I have done something similar to what you want to do. I did mine in php.

OK so we have a structure kinda like this:

html(d)
-galleries(d)
--galleryone (d)
---index.php (f)
---gallery.xml(f)
---images     (d)
---thumbs     (d)
--gallerytwo (d)
---index.php (f)
---gallery.xml(f)
---images     (d)
---thumbs     (d)
--gallery...n (d)
---index.php (f)
---gallery.xml(f)
---images     (d)
---thumbs     (d)
--swfobject.js(f)
--viewer-code.php(f)
--viewer.swf(f)
--index.php(f)

That's pretty much what I have done, minus the php (I think). I've not worked with php... ever, haha. Thats a pretty nice concept you've got there, and the central editing sounds like a great idea. Maybe I'll look back at this sometime when I've done a bit of playing with php.

The main difference with mine I guess is the fact that I used _blanks to separate the galleries, but I think it turned out pretty well.

Thanks

This is the site im working on:

www.visualcomm.com/site

If you click on Healthcare it has a working example of what I'm trying to accomplish.

I have a site that will have multiple gallery sections, each being a different type of job. The plan is for each grouping of jobs to open in a _blank window which will then list links to galleries of individual jobs. Each time the user clicks a gallery, a SV instance should open in another _blank.

Is there any way I can have each gallery access the same .swf (because it will be the same setup for each gallery) so that I don't have to upload tons of .swfs?

So far I have it set up similar to what is posted in FAQ #16 which I think will work (its hard to test because all the images have not been chosen yet), but if someone has an idea of how to set this up more efficiently I am open to suggestions.

In the FAQs it says that simpleviewer can load not only jpegs, but .swfs as well. So based on that I would assume you could do that. Though if you loaded 50-75 other swfs, it might slow down simpleviewer significantly . I have a sort of similar situation (though not as high-volume) and I think I am just going to have an html page with thumbs to separate instances of simpleviewer to break it up a little more.

one way to do it would be to add a hyperlink to the caption. if you are ok with doing that check out number 13 of the FAQs

hey 1976, great line of code there, thanks for that. in the imageArea file is there a place to add text to the bottom of the image that would say "click for full size" or something like that?

<edit> i also just noticed that doing that disables the back and forward buttons on the image itself, is there a simple way around that?

thanks

also make sure your caption areas are clearly defined. if you have missed part of a caption (or other) tag it can cut everything else off. say you were writing the caption line

<caption>here is the caption for this photo/caption>

and you left out that < it will cut everything else off.
