Topic: Was working great in WordPress - now frozen?

My galleries were working wonderfully - now they all freeze when loading, like this one.

Have tried on multiple browsers and machines. Same thing happens.
Any diagnoses?

It looks like WP-SimpleViewer has either been uninstalled or deactivated.
Check in the 'Plugins' section to make sure that WP-SimpleViewer is both installed and activated.

Re: Was working great in WordPress - now frozen?

Dear Steve,

Actually it is both installed and activated, and I am using the Pro upgrade.

What seems to be happening is when I create a gallery, I am getting the wrong URLs in the XML file. When I originally created my blog, it was at http://www.pietrodesigns.com.php5-19.df … stlink.com. Now it is at http://www.pietrodesigns.com, and WordPress has renamed all the image files to that base URL.

So SimpleViewer is mixing up the old site URL and the new one. For example, it is calling for the LinkURL at the old URL, but the thumbURL at the new (correct) URL. So that's what needs to be fixed, I think.
Thanks,
Tom

Just FYI here is some of what my xml looks like:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<simpleviewergallery maxImageWidth="800" maxImageHeight="550" textColor="0xffffff" frameColor="0xffffff" frameWidth="0" thumbColumns="3" thumbRows="5" thumbPosition="LEFT" title="" showOpenButton="true" showFullscreenButton="true" languageList="" galleryStyle="MODERN" useFlickr="false" flickrUserName="" flickrTags="" e_bgColor="transparent" e_g_width="950px" e_g_height="650px" e_useFlash="true" captionPosition="top" showImageNumber="false" postID="91"><image imageURL="http://www.pietrodesigns.com.php5-19.dfw1-2.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Waterloo-01.jpg" thumbURL="http://www.pietrodesigns.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Waterloo-01-150x150.jpg" linkURL="http://www.pietrodesigns.com.php5-19.dfw1-2.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Waterloo-01.jpg" linkTarget="_blank"><caption/></image><image imageURL="http://www.pietrodesigns.com.php5-19.dfw1-2.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Waterloo-02.jpg" thumbURL="http://www.pietrodesigns.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Waterloo-02-150x150.jpg" linkURL="http://www.pietrodesigns.com.php5-19.dfw1-2.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Waterloo-02.jpg" linkTarget="_blank"><caption><![CDATA[Construction of Memorial 2007-2008]]></caption></image><image imageURL="http://www.pietrodesigns.com.php5-19.dfw1-2.websitetestlink.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Waterloo-03.jpg" thumbURL="http://www.pietrodesigns.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Waterloo-03-150x150.jpg"

Re: Was working great in WordPress - now frozen?

I seem to have solved my own problem - I ran a plugin that updated/corrected all the URL paths in my site ... so when I create a new SimpleViewer gallery, the XML references are correct.
