THE SPONGE BOARD VERSION 2 XML IMAGE & VIDEO GALLERY with category and tag sorting

Feb. 17, 2009 update – Thumbnails will now scroll vertically if the thumbnail area would exceed the space provided. A bug was also fixed. :)
Mar. 1, 2009 update – Element buttons shown set to “no” bug fixed. :)
July 31, 2009 update – A bug regarding the thumbnails has been fixed. Error will not occur if clicking on thumbnails too fast anymore. :)

This is a dynamic, flexible and powerful gallery that can hold images, SWFs, and videos. It has the Sponge Board thumbnail menu that you can customize to fit you, produce very interesting effects and makes your gallery unique. There are over 40 XML attributes you can change without ever touching the Flash file. You can change the position, width, and color of almost everything in the gallery. You can also change text format, transparencies, yes/no options, and much more. The gallery has a very complex category and sorting menu. You can have many elements within each project or thumbnail, and each of these elements can be tagged with keywords. You can have many categories, each with many tags within, or just one category with tags inside, producing the same effect as having a normal categorized gallery. You can read more information in the help file that comes with this for how to set it up. You can also choose not to have elements within each project/thumbnail so it’s a normal 1-level gallery. Please view all the things you can change in the XML that are listed below, as well as view the screenshots below of some sample scenarios that were produced by changing the XML .

AS3 only. Opens with Flash CS3 .

Step by step instructions are included and code is commented. Also, two html files are included, one to demonstrate fixed SWF size embedding and one to demonstrate full browser SWF embedding.
