I used photo gallery builder to make a new slide show. After I finished the slideshow, its just give me an idea for how to publish it on my website.
But it doesn't work!!!!

Here is the HINT:
How to insert the gallery on your web-page?

When you have published your gallery then you are able to upload it to a website.

1. Open the folder where your gallery was published.

2.Copy the gallery folder with all files located to the server where your webpage is.

You will get approximately this list of files:
/yourWebPage.html – your webpage
/gallery/
/gallery/config.xml
/gallery/gallery.swf
/gallery/js/
/gallery/js/jquery.js
/gallery/js/swfobject.js
/gallery/js/flashgallery.js
/gallery/images/
/gallery/images/1.jpg
/gallery/images/t1.jpg
/gallery/images/2.jpg
/gallery/images/t2.jpg
/gallery/images/3.jpg
/gallery/images/t3.jpg
...
/gallery/images/n.jpg
/gallery/images/tn.jpg
3.Copy this embed code:

4. Paste the copied code to your webpage.

Hi Kami Del,

There is a little bit missing from your post (because the forum is trying to ignore some of the HTML tags included in the code) and that's the embed code under #3.
can you repost this and add some tags before and after the code as shown. (This protects the code from the engine) .
<!--

<code>
{embed code goes here}
</code>

--> Please ignore the <!-- and the --> this is to trick the engine also.

It's a reasonably complex process for this gallery slide show. as you need to upload a number of files into your file manager and change the paths within the code that you have been supplied with.

You need to make a few new new sub-folders within your File Manager.

The first folder would be gallery
and you would uplaod config.xml and gallery.swf into that created subfolder.

Next you will need to create another sub-sub folder within gallery called js and to that upload; jquery.js, swfobject.js, flashgallery.js

Third folder is also a sub-sub folder within gallery called images. to this folder then you would uplaod 1.jpg; t1.jpg; 2.jpg; t2.jpg; 3.jpg; t3.jpg.... n.jpg; tn.jpg

Then we need to see the embed code to see what other requirements there may be. This also presumes that you are subscribed to Yola Silver it won't work as it stands if you have the Yola Free or Yola Bronze.

Aplogies for confusing you.

Can you see where I have added the word resources to many of the lines of these codes?

You can copy and paste this into the place where the original copy is; overwriting the old.


<script type="text/javascript" src="resources/gallery/js/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="resources/gallery/js/swfobject.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="resourcesgallery/js/flashgallery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery.flashgallery('resources/gallery/gallery.swf', 'resources/gallery/config.xml', { width: '800px', height: '500px', background: 'transparent' });
</script>


You should open the "config.xml" file as well with Notepad and make simialr changes to path names if they occur there. I don't have the whole config.xml file so can't do that from here. You are welcome to send it to me if you wish..

OK Kami. One down and six ultrasound images to follow. The pup is black, looks healthy healthy and sucking. "Yourdog"( mother's name) is white so I guess you could say that she is a xenophilic dam and a thorough bred ... thoroughly bred by every wandering sire in her scent (damn it).

Back to the real issues. if you can see images then the show works. Image issues are usually to do with names and path errors. Check all your image names of the files in the folder gallery/images/ they must match the exact name within the xml file to the very last character and no shortcuts will work. You also need to use valid characters with Roman characters being the most likely to work. Spaces in names can be an issue and if you have such image names then suggest that you exchange the space or space code ( %20 is the space code I think) and replace this code with a hyphen.
Check your .xml file likewise; plus the full path name for each image not forgetting the leading resources/

If it's a timing error and you're seeing your images appearing in one cycle and not in another then this is a timeout situation and I really don't know how to manage that. It could be a loading time issue or a pre-load issue or other aspects that are mysterious to me. I generally just wait a while and check again later, but it doesn't happen very often at all.

Please don't feel that you have to do this but I think that slideshow is one of the nicest and unaffected that I have seen. If you are happy to share the origin website or whatever I'm sure a lot of people would love to play with it.

I understand though if you wish to hold it close to your chest for the time being.
