You have set thumbPosition="TOP" but you have also set lockTopStack="FALSE" so the Top Stack (containing the thumbnails) will move and resize to match to the current image size. Instead, set lockTopStack="TRUE".
A description of the lockTopStack option can be found in the General section of the 'SimpleViewer-Pro Config Options' page.
The SimpleViewer-Pro Layout Guide has more information about locking stacks.

Thanks! Good job.

Try rolling over the thumbnails from left to right. When you get to A the thumbnails jump down then up when you rollout then down again at B. If you rollover the two tree images between A and B the stage goes crazy.  It appears Simpleviewer is aligning the thumbnails to the top of the image so when you get to the smaller image size at A everything moves. I am unclear why everything jiggles left and right when you hover over an image between A and B.  Do I need to "float" something or layout the stage differently or resize images or ?

Thanks

Actually, one explanation for the jiggle jump could be that the two tree images are different widths and since Simpleviewer is repositioning the thumbnails along with the change in images sizes it is also repositioning the hover buttons too so that it thinks the mouse is moving back and forth between the two images when in fact it is stationary. How do I restructure this gallery?

You need to change the settings file first. Nothing will show until you save the images again. So you just need to go to the images screen and click on update. This should save your new linkTarget to each image entry in the gallery xml file. You can browse to the xml file to check.

That totally worked! Thank you very much.

Thanks for your reply Jack. Sorry, don't see where the linkTarget can be set from the Images screen.

I'm using svManager to build my galleries and want the image URL click to open the new window on top of the main window, i.e. target='_self', but cannot find where to set this. I tried modifying the definition for linkTarget default in settings.php and/or setting.ini but it did not work (is this a related problem?).

The linkTarget is set individually for each image in the gallery's XML file.
A sample image entry should look something like this:

<image imageURL="images/image1.jpg" thumbURL="thumbs/thumbs1.jpg" linkURL="http://www.example.com/" linkTarget="_self" >
    <caption><![CDATA[Caption Text Goes Here]]></caption>    
</image>

If creating your gallery with svBuilder-Pro, the linkTarget for each image can be set on the 'Images' tab.
See the '_blank' entries in the screenshot in the Interface Guide of the 'svBuilder-Pro User Guide'. You can change these to '_self' via the drop-down options.


Can it be done in svManager?

This is probably one of those dumb questions. I've searched everywhere, how to you set the linkTarget?  I would like to OPENURL on top of the page showing the gallery.  It's probably right in front of me....

Thank you, Jack, for responding. I reinstalled SV2 Pro and all is back to working normally now.
Regards and thanks for the leads on getting more detail should the issue return.

I'm getting these two red error messages when i edit the images in an image gallery:

Notice: Undefined index: cap
Notice: Undefined index: url

It occurs only after clicking UPDATE at the bottom of the images page in svManager.

Any idea what is causing this?

Thanks

Feature request: changeImageonHover should allow selection of an image, or said another way, linkURL is not useful when changeImageonHover is enabled because you cannot stop on an image and click it.

It would seem that the changeImageonHover option has no use or value if you are unable to select an image and act on it when the option is enabled.  I think this can be easily corrected with a couple of lines of actionscript in the thumbnail button that senses rollover and switches the image unless a thumbnail has been clicked:

on(press){
   changeImageonHover = false;
}

and a new 'perimeter' button surrounding the thumbnail array to sense mouse movement outside the thumbnails and turn changeImageonHover back on if necessary:

on(rollover){
  changeImageonHover = true;
}

Now you can rollover the thumbnails until you see the image you want, click on the thumbnail to select it, and then move to the image to click it and link to your linkURL.

No. There is no way to toggle the value of the changeImageOnHover option once a gallery has been loaded.

What do you think?

Got it to work!

Excellent! Thank you for posting back to let me know.

Replaced the svcore folder in both the sv2master and the g1 gallery and bingo: images change on rollover!

The 'svcore' folder should be replaced in the 'sv2master' folder in order for all future galleries created with svManager to be SimpleViewer-Pro galleries. However, existing galleries, such as 'g1', will still need to be upgraded separately (as they were previously created when svManager had only the SimpleViewer-Standard 'svcore' folder in the 'sv2master' folder).


I have changeonHover working well now and would like to know how you deactivate if if you roll over an image you would like to stay on.  When I find the desired image I get further image changes as I try to roll out of the thumbnails.  Any way to 'lock in an image selected by the changeonHover method?  Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. And it is clear that my galleries created with svmanager are Simpleviewer galleries rather than SimpleViewer Pro because the SimpleViewer badge/link still appears. I can't believe how poorly I wrote the "nothing happens" complaint when I click on View.  What I meant to say is that a gallery is displayed but none of the SimpleViewer Pro parameters take effect. I apologize for the time you spent trying to figure out what I meant. The fact that I see no SimpleViewer Pro features, such as the changeImageonHover I am trying to use, corroborates the above observation. These galleries are not Pro galleries even though I am running latest version of svmanager (1.8) and explicitly replaced the svcore folder and contents when I tried to upgrade to Pro.

Thanks for leading me to the solution!

I purchased Simpleviewer Pro and svmanager but cannot get the pro options to work. I am certain the svcore files were upgraded as per Upgrading to a Pro Viewer but none of these options are working.

The gallery.xml file shows that svmanager is setting the options but when I click View in svmanager nothing happens.  Specifically, I am trying to get the main image to change as you rollover the thumbnails.

Any ideas what is wrong? Thanks!

Thank you for the clarifications.  Best regards

I'm totally confused. How do you post a question in this forum. None of the topic pages have a New Post function.  This was the only place I found one.  My question is: why isn't my linkURL instruction working?  There is no click on the image available.
