Topic: Multiple Gallery Cache issue options.as file error
First up, I love Simple viewer. Fantastic app, so customisable. However. I have a problem. I have searched high and low on the forum for a similar issue but there does not appear to be anyone else with this same error.
I will attempt to make this brief.
I purchased the Pro version of Simple viewer.
Totally understand how to do custom layout using the Options.as file.
I totally understand how to have multiple galleries of simple viewer all loaded into a Master SWF file. eg. wwwDOTdannykildareDOTcom
Each gallery loaded into the swf file is its own unique simpleviewer swf file. The only difference between each gallery swf file is the path to the XML file. Thus multiple galleries.
This system works flawlessly, HOWEVER
I am now developing another website using exactly the same technique. BUT with one difference. I have multple galleries, but the layouts vary slightly. i.e. size of images, position of titles etc.
Therefore I think...no problem. I simply change the Options file and some of the variables and export the separate gallery files. They are all different swf files so I should be able to load each of the galleries and get my different layouts. No problem.
I create the gallerys, all the different layout is correct. but here is the twist. Whatever gallery I load first loads all its layout correctly. But when I load a different gallery that is supposed to have a different layout, it SOMEHOW adheres to the first galleries Options.as file changes.
you will click on the link NEW POOLS
It loads the gallery fine with a nice big image.
Then you click on RENOVATIONS
You will see a bit of text to the right , but the image displayed is the same size as NEW POOLS gallery displaying right underneath the text.
NOW, if you reload the site and first goto RENOVATIONS
you will see that it formats the image size correctly, but then you click on NEW POOLS, and all the image sizes are small like in renovations.
This is not an issue with the XML file, as it is certainly referring to the correct files, and thus loading the correct images. It is definitly loading different simpleviwer swf galleries.
Is there something that you have programed in to the way the swf files work to store the options.as settings in cache somewhere? That is the only thing I can think of that is giving us this problem. Like I said, if your layout never has to change, then this problem is no big deal, but if you want different layout for different galleries, there is this wierd issue.
Any thoughts, really desparate to get this site up and running.
