I bought showcase pro inkluding juicybox pro and simpleviewer pro today. Is there a work through which I can easily update sv manager?

Please see the Converting from svManager support section which should help you to switch over from svManager to Showkase.

Or could you send me a downloadlink for the latest version? I think we still use 1.5.

The problem with Java within svManager was resolved in v1.8.6 when the Java upload applet was replaced by an alternative HTML 5 upload module. (Please see the Version History support page for a full list of changes between versions.)

If you still have your original download link from your purchase email, you can use this to download the latest version.
Upgrades are free within the same major version number and the download link always points towards the latest version rather than the version you purchased.

If you cannot find your purchase email or your download link has expired, then please fill in this Upgrade Request Form and the admin team will send you a new download link.

For reference, instructions for upgrading svManager can be found here.
However, svManager has been discontinued (for about 3 years now) and I would recommend that you use Showkase now that you have it. It might take a little while to get used to it (and to convert your existing site) as its interface and feature set is different to that of svManager but it is certainly the best option going forward.

... when viewed in firefox or google chrome the gallery ends up just showing the thumbnails only. I'm guessing the browser is triggering the simpleviewer gallery to show the mobile app mode.

That is correct. The Mobile Player within SimpleViewer was designed to display the gallery on mobile devices so the thumbnails and main images are displayed on separate pages to give the main images as much room as possible on small screen devices.

Many browsers are now blocking Flash content by default (here are links regarding Edge, Chrome and Firefox) and this can trigger the gallery to be displayed by the Mobile Player rather than the Flash Player.
Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done from within a SimpleViewer gallery to prevent this. Please see this SimpleViewer blog entry for more information (and details of our alternative HTML 5 image viewer, Juicebox). Also, this blog entry explains why we created Juicebox in the first place.

You can check to see if Adobe Flash Player is active in your browser by visiting this Adobe help page.

If you see the problem in Chrome, then please try the following steps.

(1) Open Chrome
(2) Click the 'Options' button (the three vertical dots near the top right)
(3) Select 'Settings'
(4) Scroll down to the very bottom
(5) Click the 'Show advanced settings...' link
(6) Scroll down to the 'Privacy' section
(7) Click the 'Content settings...' button
(8) Scroll down to the 'Flash' section
(9) Select 'Allow sites to run Flash'
(10) Click the 'Done' button at the bottom right

Please see this support page for details on how to 'Always Activate' Flash content in Firefox.

Unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do to ensure that visitors to your web site have Adobe Flash Player installed and enabled in their own browsers.

Additionally, Adobe have recently announced that Flash will reach its end of life in 2020.
Here's a short quote from this Adobe blog entry.

Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

With the demise of Flash imminent, I would recommend switching your SimpleViewer galleries to an HTML 5 equivalent, such as Juicebox, which will not be affected by any of the problems currently affecting Flash content.

As a SimpleViewer-Pro user, you are entitled to a 30% discount off the cost of Juicebox-Pro. Details are in our blog entry here.

If you were to purchase Juicebox-Pro, you can convert a SimpleViewer gallery to Juicebox by following the Converting a SimpleViewer Gallery instructions.

I hope this helps to clarify things.

That's great!
Thank you for letting me know.

The first image in your gallery seems to be missing and, in the Flash gallery (but not the Mobile Gallery), this will prevent all other images from being displayed.

According to your baseURL and 'gallery.xml' file, the first image in your gallery should be located here:
http://www.rkamarowski.com/test/rkamaro … Player.png
... but going directly to that location in a browser results in an error 404 (file not found).

Please double-check that the 'AccordionPlayer.png' image is present in the correct location on your web server (alongside your other gallery images).
If the image is where it should be, then please check that its permissions are not too restrictive. Default file permissions of 644 should be fine. (You should be able to check and change file permissions using a dedicated FTP program such as Filezilla or via your web hosting account's online File Manager.)

Once you've resolved the problem with the first image in your gallery, all your images should display as expected.

