Embed the .Mac web gallery on your iWeb site Internet
I've often found it odd that Apple doesn't allow you to embed your .Mac Web Gallery into your website. You can, of course, use the widget to display a thumbnail of your gallery, but it takes users away from your site, and that is a bad thing.

If you use iWeb's HTML snippet found under Web widgets, you can implement an iFrame that will display your web gallery within your page. It is very simple to do and will allow your users to stay on your page while leaving all functions of the site intact. Using the following code, you can inject the Web Gallery onto any page: You will need to change YOURNAME to the name you have chosen for .Mac, as well as ALBUMNUMBER to correspond to the album you would like to display. You can, of course, just copy the URL from your browser window and paste it after src=" -- remember to close the quotes. Your page width should be set to a minimum of 800 pixels in order to fit the frame.

I know this may be obvious to some, but it may help others out that are looking to condense and unify their online galleries.

You can also embed your entire .Mac Web Gallery if you want. Use the same code from above, but just change the address to <code>gallery.mac.com/YOURUSERNAME</code>.

Resize the HTML snippet box as necessary (I also had to change the page dimensions to 820 pixels wide for my entire gallery to fit). Th nice thing about doing it this way, is that if someone clicks on an album or a movie in the gallery, it will keep them on the same page and just update the embedded content.

Is there a trick to get this to work in Firefox? It works great with Safari, but when I view my site with Firefox it gets stuck in a constant loading state.

I've noticed that if I click in the Web Gallery iFrame to try to interact with it while in this loading state, it triggers something that then causes the gallery to load. Not really ideal behavior.

Thanks for any help.

The following code seems to work better with both Firefox and Safari:

<iframe width="900" height="800
" frameborder="0" src="URL of your web gallery" more attributes>
alternative text to be displayed for browsers which do not support iFrame
</iframe>

I've found that the 'tell a friend' link works for me with Firefox but just gets stuck with Safari 3.2.1 and Safari 4 beta.

This works well but is there any way to display it with the options already hidden?

The link for 'tell a friend' brings up a pop-up window but just gets stuck and doesn't end up sending a email.

Further, the slider on the bottom left for sizing the images is greyed out and doesn't work?
