Topic: Embedding SV into WebEasy Professional 9.11

I've been trying to embed a SimpleViewer gallery (SV Builder 2.3.1) into a web site I'm trying to build with WebEasy Professional 9.11 (Avanquest), but not having much luck. I am not a programmer. I've tried using their option to insert HTML code (see below) from the SV gallery I created, but it does not work:

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
simpleviewer.ready(function () {
simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "100%", "100%", "222222", true);
});
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

I copied the SV folder and contents into the same location as the web page project in WebEasy, but the preview option does not recognize the embedded HTML ... it's like nothing is there ...

I contacted their on-line support that suggested I try the DropBox method described here (http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … html#embed). I was hoping to have something I can control directly on my own system, and upload updates in one shot as may be required to my host (Network Solutions).

Avanquest even directed me to other third-party options (Visual Light Box) because apparently the WebEasy cannot set up a simple thumbnail gallery.

Re: Embedding SV into WebEasy Professional 9.11

I am not familiar with WebEasy Professional but in order to embed a SimpleViewer gallery in a web page you will need to be able to do the following:
(1) Upload the gallery folder to your web server.
(2) Insert the gallery's HTML embedding code into the web page.

Perhaps it would help if you uploaded your gallery folder to your web server with a dedicated FTP program such as Filezilla and then used the baseURL method of embedding (copying the baseURL embedding code into your web page with WebEasy Professional).

If you continue to experience difficulties, please post the URL of the web page into which you are trying to embed your SimpleViewer gallery so that I can take a look.

Would it make sense, then, that the embedded SV gallery does not appear on a preview of the web page? The site is not yet live (not published to host web server yet).

Re: Embedding SV into WebEasy Professional 9.11

I've uploaded the web site to the host, but am still waiting for the DNS to be resolved (I was advised it could take a few hours).

I cannot view a preview of the result, if any, in WebEasy nor with a browser on my own computer.

This is the URL: http://www.thirdeyephotographics.ca

There is a "gallery" page to which I embedded the SimpleViewer.

I uploaded via FTP the entire SimpleViewer folder and all files.

Once the "Under Construction" page has been replaced with my web site, would appreciate if you took a look and tell me what  you see. Thanks very much for your assistance.

Site is live. Gallery page has big blank area where I embedded the SimpleViewer script.

Re: Embedding SV into WebEasy Professional 9.11

Your web page at http://www.thirdeyephotographics.ca/third_eye_004.htm includes the following code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>

... so your gallery's 'simpleviewer.js' file should be located at: http://www.thirdeyephotographics.ca/svc … eviewer.js
However, going directly to that location in a browser results in an error 404 (file not found).

Check that you have uploaded your gallery files to the same directory as the page containing your gallery's embedding code (in your case your web site's root directory).
If you have uploaded the entire gallery folder to your web server (rather than just the contents of the folder), then you can use the baseURL method of embedding as documented here.

I moved the files to the main directory, and it's working perfectly now. Thanks very much. I just need to add more images.
