    Someone else mentioned this as well after updating, but was able to resolve the issue by deleting the slideshow and downloading and installing it again.

    I deleted the slideshow plugin and re-installed it. Still does not work. Same output.

    Do you have any kind of caching plugin running on your website that may still have a copy of the page the slideshow was on in memory? (Something like W3 Total Cache) Clearing the cache may then resolve the issue.

    Besides Slideshow the only active plugins are JetPack 2.1.2 and WordPress SEO 1.3.4.4

    I see what's happening now. WordPress is adding '<br />' tags to the slideshow's HTML, which breaks it. This is very strange behaviour that the plugin tries to automatically get around, but in your case does not succeed to.

    I'll release version 2.2.4 of the slideshow plugin as soon as possible. This will probably fix your slideshow.

    I'm having a similar issue with 3.5.1
    I've got no other plugins active and the site is using fairly basic html.
    The slideshow is crammed up with navigation arrows far left.
    It's currently on this site, but i need to fix it asap - so might not be by the time anyone here sees it.

    Any idea on an ETA for 2.2.4?

    Your problem can be resolved by adding the '<?php wp_head(); ?>' function call right above the '</head>' tag in your theme's header.php file, and placing the '<?php wp_footer(); ?>' function call right above the '</body>' tag in your theme's footer.php file.

    These function calls are absolutely necessary for any WordPress theme, to support all plugins.

    More information about the 'wp_head()' and the 'wp_footer()' functions.
