Topic: Thumbnail and .xml issues

I just discovered that there are two ways in which a gallery .xml file gets regenerated, each with very different results:

Method 1:

a. In edit post/page, click the "Add Media" button
b. Click the "Gallery" tab for your existing gallery
c. Click "Save all changes"
d. Click "Update"

Results: The .xml file correctly points to the nice-looking thumbnails (good!), but all whitespace is stripped from the .xml file (bad!).

Method 2:

a. Go to Simpleviewer > Edit Galleries
b. Select "Edit gallery" for the gallery you want to edit
c. Click "Save"

Results: The .xml file is nicely formatted (good!), but no longer points to the thumbnails at all (bad!).  As a result, the resulting web page loads much slower, and the thumbnails look terrible, especially for line art.


Is this a known issue?  Is there a way to get Method 2 to point to the correct thumbnail files automatically?  I'd prefer to have a nicely formatted .xml file, but not at the expense of having to manually add the thumbnail data.

Re: Thumbnail and .xml issues

Thank you for reporting. I will contact the developers regarding these issues.
After completing your Method 2, 'Update' the post and the thumbURLs should, once again, point to the correct files.
