Topic: multiple embedded galleries - the answer

Right multiple galleries - it really is easy once you know how.(I had a technical friend work this out for me (and the cat in this forum!), but i thought I would share because I struggled with it for days)

first of all create all your galleries in their seperate folders (keeping xml, swf, object, thumbs, images, index etc in same folder) Place these whole folder in your root folder (make sure you give the folders differnent names - ie photogallery, poem gallery, whatever)

In your root folder make your webpages as normal. Then place the html file you have made that you want the veiwer to appear on in the correct gallery folder (that you have just created (see above) (you probably could just make it in the correct folder in the first place thinking about it)

then delete that index file that was generated by default. Now this html file will talk to the xml, swf ect files because it is in the same folder. You need to add the code to the html file as you would normally so that it plays the flash movie (dont forget the header script)

Then all you need to do is make sure you check all the links to the html file as it is now in you gallery folder. (give each gallery folder a different name)

hope this helps and saves people a lot of time

Re: multiple embedded galleries - the answer

I've got the same problem. Driving myself crazy! And the FAQ doesn't explain it to me enough.

The problem is that if I make two gallery's in one html page with two links in that page, I have to make at least one of the galleries in another folder. But once the site goes to the other folder, it can not find his way back to the original folder. This results in page not found when I want to click to another page. If I make two different galleries in the original folder, it shows the same gallery on both links.

I hope anyone has the answer, I'm freaking out!

Thanks!
