Topic: How to embed Simpleviewer into Joomla? Newbie!

Hey

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

I am currently using AutoViewer on my website which has been built using Joomla. This was created for me by designers. However I want to embed the Classic SimpleViewer Gallery (http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/examples/classic/ ) into my website instead of the AutoViewer, as this will enhance ease of use within the website! I know how to create new pages which would use AutoViewer as 'wrappers'.

I have tried to follow instructions on the website but to be honest I don't have a clue where to start!!

My website is www.jasdipsagu.com.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks
Jas

Replace the following code with the SimpleViewer embed code making sure you point to the right directory.

<iframe     id="blockrandom"
    name="iframe"
    src="http://www.jasdipsagu.com/images/stories/portraits/autoviewer.swf"
    width="100%"
    height="500"
    scrolling="auto"
    align="top"
    frameborder="0"
    class="wrapper"> 
    This option will not work correctly. Unfortunately, your browser does not support inline frames.</iframe>

Thanks for the quick.

I see this page when I go to view source in I.E/FireFox when vieiwng the pictures but how do I access this file in Joomla as coding is already done for the pictures in the 'Article' section.

I.e I can't find the HTML file for each gallery, the furthest I can go is the Portraits menu, http://www.jasdipsagu.com/index.php?opt … Itemid=115 (in terms of HTML)

Thanks

I am totally confused as Joomla doesn't allow me to edit HTML, only if I am editting 'Articles' but not picture sections..so not sure how I am suppose to access this?

I have managed to get Simpleviwer on this page, but then I am unsure how to get the images to come up as it's already in the 'images' folder.

You need to use one of these methods to create the gallery.xml and image files.

I need someone to show me a dummy step-by-step as this is all foreign language to me! :S

I am even trying to use the 'example' one that comes with the simpleviewer donwload but that doesn't seem to work either.

Thanks

Choose one of the methods for generating a gallery, generate it and then upload and embed it just as you did the example.
