Almost what I want but I need some tweaks.
The page were I have my thumbnails will be a referring page, mythumbnails.jsp . I replaced the standard embedding code with that you gave me and got index.html?#index to work. The only change I had to make was on the line that launches the viewer, I changed first false param to true. false was overriding the size of my viewer.
simpleviewer.load('sv-container', '100%', '100%', '222222', false, flashvars, params, attributes);
But here's what I need/want
(1) To also pass replacement value for back link -- I have already generate a static value for the back link which I need to override
(2) Captions on or off (even if photo has caption)
(3) Show file name
(4) more generally pass any supported parameter name/value in the query params to index.html, e.g. index.html?svParam1=svParam1Value&svParam2=svParam2Value#firstIndex. Is this possible?
(5) To be able to use svBuilder to generate the alternate sv embed code so that the special voodoo to put in index.html is not wiped out each time I regenerate gallery
