I have just installed word press on host papa and when i uploaded the old wordpress.com site I had been preparing it on, the slideshow is missing.
I have looked at alternative sideshows but the one that seems to be the default one actually looked great as it had black background and worked well with transparencys.
I have looked to see if their is a box that needs ticking to activate it but no luck.
To be honest ideally I would like to have this slideshow looking like this did and have clickable images so they go to specific pages on the site. I have found a slideshow that does this but it doesnt look as good
I am currently using the 2011 theme