Thanks for the links.
Knowing where your gallery folder is on your web server (and knowing that "Gallery" is a complete SimpleViewer gallery folder), you can use the following embedding code (in any web page throughout your site).

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/test/rkamarowski/images/Gallery/svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var flashvars = {};
    flashvars.baseURL = "/test/rkamarowski/images/Gallery/";
    simpleviewer.ready(function () {
        simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "800", "800", "FFFFFF", true, flashvars);
    });
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

Incidentally, your embedding code currently uses the line:

simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "800", "800", "FFFFFF", true);

You need to include the flashvars Embed Code Parameter in the simpleviewer.load line as follows:

simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "800", "800", "FFFFFF", true, flashvars);

Otherwise, any flashvars variables that you set (such as your baseURL) will not be used.

The file is actually in:
/ test / site / images / Gallery / gallery.xml

If your "Gallery" directory is a complete SimpleViewer gallery folder (and your "test" directory is in your root directory as your path suggests), then you should be able to use the following embedding code.

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/test/site/images/Gallery/svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var flashvars = {};
    flashvars.baseURL = "/test/site/images/Gallery/";
    simpleviewer.ready(function () {
        simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "100%", "100%", "222222", true, flashvars);
    });
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

The leading slashes in the paths above denote your root directory so the embedding code above should work in any web page throughout your site without modification (assuming the notes I made above are correct).

If you continue to experience difficulties, please post the URLs to the following:
(1) The web page that you are trying to embed your gallery into.
(2) Your gallery's 'gallery.xml' file.

Once I'm able to see the problem live on your web server, I should hopefully be able to determine where things are and what paths you should use.

The 'index.html' file is a web page containing the gallery's embedding code and nothing else (to display the gallery on a page of its own).
This 'index.html' file (or any other file you choose to embed a gallery into) can be anywhere on your web server. It does not need to be inside the gallery folder.

By default (if you do not specify a galleryURL or a baseURL in your gallery's embedding code), SimpleViewer will look for a file named 'gallery.xml' in the same directory as the web page containing the embedding code.
If you take the 'index.html' file outside the gallery folder, then the 'index.html' and 'gallery.xml' files will no longer be in the same directory.
However, you can point towards a gallery folder from within your gallery's embedding code using a baseURL flashvar.
For example:

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/mygallery/svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var flashvars = {};
    flashvars.baseURL = "/mygallery/";
    simpleviewer.ready(function () {
        simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "100%", "100%", "222222", true, flashvars);
    });
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

When using a baseURL, the the imageURL and thumbURL paths within the 'gallery.xml' file will be relative to the baseURL itself so there is no need to alter any paths within the 'gallery.xml' file.

For reference, a short descriptions of the baseURL flashvar options can be found here.

Also, the baseURL method of embedding is documented here.

I hope this points you in the right direction.
If you get stuck with anything, please let me know and, if possible, post a link to your gallery's web page so that I can see the problem for myself and hopefully help further. Thank you.

It looks like the 'deceptive site' warning has now been lifted.
Hopefully you'll not see any further warnings from WordFence, either. If you do, then, as a WordFence user, perhaps you could report the false positive result to them.
We previously had a pop-up on the https://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/ page (advertising our other software, Juicebox and Showkase) which we suspect might have been triggering the warning and we have now removed this.

You're welcome.

1) I have Wordfence on my sites and they came back with the following Critical Problems warning messages today from their scans:

Thank you for reporting this problem.
I see what I expect is a related issue issue when trying to view http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pro in Firefox 54.0.1 (Windows 10 PC).

Please let me reassure you that there is nothing malicious within our web site and that the report is a false positive.
I have already filed a false-positive report here: https://safebrowsing.google.com/safebro … ort_error/

2) i don't recall ever using Simpleviewer, only Tiltviewer -- are the Simpleviewer files referenced above applicable to use of Tiltviewer? (since Tiltviewer is what i was using on my site before it became unusable with Flickr)

The 'simpleviewer.js' file is purely for SimpleViewer (not for TiltViewer) and the only link to our web site from within TiltViewer is to the page https://www.simpleviewer.net/tiltviewer/ from the link in the lower right corner of TiltViewer-Standard (the free version) galleries.

