Re: It's not IE it's me but it works in firefox!

That's odd, I definitely didn't remove it. Glad it's gone though :)

I've changed the bit as you posted before this as well and it's still not working in explorer. Do you know what else it could be?

Re: It's not IE it's me but it works in firefox!

It may be the <center> tags, a <center> is opened on line 48, opened on 97 and one is closed on line 116. So you need to close a center tag somewhere.


Actually looking back at what I had you do before, I was wrong about the last bit wasn't paying close enough attention to what the w3c validator was suggesting, that's what I get for trusting robots... sorry about that.

this was right.

Re: It's not IE it's me but it works in firefox!

I think I've found the issue, I've removed this line I added before:

fo.addParam("wmode", "transparent");

which makes the background transparent.

It seems to work for now :)  Thanks for your time and effort Mike!

I might be back later when I'm stuck again :D

Re: It's not IE it's me but it works in firefox!

Ok, my turn.

I read through this thread hoping to find the answer as to why Simpleviewer wasn't working for me in IE.  I have double checked the version I am using, and I did change the link to the swfobjects to the link that was posted above on one of my pages.

Here's my site:
http://www.shutterbugs-photography.net/ … index.html

The only page so far that I changed the link to the swfobjects is:
http://www.shutterbugs-photography.net/ … iors2.html

After I changed the link I got the message about downloading flash, which wasn't showing up before, so I thought, well cool. Maybe I just need to update my flash in IE and all will be well... the message is still there.  And worse yet, the message is now showing in Firefox as well for that page, where it was working before.  However in FF, the pages that I didn't change the swfobjects to the link that was posted, my galleries work fine.

Also, after I uploaded the site to my server, on the pages with simpleviewer on them my links (at the top of the page, just above the color) are hovering green where they should stay white. They work beautifully remotely on every page, and after I upload, they work fine on the pages that don't have simpleviewer, but as soon as I upload, the green appears on the simpleviewer pages.  I've used the CSS in the past for my links and never had problems until now, so I can only assume that it has something to do with simpleviewer.

Also I just checked the second link I posted above where I changed the link to the swfobjects, and the links are showing just as they should, however I cannot click them...They are drop down menus, but the white font is also a link, and the links on the menus work, but the actual white fonted links do not work.

I'd appreciate any other ideas as to how to fix both problems.  I really love the way my site looks with simple viewer on it.. it gives the look of a flash website without having to pay an arm and a leg to have someone design one for me, and I want to use it.

Thanks,

Rachel

Re: It's not IE it's me but it works in firefox!

There are several different issues here, but none of them appear to be caused by simpleviewer.

the green is from A:hover { color: #7CB619 } in http://www.shutterbugs-photography.net/ … ghtbox.css

The only page so far that I changed the link to the swfobjects is:
http://www.shutterbugs-photography.net/ … iors2.html

in the page listed above you find this which the link does not work.
<script src="http://testgallery.110mb.com/swfobject/swfobject.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

I would take a look at the page errors.

Re: It's not IE it's me but it works in firefox!

the lightbox thing is weird... it wasn't even in that directory.. hhmm I forgot I had the code in there, so I'll have to go take it out.

I also realized after I posted that I had forgotten to validate.

The link
<script src="http://testgallery.110mb.com/swfobject/swfobject.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

is what I copied from a post above. I'm going to try to use what was originally there, fix the errors then we'll see where I'm at. Thanks for the help so far.

Re: It's not IE it's me but it works in firefox!

Ok.. I'm working on fixing my pages.  So far it is all working.

I do have a question though not related to the simple viewer and wonder if anyone can help while I'm here.  I have styled the rest of my pages after the colored background on simpleviewer. I love how simpleviewer's edges go all the way off the page. Is there a way to do this in HTML/CSS for my other pages? I've tried changing the margin widths in my css file and that didn't help. I have them set at 0 right now just because I got tired of messing with it.

If anyone could help with this I'd appreciate it. If not that's fine too as I realize this isn't a web design forum.
