    Hi:

    this morning I have upgrade to the last version of Next Gen Gallery via the "auto upgrade" feature and it seemed to work... the galleries are still there but the slideshow I had on my blog now they don't show anything but the loading image...

    I don't know what more to revise...

    any help?

    thanks a lot

    here is my web where the problem is : http://www.javiquil.com

    it's happen to me too. exactly the same case. so I thought it's because of slideshow widget not supported in new version of NEXTGEN
    as I need the slideshow.. so I upload the old version of NEXTGEN, but slideshow widget still doesn't work.

    please advise how to fix it.

    Thank you,

    T.

    Make sure your folder name is nggallery it usually changes it during upgrade and you have to change it back.
    Hopefully that is the problem

    I've downloaded the latest version of NextGen and tried to use the slideshow, the gallery is working properly but the slideshow only shows the loading icon.
    Also I've tried to change the folder's name to nggallery (wp-content/nggallery) but it still won't work and with that the gallery doesn't work either even after changing the folder in the option pane.
    So I changed it back but I'ld like to have the slideshow feature.
    Does anyone knows how to do it?

    I just upgraded NextGEN and WordPress yesterday. Having the same issue - the slideshow shows a constant loading icon. Prior to upgrade it worked perfectly. I've tried deleting the plugin and dropping the NG tables before reinstalling it, but no luck. From suggestions I found here, I tried renaming the plugin folder to nggallery and installing the newest version of imagerotator, too. Any other suggestions?

    Here's what solved my issue: Our client sent us images in .jpeg format. Renaming the files to .jpg made the slideshow work.

    return a internal server error, reupload the files, recheck permission and maybe server log

    Hi Alex,

    I have just upgraded to 0.99 and I am sad to report the same problem here. The slideshow does not appear.

    When I look at firebug, the script is executed. However, the SWF file is not loaded and neither are the xml playlist files.

    URL http://www.vincentprat.info/perou (the top-right div should have a slideshow)

    The playlist is created well: http://www.vincentprat.info/perou/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/nggextractXML.php?gid=1

    Regards,

    Vincent

    I always have this problem when using the build-in update function.
    Downloading and FTPing it up to the site works! It's even enough to upload the imagerotator.swf file only.
    Seems to be a file permission / owner problem, but i didn`t investigate yet.

    I think I have the same problem - I updated nggallery "automatically" and now the flash application doesn't work anymore, the pictures are not in a square they are all one under the other. could you please tell me how to solve the problem. I've already removed and reinstalled nggallery manually but there's no change and i tested it with FF3 and IE7 - there's no diffrence :-(

    could you please explain the 'permission' problem to me, you're talking about the folder permissions? like these 3-digit code (when you permit everyone everything its 777).

    thanks for your help, the page is: http://dugee.sf-ogame.de/blog/

    somehow i couldn't solve the problem ... first of all can someone tell me which permission i have to set for which folder and then what's the next step? installing the plugin once more? de- and reactive it???

    and has anyone taken a look on my page? my problem sounds similar to you problems but it's slightly different.

    thanks for your help!!

    Hello,
    I had exactly the same problem that Dugee 2 days ago when upating the plugin automatically. All my pictures disappeared but I managed to show them again after remaining the folder "nextgen-gallery" into "nggallery" (why does the name had changed??).
    But now the pictures gallery don't show up correctly (1 column instead of 5) like if the css was not recognized, and the slideshows don't upload. It's even worth in Firefox.
    Here is my website: http://www.planete-coursdeau.com/wordpress/?page_id=15
    Please help us save this bug as we are many with the same problem.
    Thanks in advance
    Solene

    in such cases I suggest always to reupload all files manually per FTP and check as well the permission. Normally the name didn't need to be changed

    Erg. I've read this entire thread and done all the tips, and still to no avail. I even downgraded to a release of NextGen that I know was working on a client site. Still no slideshow!

    http://marketingturbocharge.com/blog/speakers/

    Any more tips, advice or suggestions?

    I'm running WordPress version 2.5-RC3 because 2.6 broke my theme.

    I've posted this issue elsewhere, but it appears that this thread is more applicable to my problems as they are the same as everyone else that has posted here thus far. After upgrading to the newest version of WordPress about 1 month ago, the NextGen Gallery stopped working. I can no longer get pictures to show-up on my pages/posts and the slideshows only show the busy icon. I've done (I think) most of the tips offered in this thread, but to no avail. I'm a bit of a novice at this so any help would be most welcome. You can view our website and where the slideshow should be here.

    I am having an issue where the pictures are not loading. I have done everything listed in this thread. the site is ww2.lucidsolutionsgroup.com

    I have almost the same issue. Everything goes well when I create a new gallery, everything goes well when uploading pictures,

    Then it goes not that well : no problem to display thumbs, but no way to show the "mother pictures". I found out why. The problem is linked to file permissions.

    Lets say:
    Gallery (folder)
    GalleryTest (folder)
    Pict1
    Pict2
    Thumbs (folder)
    Pict1Thumb
    Pict2Thumb

    Gallery, GalleryTest and Thumbs have required file persmissions
    Thumbs pictures have required file permissions
    GalleryTest pictures don't have the required permissions and cannot be readed to be displayed.

    Therefore, why don't the picture files get the required permissions ? How is this handled within WordPress ?

    Someone can help me to understand the process ?

    Thanks,

    Gaston