3) likely related to the Wordfence scan alert, there is the following warning message on Chrome when attempting to access a Simpleviewer Product url from your Simpleviewer site:

I reckon #1 and #3 and the similar problem I see in Firefox are all related (to the same database of 'deceptive sites') and, hopefully, the false positive report I have filed will convince those at Google to remove 'simpleviewer.net' from their database.

Should I ignore the Wordfence Alerts that are saying those are dangerous files?

It is unfortunate that 'simpleviewer.net' has somehow been flagged as a 'deceptive site' but it should hopefully be only very temporary and there is no harm in ignoring the warning (as, in this case, it is a false positive result).

Unfortunately, yes.
Flickr made a change (~ 14 September 2016) which resulted in all Flash-based applications (not just TiltViewer) being unable to receive data via their API and, thus, display Flickr images.
Although no announcement was made by Flickr at the time (as far as I am aware), this change appears to have been intentional and not just a temporary glitch or bug.
In addition to Flash-based applications being unable to display Flickr images, TiltViewer-Pro was officially retired (back in mid 2015) and there will be no more updates (although an update would not have been able to solve the Flickr problem anyway).
TiltViewer-Standard (the free version) is still available for download (from this web page) but we discontinued and stopped selling TiltViewer-Pro in June 2015 (as noted on the TiltViewer-Pro home page).

Flash is undeniably on its way out and I would encourage anyone looking for an alternative image viewer to check out our HTML web gallery Juicebox.

How does it look at a mobile?

Check out the iPhone Simulation demo gallery and also the Screen Modes support section in the Gallery Tour for more information about how Juicebox adapts to different devices and screen sizes.

And where can I make changes? In SV I did it at the config.xml.

SimpleViewer uses a configuration file named 'gallery.xml'. Juicebox uses a similar file named 'config.xml'.
Download Juicebox-Lite (the free version) from the Download Page and you'll find a sample 'web' gallery (including the 'config.xml' file) inside the zip file. (You can also install JuiceboxBuilder-Lite and create your own galleries.)

I put another screenshot of what I want to change:

Your 'screenshots bad.pdf' file shows a problem which looks to be caused by custom CSS on your web page. I notice that you have some CSS being applied directly to your #sv-container <div> in your 'Style.css' file. Please check to see if this is causing your problem. Also, please check the CSS for all parent containers that your gallery is nested within (#container3 and #mainContent) as this is likely to be where the problem lies.

If you were to set your gallery's width to 100% (in the embedding code) then the gallery should fill the width of its parent container (no matter what the width of the parent container is) without spilling over.

Also, I notice that you also have two elements on your web page with id="pijl1" (a <div> and and an <a> tag) and there is CSS being applied to #pijl1 in your 'Style.css' file. There should be no duplicate ids on a web page. Each id should be unique. This could potentially be causing layout problems on your web page (although I suspect the CSS for your gallery's parent containers to be the cause of the problem).

Thank you for uploading the screenshots.
The 'good' screenshots show the Flash Player version of your gallery.
The 'bad' screenshots show the Mobile Player version (but with a positioning problem, which is why you sometimes see only navigation arrows).
The Mobile Player will be used when Adobe Flash Player is not installed and enabled in the browser (and, unfortunately, even if Adobe Flash Player is installed, browsers are starting to block Flash content by default).
The positioning problem is likely to be due to either:
(1) A bug in SimpleViewer v2.1.3. (Checking the Version History page, certain gallery sizing issues were fixed in SimpleViewer v2.2.0.)
(2) Custom CSS code on your web page conflicting with (and overriding) the Mobile Player's own CSS. Make sure that you do not have any global CSS code on your web page that the gallery might be inheriting.

Juicebox should certainly be a suitable non-Flash alternative.
Please see these two SimpleViewer blog entries for more information on SimpleViewer vs Juicebox.
What does Juicebox Mean for SimpleViewer-Pro Customers?
The End of Flash and What this Means for SimpleViewer.

