Topic: for the love of God HELP ME! Images and Thumbs Issue

I hope somebody reading this will know better what to do then I. Here is the problem with SimpleViewer: I‘ve embed it on my website server (Microsoft Office live) correctly. I appears fine, however the message “GALLERY NOT FOUND” keeps on flashing. The problem is that I CAN’T add an entire folder named “images” or “thumbs” to the server. I can only add single files like: 123.jpg or index.html. Here is how I embedded my simpleviewer:   

<embed src="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/Documents/viewer.swf" FlashVars="xmlDataPath=XXXXXXXXXXXXXX/Documents/gallery.xml" bgcolor=#000000 WIDTH=420 HEIGHT=520 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>

And here is what my galler.xlm looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <simpleviewerGallery maxImageWidth="480" maxImageHeight="480" textColor="0xFFFFFF" frameColor="0xffffff" frameWidth="20" stagePadding="40" thumbnailColumns="3" thumbnailRows="3" navPosition="left" title="SimpleViewer Title" enableRightClickOpen="true" backgroundImagePath="" imagePath="" thumbPath="">
- <image>
  <filename>1.jpg</filename>
  <caption>TEST</caption>
  </image>
  </simpleviewerGallery>

Please if you have any clue how to get this fixed, say something. Although I am not good with HTML I will try my best, please be as detailed as you can. Thanks

Re: for the love of God HELP ME! Images and Thumbs Issue

By default SimpleViewer expects the following file structure:

your_gallery_folder
.........images
.........thumbs
.........gallery.xml
.........index.html
.........swfobject.js
.........viewer.swf

If you do not have this structure then you will need to tell Simpleviewer where to find your files. There are many ways to do this. How you do this with Microsoft Office Live I don't know but if yo uare uploading images to a third party server like Mociosoft or Flickr etc then you need to find out the exact url of the image files and input that address into the gallery.xml
You also need to input the exact location of the galler.xml into the index.html file.
Generally the image file and thumb file have the same file name so I don't know how it will work if they are in the same folder?

For example here is an excerpt from a Flickr gallery.xml

"<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!-- Last updated&#58; Fri, 03 Aug 2007 16&#58;16&#58;02 -0400 -->
<simpleviewerGallery 
            maximageHeight="525"
            maximageWidth="787"
            textColor="0xFFFFFF"
            frameColor="0xffffff"
            frameWidth="4"
            stagePadding="30"
            thumbnailColumns="4"
            thumbnailRows="4"
            navPosition="left"
            enableRightClickOpen="false"
            backgroundimagePath=""
            title="Denali 2006"
            imagePath="flickrViewer.php?mode=img&amp;size=large&amp;image="
            thumbPath="flickrViewer.php?mode=img&amp;size=thumb&amp;image=">
