Topic: Links do not work

Hello,

First of all, congratulations for your great work.
Simpleviewer is powerful yet easy to use and I will be able to give it to my end users.

I am running Simpleviewer standard version 2.0 in both IE 8 and Chrome 3.
When running SV locally, none of the links are working : "a" tags embedded in the caption tags in the gallery.xml file, the "SIMPLEVIEWER" button in the corner, linkurl parameters, etc.
Nothing happens when I click on them.

Could this behavior be due to a security setting in my browsers or an issue with my flash player ?
When I run the examples from your web site, everything works fine.

Thanks for your help,
Vincent

Re: Links do not work

Hi,

this is probably caused by a security setting in IE when viewing galleries locally. Try uploading your files to a web server.

Re: Links do not work

I have this effect on Firefox and IE. Is this something Flash specific?

Please post the URL to your gallery that is having issues.

Re: Links do not work

Sorry, but the problems occurs only with local galleries, as Felix stated. After uploading the links are working.
Environment: Win XP SP3, Firefox 3.5, IE 7.0.5, Flash 10,0,42,34.

Re: Links do not work

So you are only going to be running the gallery locally? IE7 has a feature called Cross-Domain Protection that is non-configurable, this is probably the issue. Try adding the link your are trying to open to your browsers Trusted Sites Zone.

Re: Links do not work

It happens when I edit and test the gallery.xml and index.html locally on my machine. The links won't work. Perhaps simpleviewer can't handle file-based-destinations (file:///C:/folder...) in the links?

Re: Links do not work

Hi to all !!!

I realllyy like simpleviewer. Everything seems to work perfect. But I have a problem. I'm adding a small gallery (300x300) and I want to include a link in each picture to other page of the same website. I tried changing the link in linkURL, but it doesn't work (no IE or Firefox). I tried in 2 different servers and it doesn't work. I tried to add the site to secure sites, but nothing happens. I can't make that any link work. It doesn't give me any error message. Do I have to change other file from gallery.xml? i copy this file down, just that i put google, just to try it works with something, but it doesn't. I made the pictures with Photoshop.
I hope someone can help me.  sad
Thanks in advance.
