So Responsive! So Customizable! So Modern! Build Slideshows, Flipbooks, and do Infinite Scrolls with Slideshow Satellite.

I am having some issues with my plugin, whats a good first look?

Start with 'Reset to Defaults' on the top of your plugin configuration page.

Still having some major issues, next?

You may be dealing with a conflict with your theme or other plugins. To really test, if it works with Twenty-Eleven theme and no other plugins active it's a conflict.

It's not that serious, just a little funky

Oh, well have you checked out the Manual? http://bit.ly/stlmanual

How can I display the slideshow in a sidebar as a widget?

Install the plugin Advanced Text Widget and put the embed code in there. We would suggest using the Premium Edition as you can specify width and height in the embed.

All the images show up on the page, this ain't no slideshow!!! Oh, and I'm running the slideshow through the template in PHP or through another plugin

The slideshow isn't loading your JS or CSS most likely! That's because the plugin doesn't know it's being called. It's looking for the [satellite reference and not seeing it. [satellite display=off] in an area being called by the loop on that page or just going to Advanced Settings and turn 'Shortcode Requirement' to off.

I'm seeing a non-stop loading icon on the page

You're most likely dealing with some javascript weirdness. Check using Firebug and ask for help in the forums. Your theme or another plugin might be working improperly with Satellite

Can I display/embed multiple instances of Slideshow Satellite?

Yes you can, but you have to have the Premium Edition

What if I only want captions on some of my pages

Set your default captions to off; for any slideshow you put on your page use [satellite caption=on] - Captions can also be set at the Gallery level

How do I find the numbers to exclude (or include)?

Not as easy as it used to be! Go into the Media Library. Choose an image you want to exclude and click on it and notice your address bar: "/wp-admin/media.php?action=edit&attachment_id=353". Therefore, [satellite exclude=353]

What sizes can my thumbnails be?

For WordPress Image Gallery the max is 100, for the Custom Galleries the max is 150 pixels. The thumbnail must be at least 10 pixels.

How do I show multiple galleries on a single page in a tabbed view?

If you have the premium edition and multiple custom galleries setup do this [satellite gallery=5,3,4,8] and they will display in that order

The slideshow loads a little funky, I fear it's the theme

With premium edition, you can load the plugin after the theme loads by using the splash screen [satellite gallery=2 splash=on]

Premium Questions

My plugin breaks when I install the premium version

Many times this has to do with how it was uploaded... Delete all the slideshow-satellite files from your plugins directory (this can be done by clicking 'Delete' from the Plugin Page menu) Then use the Plugin Page -> Add New -> Upload -> to upload the slideshow-satellite.zip file

You may also want to "Reset Configuration" from the Configuration page
