Topic: renaming "image" folder

I have just installed this programme onto my desktop...

I am trying to embed  it into my dreamweaver website, however as I already have an "image" folder, it replaces it (thankfully I had a backup) so I renamed the "image" folder for simpleviewer "imagegallery" therefore, the images dont show properly.

Can anyone tell me what I have to change in order for this to work, after renaming the image folder from simple viewer.

this is all I see

Re: renaming "image" folder

There are two things you can do.


Option #1:
(1) Rename your gallery's 'images' folder to something else.
(2) Open your gallery's XML file in a plain text editor and change all the paths that refer to the 'images' folder in the imageURL and linkURL entries (a single global search and replace action should take care of it).

... or:

Option #2:
(1) Upload your complete gallery folder (not just the contents) to your web server. This avoids the need to rename any files or folders as there will no longer be two 'images' folders in the same directory.
(2) Use the baseURL method of embedding as documented here.
