[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] slideshow not working at all? (13 posts)

    So I want a slideshow within a post on my homepage at http://umasslegal.org.

    I installed NGG, uploaded photos, etc. Everything seems to be working fine.

    So this is the homepage:

    [slideshow id=1]
    
    The Legal Studies Department at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst is an undergraduate program devoted to the study of law and society. It provides students with the analytical framework to evaluate the practice of law and its role in society. It is one of the oldest and most widely respected Legal Studies programs in the nation.

    And yet at http://umasslegal.org, nothing shows up but the text.

    What gives? I've followed all the directions and everything seems to be working on the backend, why isn't this working?

    Hi,
    I think I have the same problem. Backend, regular album and picture display works fine, image browser works fine - but when adding the slideshow, nothing is displayed.

    Please check the path of the slideshow in the gallery settings

    the path is wp-content/gallery/index_slideshow.

    that's normal, correct? i'm not sure what i should be checking for.

    hrm, ok, well, imagerotator wasn't in /uploads/, but i'd had another copy of it uploaded somewhere else on the site. i changed the path to http://etc.umasslegal.org/slideshows/imagerotator.swf. then i called [slideshow=1] in the homepage again and it still doesn't work.

    any ideas? thanks!

    i deleted the gallery, reuploaded everything from scratch with the appropriate settings you describe earlier, still isn't working.

    Alex,

    I am experiencing the same problems as above...everything seems to work except the slideshow.....it was working up until I upgraded wordpress to 2.7x. I installed the imagerotator file in uploads, checked the path for the slideshow settings.

    Is there anything else I should be checking possibly related to the wordpress upgrade???

    Thanks,

    Vic Eng

    When I upgrade lightbox to 2.01 or 2.02, it doesn't work anymore. I use WP 2.6.2. Is this a WP issue, or NextGen?

    As a followup, I am getting the following error from my browser when I go to view as a slideshow.

    http://stjudesmonroe.org/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/xml/imagerotator.php?gid=11&656

    not found

    I double checked the directory and it is there so I'm confused. The slideshow used to work and at some point it stopped working. I am running 1.20 release candidate 2 and wordpress 7.1. I have installed nextgen from scratch....albums and galleries are fine but only the slideshow is still a problem. It just loops.

    hope this sheds some light on the problem.

    The url is stjudesmonroe.org/gallery.
