Integrating SimpleViewer with WP (19 posts)

    I've read a post suggesting that using kimli's flash embedded for wordpress, and then using that to integrate SimpleViewer should work. I;m not sure how to go about this. I have the flash embedder plugin installed, I have yet to upload simpleviewer, but what would be the method on doing this?

    Cheers

    Anyone else had success with this? I've looked at the CSS, but it's within a PHP file, and includes what seem to be PHP specific elements which are tied to the CSS so I don't know jack from adam on this one.

    What I need to do is to include the front page that admin plugin adds which updates the page everytime there is a new album added. So that would display within a WP page, and included in that below it or along side it would be the gallery itself.

    It's a nice tool, but it has a crap backend, and it's a dog to modify. Great results though with the images, now I jsut need to get the thing integrated with least administrative effort

    Hello- after much experimentation, I finally got it to work this way:

    1. upload all of the simpleviewer files and images and build the gallery and confirm that it works in your test directory. for example: http://yoursite.com/galleries/test/

    2. make sure that you have the kimli flash plugin activated.

    3. Use this code in your new page post:
    <kml_flashembed movie="http://yoursite.com/galleries/test/viewer.swf" height="650" width="650" fvars="xmlDataPath = http://yoursite.com/galleries/test/imageData.xml" bgcolor="#ffffff"></kml_flashembed>

    The key here is to use the variable that sets a specific path to the xml file. Using virtual site structure creates a problem when the swf file tries to locate the xml file in the same (virtual) directory.

    Of course the other variables can be set to whatever you want according to the look of your site. It may not be exactly perfect, but it works ;)
    Here's mine in action: http://luckyface.org/ahall/

    Hi - I would like to see more examples of worldpress sites integrating with SimpleViewer. Is it possible keep our structure and simpleviewer runs inside our blog?

    i finally got this working after setting the image and thumbnail directory in the acual xml file. Luckyface, how did you move the thumbnails below the images instead of to the right of it?

    thehum:
    that setting is also in the xml file = navPosition="bottom"

    navPosition: Position of thumbnails relative to image. Can be "top", "bottom","left" or "right"

    Hi, Luckyface!

    I've tried your code to embed the simple viewer and/or postcard viewer to wordpress, but it doesn't seem to work. I have double checked the code and my paths and everything is written correctly. I have wp 2.0 and version .3 of the plugin. Do you know if your code still works in wp 2.0?

    Thanks!

    I couldn't get that to work, either. However, I did get the gallery to display using rhe Redirectify plugin.

    I might write a quick walkthrough once I get the next CG-PowerPack update out the door. I set up SimpleViewer for wedding photos, embedded in a Page, works great.

    I set up /images and /thumbs folders in my wp root (easiest), and I think I tweaked my buildgallery.php a tiny bit to adjust for my site. viewer.swf and imagedata.xml also reside in the wp root (again, just easiest at the time), as do the other js/etc files.

    My Pages' content looks like:

    <excerpt Some Candid Snapshots />
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="http://www.chait.net/wedding/flash_detect.js"><!-- function getFlashVersion() { return null; }; --></script><script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"><!-- var flashVersion = getFlashVersion(); if (flashVersion < 6) { location.replace("upgrade.html"); } --></script>
    <center><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="720" height="550" align="middle" valign="top">
    <param name="movie" value="../viewer.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="scale" value="noscale" />
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
    <param name="BGCOLOR" value="#AC90CB" />
    <param name="FlashVars" value="xmlDataPath=../imageData.xml" />
    <embed src="../viewer.swf" width="720" height="550" align="middle" valign="top" quality="high" scale="noscale" bgcolor="#AC90CB" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" FlashVars="xmlDataPath=../imageData.xml" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
    </object></center>

    Note that for the paths, I needed the "../" as my permalinks have me not in the wp root, but in "/photos/".

    Oh, and the excerpt thing is a custom plugin of mine that force-sets a page's excerpt field -- it goes along with a Theme and plugins called "PagesOnly", made for building simple sites just using pages, no posts.

    I think a step by step outline of integrating SimpleViewer and WordPress would be helpful for a lot of people. Anyone?

    After spending nearly 10 hours attempting to figure out how to integrate the fantastic Simpleviewer photo gallery into my blog posts….I finally figured out a painless and insanely easy way to do it. So for my first every official post, I’m going to give you a quick run through.

    Hi there - again.... PLEASE do not reply to every SV post in the last umpteen years. The number you've posted to by now is more than sufficient.

    Thanks.
