Topic: Embedding in Blogger, images don't show up

Hi, I am having trouble embedding SV-pro2 in blogger and was wondering if someone could help me out.

Basically, I was able to embed the simple viewer, but the images don't show up and come up as "X" instead. The problem seems to be that blogger is looking for the images in some non-existent blogger directory, rather than where I have them.

The entire SV gallery folder, including the images, is at my own web space. I was able to launch simple viewer embedded in"index.html" page that was hosted there, so I know that it should work.

I searched google and these forums, but most answers seem to be with people using flickr to host their images..

This is what I am pasting into the "compose html" window in blogger:

<object height="700" width="800"><param name="Movie" value="http://mysite.com/web/simpleviewer.swf">
<param name="Flashvars" value="xmlDataPath=http://mysite.com/web/gallery.xml">"></param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<param name="bgcolor" value="222222">

<embed src="http://mysite.com/web/simpleviewer.swf" flashvars="xmlDataPath=http://mysite.com/web/gallery.xml"
 type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="700" height="880"
 bgcolor="222222"></embed></object>

Any insights and suggestions as to what I am doing wrong are greatly appreciated!

xmlDataPath is a SimpleViewer 1.x option you need to use galleryURL instead with SimplevViewer 2.

Re: Embedding in Blogger, images don't show up

Thank you for the reply! I have to say I am very new to .html, so forgive me if I come off a bit slow.

I was following the "iphotowalker" simple viewer 2 tutorial, which I found through google and linked off these boards too. There it said that galleryURL, as well as the general html formatting that you have in Simple Viewer Embedding Guide, was "Old code, not support Internet Explorer." The updated coding style apparently has more browser support.

I tried both methods, and both of them give the same result, at least on firefox - the viewer loads, but images come out as "X".

Updated code:

<object height="700" width="800">

<param name="movie" value="http://mysite.com/web/simpleviewer.swf?galleryURL=http://mysite.com/web/gallery.xml">
</param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true">
</param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always">
</param>
<param name="bgcolor" value="222222"> </param>
<embed src="http://mysite.com/web/simpleviewer.swf?galleryURL=http://mysite.com/web/gallery.xml"
 type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="700" height="880" bgcolor="222222"></embed></object>

Looking at the SV pro config options, html section, it seems I may need to set "baseURL". Except that I am not sure about its syntax/placement  in the above code. I ll try a few things, but any further tips and suggestions are also very welcome!

If you are using galleryURL you may also have change the paths to your images in your gallery.xml

baseURL will allow you to point to a directory that contains your image folders and gallery.xml, you would use it in place of galleryURL.

value="http://mysite.com/web/simpleviewer.swf?baseURL=http://mysite.com/web/"
