Cyclinglinks - what am I doing wrong!?

In Twine1 - SugarCube2

I tried a cyclinglink test using 2 passages. One, called 'cl' containing -
<<cyclinglink "$test" "yes" "no" "maybe">>


<<print $test>> here
<<set "$test" is "maybe">>

And the other 'well?' containing -
<<if "$test" is "yes">>Yes<<elseif "$test" is "no">>No<<elseif "$test" is "maybe">>Maybe<<else>>:(<<endif>>
What have I done wrong here?


  • Sorry, I should have mentioned; the script passage* should be OK as I ripped it from a source that TME had edited. For some reason I can't find that page now though.

    It's titled 'cyclinglink' and tagged 'script'.

    Inside is this -
    macros.cyclinglink={handler:function(a,b,c){var rl="cyclingLink";
    function toggleText(w){w.classList.remove("cyclingLinkInit");
    w.classList.toggle(rl+"Enabled");w.classList.toggle(rl+"Disabled");"none")?"inline":"none")}switch(c[c.length-1]){case"end":var end=true;
    c.pop();break;case"out":var out=true;c.pop();break}var v="";if(c.length&&c[0][0]=="$"){v=c[0].slice(1);
    c.shift()}var h=state.history[0].variables;if(out&&h[v]===""){return
    }var l=Wikifier.createInternalLink(a,null);l.className="internalLink cyclingLink";
    l.setAttribute("data-cycle",0);for(var i=0;i<c.length;i++){var on=(i==Math.max(c.indexOf(h[v]),0));
    var d=insertElement(null,"span",null,"cyclingLinkInit cyclingLink"+((on)?"En":"Dis")+"abled");
    }else{l.appendChild(d)}}l.onclick=function(){var t=this.childNodes;
    var u=this.getAttribute("data-cycle")-0;var m=t.length;toggleText(t[u]);
    u=(u+1);if(!(out&&u==m)){u%=m;if(v){h[v]=c[u]}}else{h[v]=""}if((end||out)&&u==m-(end?1:0)){if(end){var n=this.removeChild(t[u]);

    Which I don't expect you to go through but somebody else might want it. :)
  • I also should have mentioned the effect I'm getting come to think of it. Which with this test I just get the :( but elsewhere I get that the first time and then if I click back a page and try again, each time I get the result corresponding to the previous choice.
  • I don't know where you got that, however, that is not SugarCube compatible.

    You need to get the version of <<cyclinglink>> from SugarCube v2's website.
  • Ah, I found it. This is where I got it originally -
    Thanks TME, I'll see if I can find it there.
  • I couldn't find that but I'm sure it's there so I'll click this as answered. I've found another way that I'm happy with so no problem anyway. Ta!

    It's on SugarCube v2's website, as I said. Specifically, under the Downloads > Add-ons section, listed as <<cyclinglink>> macro.
  • Aaah haaah, thanks for that! :)
