Topic: DESPERATE!! SimpleViewer 1.7, Simpleviewer Admin & Flas
**unfortunately I can't post links until I have 5 posts, so where you see "see example here" will not work until I've managed to get 5 posts LOL.
**Has anyone managed to get SimpleViewer 1.7, SimpleViewer Admin AND Loading the content into a Flash Movie (vs. using PHP as the output) to work?
See Description Below:
I know you guys are out there, the ones that are constantly driven to solve a real "interesting" problem, so please, help me out if you can. I'm stuck on this one issue and I can't seem to get past it - it's been two days now I can barely look at this stuff anymore! I need a fresh new pair of eyes eyeballing this stuff maybe it's a very simple thing.
SimpleViewer is an XML gallery Slideshow - Simpleviewer Admin is an administrative tool that creates dynamic galleries within Simpleviewer - but created by a different party.
Both work fine when SimpleViewer is housed within it's intended PHP page. But when I try to load it into a level of my main flash movie? FORGET IT! Kaputz - can't get past the "Loading XML".
Detailed Description and links to Open Source software below.
There are three components here I'm dealing with.
1.) SimpleViewer V1.7 - available free here. I did purchase the source code but it's not the most recent, which is fine, since the below doesn't work with the most recent anyway.
2.) SimpleViewer Admin - available free here.
3.) My main flash file (which, for our purposes could be *any* flash file - blank or whatever - if you try to load it up in a level, no go) , for which I'm attempting to import SimpleViewer into, 2 galleries, each gallery is dynamically generated via SimpleViewer Admin.
I can get the SimpleViewer Admin to generate the galleries and work FINE when SimpleViewer is embedded in it's intended PHP file. No problems there. It works. See example here. Notice that the gallery is located in subdirectory "people".
Now, I have my main flash file which is in the root directory and I have a navigation, where a user selects from "people" to "fine art", which is entitled nav_portfolio.swf and loaded in level 5 of the main movie. See here (sidenote: the red is just to see the white text of the simpleviewer progress and won't be there once completed).
OK, well, I see that it loads the simpleviewer "viewer.swf" in the "people" directory, but it's not finding the xml data. Even when I put nav_portfolio.swf in the "people" directory, it's not reading it, see here.
So, obviously there's an issue here I just can't figure out if it's parsing related or - ? I'm no xml guru. I am sincerely hoping that someone can help me, I need to get this thing up and running so I can actively work AWAY from the computer :-)
Any help would be FANTASTIC. I would really appreciate it.
