    Hi Lilly,

    I see the jQuery library is loaded twice on your website. This stops the slideshow from starting, as it doesn't know which one to use.

    The problem should be solved if you remove these lines from your theme's 'footer.php' file:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.18/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

    If you need this scripts, you should include them in your theme's 'header.php' file, right before the 'wp_head();' call. It should look something like this:

    wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); // Add this line.
    wp_enqueue_script('jquery-ui'); // Add this line.
    wp_head(); // This line already exists.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Hi Stefan, thank you for your answer, BUT I see these 2 line when I press "Inspect elements" on my site, but when I go to footer.php (wp-content - footer.php) I cant find them? Sorry for the dummy question, but I really cant find where there are really?

    That's not a dummy question at all. It might be that the scripts were included there by a plugin or by your theme's 'functions.php'.

    To see if they're put there by a plugin, you could disable your plugins one by one until the scripts disappear from the page.

    If they're not put there by a plugin, they must be included by the the theme's 'functions.php' file. The 'functions.php' file should then contain a line of code that start with something like this: 'wp_enqueue_script("http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js", ...'

    Thank you very very much Stefan for your time.

    It was from my Design Options (Thesis Theme) - the jQuery was active sitewide, so that is why maybe the jQuery library loaded twice.

    Really great great great plug inn and fantastic support!!!!!!!!

    I am a big fan of your work!

    Aloha from Maui Stefan. Love the plugin, my only problem is that I have a large amount of white space under the slideshow. Is there any way to get rid of that and bring my verbage to just under the show. I have no doubt that I'm doing something wrong, but appreciate your help!

    Hi,

    A white space below the slideshow is often the cause of the slideshow being placed in an inline-element like a header: '<h1>', '<h2>', andsoforth, or an inline-elment like a paragraph: '<p>'.

    Some themes have built their sidebar using a list: '<ul><li>...</li></ul>', which would also cause the slideshow to have a white space below it.

    If it's a header or paragraph (or any other tag that's not a '<div>' element) that wraps the slideshow you could probably simply remove it. If your theme's sidebar is built using a list, you should probably have to rebuild the sidebar. This would all help getting your website to be in valid HTML.

    You can check if your website is built using valid HTML here.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Thanks Stefan, but it still shows the white space. I've tested it on a new page with no formatting at all. I've inserted the slide show into the middle of a sentence with no inline element at all.

    It could be that WordPress is automatically adding a paraqgraph to the sentence. Could you try moving it out of the sentence and clicking on the text editor's 'text' tab, which is next to the 'visual' tab. You should be able to see if any paragraph tags are around the slideshow there. If there are none, please save the page or post and see how the slideshow looks.

    If that doesn't work, could I perhaps see your website?

    I'm baffled(but that isn't very hard for me!)

    I have the following code in text portion:

    'This is a test for white space below the slideshow
    [slideshow_deploy id='516']
    This should be just below the slideshow.'

    I don't see anything that would cause the white space below the slider. I've tried it as a post and a page with the same results. Here is the link to the page:

    Thanks for including the links. I see that the height of the slideshow is set to be 1000 pixels, even though your images are only 621 pixels in height. The whitespace would disappear if you set the slideshow's height to 621 as well.
