Topic: White X / No Images

Hello All

I have been using Simple Viewer for a number of years. One of the first site I used it on however has stopped working.

A little background, I first created the gallery at http://www.rhbandersonfuneralhomes.com/ … index.html using Lightroom. My client was impressed with the system and instead of using is it as a short term fix, we left it as the main gallery.

A number of months ago the gallery stopped working altogether. After diagnosing the site and preforming an upgrade to V2.03 we finally were able to get the interface to comeback. However no we have no images instead just white X's. I have looked over the code till I go bug-eyed trying to figure out what the issue might be. The first of course being the file paths, but everything is correct.

Do anyone have any Ideas on what the issue might be. I would hate to have to stop using simple viewer.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. If you have seen a post somewhere else in the forum regarding this issue, please let me know. I might have missed it when I was searching.

When you try to go to the fist image and thumb you get a 404 not found error.

The white X means either that the image is not in the location you are telling the gallery it is in the gallery.xml. This could be caused by several issues, such as not uploading the image folder or a pathing issue.
