Topic: can i insert postcardviewer into an existing html page?

hi guys & gals...

i'm building a static website using dreamweaver 8; all going fine so far..... until i got to the photo galleries!

i really dont want to resize images to create thumbs etc, its time consuming & so i stumbled upon simpleviewer.  hooray i thought, the answer to all my problems.  however, having found no tutorial within this forum (or faqs) to get around the problems i had trying to embed simpleviewer into a table cell, i've given up & am now trying postcardviewer.

i cn create a gallery no problem; it views fine in ie7, i can change the background colour etc.

my question now is simple: can i embed that gallery into my html page? i want to keep my nav bar, logo etc & simply drop the postcardviewer gallery into a table cell.

simpleviewer covers this within the faqs (even though i cant do it!, but nothing similar for postcardviewer.

help!

Re: can i insert postcardviewer into an existing html page?

that's great felix - thanks.  however that DOES mean i'll probably have the same problems!

tell me, is it usual for people to experience all this?! the main problem i'm having is i can't view the gallery/ies within my pages. i'm sure i'm doing something simple wrong but i can't figure it. i just get the message about "...requires flashplayer. click here to... blah".

fyi i'm running xp & using dreamweaver 8. i'm also running the most up-to-date version of flash player.

and having a nightmare with this - it's the one thing stopping me from launching my site sad

anything you can advise would be greatly appreciated...

new(ish) problem...

i've got my postcardviewer gallery showing, and can insert it into my table, no problem. however in the top cell of the table, i have a logo, current throughout the site. i can see it there in dreamweaver, but when i preview it disappears! all i get is the postcardviewer gallery!
