I've searched the forum and do not find any posts regarding the following:
When generating web pages from IVMP HTML Templates...
Because my media pages wind up in a different (from the HTML template) relative location upon creation of a IVMP web gallery, any relative links on the generated pages are broken. If this is an HTML templates issue, I would expect to find some posts in this forum. So perhaps the guilty party is me?

jvincemery:

When an HTML gallery is created all of the files are located in the destination folder and consist of the following:

file: index.html

folder: assets (image files for that particular theme's look)

folder: preview (thumbnail files for gallery)

folder: source (html files for each media page) Also in the source folder is a folder, image, which are the media image files.

Is that how your gallery files are configured and what theme are you using?

Do you Twango?

Hi Old Toad, and thanks...
I actually worked out my issue:
It doesn't really matter which theme I'm using--AFAIK, all of the templates are configured the same, with an index file, a media file, an assets folder, and a thumbnail.
A problem arose for me because I had modified the media file in the template with relative links that were valid as long as the relationship was maintained between the media file template and the linked items. However, that relationship changes when the gallery is created. I simply manually changed the HTML relative links (i.e., changed ../../link to ../../../link. Make sense?

Yes. I understand. The /../.. has gotten me mixed up when doing linking to files that are tiered up or down one or more folders away.
