Thank you.  I have given up having inside the Div's I created.  But I can see it and it looks good. 

Thank you for your help.

Does that mean if I've made my viewer too large for the area, it just won't show up?

If so, I'll give that a try.

Thank you for replying.

I've been trying this for a while now, and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

I've created my gallery and created a new folder within my site called svgallery,  that contains all the files from the simple viewer (ie the gallery.xml file, the swf etc)  I then went to the svbuilder and found the gallery within that folder and changed a few parameters and got the embed code.  I created a new file called gallery.html and saved it inside the svgallery folder.

I then pasted the code into the head and body, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong as I cannot see the gallery.  Is it possible that you can't do this within a Dreamweaver template page?

I'll include my code and if anyone can tell me what I'm doing wrong, I'd be so grateful!

But I've never used this in that folder before.  I tested it out weeks ago, but in an entirely different folder.  And then then the other day I created a brand new simple viewer for this client after purchasing the product. 

That is why I can't understand why I can't get it to work.  Yes it has been on my computer, but not that folder.

Anything else I could try?

Perhaps I'm confused.  I can build a simpleview gallery in Photoshop, but my issue is when I try to alter it in order to fit it into a webpage that I already have created, I get the message with the svBuilder program that "Embedding in Flash requires Simple View Pro" which I have bought.

I deleted the swf file as you recommended (and I've done this dozens of times) and I can see the program in the scripts of Photoshop, but my issue is with svBuilder.

When I go into svBuilder, am I supposed to go to the folder that I created with simpleview (I called it Gallery)?

I've wasted hours on this, and it shouldn't be this hard.  If the issue is that it thinks I don't have the pro version, wouldn't it be easier on your clients to have a section where you can put your serial number and be done with it?

Any help would be gratefully received as I have a client who is certain only this type of viewer will do, and I wish I'd never shown it to her.


I'm having the same problem.  I have both CS3 and CS5 (I only recently bought CS5, so I kept the other while I learn).  Perhaps that is causing me the problem, but I am getting that message about Pro too, even though I have copied over the swf file a few times.

I did the instructions for CS3, but that hasn't helped me at all.

Any other suggestions?
