Topic: background image not coming up in gallery...

Instead of my desired background image, I am getting a green background in the gallery.  I adjusted the index.html file with the following line:

var params={};
        params.wmode="transparent";

And I added the image to the gallery.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<simpleviewergallery maxImageWidth="500" maxImageHeight="700" textColor="333333" frameColor="ffffff" frameWidth="5" stagePadding="40" navPadding="40" thumbnailColumns="6" thumbnailRows="1" navPosition="bottom" vAlign="center" hAlign="center" title="" enableRightClickOpen="false" backgroundImagePath="artgallery/gallery.jpg" imagePath="" thumbPath="">

What silly little thing am I missing?

I would try the  backgroundImagePath either as  backgroundImagePath="http://www.rachelraynes.com/room/artgallery/gallery.jpg" or  backgroundImagePath="gallery.jpg"

Yes I checked that I feel like i have followed it correctly.  Still not working.

Re: background image not coming up in gallery...

I'm wondering if it's not an issue with the gallery.xml file and instead an issue with the transparency.  The .html page includes the code for transparency, but the background color "#ffffff" is what is coming up now.

Re: background image not coming up in gallery...

var params={};
params.wmode="transparent";

... will work for swfobject 2 but you are using swfobject 1.5
Try:

fo.addParam("wmode", "transparent");

...instead.

Re: background image not coming up in gallery...

It actually works in the index.html file but not in the gallery2.html file that I inserted it into...

Re: background image not coming up in gallery...

The backgroundImagePath in http://www.rachelraynes.com/room/artgallery/gallery.xml is relative to http://www.rachelraynes.com/room/gallery2.html so try changing the backgroundImagePath to:

backgroundImagePath="artgallery/gallery.jpg"
