Topic: IE8 not finding images

I am embedding a Simpleviewer-pro gallery in an html page and using the following code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="Flash_Galleries/AFsv_gallery/svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript">
var flashvars = {};
flashvars.baseURL = "Flash_Galleries/AFsv_gallery/";
flashvars.galleryURL = "gallery.xml";
simpleviewer.ready(function () {
    simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "95%", "95%", "transparent", true,flashvars, null, null, false);
<div id="sv-container"></div>

The html page can be viewed at: … _Test.html

It works fine in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. However, in IE8 I get the following message "No Images Specified in Gallery XML".
I have also tested when the html page is in the gallery folder (no path issues), but still get the same message in IE8. I'm a bit of a loss as where to start.
Any suggestions?


Re: IE8 not finding images

Your gallery's XML file has opening and closing tags of <gallery> and </gallery>.
Try changing these to <simpleviewergallery> and </simpleviewergallery> respectively.
Also, if your gallery's XML file is named 'gallery.xml' and is located inside the folder specified by the baseURL, then you can safely remove the galleryURL line from your embedding code.

Re: IE8 not finding images

Thank you very much. That did get rid of the error message. However, the gallery does not display in IE8. All I see is white background in the content area. The content area shown is the same size as shown in the other browsers which display the flash gallery.
I checked the IE8 add-ons and shockwave is enabled.
Any suggests will be greatly appreciated.

Ok no worries, not sure why it is working now, but I downloaded Adobe Flash again and that seemed to take care of it.

Again, thanks for your help.
