Slideshow
Only One Image Showing (4 posts)

    Well, I've read through a bunch of the threads about only one image showing with the slideshow (which I love, btw, if I can just get the thing working!). And still am not sure what to do.

    My site is http://www.reellifewithjane.com

    Basically, I create a post and then try to put a slideshow with several images in there, but only the top image shows and there's no slideshow happening.

    I saw where you're supposed to do something with this:

    Do you call the '<?php wp_footer(); ?>' function right before the '</body>' tag in the 'footer.php' file in your website's theme? This is required in order to be able to load the slideshow script.

    But I'm not sure where to look for it. I'm using Thesis Theme version 1.8.5, with the Magazine skin, which replaces the Thesis custom file with the Magazine custom file. I'm not sure where to look for the footer thing.

    Any help is much appreciated. I really love the ease of this slideshow (after putzing around with NexGen for a day and then abandoning it!).

  2. If you're using Thesis, yes, they put in wp_footer :)

    However they may be overriding your jquery and causing an issue. Have you asked Thesis about any jquery conflicts?

    Thanks, Mika. Yeah, I checked with the Thesis folks, but they're clueless. Well, not clueless, in general (they're awesome!), but clueless about this particular instance.

    What's the thing about the jquery no-conflict? Is there a code or plugin that might be a quick fix?

    I see another jQuery script being loaded in at the bottom of the page. This causes jQuery to reload in its entire. Some scripts will fail because of this, return errors and stop all JavaScript execution on the page. Slideshow will also be affected by this.

    The line of script that's causing this can probably be found in your theme's 'footer.php' file, right before the '</body>' tag. You can safely delete this, since jQuery is already being loaded by WordPress in the header of the website (Also, I can't imagine Thesis putting it there). The line of code to remove looks like this:

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

    If this line of script doesn't seem to be present, you might want to try disabling some plugins to see if any of them are poorly including jQuery into the page.
