Warning! Warning! Warning!
This is still in testing stages. You are welcome to play with it and try it out but I need feedback from people using it before I consider it stable. I've done all the testing I can on my own.
These are the instructions on how to use Athelon's multi-location room builder.
Create a blank room. You'll need to remember the room name (include the @ tail) to fill it into a setup script later.
Snag the multi.js file and upload it to your room. Note the URL, you'll need to change that below.
Next, you'll need to go through the four "embed" points, the four points where you can type in what goes into the room and put in this info.
|Room Text Left Side Chat Box||<div id=chatleft></div><div id=roomlist></div>|
|Room Text Under Chat Box||<div id=underchat></div>|
|Text for Top Level of Room||<div id="roomtop"></div>|
Be sure to change the URL of the multi.js and config.js file the location of YOUR room directory.
If there is anything that should always show in *all* views of the room, include them now in the above embed points. It is extra-important that you do this for anything containing #r-soi@soi(room links) because the [current] multiLoc code does not handle them.
At this point the room will still not function correctly. There is a file missing. That file contains the entire secret to the room. We'll create it now.
Open the builder up in a separate window or tab.
(Yes, I know the builder is rather on the lame and brain-dead side. Its funky and clunky... but it works. I might make it a bit nicer in the future, but since it did work I wanted to get it out to as many of you as I could.
If you do NOT have a config.js file, click on "Load Blank Data"
If you *do* have a config.js file, cut-and-paste it into the extry box below.
(The easiest way to do this is go to Controls - FTP Files - *roomname* and then find where it says "Create File:" Type 'config.js' into that space and hit the [EDIT] button right next to it. Don't worry, if the file already exists, you will be in edit mode.
Then click the NEXT button
