You are not the only one who is confused, believe me.
I trashed everything and extracted everything from the original zip files.
I followed your steps and now SimpleViewer-Pro galleries seems to be working when exported from iPhoto using the plugin.
However AutoViewer-Pro galleries are not working.The error I get is that the gallery.xml "file does not exist"
file:///Users/merb/Desktop/__test%20script%20output/Autoalbum1/gallery.xml file does not exist
I did as you instructed... I copied the autoviewer.swf out of autoviewer_pro/web and renamed it to AutoViewer.swf. I then replaced the SWF named AutoViewer in the Users -> "my user name" -> Library -> Application Support -> iPhoto -> Plugins -> FAE4iPhoto.iPhotoExporter -> Contents -> Resources.
After the Gallery gets exported by iPhoto, Safari launches and the window for the gallery appears, but it is blank except for the Play button and the right arrow button, and Safari has an activity error saying the gallery.xml file does not exist. When I look in the exported gallery folder, I can see the XML file, it is named "gallerydata.xml", so is the XML file being named incorrectly by the plugin during export? I have no idea what is going on with this.
If I rename the "gallerydata.xml" file to "gallery.xml" and launch the gallery in Safari again, then I get errors saying that the image files do not exist. Looking at the path of the errors, it seems that the path being specified is incorrect and is not including the "images" directory. So if I move the images out of the images gallery and up one level, then launch the gallery again, it works. So somewhere, the XML file is being named incorrectly and the path to the exported images is not correct. Here is the error that Safari reports...notice the path...
As you can see, the image path is excluding the "images" directory which is why the images cannot be found. They actually are in the exported gallery, but the path is "Album1/images/". the plugin apparently is specifying an incorrect name for the XML file and the images path.
Look, I'm not the brightest lightbulb in the pack, but I'm pretty sure I've followed all the instructions properly.
Could you please check this for me because I did not spend $90 on these two plugins for nothing. I need them to work or they are a complete waste of my money.
