Not sure, I don't use iWeb. If anyone has used SimpleViewer with iWeb, please add a comment here.

Hey there varkgirl - I'm glad to find you here...

A question about guide to incorporating simpleviewer in iWeb...

Is it possible to publish to a folder first to check everything BEFORE posting on the server??

Thanks as always

Re: Simpleviewer in iWeb

The links varkgril posted work well. It took me a few hours to get it to work.
I have 2 tips that will help.

1.) Make sure you create a text box in iWeb for creating your iframe box. Do not make a shape/picture box.

2). When you open your iweb html page in TextEdit, go to your "iframe_code_here" text. You will have to remove the font information in the 1-2 lines in front that point. This part was left out from the tutorials.

Good luck and thanks for sharing the tips here.

Re: Simpleviewer in iWeb

Does anyone know how to use these iframe methods in iWeb that allow for a transparent simpleviewer background?

The tips I have found in other areas of this forum, are not for iframes and none of the links I have found with transparent backgrounds have been done with the iweb/iframe combo.

Any info is appreciated. Thanks

Re: Simpleviewer in iWeb

nevermind.

I figured it out. To make the simpleviewer background transparent with an iframe, you have to go to the simpleviewer index.html file. Half way down in the code look for "body" you have to delete the lines for background-color.

Then under:
var fo = new SWFObject("viewer.swf", "viewer", "100%", "100%", "7", "#000000");

Add this:
fo.addParam("wmode","transparent");

In all the posts I have read about adding "wmode", "transparent" , no one mentioned that you have to delete the line regarding background-color. It took a few hours until I got lucky and took a guess at deleting that line.

Hope this helps others,
Jay W

I don't think that should really be necessary, but won't hurt either way

Re: Simpleviewer in iWeb

I would have to guess that has something to do with your image sizes, the transparent background, or the speed of your host, not iweb.
