SimpleViewer v6.4.0

SimpleViewer v6.4.0 has been released.

  • Option to 'Display Maps' in the captions when using SimpleViewer (rather than just displaying a link to open a map in a new page/link)
  • Increased the number of web-safe characters that can be used for the replacement character and separator in the 'SEO File Namer'
  • One minor bugfix in the skin's GUI

Please bear in mind that, due to the limited screen real estate given to captions in the free version of SimpleViewer (which the skin uses), you may wish to disable other captions when choosing to 'Display Maps'. Otherwise, the maps themselves may spill off the edge of the Flash stage and will not be visible in the browser window.

monkeyboy,

I upgraded to 6.4.0 today, and took notes, for future reference. As a result of your help (in the last month or so) with my questions and display preferences (see my recent posts), as a consequence of the new release I had to make the following changes. I thought you might be interested in them, possibly with an eye toward providing some across-release preference mechanism(s). In any event, here's a cut-and-paste of my notes:

1) Eliminate 1/100 (image count) in non-Flash mode:

Add...

font-size: 0;

...to the ".sv-caption .sv-paging" section in the 'svcore/css/simpleviewer.css' files:

C:\Program Files\svBuilder-Pro\template\svcore\css\simpleviewer.css
C:\Program Files\svBuilder\template\svcore\css\simpleviewer.css
C:\Users[Me]\AppData\Local\Temp\flaB024.tmp\svcore\css\simpleviewer.css
C:\Users[Me]\AppData\Roaming\jAlbum\skins\SimpleViewer\select\simpleviewer\svcore\css\simpleviewer.css
C:\Users[Me]\Documents\My Albums\2011-09 Houston\album\res\simpleviewer\svcore\css\simpleviewer.css
C:\Users[Me]\Downloads\simpleviewer-pro\simpleviewer_pro_220\web\svcore\css\simpleviewer.css
C:\www.billanddot.com\svBuilder\Houston-svBuilder\svcore\css\simpleviewer.css

2) Eliminate "Open in New Window" option in non-Flash mode:

Delete...

showOpenButton="<%String newShowOpenButton=svShowOpenButton.toString();%>${newShowOpenButton}"

...from xml.htt file:

C:\Users[Me]\AppData\Roaming\jAlbum\skins\SimpleViewer\xml.htt

3) Add "Home" button in upper-right-hand corner in Flash mode:

Add...

<a href="http://www.billanddot.com/"><img src="http://www.billanddot.com/house.gif" width="24" height="24" style="position: absolute; top: 15px; right: 10px;" alt="home" /></a>


...after "<body>" in index.htt file:

C:\Users[Me]\AppData\Roaming\jAlbum\skins\SimpleViewer\index.htt

4) Integrate Pro version:

Copy directory...

+C:\Program Files\svBuilder-Pro\template\svcore+

+...as C:\Users[Me]\AppData\Roaming\jAlbum\skins\SimpleViewer\select\simpleviewer\svcore+

Cheers,

Bill

Thank you for your notes.
Here are my notes on your notes!

1) The only file you need to modify in order for the change to be made when creating a SimpleViewer gallery with jAlbum is:
skins\SimpleViewer\select\simpleviewer\svcore\css\simpleviewer.css
Many of the other files you mention are part of svBuilder-Pro (which has nothing to do with jAlbum or the skin).
Although the change works fine, modifications of the 'svcore' folder are not officially supported by SimpleViewer Inc. and the skin must distribute the folder untouched.

2) & 3) If anyone else wishes to implement the changes you have implemented, I appreciate you documenting the changes required in this thread. Thank you.

4) Instructions for upgrading the skin from SimpleViewer-Standard to SimpleViewer-Pro can be found here.
The source of the Pro 'svcore' folder you state requires that the user has installed svBuilder-Pro. This is not necessary. The Pro 'svcore' folder can be found in the 'web' folder of the unzipped SimpleViewer-Pro download package.

monkeyboy,

Thanks for refining my instructions (which I've updated at home). I use FileLocator Pro ( http://www.mythicsoft.com/ ), and just turn it loose on my entire C drive (looking for simpleviewer.css, for instance); so, yep, I tend to get carried away, making sure I didn't miss anything.