Juicebox can certainly display PNG files but there are a couple of known problems with JuiceboxBuilder's handling of PNG images. (The developers are aware of these problems and they should hopefully be fixed in a future version.)

When JuiceboxBuilder-Pro resizes PNG files for a gallery, JPEG images are created and any transparency in the PNG files is lost. Transparent regions are rendered as black in the main image but white in the thumbnail.

The solution to this should be to prevent JuiceboxBuilder from processing PNG images by deselecting the 'Resize Images' checkbox on the 'Images' tab.
If this is done, JuiceboxBuilder should just copy the source images across to the gallery's 'images' folder (without any processing). This much is true (images remain untouched) but the PNG images in the 'images' folder are (incorrectly) given '.jpg' file extensions. (The paths in the gallery's 'config.xml' file match and browsers should still be able to display them, though.)
However, thumbnail images are still generated (as JPEG files) and the transparency issue cannot be overcome from within the JuiceboxBuilder interface.

The best course of action when using PNG files with transparency would be to just manually copy them across to the gallery's 'images' folder and then make sure that there is an <image> entry for each PNG image in the gallery's 'config.xml' file. The corresponding imageURL and thumbURL can both point towards a single PNG file. (When the gallery is displayed, Juicebox will dynamically resize the image for use as a thumbnail.)

I hope this helps to explain what you are seeing and how to hopefully work around the problems.

Here are a few things you can try:

(1) If the problem happens only on mobile devices, then it could be due to viewing the gallery over a 3G/4G connection rather than wi-fi. Please see this FAQ for more information and a solution:
Why can't I view my gallery on a 3G mobile connection?

(2) I notice that your gallery currently uses SimpleViewer-Pro v2.1.3. Please try upgrading your gallery to the current version (v2.3.2) as many bugs have been fixed since v2.1.3 and upgrading might fix your problem without any further action. Please see the Version History for a list of changes between versions. Full instructions for upgrading existing galleries can be found on the Upgrading SimpleViewer-Pro support page. To upgrade your gallery, all you need to do is replace your gallery's existing 'svcore' folder with the 'svcore' folder from the SimpleViewer-Pro v2.3.2 zip package ('simpleviewer_pro_2.3.2/web/svcore').

(3) Try validating your web page using the online W3C Markup Validation Service and then fixing the HTML errors reported. (For example, your web page currently has two opening <html> tags.) Once the code on your web page validates correctly, your web page should be rendered with greater predictability and consistency across different browsers.

I hope these suggestions help.

Incidentally, it is not possible to attach screenshots to forum posts here but you can upload screenshots to your web site (or a file sharing service such as Dropbox) and include links to them in your posts.

I think I know what has happened.
The instructions for requesting a discount code say "please email us with your SimpleViewer-Pro transaction id or purchase email address" (with the 'email us' text being a 'mailto' link).
However, it sounds like you might have filled in the 'Leave a Reply' form. This just leaves a comment on the blog page (and the admin team will not have been notified with your request).

Don't worry, though. I'll help you out.
Please check your email. I have sent you a message.
Thank you.

Do you know if they are in fact still honoring the discount...

Yes. The discount for upgrading to Juicebox-Pro from SimpleViewer-Pro is still available.

... and if so do you know if it would work towards the purchase of Showkase Pro Bundle?

As far as I'm aware, there is no official upgrade path from SimpleViewer-Pro to Showkase-Pro but please wait to see what response you get from the admin team.
If you have not heard back from them in a couple of days, please let me know by posting back here and I'll investigate further for you.

You can make the thumbnails larger with SimpleViewer but only for the Flash Player version of the gallery.

When creating a gallery with svBuilder-Pro, click the 'Change...' button in the 'Image Size' control panel on the 'Images' tab and choose the thumbnail dimensions you'd like to use. Thumbnail images will be generated at the specified dimensions and the thumbWidth and thumbHeight configuration options will be set accordingly in the gallery's XML file. The thumbnails will then be displayed at the specified dimensions in the gallery but only when the gallery is displayed by the Flash Player. If the gallery is displayed by the Mobile Player (in browsers which do not have Adobe Flash Player installed and enabled), then the thumbnails will be displayed at the default dimensions of 75 x 75. The Mobile Player was designed as a fallback mechanism (so that gallery images can be viewed on non-Flash-enabled devices) rather than a fully-featured image viewer within itself and, as such, supports far fewer configuration options than the Flash Player. The Mobile Player Options can be found here.)

Right now the galleries have the tiny thumbnails and once you click on that they change to the larger image.

It sounds like, in order to display your Flickr images, you might have forced your gallery to be displayed by the Mobile Player (by deselecting the 'Use Flash' checkbox in svBuilder-Pro's 'Customize -> Embed Options' section). If this is the case, then, unfortunately, it is not possible to change the size of the thumbnails.

Perhaps the best solution would be to switch to our HTML 5 image viewer, Juicebox and, as a SimpleViewer-Pro user, you are eligible for a 30% discount off the cost of Juicebox-Pro. Please see this blog entry for details.
Juicebox-Pro supports Flickr, has many more configuration options than the Mobile Player within SimpleViewer (such as the ability to change the thumbnail dimensions) and does not use Adobe Flash Player at all.
It is also possible to convert a SimpleViewer gallery to a Juicebox gallery by following the Converting a SimpleViewer Gallery instructions.

I hope this helps to clarify things.

It gives an error Flickr User Not Found.

Unfortunately, Flickr made a change (back in September 2016) which has resulted in all Flash-based applications (not just SimpleViewer) being unable to display Flickr images.
Please see this forum post and this blog entry for further details.

If you are still seeing your gallery images in certain browsers, then this suggests that Adobe Flash Player is not installed and enabled in these browsers and that your gallery is being displayed by the Mobile Player (HTML version). Please see these FAQs.
When I view my gallery I see a grid of thumbnails, not the layout I specified. Why?
The mobile player layout does not match the Flash player layout. Why not?

If you like, you could force your galleries to always be displayed by the Mobile Player (so that your gallery images can be seen in all browsers) by changing the useFlash Embed Code Parameter from 'true' to 'false'.
Change:

simpleviewer.load('sv-container', '100%', '100%', '222222', true);

... to:

simpleviewer.load('sv-container', '100%', '100%', '222222', false);

I hope my notes and links above help to explain what you are seeing.

Could you also please advise on how to make the box bigger to display a full page of the photos on the Gallery menu? It shows like a small box and can hardly see the pictures.

It looks like your problem might be that you have set your gallery's height to be 100%.
When using a percentage height, it is necessary to ensure that all your gallery's parent containers have heights specified via CSS (otherwise SimpleViewer may not be able to determine what it's actual height should be a percentage of).
Please also see the note regarding 'Using Percentage Heights' in the Embedding into a HTML Page support section.
Perhaps the easiest solution would be to just give your gallery a fixed height (such as 600px).
Try changing:

simpleviewer.load('sv-container', '100%', '100%', '222222', false);

... to:

simpleviewer.load('sv-container', '100%', '600px', '222222', false);

It sounds like you might be running into the problem whereby you are unable to view Flash galleries locally due to a security restriction change in Adobe Flash Player v23.
Please see this forum post for more information and a solution (add your gallery folder to the list of trusted locations in your Flash Player Settings Manager).

To avoid having to add multiple different gallery folders to the list of trusted locations, it might be easier to just add your entire hard drive to the list (so that all Flash galleries on your hard drive can be viewed locally).

Please try the following:

(1) Open this web page in your browser: https://www.macromedia.com/support/docu … ger04.html
(2) Click the down arrow next to 'Edit locations...' (note that the settings panel shown in the web page is an active control panel rather than just an image)
(3) In the drop-down menu, select 'Add location...'
(4) In the 'Trust this location:' input box, type in C:\ (change the drive letter as appropriate if your computer's hard drive is not labelled as the C:\ drive)
(5) Click the 'Confirm' button

As you have discovered, this applies only to viewing galleries locally (from your computer's hard drive).
There is no such problem once the galleries have been uploaded to a web server.

Was able to upgrade Lightroom,

I hope you mean that you have upgraded the SimpleViewer web engine rather than Lightroom itself. If you have upgraded Lightroom to Lightroom CC2015/Lightroom 6, then you will no longer be able to create Flash galleries (see my post above for details).

...and got this:

file:///Users/nancygracehorton/WEB2012/madwomen1/madwomen1.html

That's a local file on your own computer to which I have no access so, unfortunately, I can't see what you are referring to. Hopefully it's a step in the right direction, though.

Yikes, I sent Felix an email, any chance you can get me the upgrade link please?

I found your SimpleViewer-Pro transaction details and sent you a new link.

I did get a link to upgrade, and now I have deleted my old version, deleted my trash, and now this one will not work, now I do not even have an sv program.

It might help if you could describe to me what the problem is: whether you are having trouble installing svBuilder-Pro or running the application (and what, if any, error messages you encounter along the way). Please let me know in case the extra information helps me to troubleshoot your problem.
In the meantime, try completely uninstalling your current svBuilder-Pro (presumably v2.3.0) before installing the latest version (v2.3.2). This should hopefully solve whatever problem you are having.

Judging by the 'file:///Users/' path you posted, you're using a Mac, so please try the following:

(1) Delete the 'svBuilder-Pro' file from the Applications folder and empty your Trash.
(2) Also, please manually delete the following folder from your computer (if it still exists): /Users/nancygracehorton/Library/Application Support/Adobe/AIR/ELS/svBuilder-Pro
(3) I would also recommend that you search your hard drive for the term 'svBuilder-Pro' and delete whatever is returned in the search results relating to the application (to ensure that nothing remains from the previous installation).
(4) Now install svBuilder-Pro v2.3.2 following the instructions here.

If you have any further problems installing svBuilder-Pro, there are installation troubleshooting tips here.

... now I do not even have an sv program.

Although you are currently facing problems with svBuilder-Pro, are you no longer able to create galleries with Lightroom (using TTG SimpleViewer as I suggested earlier)?

Any chance you can help me further, I've been working on this for two days and now I do not even have the program any longer!

I'm doing my best to help you out but please be aware that 'm not always on hand to respond to support queries immediately. Even if I'm unable to give you an instant reply, let me reassure that that I will reply so whatever problems you are facing, please persevere until I'm able to get back to you.
Thank you.

I am using Lightroom...

I think this is the root of the problem.
I seem to remember that, many years ago, Lightroom came bundled with a web engine which created SimpleViewer-Standard v1.8.5 galleries.
It sounds like you might be using this to create your galleries.

SimpleViewer v1.8.5 is over 9 years old now (released in April 2008) and SimpleViewer was rewritten from the ground up for v2 back in 2009.
v1 and v2 galleries are essentially incompatible with each other. It is not possible to embed a v1 gallery with v2 embedding code or vice versa.

SimpleViewer v1 was essentially just a single SWF file embedded directly into a web page using SWFObject.
SimpleViewer v2 (since v2.1.0) supports Universal Playback (the ability to display gallery images in browsers which do not support Adobe Flash Player) which requires a collection of resource files and, consequently, different embedding code. Also, v1 and v2 galleries also have different formats for their respective XML configuration files.

It looks like you are currently trying to embed a v1.8.5 gallery ('madwomen1') using v2 embedding code and this simply won't work.

Also, Lightroom itself has not been able to create Flash galleries of any kind for over 2 years now. Adobe removed Flash gallery support from Lightroom CC2015/Lightroom 6. Please see the note at the top of this Adobe support page.

I would strongly recommend that you create SimpleViewer-Pro v2.3.2 galleries using svBuilder-Pro v2.3.2 (instead of using the outdated SimpleViewer web engine for Lightroom). Please see the Upgrading SimpleViewer-Pro support page for details on how to download the most recent version (v2.3.2).
This should greatly simplify things and your galleries will benefit from having the Mobile Player for non-Flash-enabled devices.

Alternatively, if you are using a version of Lightroom prior to Lightroom CC2015/Lightroom 6 which still supports the creation of Flash galleries, then you can use TTG SimpleViewer to create SimpleViewer v2.3.0 galleries. This is an updated SimpleViewer web engine for Lightroom (no longer supported but more recent than the version that was previously bundled with Lightroom) which creates SimpleViewer v2.3.0 galleries. It can be downloaded from this web page (check the 'Download' section for the direct download link). Instructions for upgrading the web engine from SimpleViewer-Standard (which it comes bundled with) to SimpleViewer-Pro can be found here.

Once you have created a gallery with svBuilder-Pro (or TTG SimpleViewer), all you need to do to embed it in a web page is upload the complete gallery folder (not just the contents) to your web server and paste the baseURL embedding code into your web page where you want the gallery to be displayed. It does not matter where on your web server you upload your gallery folder to as long as the two paths in the embedding code (the path to the 'simpleviewer.js' file and the baseURL itself, pointing towards the gallery folder) are correct.
For convenience, I would recommend that you upload all your gallery folders to your root directory (just make sure that each gallery folder has a unique name).
For reference, the baseURL method of embedding is documented here.

To summarize:
(1) Create your gallery with svBuilder-Pro v2.3.2 or TTG SimpleViewer (as long as your version of Lightroom still supports Flash galleries).
(2) Upload the complete gallery folder (not just the contents) to your root directory.
(3) Embed the gallery into a web page using the following embedding code (changing the gallery folder name, gallery dimensions, and background color if necessary).

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/gallery_folder_name/svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var flashvars = {};
    flashvars.baseURL = "/gallery_folder_name/";
    simpleviewer.ready(function () {
        simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "900", "600", "FFFFFF", true, flashvars);
    });
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

I hope this helps to clarify things.

It also makes the thumbnails all appear on one page, instead of as thumbnails on the side/left and larger image on right.

When I view your '/madwomen1/madwomen1.html' gallery in my own browser, I see the thumbnails to the left of the main image.
If you are seeing a grid of thumbnails, then there is likely a problem viewing Flash content in your browser and your gallery is being displayed by the Mobile Player. Please see this FAQ:
When I view my gallery I see a grid of thumbnails, not the layout I specified. Why?

Please also see this forum post for more information on the subject.

You seem to have uploaded a complete SimpleViewer v2.3.0 gallery folder ('Mad_Women') to the root directory of your website so, if this is the gallery that you are trying to embed in your web page, you can just use a baseURL in your gallery's embedding code to point towards the gallery folder.
Please see the baseURL documentation here.

Use the following embedding code:

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/Mad_Women/svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var flashvars = {};
    flashvars.baseURL = "/Mad_Women/";
    simpleviewer.ready(function () {
        simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "900", "600", "FFFFFF", true, flashvars);
    });
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

The leading slashes in the paths above denote your root directory so you can use this embedding code (to embed your 'Mad_Women' gallery) in any page throughout your web site without modification.

You'll not be able to embed your 'madwomen1' gallery like this, though, as it is a SimpleViewer v1.8.5 gallery which cannot be embedded using SimpleViewer v2 embedding code. (v1 and v2 galleries use different formats for their XML files: SimpleViewer v2 was written from the ground up rather than just being a progression of SimpleViewer v1.)
Convert (or recreate if you have to) the gallery with svBuilder-Pro, upload the complete gallery folder (not just the contents) to your web server and use the baseURL method of embedding.

Incidentally, I notice that your 'Mad_Women' gallery is a SimpleViewer-Pro v2.3.0 gallery.
As you are in the process of upgrading your galleries, you might like to use the most recent version (v2.3.2).
Instructions for downloading the current version can be found on the Upgrading SimpleViewer-Pro support page.
