well, can you guys tell me if it is loading for you? is this just a problem i'm having?

Having a hard time with figuring out what is going on here.


Sometimes the gallery loads and sometimes it doesn't. Can't figure out what is causing this.

Can anyone help? I can email the fla if it helps.


Hello to all and sundry!

I'm proud to present the latest iteration in the the uboodu line of websites.


Thanks for looking,


it seems that even though i'm telling it to load gallery1.xml, it is defaulting to gallery.xml

i've copied gallery1.xml to gallery.xml and will just have to duplicate it when i make updates.

this is an irritating solution, but at least it works.



apparently this is the correct way to load the xml:

// preload xml

var my_xml = new XML();
my_xml.ignoreWhite = true;
my_xml.onLoad = function(success){
    if (success){

i still have the same problem though :(

Hi all,

Having a problem that I can't seem to resolve on my own.


The first time the page loads, the XML file doesn't seem to load and so the gallery doesn't. If I refresh the page, all is well.

Anyone have any experience with this problem? I'm using the code from the multiple galleries example and loading it all not on the first frame because I have a preloader. I think the problem lies in there. I created a function to just load the xml on the first frame, but that doesn't seem to do the trick either.

// preload xml

function preloadXML(){


I'd be eternally grateful for any help,

I had this problem yesterday.

I had resized the loader movie which the gallery is loaded into. Set it back to the original size and your movie will load sharply again.

it may be that i'm not loading the xml at the proper time.

it also occurs to me that since i've added some embedded fonts and because this makes the viewer.swf heavier maybe it isn't loading the first xml in time.

is that possible?


thanks for the reply.

it's one of those irritating bugs that doesn't always happen and is hard to reproduce. it depends on the user's connection speed.

if the connection is fast enough, the xml gets loaded and there is no problem.

if not, it borks.

sorry about the bunged up link. the forum won't let me post until i've been here five days. :) lame.

hi guys,

trying to get this to work but can't seem to find a solution.

uboodu DOT com/fromental/build/index.html

the first time the page loads, the viewer tells me it can't find the gallery. if you refresh the page it works because the xml file is now in the cache.

what am i not doing?

this is exactly what i am looking for.. was this ever resolved?

Is it possible to customize the way that the selected and unselected thumbnails look?

I'd like to be able to have the selected thumbnail normal and all others, say, darkened.

I do not want to use the borders as my design has rounded corners.
