Slideshow Gallery
Conflict with Latest NextGen Plugin (5 posts)

    Team,

    When nextgen is activated along with Slideshow Gallery, NextGen takes over the slideshow shortcode preventing Slideshow Gallery from displaying and causing errors to appear from nextgen's slideshow.

    Can we decouple this dependency on the same shortcode keyword?

    This workaround fixed this conflict for us

    Edit wp-content/plugins/slideshow-gallery/slideshow-gallery.php line 40
    add_shortcode('slideshow', array($this, 'embed'));

    and replace with registering the shortcode of your choice ie;
    add_shortcode('YOURSHORTCODE', array($this, 'embed'));

    Then revisit the Plugin Description: Feature content in a JavaScript powered slideshow gallery showcase on your WordPress website. The slideshow is flexible and all aspects can easily be configured. Embedding or hardcoding the slideshow gallery is a breeze. To embed into a post/page, simply insert [YOURSHORTCODE] into its content with an optional post_id parameter ... etc

    Thanks a lot LaFranglaise!! The workaround really works! Apparently NextGen conflicts also with other gallery image plugins, if we deactivate NextGen those plugins also work.

    It is maybe good to say that, in order of the workaround by @LaFranglaise to work you have to temporarily deactivate the NextGen plugins, then you can upload your slides to the Slideshow gallery, if everything is ok, you should be able too see the thumbnail of the slides you add to your gallery. Then you can do the workaround and insert the [YOURSHORTCODE] in your post editor. It will work i am using wordpress 3.7.1 and Slideshow gallery Version 1.2.3.2
