Topic: Solution for viewing Flickr gallery does not work

I've upgraded to SimpleViewer Pro 2.1.3, created a Flickr gallery and ran into the "Previewing a Flickr gallery locally does not work." I've clicked the "Check here for the solution", and it doesn't work. In fact, I don't even get the described text in the "solution". I'm running Adobe Flash Player X.

I've also embeded the code into my site and that isn't working either. Help!

Re: Solution for viewing Flickr gallery does not work

Please post the URL to your gallery so that we can take a look.
In the meantime, please see this FAQ for details: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … #trouble_8

Re: Solution for viewing Flickr gallery does not work

Thanks, but I already checked out that FAQ and it didn't help. I've given up on utilizing the Flickr feature since it too much of a nightmare to deal with. I've moved on to creating my gallery manually, which I previously had done with v1.9. Alas, running into more issues. I now get "Gallery XML not found", however, the xml file is there. Starting to question why am I wasting hours of my life on this. Why is this not working?!!? Did I mention that since I am no longer building the gallery through Flickr, it is still trying to connect to Flickr and I'm still getting the original flash error.

Re: Solution for viewing Flickr gallery does not work

SimpleViewer is looking for your gallery's XML file to be named 'gallery.xml' and for it to be located in the same directory as the page into which SimpleViewer is embedded.
However, going directly to http://www.foortography.com/gallery.xml in a browser gives an error 404 (file not found).
Either upload your 'gallery.xml' file to the root directory of your web server or define the path to your gallery's XML file using the galleryURL option: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … .html#html
eg:

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var flashvars={};
flashvars.galleryURL="sample_folder_name/gallery_xml_name.xml";
simpleviewer.ready(function () {
simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "850px", "100%", "181818", true, flashvars);
});
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

Re: Solution for viewing Flickr gallery does not work

Used your solution, and still don't see the gallery. what is going on here? why is this so difficult? btw, i'm using Dreamweaver CS3. ugh!

Re: Solution for viewing Flickr gallery does not work

Your 'gallery.xml' file does not exist in the correct location.
http://www.foortography.com/gallery.xml still gives an error 404.
Make sure your gallery's XML file is named 'gallery.xml' and that you have uploaded it to the root directory of your web server.
