Topic: Unchecked Use Flash - Goes straight to thumbnails

Hi there!

I am quite a fan of this plugin and would like to use it on the site I'm working on.

I'm having an issue however with using the non-flash version. I want it to be able to go straight to the first image of the gallery rather than the list of thumbnails, if this is possible.

The reason I'm using the non-flash version is basically because I need the captions to display 150 words and the other options seem to cut off the text after so many words.

If anyone has a solution for this, it'd be awesome! I think I'm missing something...

Re: Unchecked Use Flash - Goes straight to thumbnails

You would need to purchase SimpleViewer-Pro, update WP-SimpleViewer by following the instructions here and set the Pro-only Mobile Player Option mobileShowThumbs="FALSE" in WP-SimpleViewer's 'Pro Options' text area (which will disable the thumbnails and initially display the first image in the gallery).
A full list of the Mobile Player Options (which require SimpleViewer-Pro) can be found here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … tml#mobile

SimpleViewer-Pro would also give you greater control over the captions in the Flash Player.
You would have access to the following Caption Options: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … ml#caption
... and could also positions the Caption Area using a Fixed Layout if required: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … html#fixed

Re: Unchecked Use Flash - Goes straight to thumbnails

Hi Steven,

Thanks for the quick reply.

If I were to upgrade to the Pro version and change the option to false, would I lose that thumbnail functionality all together? What I would like is that when a person lands on the gallery, the first image is displayed, but they still have an option to click to view the thumbnails.
Also, in the Pro version, is the non-flash version capable of using the arrow keys to navigate through images?

Correct.

Set the (Pro-only option) firstImageIndex="0" in your gallery's XML file (and remove mobileShowThumbs="FALSE").

Also, in the Pro version, is the non-flash version capable of using the arrow keys to navigate through images?

No. Keyboard controls are not supported in the Mobile Player (Standard or Pro).
