Support » Plugin: Slideshow » It took awhile, but now Slideshow works!



    With the help and persistence of Stefan, I was able to finally troubleshoot and correct a pesky problem I had earlier with not being able to change the default width of the slideshow.

    I had to learn the hard way that if a slideshow is created with a default of ZERO (the widest width of your page box), then you cannot change the slideshow width to any smaller pixel size.

    My only next challenge is to re-create all my other slideshows using this new knowledge to adjust the widths.

    My next step will be to find out how to re-align the whole slideshow box to a center position on the page, versus the hard left indent it presently is set at.

    I’m terribly sorry you feel this way about the slideshow plugin. The maximum width setting is a number of pixels. When the maximum width is set to 0, the slideshow will adjust to the containing element’s width. I’ll put out a more clear description there.

    If the maximum width setting does not work for you at all, I could have another look at your website to see what’s causing the problem.

    Rating my plugin only one star seems a bit harsh, though. Given that you’re saying that I’ve never given any help through the forum: Here, here, and here.

    Best regards,



    I took your cue and re-wrote my evaluation to a five star!

    I will soon be re-setting the sizes of my other slideshows accordingly.

    NEXT: I need to learn how to re-set the indent to CENTER or RIGHT side of page. With the smaller slide box I now use (350 pixel), I have a large void of space on the right side of the page next to the slideshow. Any hints? I’ll check the forum for this subject tomorrow as well. Thanks for helping me get out of this quandry!

    Thank you very much! I’m glad the maximum width setting works now.

    If you want to center the slideshow or place it on the right side of the page instead of the left, you’ll need to create a custom stylesheet. You can figure out how to do so in the FAQ section.

    When editing the custom stylesheet you’ll see a line that looks like this: ‘.slideshow_container { }‘. To center the slideshow, make this line look like this:

    .slideshow_container { margin: 0 auto; }

    To align the slideshow to the right side of the page, make it look like this:

    .slideshow_container { float: right; }

    After either centering the slideshow or aligning the slideshow to the right, save the custom stylesheet and set the slideshow to use it.
