    i'm building a web page with sitegrinder 2 which uses photoshop to build a web page and i'm trying to add multiple photo galleries into the page. i'm using simpleviewer's brother, autoviewer and i'm having trouble, uh...coding for this or whatever, i'm not sure.

    i built a separate photo gallery for each subject i wanted, lets just say they are 1, 2, 3 and 4. so i have four folders named accordingly each containing an autoviewer.swf, gallery.xml, images folder, index.html and a swfobject.js.

    now i put each of those four, uh, like "master" folders (1, 2, 3 and 4) in the root of my...i'm guessing ftp (i use cyberduck to access this).

    i then link my 1, 2, 3, 4 gallery pages to www.example.com/1/index.html

    then i never get to the page i want, what am i doing wrong? does the place where i host my files not work the way i'm thinking? i can access the page if i go to www.ftp.example.com/1/index.html but only after logging in.

    i'm sorry if this is jumbled because i really don't know the intricacies of what i'm doing.

    Give us a link to your website ... the way it is now ... so we can see it.

    You may or may not know that if we see your site, or any website, we can
    view the HTML source code and figure out where you might be referencing
    your files or directories incorrectly.

    Some terminology you should know ...

    In windows, we call them "folders", on the internet (UNIX) we call them "directories".
    They are the same thing, but it might confuse you when we say "directories".

    Absolute References = links to photos, other pages, etc. are defined by the
    whole URL .... example: <img src="http://www.example.com/photos/P1245.JPG">

    Relative References = links to photos, other pages, etc. that reflect the path from
    where you currently are at ... example <img src="photos/P1245.JPG">

    There is a big difference, and if you put directories and sub-directories in the wrong places,
    things won't work properly. Often times, using web editing software, folders don't get
    translated properly to "directories".
