Topic: Some thumbs are not loaded sometimes

Some thumbs are not loaded sometimes when first time opening the gallery.
Instead of the thumb a square is displayed.
When loading a second time all thumbs are shown correctly.

This happens locally on my PC as well on the server.

Options are as follows:

useFixedLayout="FALSE"
doThumbPopOut="FALSE"
showOverlay="NEVER"
showImageNav="NEVER"
thumbFrameWidth="1"
thumbHoverFrameWidth="4"
imageTransitionType="CROSS_FADE"
imageTransitionTime=".5"
enableMouseWheel="TRUE"
maxImageWidth="800"
maxImageHeight="800"
textColor="0xFFFFFF"
frameColor="#FFFFFF"
frameWidth="3"
galeryStyle="MODERN"
stagePadding="5"
thumbColumns="8"
thumbRows="5"
thumbFrameColor="#006400"
changeCaptionOnHover="TRUE"
showOpenButton="TRUE"
showDownloadButton="TRUE"
navPosition="left"
title="Bad Hersfelder Festspiele 27. - 31. Juli 2011"
titlePosition="LEFT"
titleFontName="Tahoma, Arial,_sans"
titleFontSize="20"
titleTextAlignment="CENTER"
captionPosition="TOP"
captionFontName="Tahoma, Arial,_sans"
captionFontSize="14"
captionTextAlignment="CENTER"
captionWidth="150"
captionHeight="30"
showImageNumber="FALSE"
enableRighClickOpen="TRUE"
showBackButton="TRUE"
backButtonText="Zurück"
backgroundImagePath=""
backButtonFontColor="#000000"
backButtonFontSize="12"
backButtonFontName="Tahoma, Arial,_sans"
backButtonBackColor="#6DEB3F"
backButtonX="150"
backButtonY="50"
imagePath="../"
thumbPath="thumbs"

To call the pictures I use:

<filename>Schwestern11_001.jpg</filename>
<caption>Auf dem Weg zur Ilkahöhe</caption>
</image>

instead of:

  <image imageURL="../Schwestern11_001.jpg"
    thumbURL="thumbs/Schwestern11_001.jpg"
    linkURL="images/Schwestern11_001.jpg"
    linkTarget="_blank">
    <caption>Auf dem Weg zur Ilkahöhe</caption>
  </image>

Re: Some thumbs are not loaded sometimes

Try changing:

thumbPath="thumbs"

.. to:

thumbPath="thumbs/"

... in order for SimpleViewer to successfully read the thumbnails from the 'thumbs' folder.
Please note that the imagePath and thumbPath options were deprecated in SimpleViewer v2.1.2: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/history.html
You can convert an older gallery to SimpleViewer Pro v2.1.3 by using svBuilder-Pro and following the 'Upgrading Exisiting Galleries to Version 2.1.3' instructions on this page: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … grade.html
