How to Set Site Root and Resource Folder Correctly?


In "Global > Resource Folder" panel, you can set Site Root and Resource Folder for resource files used in the menu, including Javascript files, SWF/XML files. You should set the root directory of web server on your local system and set the corresponding directories for resource files, thus the Flash menu works correctly both Intranet and Internet. When publishing the menu, you should also upload the resource files into the directories you set here.

3 steps to set Site Root and Resource Folder:

Step 1: Set Site Root

Click button 1 to set Site Root. Site Root is the corresponding local folder of your site root. For example, your web site is http://www.sothink.com/products/ and your web pages are stored to "D:\myweb\sothink.com\products" on your local computer. Then, http://www.sothink.com/ is the root of your web site, and the local folder corresponds to "D:\myweb\sothink.com", so the site Root is D:\myweb\sothink.com. When setting Site Root, you should keep the same directory structure on your computer with online web site.

Step 2: Set Resource Folder

Resource Folder can set directories in which the resource files used in the menu are saved. The resource files include JavaScript and SWF/XML files. After you set the Site Root, the option "JavaScript" and "SWF/XML" will be activated. You can click two folder buttons to set their directories.
Note: These two directories must be based on the directory of site root.

Click button 2 to choose a subfolder under directory of site root to save JavaScript files. For example:"\js".

Then, click button 3 to choose a subfolder under directory of site root to save SWF/XML files. For example:"\image".

Step 3: Upload JavaScript, SWF/XML files

Upload js, SWF/XML files to the corresponding directory on the web server.

First, in Flash Menu Builder, click the button "Publish" and choose "View/Copy Resource".

Second, you will see all the resource files used in your menu and you can choose a local folder to store these files.

Third, upload js, SWF/XML files to the directory on your web server as you defined in step 2.
