    Please help me with that error.

    In the frontend where I put [gallery type="slideshow"] the error This slideshow requires JavaScript shows up.

    I successfully install and active Jetpach plugin and also activate Curousel feature in wp dashboard.
    Develop own theme.

    Hello,

    this is URL od post where slideshow should be displayed:

    http://adria.devpassion.eu/ppp/

    Post is under construction so it is a mess right there.
    Under title (PPP in this case) I put: echo do_shortcode('[gallery type="slideshow"]'); in template content.php

    Do you experience similar issues when you add slideshow directly into the page content?

    Is it possible that I miss some js scripts. Something functions to include maybe?
    I'm just download, install and activate the plugin. Maybe need something more? Maybe some js include i header?

    Could you check that your theme includes the wp_head and wp_footer functions?

    I am getting the same error, but i am using a theme i purchased. When you say make sure theme includes the wp_footer functions where are you setting this? I could not find the function in the functions.php file.

    you must include wp_footer in footer.php if you use it.
    Just put <?php wp_footer(); ?> in the end of footer.php right before </body></html>.
    Let me know if you need some more help.

    Hi Srdan, thanks for prompt reply. I checked my footer.php and it has the code you mentioned and it specifically makes mention that it is included to ensure word press features work.

    <?php wp_footer(); ?> <!-- this is used by many WordPress features and for plugins to work properly -->

    It must be something else?

    This is driving me crazy as well.

    It seems to be a problem all over the web but with no real answers of how to fix it.

    @theOnlyMann I had a look at your site, and your theme, "theme1506", seems to be loading an old version of jQuery instead of using the version that comes bundled with WordPress.

    It can create multiple conflicts with WordPress and with other plugins like Jetpack. You can read more about it here:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-35-master-list?replies=4#post-3547424

    You'll want to look for the function loading jQuery in your theme's header.php file, or in the functions.php file. Once you find that function, you can remove it and enqueue the proper version of jQuery as explained here:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_enqueue_script

    If you do not feel comfortable editing PHP files, you can also contact the theme or plugin author and ask them to solve the issue.

    @erikzett I'd be happy to help, but I would need to know your site URL to be able to investigate further.

    @itssimplemr: your theme is loading two versions of jQuery. You'll need to change your theme and/or fix the theme to use one version of jQuery.

    Tim, thanks. Not interested in changing the theme. Oddly enough, this issue popped up when I applied the upgrade last week. Before that it was functioning fine. Where is the issue, specifically, in header.php or functions.php?

    Glad i am not alone on this. I have now contacted the theme creator and publisher as I have not been able to pin point exactly where the jquery is being loaded and what version. So far they have made it worse and now the homepage slideshow has stopped functioning and my jetpak slideshow still shows the same errors. I have lodged an issue with them and i hope to get it rectified ASAP and advise on the method to fix. Hopefully i can get report back with good news soon.

    This issue seems to have just started happening since we installed WP Total cache today. I don't want to get rid of the plugin without a fair chance, but we've worked really hard on our slideshows, and they are an integral feature of our blog. Now some of them are just gone! Our site is http://turtlestravel.com and one post with an example of a page with broken slideshow is http://turtlestravel.com/dont-skip-gyeongju-south-korea/

    @turtlestravel The slideshow seems to work on my end at the moment.

    If you still experience issues, could you please start your own topic, as per the Forum Welcome, and post some screenshots of how the slideshows look like on your end?

    You can use services like http://snag.gy/ to post pictures here.

    Hi Jeremy and I am hoping you can help. I am having similar javascript problems since installing GoodNews V4. I seem to be the only experiencing this which is why the owner is a bit slow to respond I am sure.

    My site is http://technologyx.com and the issue includes:

    1. Galleries that will not appear (This slideshow requires JavaScript)
    2. The main menu will not expand anywhere but the home screen;
    3. The tabbed 'Popular Posts' widget ONLY works on the home screen; and
    4. The News Ticker only works on the home screen.

    Also, I have been through the process of reinstall several times, disabling all plugins and reenabling, including Jetpack. My browser is firefox and this is same on all browsers and I am using Supercache.

    Would appreciate any help or ideas you can assist with!

    Thanks ahead and I can also be reached at Les (at) thessdreview (dot) com
