Slideify 0.93b (public release)
Howdy, folks. The newest and hopefully-now-fully-working version of the Exchange→slideshow conversion script is ready. You can download it here; the Versions text file will tell you which version to grab.

At this point, it's probably safe to pass this along to others, as hopefully any remaining problems are minor. This version also includes a revised Instructions file which I think is a little smoother.

If you had a previous version, you can just overwrite it with this one.

The glitch seems to have been worked out. I was able to convert all of the chapters it wouldn't do yesterday, plus all of the rest.

It's also much faster than it was yesterday.

Thanks again!

Huh, it should work on things you've archived. Just to double-check, are these chapters ones you saved via your web browser as html? If so, can you re-open them with a web browser?

(Oh, and, of course you're welcome. ^_^)

htm is the same thing, it's just Windows tends to curtail any extensions longer than 3 characters. If you can't flip through the story in the browser, though, yeah, it's the way they're saved. Two possibilties I can think of for why it doesn't work: one is that you didn't save the a full archive (there should be a directory full of images and such as well as the htm file), or the other is you moved the htm file but not that directory. Other than that, I'm not sure.

And, oops on the template file... I forgot I was going to test template editing and put something in the instructions about it. Like totally forgot, sigh. :(

Yes, actually, you can modify that file in OpenOffice. I would recommend making a backup first, and you shouldn't change the first slide, but the other two should be fine to change fonts, background, placement, etc. It should be safe to experiment as long as you've got a backup of the original just in case. I'll go take a look at it myself and put up a new post, with apologies to the folks who've already converted their whole corpus.

Oops, I take that back; I just found a bug in local-convert. Grr.

Thanks for this, I thought I tested that part but obviously not extensively enough.

Okay, for some reason, changing the template file does something odd to the rest of the conversion. Since that wasn't the intention, I'll have my SO take a look at that since I can't figure out why it would cause the error it is. So, until further notice, I'd say don't edit that file.

I get the exact same error as Lea does when trying to edit the template - actually I was also trying to edit the text box.

Anyway, this has been incredibly helpful already as is, saved me countless hours of manual work. So thank you!

Puddinroy pointed me towards it, and I have to agree, this is a fantastic program and an amazing time-saver. Thank you for writing it and even more for making it public.
