Topic: embed code not coming out/ blank screen

Hello, I've used the code generator a bunch of times but no luck this time.... not sure why.
I put in the url: http://www.rickcollinsphotographyblog.c … show_final
And asks me to click once more to add ?embedcode
..... then blank screen comes up.
Not sure why or how to fix this.
Thanks

Re: embed code not coming out/ blank screen

It appears the "index.html" file for your slide show is either missing or blocked by your server configuration. I am able to load your player with this URL:

http://www.rickcollinsphotographyblog.c … slider.swf

However, I am not able to load the "index.html" file with this URL:

http://www.rickcollinsphotographyblog.c … index.html

It may just be that you need to re-upload this one file so the embedding tool can process your slide show.

Thanks Jonathan. But it doesn't look like the server is "blocking" this file.
I've re-uploaded a new index.html folder back up and the generator still will not give me a code.

Ok, got it sorted I hope.
It was missing the iframe.
Thx

Re: embed code not coming out/ blank screen

Whooops. I spoke too soon.
Now no matter what I try I get a large black frame around the bottom and right hand side.
This is a mystery, because it doesn't show up on soundslides when I do a test. It only appears once I put it through the code generator. Arggggh.
**** And nothing showing up on iPad, which was my original purpose.....
**** Ok, here I am exhausted in my attempts to find a solution to this. I have tried absolutely everything. I took the entire show down and rebuilt from scratch. Looks perfect in "TEST" and export is fine. Upload all there now. But put through the code generator and it fails. Help???

Re: embed code not coming out/ blank screen

Sorry for all the frustration, I'm not sure what's going on.  Can I see the page where you're posting the iframe code?

The slide show itself looks fine from here. And I'm able to see the iframe embed code at this link:
http://www.rickcollinsphotographyblog.c … ?embedcode

I used the second code (listed on the page linked above) to embed the slide show in a test page.  It's posted here:
http://media.soundslides.com/files/testforrick.html

The test renders properly on Mac, Windows and an iPad.  Are you able to see that on your end?

There must be something simple getting in the way ...

I think it would be most helpful to see the page where you're posting the iframe (basically, I need to see the "black frame").

Joe, here's what I've been putting into the generator.

And here's what it looks like:

Re: embed code not coming out/ blank screen

Does that latest link you posted continue to not work on you iPad?

It's working here on all browsers, iPhones and iPads.  Here are two screenshots from my iPad:

http://media.soundslides.com/files/rick/IMG_0005.jpg

What are you seeing on your end now?

As for the code generator, it should work properly with that first link.  When you enter it, it should tell you that the slide show is HTML5 based and request that you click through to the iframe code page.

Re: embed code not coming out/ blank screen

Thanks Joe, not sure why it had the black frame problem but now working fine on all fronts.
Thanks. Rick
