    The company I work for is looking to integrate Monoslideshow with the NextGen Gallery. I see that there has been some work done with it at http://nextgen-gallery.com/playground/. I am just hoping for a suggestion on how to get this going for the company I work for.

    My Monoslideshow addon is still in progress and not finished. It require some changes in the handling , but if you would like to do it by yourself , then pick up the xml script part, it's a good start

    Alex, would you recommend against using your NextGEN Monoslideshow addon in its current version?

    I am very tempted but would wait if there are still many issues/bugs.

    You can test it now yourself http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-monoslideshow/

    It needs a couple of tweaks until it becomes V1.00, but should work so far

    I downloaded the monoslideshow and purchased the .swf files. Everything looks like it is working correctly in my WP dashboard. However, when I go to preview the page, instead of a slideshow, I get the message "The Flash Player and a browser with Javascript support are needed.." Both my Flash Player and my browser (Firefox) are up to date. Any ideas?

    Here is the test page link:

    BTW, I am working on a MacBook Pro.

    Thanks for the awesome plug-ins and help! Nextgen Gallery is terrific and makes my site so professional looking. This integration with monoslideshow is going to be even better.... if I can get it to work right! ;-)

    Hmmm. I've installed the most up-to-date nextgen, and the monoslideshow plugin. when I try and use it with the short code, I get the following error message within the monoslideshow player:

    http://www.orderchaosart.com/indexphp?callback=monoslideshow&gid=0&preset=tv-swap":error#1090

    Can't wait to get this working properly.

    jamking, you have to purchase the monoslideshow.swf file. It is not included in the free plug-in. The website is http://www.monoslideshow.com/

    I bought monoslideshow and can't get it to work properly on my site. It works for the first gallery I made, but not the second and third. Instead I get that 1090 error. You can see the galleries side by side here:
    http://www.edwardsvillescene.com/events/sports/photo-test/
    I'm trying to log in to the forum on the monoslideshow site, but it won't let me, even though I can log in to the "My Area" section with no problems. This is really frustrating me, and holding up a story I want to publish today.

    For those of you with some web development skills who want to further customize your WordPress integration of the NextGEN Gallery and Monoslideshow, you can make a few tweaks to Alex Rabe's Monoslideshow plugin to add a "Custom" XML preset.

    You'll need to modify the file named monoslideshow.php in the root nextgen-monoslideshow plugin directory : look for the option values under the <select> with name="monoslideshow[preset]" (about the middle of the file). Add the following to the end of the options list and save the file:

    <option value="custom" <?php selected('custom', $this->options['preset']); ?> ><?php _e('Custom', 'monoss'); ?></option>

    Now you can use the Demo located at http://www.monoslideshow.com/demo to design a custom XML file. The mod you'll need to make after creating the XML file is to delete the portion of the "configuration" entry on the 3rd line that begins with "startWithAlbumID" (e.g. startWithAlbumID="zeptonn").

    For example, if the 3rd line reads as follows:

    <configuration delay="4" startWithAlbumID="zeptonn" viewport="20,20,20,40,offset">

    Change it to read:

    <configuration delay="4" viewport="20,20,20,40,offset">

    Now save this XML file with a filename of "custom.xml".

    Finally, using your FTP editor of choice, upload the corrected monoslideshow.php file to the plugin root directory and the custom.xml file to the presets sub-directory.

    Now all you need to do is change the option named "Select default preset" in Alex's Monoslideshow Options to "Custom" to enable your custom slideshow XML.

    Hope this of use to some of you.

    Maybe Alex will make this mod and add the ability to upload the custom.xml file through the plugin for future users.

    Thanks for the great plugin Alex.

    Hello -
    I'm having an issue of when the slideshow starts to run USED to be able to click the photo and it would pause. Now it just advances to the next image and pause is not available. I don't thing I did anything except upgrade to v3.0 of WordPress.

    This is a super plug-in!

    Any suggestions?

    Regards
    George

    Hello I'm having severe problems center aligning my monoslideshow on my wordpress page. Any ideas on which file I need to edit?

    What are all the parameters I can use in the [monoslideshow id=xx] term inside my post?
    I saw in this forum w=xxx and h=yyy for the with and the height but what are all the others, if any?
    My purpose is off course to customize the slideshow for each post
    I have no development skills and the method of TLDavis245 is too complicated for me!
    Thank's !

    I'd like to second Ifone's request Alex!

    Can we add parameters inside the brackets? Or do we need to make a custom file like mentioned above?

    Being able to put in parameters inside the brackes would sure make things far easier!

    Thanks for a fantastic plugin!

    I love monoslidshow. My problem is a display issue. I'm using the "Sparkles" preset. Just one issue -- is there a way to change the thick black frame around the slide show? The "sparkles" are lovely, but the heavy black frame is seriously clunky.

    ALex already included a default preset parameter for using monoslideshow.

    Just use preset="" on your shortcode.

    Example : [monoslideshow id=1 w=640 h=358 preset="Spot"]

    If you are using custom made XML, just put your custom name.

    Worked for me, I'm using different monoslideshow with different XML theme on various pages.

    I'd like to keep using "Sparkles" -- it's the reason I purchased monoslideshow -- and I've been able to modify the size -- i just want to make a slight modification to the outer frame. Usually I'm fairly good at modifying preset code -- but this one eludes me. I'd love some suggestions.
