Topic: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

I have a SimpleViewer Pro "Flash" gallery.  I have updated to SimpleViewer Pro v2.  I opened the "original" gallery in svBuilder. It initially came in with a dark gray background vs the original white background. I checked the box for background color for white. and I un-checked the box for "Use Flash" so I could publish a non-Flash version of this gallery.

I then Published the updated gallery and copied the embed code.  I then edited my html file, commenting out the original code for the Flash galley and inserting the new embed code for the non-Flash gallery.

I then uploaded the new html file and the new svcore folder.

The gallery is NOT showing as it does, or should, from svBuilder.

I have taken screen shots to show the problem:
1. the website with the "original" SimpleViewer Pro Flash gallery:
http://studiokaufman.com/site/propertyL … iginal.jpg

2. the updated gallery as seen in svBuilder:
http://studiokaufman.com/site/propertyL … uilder.jpg

3. the Published gallery as it now appears in the website:
http://studiokaufman.com/site/propertyL … ersion.jpg

The URL for this site is:
http://studiokaufman.com/site/propertyL … index.html

Only the Gallery (in the menu bar) has been updated to SV v2 non-Flash. The Slideshow is the original SV-Pro v1 Flash version.

Can you help, advise me the correct steps to properly update the original SV-Pro Flash slideshows and galleries to SV-Pro v2. non-Flash?

Thank you,

Dan Kaufman

Regarding the layout of Flash and Mobile galleries, please see this FAQ: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … l#mobile_1
svBuilder-Pro is currently unable to preview the Mobile version of a gallery.

Regarding Upgrading Existing Galleries to Version 2.1.3, please see here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … grade.html

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

Thank you...but I'm confused further then.  Are you saying that what I see as the layout (etc.) in svBuilder will not be the same as what I see in the website when selecting "non-Flash" ?

How do I use svBuilder then when designing a non-Flash gallery?


Thank you,

That is correct.
There are very few options for a non-Flash Gallery so configuring one should be relatively easy, even without a live preview.
The available options for the Mobile Player can be found here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … tml#mobile

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

Okay...I need to work around this limitation (of limited layout options)  for the "non-Flash Mobile" version.

I will need to have the Flash version show normally when viewed in a regular browser (on a computer) and then with "conditional code" show the "non-Flash Mobile" version when viewed on a mobile device such as an iPad.

Do you know of any examples of this procedure?


Thank you,

I will need to have the Flash version show normally when viewed in a regular browser (on a computer) and then with "conditional code" show the "non-Flash Mobile" version when viewed on a mobile device such as an iPad.

That is exactly what happens by default. No additional code required.

"SimpleViewer now includes SimpleViewer Mobile, a HTML5 version of SimpleViewer specifically designed for mobile devices that do not support Flash. This includes iPhones, iPads and Android devices. SimpleViewer Mobile provides a minimal interface to better present images on a small screen.

The mobile version of the gallery is automatically created and is displayed if the user's device does not have the Flash plugin enabled. To see this in action, view any SimpleViewer demo using a mobile device."

Thank you Felix,

It was the initial difference in the whole look-and-feel of the Gallery due to the limitations of the Mobile format that threw me.


Best,

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

The 'use flash' check box is a little confusing I agree.

I've updated the description of what this option does here:

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

2 more questions if you don't mind...

1. In the Mobile version, at the gallery image bottom, is an overlay "opacity" bar and the image number count.  How can this be eliminated? I have deselected "Mobile Show Caption" but the bar and image count still shows.

2. What files are to be uploaded to the server after making changes to the configuration?  After I Publish I get the embed code but as sparse as this code is I don't see any change per se. 


Thank you,

Dan Kaufman

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

Deselecting 'Mobile Show Caption' should be enough to remove the overlay with the caption and image number.
You can check that this option has been set correctly by opening the gallery's XML file in a plain text editor and looking for (or adding) the entry mobileShowCaption="FALSE".

The files you need to upload after making changes to the configuration are:
index.html (if changing gallery dimensions, background color, 'Use Flash' option or 'Use Color Correction' option)
gallery.xml (if changing anything else)
There is no need to re-upload the 'svcore' folder as this does not change.
If adding images to your gallery, then you will also need to upload the new images in the 'images' and 'thumbs' folders.

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

Thank you Steven...

unfortunately adding  mobileShowCaption="false" to the gallery.xml file is not changing anything.

the gallery.xml file can be seen at
http://studiokaufman.com/site/propertyL … allery.xml

the site is located at
http://studiokaufman.com/site/propertyL … index.html

ONLY the Gallery as listed in the menu bar has been upgraded to SV-Pro v2

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

The gallery listed in the menu bar does not have the overlay with the image number.
Try clearing your browser's cache before reloading the gallery to see any changes made.

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

Thank you. 

Yes, clearing the browser cache works. However on the opening "thumbnail page" of the gallery when viewed on the iPad, the caption "page 1 of 1" is now showing.  Perhaps it was showing before as i changed the background color from white (FFFFFF) to a medium gray (A9A9A9).

I have looked through all the options in svBuilder and I believe I have checked, unchecked , or indicated None for Captions and/or page numbers.

I have looked over the gallery.xml file and I do not see any value that would cause this "page 1 of 1" to display.  Can you tell me what I should look for, or add,  in gallery.xml to eliminate this?

Thank you,

Dan Kaufman

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

The 'page 1 of 1' relates to the number of thumbnail pages in the gallery.
In a gallery which resizes dynamically with the size of the user's browser window, the number of thumbnails which are able to be displayed may change and the 'page x of y' text will change accordingly.
Try temporarily disabling Adobe Flash Player and viewing this sample gallery whilst resizing the browser window.
There is currently no pre-configured option that will switch this text on or off.
You could, however, post this as a feature request in this thread so that it is not overlooked.

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

Thank you Steve,

The "page 1 of 1" caption only appears in the Mobile version.  It does not appear in the regular Flash version.

The only "workaround" that I can see is to change the page background color back to white.  It was white before and I didn't see it.  I didn't see it until I changed the background color to gray, it now appears as white text on the gray background.

Is it possible to change the text color to the same gray value as the background? A9A9A9 text on a A9A9A9 backgound?

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

The "page 1 of 1" caption only appears in the Mobile version.  It does not appear in the regular Flash version.

That is correct, hence my suggestion to temporarily disable Adobe Flash Player in order to view the sample gallery using the Mobile Player.
As far as I am aware, it is not possible to change the color of the 'page x of y' text.

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

Please excuse my ignorance...but how do I disable the Adobe Flash Player? My problem is in the Mobile version on my iPad which does not have an Adobe Flash Player. The "page 1 of 1" text only appears on the iPad, not on my Mac.

Dan

Re: Published "non-Flash" Gallery not same as in svBuilder

Don't worry. It's actually not important. I was suggesting you view a Mobile gallery in a computer's browser so that you could resize the window and see the 'page x of y' text change as the window size (and number of thumbnails being displayed) changes.
I only mentioned disabling Adobe Flash Player to force the sample gallery to use the Mobile Player (so that the 'page x of y' text would be displayed in the first place).
To answer your question, the method to disable plugins differs from browser to browser but can usually be found somewhere in the 'Tools' section.
