Slideshow
Need help to get SLIDESHOW up. (4 posts)

    I need to understand the coding necessary to bring up the "Slideshow" by Stefan Boonstra. I have developed a page, activated the "Slideshow", entered a few images, and entered the Boonstra prescribed code to the page - but am unable to get the show to display. Ultimately, I want the viewer to be able to click on an image I have at the top-right of the page to bring up this "Slideshow". Can someone provide the necessary code that would do this? This is the page "Wonders of America" that is under development (the code is not presently inserted): http://dev.gvcameraclub.org/?page_id=1236

    Any help will be greatly appreciated on "Slideshow" by Stefan Boonstra, ver 1.3.3

    I am new at working with WordPress - Thanks for help! - Jim Roberts

    Hi Jim,

    Before I tell you how you can pop up elements by clicking on an image I'll ask you if you're able to get the slideshow to display at all. If it doesn't, it might be a similar problem to the one in this support thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-slideshow-slideshow-is-not-working-on-some-of-wp-pages?replies=4

    Regards,
    Stefan

    Stefan: Thanks for responding promptly! No, I was not able to get it to display. I was presuming that the display would not normally be displayed on the page, and that it could come up on top of the existing "Wonders ..." page. To do that I will want to have the viewer click on the "Gateway Arch" image located at the top right of the "Wonders ..." page. I did originally look at some of the threads that described the fix. However, I am new to WordPress and do not have much experience inserting code to specific places. So, I hesitated to try it. I will move ahead and try it. I'll probably need to know the precise places where the code needs to be inserted. Can you insert the code within the HTML tab view of the page. Or, do I need to insert the code elsewhere? Your "SLIDESHOW" gallery is very nice, and I hope to use it. I have tried certain other gallery types on other pages of the site with some success, but I am struggling with linking a slideshow to one separate image that would be clicked to bring up the slideshow. Any additional assistance on that technique will be greatly appreciated.
    Sincerely, Jim Roberts robertsjamesw@comcast.net

    Hi Jim,

    It sounds like what you're trying to accomplish is more something gallery-like, as you want to view an image after clicking on it. A slideshow is more often used as a default element in a page that provides the page with some movement action. It is possible to pop-up the slideshow on click though, but you'd have to program the code between clicking the "Gateway Arch" and the pop-up that contains the slideshow yourself. Galleries often support this by default.

    If you're talking about where to place the <?php wp_footer(); ?> code: You can place it anywhere in your theme.
    If you're talking about the code for the slideshow: You can also place this anywhere in your theme when working with the PHP code piece, the shortcode goes in the posts and pages of your site.

    Best regards,
    Stefan
