    Hi
    very new to website design so please don't be too technical with your answer!
    My website is: http://lincolnfilm.org.uk/
    where I am using your plugin. However, as you can see it looks terrible as it is not centralised and is not in ratio.
    As the site is for film people, this is a big problem!!
    Please help

    Hi,

    I see you've set the width of the slideshow to be 700 pixels. Go to the slideshow's settings and set the 'Width of the slideshow' setting to 0. The slideshow will than take care of setting its own width.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Hi
    I have just looked in the settings. The width was set to 0, height of slideshow 200, height of description boxes 50. Fit image into slide - yes

    Are you viewing these settings on the 'General Settings' page on the 'Default Slideshow Settings' tab, or are you on the slideshow's page which shows the list with slides?

    Alright, that page is just for changing the default settings. The slideshow's actual settings can be changed by editing the slideshow.

    Click the 'Slideshows' menu item and you'll see a list with your slideshows. Click the slideshow of which you want to change the settings. This is where you can find the slides list and where the slideshow's actual settings are. You can now change the width of the slideshow.

    YESSSSSSSS !!!!
    Thank you so much.
    I guess the proportion problem is because the slideshow height is too small?
    thanks again

    Yes, to solve the proportion problem you could set the 'Number of slides to fit into one slide' setting to 2, for instance.

    Sorry back again!!!
    Just updated your plug-in, and the proportions of the slideshow look really terrible.
    I do like the way it starts again though, much smoother and nicer looking

    That's correct. There have been a lot of changes in how the slideshow functions, and therefore some settings had to be reset.

    To be able to set the height and width of the slideshow in the way you were used to, set the 'Shrink slideshow's height when width shrinks' setting to 'No'. A setting will pop-up where you'll be able to set the height of the plugin as it was before.

    I'm very sorry for the inconvenience.
