Current Version Download:
SLIKS Version 2.4
This version inlcudes the SLIKSMaker
program for making datasets. has Lookup, removeable choices, a
optimization algorithm, paragraph like descriptions etc. but it only
runs perfectly in full Microsoft Internet Explorer.
To use it, just unzip it, copy the files to a new folder (this confirms
that you actually extracted them fully), open the SLIKS.js file in
Notepad (it's on all windows systems) and fill in your data according
to the directions.
Or just use SLIKSMaker
to build a new dataset.
Then click on SLIKS.html to see your key.
When you can do that you might want to do some advanced options such as:
that SLIKS versions 2.0 on no longer support multistate
"characters". They are based on yes/no character states.
multiple keys in the same folder just by changing their file names and
the reference to them in the main html file.
the "Lookup" somewhere else such as your own glossary or another
the links in the data set somewhere else.
images anywhere in the key - they don't even need to be on your site.
nifty backgrounds or special effects etc.
This makes it much easier to integrate data sets and to manage multiple
keys. It also makes much more powerful and strightforward
character optimization algorithms useable.
Follow the directions
and feel free to email
me if you have questions.
NEW SLIKSMaker Version 2

Note: If you are running Symantec Anti-Virus Software, you will have to
specifically allow SLIKS to run locally on your machine.
