Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

The first line of your gallery.xml file should be:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

... not:

<!--xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

It sure looks like it starts with <!-- to me.
Check http://www.barrierinc.webs.com/Gallery/gallery.xml in a browser.

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

It says <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> when i open the file on my computer.... I never changed it.

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

Try editing your gallery.xml in notepad and make sure it's <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> and re-upload it.

i have still nothing

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

I got it to work but my images now show up as X's

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

Remove the </xml> tag from the end of your gallery.xml file.
You also have your imagePath pointing to a zip file rather than a folder containing the images.

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

Same host, same problem.
Your gallery.xml file also starts with <!--xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
It should be <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

After a little investigation, I can confirm that the file is being changed by the host (webs.com) when it is uploaded via their control panel (FTP is not available on their free accounts but probably wouldn't make any difference).

I tried changing the file extension to .txt but as soon as I uploaded, <? reverted to <!--.  I then tried editing the file via their control panel but as soon as I saved it, <? reverted to <!-- once again.

However, coinslab seems to have managed to change it and have it stick.
Perhaps coinslab can let us in on the secret!

In the meantime, my advice? Change host.

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

ah, okay. thanks though!

coinslab - how did you do it?

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

In notepad... I saved the file as unicode it worked fine then.
But no luck on the pictures showing up.

Re: Images Don't Show up on Web Server

coinslab, your gallery.xml file still has a </xml> tag at the end which shouldn't be there.

(Just for the record, I tried saving gallery.xml as unicode but webs.com still changed <? into <!-- on upload.)
