    Hello all,

    I just bought frontpage slideshow 2.0 from joomla works last week, and I cannot seem to figure out how to install it on my WP site. My main site is running joomla now, but I like wordpress soo much more that I really want to figure this out... so I have my WP template running on http://www.stompeforums.com .

    PLease check it out. So far, All I've done is insert the provided code from their site, and 2 MAJOR problems occur... :(

    1) the whole thing takes FOREVER to load up and show up.
    2) the box is blank and does not show images.

    I have it running the "demoslideshow," but obviously will create my own later on, but if this doesn't work, then I might have to go back to joomla! :(

    How do you add the Frontpage-Slideshow plugin output to a post or page? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/frontpage-slideshow/

    Actually, you just cant put it on a random page : as it is written, it put the slideshow to the front page.

    The next release will allow you to put it when ever you want by inserting a shot-tag.

    How can i put it into the php code?
    Or why just can't I put the shortcode into a text widget?
    One of them would be very useful!

    The text widget/standalone widget way to display the slideshow is planned for a future version (it is not "so" easy to deal with that) but it is planned.

    To add it into a php code, you could invoque the frontpageSlideshow function like this :

    <?php
    	echo frontpageSlideshow('',true,frontpageSlideshow_get_options());
    ?>

    I have not tested but it should work fine. Let me know if you test or have trouble (try to open a new thread for that)

    The version 0.7 allows to display the slideshow into the sidebar by using the WordPress Text Widget and the shortcode.
    To do so, the original WordPress Text Widget is modified by the plugin in order to allow the use of all others shortcodes with it.

    To insert the slideshow anywhere you want in a theme, consider using the following way :

    <?php echo do_shortcode('[FrontpageSlideshow]'); ?>
    where [FrontpageSlideshow] is the short code eventually enclosing an alternative content to display if the slideshow can't or must not be displayed.

    Enjoy
