Not compatible
By , for WP 3.9

Hello Antonie,

I don't think the plugin is fully compatible. Specifically you are using mysql_real_escape_string which is deprecated and not the WP way of escaping params. I have updated db.php to use esc_sql() instead, which makes it work with recent versions of mysql again.

Have to re-upload images
By , for WP 3.9

As far as I can tell, there is no way for Slideshow Gallery to use images that I've already uploaded to the site, except by typing in the url for the image. You also can't upload a bunch of slides at once. It's a pity, because otherwise this seems like a good plugin for me, because I'd like to be able to have multiple slideshows on one page.

Could use a few things to be great
By , for WP 3.5

I have tried this slider but it doesn't suite my needs due to it's lack of certain customizations and little things like the thumbnails not working.

I have tried this slide on two different sites both with no other plugins activated that could cause conflicts and on both the thumbnail images do not show up. Also, if set to a white background there is no way to alter the background of the thumbnail navigation arrows. If the background is white the background of the nav should be white as well, at least in my opinion.

It would be nice if there was a resize option for images as well on upload so that they fit proportionally into the set width/height of the gallery.

As a developer I would also like to have easy access to the CSS to modify layout options.
