Topic: Simpleview 2 in FireFox

PLEASE help!  I upgraded to v2 to try to solve my FF problem.  I took the web/index.html and gallery.xml files (located in App_Scripts/simpleview) and adjusted for my desired xml paths.  Works still in IE but not in FF!  What am I doing wrong?  I have the correct Flash version installed.  The host server does not block, as some posts have indicated could be problematic.  Following please see the adjusted index.html and gallery.xml.  I also find that I changed the galleryStyle to COMPACT but it is not displaying in either browser in that format.  URL is … index.html.

Thank you in advance, I am desperate here...

BTW, before my adjustments the page worked in FF as well as IE...

Re: Simpleview 2 in FireFox

Your XML should look like this:

<simpleviewergallery galleryStyle="COMPACT" textColor="0x999999" frameColor="0x999999" frameWidth="0" thumbColumns="3" thumbRows="3" showOpenButton="TRUE" showFullscreenButtom="TRUE" maxImageWidth="500" imagePath="/Images/HomeImages/44/" thumbPath="/Images/HomeImages/44/Thumbs/">
<image imageURL="328WoodRdg_front.jpg" thumbURL="328WoodRdg_front.jpg"/>
<image imageURl=328WoodRdg_LR.jpg" thumbURL="328WoodRdg_LR.jpg"/>
<image imageURL="328WoodRdg_yard.jpg" thumbURL="328WoodRdg_yard.jpg"/>
<image imageURL="328WoodRdg_kit.jpg" thumbURL="328WoodRdg_kit.jpg"/>

Re: Simpleview 2 in FireFox

If Miker's suggestion doesnt work try changing height to a set value. I have found in firefox if not a set value for height then it wont show as it thinks its 0px high.

Re: Simpleview 2 in FireFox

imagePath and thumbPath are relative to the HTML page … index.html so, in the XML Page … allery.xml change:

Well, since messing with the paths it doesn't work in IE anymore, either... let me get the pathing right and working in IE again...  :rolleyes:
