Simpleviewer will not work

I have already looked at messages posted in the forum, but they are all relatively old. Has anyone been able to effectively make SimpleViewer photo gallery work? In a former post, someone said he did, and shared the code, but it doesn't work for me. I have downloaded all the files and folders, and of course put resources/ before the file or folder. The basic embed code is supposed to be

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->


<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

I have a subfolder svcore in the folder simpleviewer, so I should write
src=resources/simpleviewer/svcore/ etc...

When I do this, nothing happens. Just a blank box. If I try the full html code file, nothing happens either.

I have been able to create an SimpleViewer album using Jalbum, and then embed the url with iframe, however, that would require spending more money for the Jalbum software, AND paying for the storage. I don't think I should have to spend more money when I already have a website builder (Yola), and am also paying for my domain.

Please help...forum people and/or Yola employees.

Urrghhh...the code won't show, perhaps because their is js. This goes in between the start and end listed above

simpleviewer.ready(function () {
simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "100%", "100%", "000000", true);
});

I can't copy the code, so here is an image.

Sorry for the fuss, but I think it's working now. The code that someone listed in another post seems to work, but you need to make sure that the < is right before the iframe. Like this <iframe
