Topic: Gallery like New York Times' Lens?

Hi,

I've been trying to figure this out by looking at the demos, but haven't seen it done so wanted to check here before I look elsewhere.

I really like the format and navigation of http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/

Most of the time I post single pictures, but sometimes I have a series of pictures.

At the Lens you use the left and right arrows next to the photo (or left and right arrow key if you are in fullscreen mode) to go between the posts. If there are more than one picture, you will see numbers at the bottom that you use (or up/down arrow keys if you are in fullscreen mode) for looking at the rest of the photos.

What I like about it is that there's no difference between a single photo or a group of photos, they will still show up in the right date order.

So I basically want it to function like a photo blog where you either see the photo of the day or the first photo of that days series of photos.

Is it possible to do something like that with Simple Viewer?

SimpleViewer-Pro does not support navigating between multiple galleries. To do this you could embed SV-Pro into a Flash movie and create custom navigation to switch between galleries. Check instructions for embedding SV-Pro in Flash here: http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … html#flash
