Please see 'Embedding in a Joomla Site' here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … tml#joomla
You should also be able to use the baseURL method of embedding described here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … l#external

Re: is simpleviewer compatible with joomla

SimpleViewer Pro 2 works fine in Joomla 1.5.23, however, I does NOT seem tu run in Joomla 1.6 (in fact 1.7). In Joomla 1.6 you cannot set the user parameters to "no editor", you have to choose one of the editors. I pasted the following into one of the articles, but it just doeas not work.

<iframe src="my_gallery_folder_name/index.html" width="600" height="400" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
(The gallery folder is in the root Joomla folder, of course.)

Suggestions will be welcome!

Re: is simpleviewer compatible with joomla

i am not specialist but i see everybody saying don't use iframe anymore.

is it still advised for joomla ?

how does it work with joomla ?
you make a site and there is a room for a slideshow.
how do you add it ? do we use notepad to add your lines ?

i have seen joomla tools which are perfectly integrated with joomla and ounce defined, they just add to the page

a small tuto would be nice

Re: is simpleviewer compatible with joomla

In Joomla 1.6 you cannot set the user parameters to "no editor", you have to choose one of the editors.

In Joomla 1.7.0, go to 'Administration -> Site -> Global Configuration' and change the 'Default Editor' to 'Editor - None' from drop-down selection.

However, if using the default editor (TinyMCE), try the following:
(1) Go to 'Administration -> Extensions -> Plugin Manager'
(2) Click on the name 'Editor - TinyMCE'
(3) In the 'Basic Options' control panel, ensure 'Entity Encoding' is 'raw'
(4) Also, in the 'Basic Options' control panel, remove 'script' and 'iframe' from the 'Prohibited Elements' text area
(5) Click 'Save & Close' to save the new settings
(6) Go to 'Administration -> Content -> Article Manager -> Add New Article'
(7) Click the 'Toggle Editor' Button to display the editor's options if they are not already visible
(8) Click the 'HTML' button to open the 'HTML' window
(9) Paste your embedding code (whether it is the baseURL or <iframe> method) into the window
(10) Click 'Update' to close the 'HTML' window
(11) Click 'Save & Close' to publish the article

Re: is simpleviewer compatible with joomla

Hello, Steven!
I have been very busy lately so I could not reply. Anyway, thanks for your tips. Everything goes well until the last step. When I try to display the article I can only see the titile and some blank space. After re-opening the article for checking I don't see the saved code. So the article was saved without the SV code. You can have a look at the parameters here:

Re: is simpleviewer compatible with joomla

I notice from your screenshot that you are using the <iframe> method.
There are several suggestions regarding dealing with <iframe>s in Joomla in this Joomla forum thread which may help:
http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?p=1535882

Otherwise, try using the baseURL embedding code method as described here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … l#external to see if this makes a difference.

Also, you could try using a different editor other than TinyMCE (or no editor) if you have the option.

Re: is simpleviewer compatible with joomla

As for now I downloaded the Modules Anywhere extensions and it works like a charm!

Here's how to do it:

1. create a module including the SV embed code
2. write an article
3. place the cursor where you want the SV gallery to be
4. click 'insert module' (below the edit window) and choose the module created in step 1.
5. save and enjoy!

I WILL have a look at the method you mentioned just to know the possibilities but the above is just super!
