"Before" and "after" versions of the same tour

Post by MClementson » Tue Jan 23, 2018 2:38 am

What's the best way to go about implementing the following scenario?

I have a tour of 18 nodes - they're all linked and work beautifully.
I now want to create the exact same tour again - so all linked in the exact same way - but with a different image (essentially the "after" image). I've got both tours created and they work great independently.

How do I set the skin up with a before/after button so that I can switch between the two tours?

Thanks.

Hi,

Check out this post viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12273&p=50688&hilit ... day#p50688 and download Hopki's skin. It should do exactly what you want.

Here's a working version of Hopki's skin https://rebrand.ly/timesoftheday

cheers,

Tony

@ hiv360
Swop the player from a Pano2VR 5.2.3 project which has the fix for the Apple Safari bug.
This does not display on my Mac Book, other browsers are ok.
Regards,
Hopki

Thanks for the links everyone. I'll try and tackle this this afternoon, unfortunately I can't just plug an entire skin in as we've already done a fair amount with our client on the skin already. So I'll be reverse engineering the suggestions.

OK. Next complication.

I've implemented Hopki's solution, I have User Data added for the before/after nodes and a button that toggles between the before/after condition - that works great.

I also have a tour map overlaid so that users can jump to any point in the tour - this currently jumps to the 'after' nodes regardless of the toggle state. What's the best way to handle this? Swop out another set of buttons on the map like I do with the before/after button? Have a variable that is used to determine which node to select?

Unfortunately, I can't share what I have so far as it's currently confidential.

Hi,
What you could do is use tags.
The map node markers can then hide and show depending on the showing node.
As you switch between the before/after condition the map pins should just swopped with the tags.

Hopki
