Why html slideshow code project file is empty?
Q: I am a registered Visual Lightbox user and am trying to transfer all my project files to a new computer in preparation for decommissioning my old one.
The problem I have though is paths. For example a project was created and stored in:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Temp\2012\VLB\Website Galleries
and my new machine it is in:
How can I modify the settings so that I update the project?
A: VisualLightBox project file stored settings of your gallery only (information about
template, image resolution, template of thumbnails, etc), it does not include images.
So if you saved you project as .vislb file and decide to edit created gallery, all the images should be in the same folders/directories they were, when you saved .vislb file.
Otherwise, if you replaced or deleted images .vislb project file won't open correctly.
Anyway you can try to correct(check) paths to images in .vislb file.
Just open it in any text editor and find the following code:
<Images> <Image> <url>D:/Images/leaves/frosty.jpg</url> <title>frosty</title> </Image> <Image> <url>D:/Images/leaves/geranium-leaves.jpg</url> <title>geranium-leaves</title> </Image> <Image> <url>D:/Images/leaves/leaf.jpg</url> <title>leaf</title> </Image> </Images>
Check values used for <url> tags.
