I think you need to get back in the box. Attaching external exhibits to
a TMG Tag and having them appear in Second Site is a well-known function
that has been around since about the earliest beta versions. In my
opinion, there is almost certainly a step that you are missing (or more
than one) that would make everything work.
Have you ever gotten to the point where Second Site generates a "camera
icon" after the sentence for a Tag to which an external exhibit is attached?
By the way, the only graphics I see when I look at the page you provide
the link for, are the top and bottom "Graphics by Touch a Memory". What
am I supposed to see?
