    Hi Ragina,

    You should set the CSS of the slideshow to ‘float’. First, see how you can apply a custom style to a slideshow in the FAQ section. When customizing the stylesheet, add the following:

    .slideshow_container {
        float: left;
    }

    Then give the slideshow a maximum width, so it doesn’t stretch across the width of the page. The slideshow should then be wrapped in text.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Hey Stefan,

    Thanks for your quick reply. It works. However, the text and slides are tight together. How can i add some spaces between them? I mean increase the margin between slideshow and the text on the right side.

    Hi Ragina,

    Spaces between elements can be added by using the margin value, more information here.

    Using the example code I mentioned above, in combination with the margin used in your example, would look like this:

    .slideshow_container {
        float: left;
        margin: 10px 10px 10px 0;
    }

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Thanks!!!

    Hi,

    I’d like to customize my slideshow – great plugin! – the same way, but I failed.

    The default setting is:

    .slideshow_container { } .slideshow_container a { text-decoration: none; }

    I added the code mentioned above to this result:

    .slideshow_container { float: left; } .slideshow_container a { text-decoration: none; }

    But as a pity, the slideshow isn’t surrounded. Actually, nothing happened.

    Where did I go wrong?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Ponnuki,

    Have you already set the slideshow’s style setting to use the custom stylesheet you created?

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Wow,

    what a simple click – and what a result!

    You’re my man, thanks a lot, Stefan! ;o)

    All the best,

    I love this slider so much and that just made it even better.

    Hi, I am baffled. I am trying to wrap text around the slideshow, but nothing seems to work.

    Neither the “Custom Styles” nor the “Default Slideshow Settings” tabs work in the General Settings area of the plugin.

    The slideshow works fine, but I cannot wrap the text, and I really need to do this. I have added the

    .slideshow_container {
        float: left;
    }

    to style.css (it’s a free template) and to another custom css file, and both times the images disappeared, but the Next and Previous Slide buttons showed up both times.

    I guess the main question is: Why don’t the “Custom Styles” and the “Default Slideshow Settings” buttons work properly?

    WordPress Version 3.5.1
    Slideshow Version 2.2.10
    Firefox
    Chrome

    Many thanks!

    Hi,

    It sounds like you’re setting your slideshow’s settings on the ‘Default Slideshow Settings’ tab. However, this is only for newly created slideshows. Not for existing ones. Settings of existing slideshow need to be altered on the same page you assign images to the slideshow.

    Best regards,
    Stefan
