Topic: clueless....gallery XML not found error

HI! I just created a cimple viewer gallery using Picasa ( with help from a more knowledgeable friend). Now I am trying to put it in my web page. I am using weebly.com. There is an swf element I can add to my page. I did this and uploaded the simple viewer SWF file but I get "gallery xml file not found"

I see the gallery XML file in the my simple viewer gallery folder and I see my SWF file. Excuse me if this is a dumb question but is the gallery file supposed to be IN the SWF file? I am really cluless on this stuff so bear with me.

Also, here is my gallery xml code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

It looks like the image path and thumb path is empty...is there supposed to be something in between the ""?

And it also says something about flickr in the top of the code...I am not using Flickr...does this have anything to do with it?

thanks for your time in helping me out. Chances are, I will not understand what you tell me but maybe if I show it to my more computer knowledgeable friend, she might know. LOL

Re: clueless....gallery XML not found error

When I view my gallery I see the message 'Gallery XML Not Found'. How do I fix this?

This message means the SimpleViewer SWF cannot find the gallery.xml file that describes the gallery. Make sure the gallery.xml file is in the gallery folder. Check Troubleshooting Pathing Problems.

Is the gallery.xml in the same folder as your html and swf file? if not you need to point to it using the galleryURL pram in your HTML file.

Re: clueless....gallery XML not found error

Thanks for the quick reply. As I figured, I really don't understand anything that I read on those links or anything that you have explained . It's like a foreign language to me. I will send this page to my friend and maybe she will understand it better.
