Topic: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

Last week I bought the SimpleVIewerPro.
(I use  Mac, LR2, Safari 4.0.4 and Firefox 3.5.5, svBuilder)

First question
On my Mac the gallery appears very nice, but on PC - IE8 (maybe also IE7)
the submenu-items don’t appear OVER the SimpleViewer gallery and OVER PostcardViewer-no Pro.
For the SVPgallery I used the JavaScript Embed code.

See:

http://www.franslemmens.com/pages/svp/svp-gallery.html

http://www.franslemmens.com/pages/Viewe … iewer.html

Second question SVPro
I have put the  firstImageIndex = “1”  The preview appears, but the thumbnail (number 1) appears as a cross (on Mac and also IE8). When I reload or hover over the cross the image appears. How can I solve this? Do I have to refer to the filename?

Any help welcome.
Thanks,
Marjolijn van Steeden

the submenu-items don’t appear OVER the SimpleViewer gallery

check here: http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … ml#embed_5

I'm not seeing that here. Are you able to replicate the bug?

Referring to firstImageIndex = “1”
How can I send you a screencapture to show you?

For the SimpleViewerPro gallery the drop-down menu works now after embedding: params.wmode = "transparent";

No 1
But how to solve this with the Postcardviewer (not pro).
new link:   http://www.franslemmens.com/pages/pcv/pcv-gallery.html

If I embed it before:
var fo = new SWFObject("viewer.swf", "viewer", "950", "750", "8", "#000000" );

it don’t see the gallery at all.

No 2
Another question about the PostcardViewer. Now we do have 162 image (15 colums, 10,5 rows). Can you see it all?
I read that in case of slow connection 30 is the maximum. Does the Pro version have a higher maximum? Or is it depending on the connection?

No 3
In the Support Info I read about the quality of the thumbs (also an example link), but I cannot find it anymore. In LR2 (before making the gallery) the thumbs look very nice, but online the quality is less.

Can I improve it? Your example looks a bit better.

Thanks again.

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

1. Add fo.addParam("wmode", "opaque"); just before fo.write("flashcontent"); to your PostcardViewer gallery.

2. The number of images depends on the processing power of the computer and the connection speed, the 30 image limit is suggested for both the standard and pro gallery.

I don't need a screen capture, I need the URL of a gallery where the problem is occurring so I can see the problem here. thanks!

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

Felix, the url is:

http://www.franslemmens.com/pages/svp/svp-gallery.html

It occurs on Mac (Safari, FireFox) and PC (IE8)

Thanks,

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

Ok I see the X intermittently now. I noticed you have not uploaded any thumbnail images - is this intentional? Possibly uploading thumbnails would fix the issue?

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

I did upload the folder thumb (as well as gallery.xml, images, simpleviewer.swf, index.html, svp-gallery.html, swobject.js).

Thanks again,

Felix, I don't want to rush you, but I just want to make sure that you saw my answer that

Have a nice weekend and thanks again,

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

The gallery seems to be working fine for me in IE8.

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

None of the thumb images are being found e.g. http://www.franslemmens.com/pages/svp/t … a_001.jpg. I think this may be part of the issue.

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

Rename your 'thumb' folder to 'thumbs' and SimpleViewer will use the thumbnails from there.

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

Thanks very much for your help.

If I change the name of the folder thumb into thumbs NO cross appears. Si it helps!
Probably Lightroom makes a folder thumb (instead of thumbs).

http://www.franslemmens.com/pages/svp/thumbs/

But now next problem: I already noticed that if I removed the folder-thumb the thumbs did appear in simpleviewer. (The thumbs are probably extracted from the folder images).

Now that I renamed the folder into thumbs, the quality is worse, blurred.
It’s on-line now to show you: http://www.franslemmens.com/pages/svp/svp-gallery.html

But I prefer the cross above the bad quality

Is there a way to solve this?

Thanks very much for any help again.

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

Your thumbnails are not the same dimensions as specified in your gallery.xml file and so SimpleViewer is rescaling them.
It would be best to make dedicated thumbnails in the dimensions you plan to use (currently 100x100) and feed these to SimpleViewer in the 'thumbs' folder.

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

Thanks very, very much.

As  the size of the thumbs in simpleviewer is square, it’s difficult to resize to 100x100pix.
Therefore I removed all the tumbs in the folder thumbs, except number 2.

So the cross does not appear and the thumbs are nice. (I will only resize thumb no 2 tomorrow, to have not blurred).

I did not check if  the sv-gallery loads faster with a folder thumbs? Maybe it does?


The second last question left: dark thumbnails
The Lightroom 2 script is still using SimpleViewer 1, the dark thumbnails are an issue in SimpleViewer 2.
When can we expect the update? Or can I solve in another way?

Thanks in advance again,
Marjolijn

Re: No appearance submenu on IE8 and cross thumbnail

The dark thumbnail issue was fixed in SimpleViewer v2.0.1, please use your download link to download the latest version.
