changing the filenames that are automatically generated

Post by JVaron » Tue Aug 07, 2018 4:24 pm

When Pano2VR generates all the output files and code, it automatically names all the files. Any mouse-over graphic gets a filename with "__o.png" or "__o.svg" on the end. The double-underscore in the filename has never been an issue until recently.

We have lots of clients that host their tours on a CMS that has problems with the double-underscore. Upon uploading their tours, the CMS automatically changes all the double-underscores to single-underscores, which essentially breaks all the mouse-over effects in the virtual tour. So then we have to manually make changes to the files on the server to make everything work.

We're trying to come up with a workable solution that is a bit less tedious, so my question is .... Is there any way for me to change how Pano2VR names these mouse-over files? Any change would obviously have to affect the filenames themselves, as well as their links in the skin.js file.

Any thoughts would help.

Hi,
Thanks for the heads up on this, we may have a solution for this in the next beta release.
But for now there is no smart way, you can open the skin.js file and do a find and replace __o => _o but then you still have to rename all the images.
Regards,
Hopki
