    The latest update cleared all my slides! Why would an update touch the database? Don't do that! *slaps your wrist*

    It sounds like the developer is trying to save all the settings in files within the plugin-created folders. That's why upgrading is causing so many headaches (the files get overwritten when updating!). The solution is not to move around the images folder to wp-content and wp-content/uploads either. Use a table in the wp database to save info about slides where the slider are and what their properties are and just upload the image files to the usual wp-content/uploads/[yyyy]/[mm] folders.

    I got my old slides appearing by downloading a legacy version (0.3.1):
    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/nivo-slider-for-wordpress.0.3.1.zip

    And moving the nivoslider4wp_files folder from wp-content/uploads to wp-content. The order of the slides is being ignored however.

    HI
    I have a similar issue:
    After adding a new image and text, when saving a blank page only with the title:
    Nivo Slider For WordPress - Add Image
    shows up.
    and in the database all the fields show up NULL

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Dan
