Topic: SV2, Multiple Slideshows & Wordpress

Hi gang.

I have the current WP plugin and the lastest version of SV Pro.  However, I think I am headed for trouble because I need 3 different slideshows on my site and I don't want to use the Media Library.  Too cumbersome.

How do I get SV to work on 3 separate posts/pages?  As you know, WP messes with code when you paste it into HTML view so it may not work that way.

Ideas?

Thanks.

Re: SV2, Multiple Slideshows & Wordpress

If you do not want to use the Media Library, then perhaps you would be better trying the following:
(1) Create you galleries individually beforehand using svBuilder-Pro and save each one in a separate folder

(2) Upload your gallery folders to your web host using an FTP program such as Filezilla
(3) Embed each gallery in a post using an <iframe> with the 'src' attribute of the <iframe> pointing to the HTML index page of the gallery, eg:

<iframe src="http://www.example.com/gallery1/index.html" width="800" height="600" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

(Be sure to set the post's input method to 'HTML' rather than 'Visual'.)
See the 2nd embedding method ('Using an iFrame') here for details: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … l#external
Using this method, you can embed multiple galleries in a single post if necessary.

Thanks, Steven.  I only need one gallery (slideshow) per post, but I understand what you're saying.  Not thrilled about losing functionality with the <iframe>, but it may be better than the clumsy alternative of dealing with the Media Library.

I had also been concerned about <iframe>'s potentially negative SEO impact.  Any thoughts there?  Does the fact that it's pulling a file from within the same domain skirt the issue for SEO?

Thanks!

If you do not want to use an <iframe>, then you could embed a gallery directly into the post's page by using the baseURL method described here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … l#external
