Topic: I don't see the gallery on my website

I'm sorry, I tried everything I could think of. I don't know web design and have minimal html experience. I followed all the steps and copied code into my web page but it won't come up. I have the simpleviewer folder saved on my desktop. I tried all the step by step directions i could find. can you possibly help me?

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

please post the URL of the page that is having the issue.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

This is one page I've tried copying the code to. http://theartofhorror.com/illustrations.html

I deleted some/all of the code that's already there to make room for the new code but no luck.

Is it possible for us to write through e-mail? That way i could send files and code without going back and forth on the forum.

Thanks.

Our product support is done through these forums. Are the files are only on your local PC? Could you put up a test page such as http://theartofhorror.com/testillustrations.html?

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

I'm not sure how to do that. I can paste code over the page that is already there though. and when i paste this code over what is there. literally nothing shows up. and yes the files are located on my computer.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

From what you posted here everything looks right. What browser are you trying to preview it in?

The easiest way to create a test page is to copy all of the files needed for that one page into a folder called test and upload that to your server.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

My browser is Firefox. I figured out how to upload a test page.

Here is the address: http://theartofhorror.com/test.html

The only code I entered is what is posted above. As you can see, nothing displays, but if you look at the page source you will see all the code is there..

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

Ok, now I understand the problem the xml code does not belong in the HTML. It should be in a separate file called gallery.xml. Also it doesn't look like the svcore folder was uploaded to the gallery.

The xml Code:

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

Ok, I created a new directory called 'svcore' and uploaded every file that was inside that folder. I also deleted the .xml text from the test page and only kept the html. Hmm...now what?

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

The XML code should be in a separate file called gallery.xml and this should be uploaded in the same directory as test.html.
It looks like you have taken the svcore files out of their subdirectories (eg svcore/simpleviewer.js exists on your server but the path should be svcore/js/simpleviewer.js).
Upload the entire svcore folder from the SimpleViewer download package (keeping all subfolders intact) into the same directory as test.html.
You also have some javascript after the closing </html> tag in test.html.  This should go immediately before </html>.

You should now have the following in one directory:
test.html (file)
gallery.xml (file)
svcore (folder)
thumbs (folder)
images(folder)

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

Are you generating your gallery with svBuilder-Pro? If so, you just need to upload the entire generated gallery folder to your website. Do not move, delete or edit any of the generated files.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

I don't seem to be able to upload entire folders, only files. I created new directories within the simpleviewer directory, which look like folders, and uploaded all the files exactly as they appear inside my desktop folder. the test page only shows up as existing when outside of a directory, hence why i tried creating a test2.html file there. i also tried playing with the 'permissions' option, making certain directories 'web visible' which i thought might change something but it didn't. not sure what that does. perhaps this screenshot will help.

Felix- I generated the folder with svBuilder.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

Rather than use a web interface within Firefox to upload your files and folders, you might find it easier to manage your webspace with an FTP client program such as Filezilla which would allow you to drag and drop entire folders.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

I was able to upload the entire folder through FTP, but still in the same place i was before  sad

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

What is the URL to the folder you uploaded?

Mike Richards
SimpleViewer Support Team.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

do you mean C:/Documents and Settings/Owner/Desktop/SimpleViewer/index.html ?

not sure how to get the url of the actual folder uploaded to my website control panel..

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

When you uploaded the folder with the FTP client what directory did you put it in?

Mike Richards
SimpleViewer Support Team.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

the folder is in its own directory, but also seems to be under the main html directory, where everything is stored.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

You may have a few stray files in your root directory but you do seem to have a fully-functional self-contained gallery within your 'SimpleViewer' folder, the URL for the gallery is: http://theartofhorror.com/SimpleViewer/index.html

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

Thank you for that link!!!

I did not know that was the direct link. i pointed the a href= whatever to that link and it looks good! I was lost in the xml code and index code i didn't realize that was the only link i needed. Thank you very much for your patience and help.

One more question, on my screen I cannot scroll down to see the entire page. I have to switch to full screen so that I can see everything, for example the image name, number, and arrows. Is this only on my screen? It's probably due to go the godaddy banner at the top. Are you able to see the entire page without switching to full screen?

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

Try adding the following to the head of your doc.

<style type="text/css">    
    html {
        overflow: auto;
    }
</style>

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

which specific doc would i add that to?

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

Sorry your html page.

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

I couldn't get that code to work, BUT i went back into simpleviewer and just changed the height in 'customize' to 99% instead of 100% and it looks fine now. Everything worked out! I wish I could link back to my website on the simpleviewer page but it's all good for now. Thanks very much.  smile

Re: I don't see the gallery on my website

You can just add the link or menu or whatever to the gallery page and position it with css.
