I'll take a punt at posting this problem. With so many other nextgen topics listed, hopefully someone will have a fix.
I have nexgen slideshow widgets in the footer and the sidebar. Everything works perfectly in FF. Predictably, nothing works well in IE. Sometimes the sidebar widget loads does load, but the footer widget never does. The slideshows do appear together on most pages, in which case the sidebar widget works. The footer widget loads on the homepage only and works.
I have tried disabling the sidebar widget, which I added after the footer widget but it really makes no difference. The footer widget still doesn't load.
This is really baffling to me and unfortunately I'm not code savvy enough to find out why there is some sort of conflict. I'm really looking for any type of input.
