1. Which version and build of svManager are you running? A new version was released very recently so you could be on 1.3 or 1.4. The version number and build is on the admin screen.
I'm using svManager version 1.3.4, build 090513
2. Could you please describe the folder structure of the imported galleries and the location of the svManager folder. Where are the 32 images?
I have a folder called 'test'
inside of it is the following folders:
images (contains nav buttons, etc. NO SV stuff)
thumbs (48 Existing thumbs for all 3 galleries)
portfolio-3 (index.html, gallery.xml, viewer.swf, swfobject.js)
large (48 Existing large images for all 3 galleries)
additionally there are html docs in this test folder for the rest of the site.
There are 3 galleries with 16 images apiece. So this is where 32 extra images comes from -- for some reason it's uploading all the images in the 'large' folder: 48 - 16 = 32.
I designed the site so that all of the large images go in one folder and all of the thumbs go in another. This makes it easy transferring images from one gallery to another -- just use xml to re-route them.
3. I take it that you are seeing this problem when you upload to one of the imported galleries? What happens when you create a new gallery and upload to that?
Correct -- this happens when I upload to an imported gallery but no problem with a new gallery. I want to convert a photographer's site that has 8 simpleviewer galleries and uses the same shared folder structure as above -- I'd rather not rebuild them all.
4. It might help to see an extract from the xml file for one of your galleries.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<simpleviewergallery maxImageWidth="500" maxImageHeight="500" textColor="0x333333" frameColor="0xA42A27" frameWidth="0" stagePadding="100" navPadding="100" thumbnailColumns="4" thumbnailRows="4" navPosition="left" vAlign="top" hAlign="center" title="Portfolio 1" enableRightClickOpen="false" backgroundImagePath="" imagePath="../large/" thumbPath="../thumbs/">
