I am trying to have a preview image on a tour. Ideally i'd like it to load only online when using the start_preview='true' shortcode. (using the ggpkg plugin for wordpress)

Not sure if you would call that a splash screen really. I thought I found a thread that said to edit the skin and add a image, make the action "splash..." but I can not find that as an action....

Did you ever figure this out?

Hi Guys,
What may be a solution is adding a flat image as an input.
You can add a start button graphic either in the skin or in the image using an image editor.
Then use Direct Node Access.

Example, a 5 node tour, add the flat image as node 6.
You can use a poly hotspot to open node 1.

You give out the URL: ...index.html#node6
If you want people to see the start screen, and leave off the #node6 part if you want to go straight into the tour.
Regards,
Hopki
