I would love to write a review/article on Simpleviewer Pro because I love it so much and was wondering do you have a referral/commission program so that I can monetize my article and send people to you?

Thank you very much Mike, you have been most helpful.

Hopefully this post will help other Joomla N00Bs out there!

Hi Mike,

Upon further investigation, it appears as though Joomla 1.5 is adding an extra / into the code. I had a good 2 hour hunt with Google but nothing helpful evolved. It appears as though we can't change the extra /.

In Joomla, my html embed code looks just fine, even after saving - but it is producing the extra / on the final page.

Is there any other way we can write the embed code to reference the gallery.xml - eg an absolute path or something?

Cheers,

Suz

Hi again Mike,

Just updated my code so it's more like this in the gallery.xml:

<image imageURL="svgallery/images/a_brochures.jpg" thumbURL="svgallery/thumbs/a_brochures.jpg" linkURL="" linkTarget="_parent" ><caption/>
</image>
  <image imageURL="svgallery/images/divine.jpg" thumbURL="svgallery/thumbs/divine.jpg" linkURL="" linkTarget="" ><caption/>
</image>
  <image imageURL="svgallery/images/remax.jpg" thumbURL="svgallery/thumbs/remax.jpg" linkURL="" linkTarget="" ><caption/>
</image>

Now it all appears OK, however the images that are not linked to URLS are opening up in a new window, instead of just going to the next image.

Also my gallery.xml in the browser looks a bit messy at: http://www.inkfluence.com.au/svgallery/gallery.xml

Much appreciate your help this far. Is there anything else we can do to get it working?

Hi Mike,

I updated all the gallery xml items as requested. Eg:

<image imageURL="svgallery/images/boxad.jpg" thumbURL="svgallery/thumbs/boxad.jpg" linkURL="" linkTarget="" >
<image imageURL="svgallery/images/photo1.jpg" thumbURL="svgallery/thumbs/photo1.jpg" linkURL="" linkTarget="" >
<image imageURL="svgallery/images/yarragon.jpg" thumbURL="svgallery/thumbs/yarragon.jpg" linkURL="" linkTarget="" >

I couldn't see anywhere to remove the / before /svgallery in my embed code, which is:

<object width="582" height="403" data="svgallery/simpleviewer.swf?galleryURL=svgallery/gallery.xml">
        <param name="movie" value="svgallery/simpleviewer.swf?galleryURL=svgallery/gallery.xml"></param>
        <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
        <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
        <param name="bgcolor" value="000000"></param>
</object>

Now, the live gallery is showing "Cannot Parse Gallery xml"

Surely we must be on our way to the final outcome!

Any ideas?

Hi Mike,

I've done both of those things and now it comes up with a blank box, see URL:

http://www.inkfluence.com.au/index.php? … ;Itemid=57

bit of a head scratcher....

I have done that, now I get "Gallery xml not found" at:

http://www.inkfluence.com.au/index.php? … ;Itemid=57

I tried putting in more specific absolute paths etc, which made no difference........

I double checked html code was not changed in Joomla (by selecting "No Editor" in Global Config)

So the code you gave me is exactly what is in that page at present:

<object width="582" height="403" data="/svgallery/simpleviewer.swf?galleryURL=gallery.xml">
        <param name="movie" value="/svgallery/simpleviewer.swf?galleryURL=gallery.xml"></param>
        <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
        <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
        <param name="baseURL" value="svgallery/"></param>
    <param name="bgcolor" value="000000"></param>
</object>

Any more ideas?

I still think that there is a problem with Joomla regarding defaulting to the next image.

Maybe there is a way to specify going to the next image in the gallery.xml links for all those main images that are supposed to be defaulting to the next image? Can you put it in manually?

There is no greyspot.jpg, that was just a sample. But you'll notice that the websites link as per instructed but the other graphics are going to a Not Found page.

Cheers,

Hi, love Simpleviewer Pro to bits and it's making a huge difference on my websites!

However, I set ImageClick to OPEN_URL and while the hyperlinks from the main images work, the main images without links just open a new page with "The requested URL /images/divine.jpg was not found on this server.".

This says to me that the unlinked images are not defaulting to imageURL. Any idea on what I am missing?

Here's a sample bit of code:

-----------------------------------

<simpleviewergallery title=""
    imageClickMode="OPEN_URL"

>
 
<image>
    <filename>greyspot.jpg</filename>
    <caption/>
  </image>
      <image imageURL="images/s_web.jpg" thumbURL="thumbs/s_web.jpg" linkURL="http://www.urlhere.com" linkTarget="_blank">
<caption/>
</image>

-----------------------------------

I want greyspot.jpg when clicked, not to show anything but the next image.

Please help!
