulb lighting up over head)....that Preview!

Now, I get it. Sorry, dense. I never even noticed that button. Tried it just now and it worked perfectly. Thanks Thom and Judy!

Sue,

Well had I gone ahead and told you to use that Preview yesterday your task would have been much easier. I started to and then decided the other way would work. Although it is a whole lot more work. I am sorry I didn't say something about the "Preview" on the Lister window. I know to use that one for all kinds of trouble shooting etc. Just had a brain freeze I guess.

Maybe it was a fevered brain..... I was home in bed running a temp with a bad cold. Does that count for a good excuse??

Yes, a virus counts. As well as fever, fatigue, overwork, brain overload, agedness, sore feet, pesky relatives, and just life in general.

Sue,

Well then I'll claim virus, fever and tired all at once!

I spent the entire weekend in bed, literally. In warm flannel jammies, thick down comforter, hot tea, kleenex box, laptop and TV. Hubby pulled rank and told me I wasn't going anywhere so I just took my laptop. Slept, typed and watched TV, slept, typed more and watched more TV.. Hardly ever do that.... Kinda of nice other than the stinking fever coming and going. Today I feel human although I am fairly certain my head is going to be stopped up forever

Well off to go fix my kids computer. Onboard LAN seems to be disabled, not working or dead. So gotta tear it apart so grandkids can hit the blue "E" grandma and get on their "INternet" and play their school games...

What a grandma won't do for the grandkids...
