Who cares?

Lyn I brought a copy of Activ E-book Complier a few days ago. In all honesty I should ask for my money back or report this situation to Clickbank (they have a 48 hour limited on response from buyers using their service)
As I said it has been day, almost a week, and NOT A WORD from anyone.
I would like to know if anyone knows if pictures why when you save pages (html) in Word along with images  (all in the same source folder) why it does not show complier.

I am using Windows XP.

I guess the real question is: Does Complier work with Word - images when saved as an html doc.?

Plus, is there anyone else who have been TOTALLY ignored by the sellers of this product?

Alaska  Lyn -

 Sorry you're having difficulty getting a response from Sunil -but he's the sole author and may not be at his computer at all times, waiting for every user who has difficulties.

 Further, some issues, such as figuring out the basics of html and file handling, really isn't his job.  Html books and tutorials are everywhere. Those users often solve their own problems when they get familiar with web page troubleshooting.

 Sunil provides this forum at his own expense, as a meeting area where folks can ask and answer questions about Activ.  You can search the messages, or ask a question with a fairly prompt response.  But, keep in mind that we are ALL guests in Sunil's house here.

 I can tell you that Activ works just fine, if you follow the directions.  If you can give some details about your exact problem, perhaps someone could provide some insight for you.

 Most likely, it's how you've prepared your pages.  Saving from Word has it's own issues.

 Your first step: Have you tested your html pages in IE ?  Do the images show in the web page?  If so, and they don't show in the compiled ebook, then the images are probably in a folder.  Your image reference should be a simple <img src="filename.jpg">  with no path information.

 If you can't see the web page images, or you can't see them when viewing the page on other machines, perhaps you've embedded the images in Word by reference, and not the images themselves.

 If you still haven't found the solution, post the code that should display the images.  It can be fixed.

 best -

EBookCompiler Sorry for the delay

My email computer broke down, badly, so I was unable to do email until it got fixed. I've also had some family issues.

I haven't lost any email, I will catch up (I'm in the process of doing it now), and I will respond to every email personally. It may take me a few days to get thru them all as there is quite a backlog.

Regarding the question in this thread.  In Word, you need to set the Save Options before saving into HTML or Web page format.  If you don't do that the images are saved into the wrong folder, hence the problem of missing images.  There is a screenshot in Getting Started section of our Help which shows you how to do this. It's the one about Folder options.
