Wow - wasn't expecting a reply to soon on a weekenc - thank you so much!!
Looks like my problem is the pathway to where I have saved the gallery files.
I have a galleries folder, and then a subfolder for the homepage gallery entitled homepage.
So the file path looks like this:
Within the homepage folder are the images, svcore, & thumbs folders for the gallery, as well as gallery.xml and index.html
The file path to my page that includes the gallery looks like this: site>index_feb2013.html
Is there a way to edit the code in my index_feb2013.html file so that the gallery folder can be discovered? On another site in the past, I used iframes to do this because that site had multiple Simpleviewer slideshows. But I noticed that for the best mobile functionality, this method is not recommended.
I expect this site to grow to include additional sideshows, so it seems to make sense to have a galleries folder to hold them....
