Topic: Embedded SV gallery not showing in mobile devices. Help.

Hi,

We've managed to embed SV pro (V2.2) into a test page using an iFrame.

All the SV files including the html are on dropbox and can be viewed here:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/26960752/test4/index.html

The page into which we embedded the SV html is here: http://www.charissegardiner.com/test 

When we view the page via IE, Chrome or FF - both the flash version and the non-flash version (flash plug-in disabled) come up perfectly.

The problem we are having is that when we view http://www.charissegardiner.com/test on either an IPad or Android mobile device SV does not show at all.

Yet, when we view the html file directly (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/26960752/test4/index.html) on our mobile devices the non-flash version appears perfectly.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, another user has discovered this phenomenon in this thread: http://www.simpleviewer.net/forum/viewt … p?id=14980
It would appear that in Mobile Safari iOS 5.0.1 (I do not have an Android device on which to test), a SimpleViewer gallery will not be displayed in an <iframe> if the gallery is hosted on a different domain to the HTML page containing the <iframe> code.
I have notified the developers but, at present, I do not know the cause or have a solution.

Try either hosting the gallery files on your own server and/or try using the baseURL method of embedding rather than using an <iframe>.

I'm still having trouble with this.

Any movement on solving this?

Tried this... didn't work. You can see the test at www.charissegardiner.com/test. The top one uses the baseURL method.

You are still using an iframe for top gallery on this page: http://www.charissegardiner.com/test

Hi Felix -

Urgh! Of course it is!

So it seams it's not currently possible to embed SV into Google Sites that is viewable on mobile devices because of Google's coding limitation (they only allow scripts via an xml gadget (aka iframe)).

I have tried several configurations and have had no luck with either Apple or Android devices. Do you have any idea as to why this is??  Is it fixable?

Cheers and thanks.
Creighton.

Is it fixable?

Yes. It will be fixed in the next version. Unfortunately, I do not know when this will be.
