Topic: Full screen / Background color

Guys & Dolls

I have managed to upload SimpleViewer onto my website however I am having couple issues!!

http://www.jasdipsagu.com/index.php?opt … ;Itemid=75

1. Firstly, the 'Fullscreen' button doesn't work.
2. Also I am trying to change the color of the background the viewer is on to the color of the background of the website!

Thanks in advance
Jas

Re: Full screen / Background color

You are loading the swf directly into an iframe.  You need to embed the swf into an HTML page (onto which you can add parameters such as the background color) and load this into the iframe instead.

It looks like you are half way there in that you have created the HTML page (http://www.jasdipsagu.com/images/storie … index.html) so load this URL into the iframe instead of the swf file itself.

Re: Full screen / Background color

I understand what you mean, but am unsure how to access the HTML file as the Homepage is an 'Article layout'. I can't see anywhere where I can enter HTML.

Also what is the coding I need to put in the HTML file?

Thanks
Jas

Re: Full screen / Background color

The URL for the simple viewer is for example within the Article section of Asia =  /images/stories/asia/simpleviewer.swf

I want the simple viewer to be within the box where my menu is on top and the grey box on bottom.

Thanks
Jas

Re: Full screen / Background color

You will need to edit your joomla theme for you Article layout and replace the iframe with the standard SimpleViewer embed code. Make sure you update the code to point to the correct directory. In the embed code there is a pace for you to change the background color.

Re: Full screen / Background color

You currently have the code:

<iframe     id="blockrandom"
    name="iframe"
    src="http://www.jasdipsagu.com/images/stories/blackwhite/simpleviewer.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>

... and it needs to be:

<iframe     id="blockrandom"
    name="iframe"
    src="http://www.jasdipsagu.com/images/stories/blackwhite/index.html"
    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>

Edit the relevant page in a plain text editor. (Your index.html page already has the swf file embedded correctly and when the change has been made, the background color (as specified in the embed code) will be displayed as expected.)

Re: Full screen / Background color

Where do I find the coding you quoted on my website? I.e. what name? I m trying to find it!  tongue

Re: Full screen / Background color

I managed to change it to index.html under the black & white section. But is there anything else I am suppose to amend i.e. under index.html or other places?

Re: Full screen / Background color

I managed to do it!! Wahey!!

Thanks!!

Also I wanted to ask, let's say I purchase the pro version, will it be easy to use? I am a novice so I am amazed I have even manage to do this so want to know how much extra work on top is the pro version!

Thanks for your help!

Re: Full screen / Background color

Just checking your 'Black & White' gallery, I can now see that the background color is as you wanted it (to match the rest of the page) and the fullscreen option also works.  Just apply the same changes to your other galleries.

Re: Full screen / Background color

Using the Pro version is very straightforward.
Just swap the standard swf file with the Pro version.  Any Pro options you wish to apply to the gallery are done by setting attributes in the <simpleviewergallery> tag of the gallery's XML file.
A full list of the Pro configuration options can be found here:
