Topic: gallery.xml absolute path not working as expected
i have spent a few hours troubleshooting some issues.
im trying to get simpleviewer working with my portal system (dot net nuke) but i am having a world of trouble with the paths to the files.
i just cant get simpleviewer to read a gallery.xml file that exists in another folder.
when pulling this file form the root of the site it fails:
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400" id="myMovieName">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="/DesktopModules/quintSoft/quintSoft.flashGallery/quintSoft.flashGallery/viewer.swf">
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#000000>
<PARAM NAME=xmlDataPath VALUE="/DesktopModules/quintSoft/quintSoft.flashGallery/quintSoft.flashGallery/gallery.xml">
however when i pull the same file from the folder that actually has the gallery.xml in it, it works fine:
shouldnt the paths i entered produce the same result no matter where the html doc is located? afterall that IS the whole point behind absolute pathing isnt it?
any advice appreciated!
