Topic: Gallery not displaying as I set it up

Hi,

The gallery I've created isn't displaying how I configured it in sv-Builder-Pro (I've pasted the XML content at the bottom of this post):

1) Why does a page of thumbs appear before the big image is displayed, and when the big image does display, the thumbs that should appear running along the bottom, don't appear. How can I fix this? Instead of the thumbs appearing along the bottom, a small grey box icon is displayed towards the top right, that links back to that page full of thumbs only. How can I configure the site so it displays like this one? - http://www.maracorsino.com/advertising/index.html

Also...

2) How do I change the style of left/right arrows?
The client wants these arrows - http://www.maracorsino.com/advertising/index.html

3) How do I align the big images all to the left?

Thanks smile

Rich

Re: Gallery not displaying as I set it up

1) Please see this FAQ: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … trouble_14

2) Set the option imageNavStyle="CURSOR" in your gallery's XML file
http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … ml#overlay

3) Set the option imageHAlign="LEFT" in your gallery's XML file
http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … #mainimage

Re: Gallery not displaying as I set it up

Hi and thank you for that response, it was very helpful.

I've sorted '2)' and '3)' I think now.

With '1)' - I have Flash installed, but I did check a box when configuring Simpleviewer that asked me whether I wanted to configure the gallery as Flash or not, and I selected for it not to be Flash.

Would this be the problem?

Thanks.

Re: Gallery not displaying as I set it up

Would this be the problem?

Yes. Deselecting the 'Use Flash' checkbox will force the gallery to be displayed using the Mobile Player (whether the user's browser has Adobe Flash Player installed and enabled or not).
The Mobile Player has a different layout to that of the Flash Player: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … l#mobile_1
With the 'Use Flash' checkbox selected, SimpleViewer will use the Flash Player to display the gallery if available, otherwise, it will fall back to using the Mobile Player.

Re: Gallery not displaying as I set it up

1) I've set the useFlash="False" to useFlash="True", should that of now removed both the grey thumbs icon from the image page and the thumbs page it's self? They are both still there?

2) Adding imageNavStyle="CURSOR" didn't add this cursor/arrow style -  http://www.maracorsino.com/advertising/index.html

Have you got any ideas of why it is not working?

Re: Gallery not displaying as I set it up

should that of now removed both the grey thumbs icon from the image page and the thumbs page it's self?

1) Yes. With 'Use Flash' selected, SimpleViewer will use the Flash Player to display the gallery (if available in the user's browser) and both the thumbnail grid and icon will not be present in the layout.
You can check that Adobe Flash Player is installed and enabled in your browser by visiting this page: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html

2) If you do not have Flash installed and enabled (as it would appear by your description of what you are seeing), then the cursor/arrow style will not be visible (as this is a Flash option only which is not available to the Mobile Player).

Please post the URL to your gallery so that I can take a look and help further.

Re: Gallery not displaying as I set it up

Thanks Steven,

Yes I will post the link as soon as the site goes live. Unfortunately I can't even put it on a dev. domain at the moment.

Well at least it all seems to be down to the Flash not working. Google Chrome should have Flash already, so it's odd that it isn't working. But I'm sure it's just something silly.

Thanks again for your help, and I will post again when I upload it all the the server.
