    how do I use custom slides as the slideshow instead of posts/pages?

    I want to show a slider with lightbox for full images and also thumbnail gallery underneath or to the side - is this possible?

    As for galleries, NextGen is not supported but you can always use the [slideshow post_id=XXX ] shortcode to display a given post/page gallery.

    Custom slides are defined in the "Manage Slides" admin page, then they are shown through the [slideshow custom=1] shortcode (as specified by the FAQ), but at the moment the custom slide link won't open in a lightbox. If you absolutely need it, try by adding the class $imgbox at line 331 and 333 as it has been done at line 273 and 275.

    Thumbnails can be enabled in the "Configuration" pane, style and position will change according to your CSS.

    I hope you're going to enjoy this plugin.

    Thanks for the reply, how can I put the Combo Slideshow into a widget area?

    I tried the shortcode [slideshow custom=1] and it says gallery not found

    is there a conflict with multisite perhaps? I am trying to use this on the root domain though?

    As far as I know, the plugin is working in multisite mode, but shortcodes are not supported in widget areas by default.
    You should better manually insert the PHP code in your widget template files.
    However, give a look at http://digwp.com/2010/03/shortcodes-in-widgets/
