Topic: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

hey,

i've tried a custom setup for a photogallery using the svbuilder-pro aplication.
as i am building a website using wix, i follow tha guidelines telling to use google drive to upload the customised gallery and build an ifram embed code with the url to that google drive folder.

as a result i get a non-customised gallery view.
my customisation has not been taken into account.
als in the preview, just after saving the gallery (and getting directed to a html preview) none of my custom adaptations are shown.
only the standard preset...

thanks,
ptr

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

It sounds like your gallery may be using a default XML file rather than your customized version.
Please check your gallery's XML file to make sure that it contains the configuration options that you expect to see in your gallery.

If you continue to experience difficulties, then please post the URL to your gallery so that I can take a look at the problem for myself and hopefully help further. Thank you.

hi steven,
thanks for the reply.

this is the url to the gallery i've just set up:
file:///Users/pietermichiels/Google%20Drive/persoonlijk/event/index.html

copy of the xml file content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<simpleviewergallery
    useFlickr="true"
    flickrUserName="ptr.pictures"
    flickrTags="event"
    thumbPosition="BOTTOM"
    thumbRows="1"

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

The link you posted is to a local file on your own computer to which I have no access.
I need to see the version on the web server. If you are hosting your gallery on Google Drive, then the link will look something like this:
https://googledrive.com/host/0BxXHNif2h4NRcmxHOW9lUDBWWTQ/index.html

I need to check that the XML file on the web server that the gallery uses actually includes the configuration options you posted.
I expect that either the XML file on the web server does not contain these configuration options or the gallery is using a diffferent XML file but I need to see the gallery for myself to check.

Open your gallery from Google Drive (rather than the Google Drive folder on your desktop) in a browser and copy and paste the link from your browser's address bar.
Instructions on how to find the correct URL can be found in Steps #12 onwards in the Embedding in a Web Template Site instructions.

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

allright,
thanks

i see your point.
this is the readable url: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ … Gtpa2xNc1k

pasted thsi again in the wix code but still get standard layout.

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

Thank you. I can find your gallery from information in the link you posted.

If I view your gallery using the following URL, I see the gallery using the custom configuration options in the 'gallery.xml' file (not the default settings).
https://c023e46df216f3768dfcd57f8d603d83115b30e5.googledrive.com/secure/AH8CU7GCP8SnXOolvIZpZwpBq5taY3QeKaLQzsZiR6GNjKIIwWi-orPPn9h1QdJeBvyIMdvwb_3HTnTTjAuUG7pUmXWzuowTW4GJFFiUex6V1WLAL7VdEfg-B3zUtzoQTerth1wtNsCl09u9Z3r4TO6X8D8ekgIdfI6xZ3zrWyPZskZ61XYeQTjwgsqNtSr3rXDGfBPsfx_qfP2Xho10X7YX5N2Iql7e5yyGqHoMg271-NY9QBV94_n2VbfAK2p2wkc3jr0I7s3k_ZHY3KlwkNHQ6eXqncAgn_63WDDmPM6D1ETwDfqo_1Li5302bogEqYKkB1-6HqrF7_5awpTKIa7L0C03jkS9wC_TeOaxAWWcRUQ4iq0zGK48K4QylHwGjJBQiDnSjebbBk2KRCGcfn-VEN9e905qfA-vg0tYm7Afam4TqtO6qmBXJ-NV8xgWZT3e2YOvTZ7sMTlsL4klR1CLCzTr_3JLG3t0NIUsEzBNXadxUWMM-KsemUXkQzzKaXXEY0Cd329UerLJVO2PKZqXSuaZ_r209KB57kkgh3wqcjgXHfrmX8Pm3EvQYINJPn52IC9GW-rU/host/0BzfovZCUrZseaEI1TGtpa2xNc1k/index.html

Alternatively, I can use the following URL to view your gallery but I need to be logged into a Google account in order to do so:
https://googledrive.com/host/0BzfovZCUrZseaEI1TGtpa2xNc1k/index.html

Please make sure that your Google Drive files are public and not private or restricted.

If you are loading your gallery into an iframe, try using the long URL above as the 'src' attribute for your iframe.

If you still see only default configuration options being used, try clearing your browser's cache before reloading your gallery.

Also, please make sure that you have Adobe Flash Player installed and enabled in your browser.
You can check by visiting this web page: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
Please see this FAQ for details:
When I view my gallery I see a grid of thumbnails, not the layout I specified. Why?

If you continue to experience difficulties, please let me know what you are seeing and what you expect to see.
Thank you.

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

hi steven,

thanks for the answer.

the long url you've sent me, shows an error.
how did you get to this long url version?

i've checked that the google folders are open for anyone to view.
the flash player installed is also the most recent one.
the cache memroy has been cleared

i've just made a new (after clearing cache & restarting computer) setup for the gallery.
google drive url:  https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ … Xl5ZzVLMXc

when i paste this into the iframe code i get the same result as before.
hereunder i copy also the code under the save section of the simpleviewer application:

i tried out the freeware version of simpleviewer before upgrading to the pro version.
maybe there something went wrong?

thanks!
best

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

the long url you've sent me, shows an error.

It looks like it might have just been a temporary URL.

how did you get to this long url version?

I just entered the short URL (from my post above) into a browser and Google redirected to the long URL (I just copied and pasted the URL from the browser's address bar).
Try the short URL (below). It seems to be working OK.
https://googledrive.com/host/0BzfovZCUrZseaEI1TGtpa2xNc1k/index.html

i've just made a new (after clearing cache & restarting computer) setup for the gallery.
google drive url:  https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ … Xl5ZzVLMXc

Your URL is not built up correctly as noted in the Embedding in a Web Template Site instructions.
It should start with https://googledrive.com/host/ and end with index.html.
Try the following for your new gallery:
https://googledrive.com/host/0BzfovZCUrZseQy13VXl5ZzVLMXc/index.html

Here is a screenshot of what I see (a customized, non-default gallery).
Both short URLs seem to be working fine, showing galleries with the same customized layout.

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

hi steven,

the link i referred to was to the galleryfolder.

this is the iframe i use to embed in the website.
once embedded it still shows a standard layout though...
<iframe src="https://googledrive.com/host/0BzfovZCUrZseQy13VXl5ZzVLMXc/index.html" width="800" height="600" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

the link without the iframe code shows indeed the customised layout.

what could be the further issue?

thanks
pieter

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

It sounds like either you are loading a different web page (a different gallery with different configuration options) into your iframe or your browser does not have Adobe Flash Player installed and enabled.
A gallery's configuration options cannot change when loaded into an iframe.

Please post the URL to the web page which contains your iframe (the web page into which you are embedding your gallery) so that I can see the problem for myself.
Also, please upload a screenshot somewhere showing what you see when you load this web page into a browser yourself.

In the meantime, try completely clearing your browser's cache and check that you have Adobe Flash Player installed and enabled before reloading your web page.
Also, you might like to try viewing your web page in a different browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) to see if this makes a difference.

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

hi steven

ok, it shows as customised in publish mode.
it seems that if you use the code in the wix preview mode, you get the non-customised view.

many thanks for your support

Re: custom result in svbuilder not the same as in saved gallery? [SOLVED]

I'm glad your gallery is displaying the correct configuration options when published.
Thank you for letting me know.
