Chris' search plugin still takes > 10 seconds to go through 300 screens. Used to be < 1 second.

@Mutzy. iOS / Android / both? Can't be a tough fix, something funky going on there. Happy to get a look, lemme know which platform. I'll see whats happening.

Buzz Carousel by Kittsy is still trying to import the previously included JSON.h core files, which are no longer included. What would be the easiest way to have this work with BT 4? I tried adding an old version of the core JSON folder to the project, but didn't do the trick.

Just a bump on what @AngryNinja said wrote. I also have several Kittsy plugins and would love to see them working seamlessly in the latest version. This would really help me get on track with betting looking apps.

Copy this into Buzz_carousel.m

It's a quick fix.

https://gist.github.com/Kittsy/f4a51b94cad63445d2c0dc827dc69259

It's embarrassing to look back and see how badly written this code is.

Also incredible this plugin is from 2012 and other than a few changes to the code for the new core it works.

The Carousel is probably my favorite plugin. So versatile and really makes an app pop.

well hopefully that should work.

Buzztouch is will soon be taking ownership of the plugin soon.

I have a version of this on my NAS somewhere with all kinds of features.

Rotation different carousel for landscape and portrait or iPad.
URL Images
Better animations leading to next screens.
All the share stuff that the mosaic has
Even an audio player https://youtu.be/3pUGRH4YEFY

KOZMO here is the mosaic plugin

I haven't tested all of the features but it works with gallery and used as a menu

just replace the whole plugin with this

change the BT-appDelegate.h to your own app delegate name

Help!

I am working on an Android project - had no problems compiling before. Problem I have is that I download the project and it says build successful but when I open the app on the device it says that The Android class file for this screen (BT_menu item) was not compiled on the project.

Am I missing something obvious?

Update:

Downloaded again and it loads now but no home button at the top and the background isn't the right colour.

I think Buzztouch isn't compiling projects correctly - anyone have any ideas?

I am having the same issue (BT_menuitem) was not compiled. Downloaded again, and same issue - file not included in download.

Does anyone have a date as to when the android download compilation might get fixed?

Another question: I developed my app 2013/2014...used plugins: menu w/image, html docs, location map, menu buttons, custom url, and some others. The only plugin of that list, that shows for me to click on when I package and download from BT is menu w/image. What do I do about the others?

Please help!

XIB Button Menu is also JSON.h dependent for iOS. Hopefully Chris can fix this, as it's a great plugin.

remove #json.h

then it should error in the class that looks like the line below


replace

SBJsonParser *parser = [SBJsonParser new];
id jsonData = [parser objectWithString:theData];

with


NSError *jsonError = nil;
NSData *jsonDataFromString = [theData dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
NSDictionary *jsonData = [NSJSONSerialization JSONObjectWithData:jsonDataFromString options:0 error:&jsonError];

@ChrisFromStafford - I have not abandoned the community. I've been working hard on the plugins this month and am continuing to do so. It's not always a quick process, though. If you don't hear from me for a few weeks, it likely just means I'm quietly working away trying to be as productive as possible :)

@AngryNinja - XIB Button Menu is on my list to get to, but it's down the list a bit. I have a method to the madness, which is based on how often plugins have been purchased and how often they have been included in apps that are accessed on a daily basis.

@ChrisFromStafford - what is the issue with Location Map? Is it iOS or Android that you're having a problem with? Can you provide some details and perhaps even a link to your project? When I worked on the Location Map for Android several months ago, I had it working great on my end.

Hi

Chris1

It just seemed that we are abandoned so nice to see you out there still

Android is where I am having issues - the menu bar doesn't appear at the top - plugins don't alway download with the project - location map just crashes on android

AlanMac more or less sums up the problems with Android in this thread:

Is there visibility & status of the buggs that have been logged for the community? It would be helpful to track status and also to not spend time writing up an issue to find it has already been logged.

The fault you are reporting is common to plugins that were developed a while ago - all plugins needed to be updated from Jan 2017 to be compatible with the latest version of Buzztouch. You need @Chris1 who supports the plugin to update it to be BT4 compatible.

You can report the fault here https://www.buzztouch.com/forum/bugreport.php

Good luck, Alan

Having problem with third party plugins in my BT 4.0.3 project at the moment -

All the 'BT_Screens' work...

But although I've dragged the bt_plugins from the download into my Xcode project, keeps showing:

'Project Error... Make sure the plugin is added to the bt_plugins folder in your Xcode project'

Any ideas?

Thanks

ps my App Project Download page reads Buzztouch Core v4.0.2, so don't know if that has something to do with it...

Make sure the target for each file is set properly. If you click on the plugin file and look in the right label on Xcode, you should see a checkbox with your project’s name next to it. Be sure it is checked.
