[Plugin: Frontpage-Slideshow] Stop Slideshow displaying in every admin post/page (5 posts)

    Hi
    I am using the front page slideshow plugin

    Is is possible to change settings somewhere and prevent the slideshow options appear on every post or page backend?
    when I am creating a page, the slideshow insert options appear, and every image housed in "uploads" starts loading and takes forever.

    I only use the slideshow on my front page, so is it possible to turn it off, from appearing in every backend page or post?

    Many thanks for any help!

    Hi

    Is is possible to change settings somewhere and prevent the slideshow options appear on every post or page backend?

    Nope. Because every post can be potentially be added to the slideshow.

    I only use the slideshow on my front page, so is it possible to turn it off, from appearing in every backend page or post?

    Again, for the same reason, nope. It is not where you are displaying the slider that determines where the is displayed, but the way the slider works.

    when I am creating a page, the slideshow insert options appear, and every image housed in "uploads" starts loading and takes forever.

    That is not a normal behavior. To prevent this behavior, the images are loaded only if you need it, and only if you click on a link… so either you need to update the plugin to the latest version, or you need to update your wordpress… but I can tell you that it is not the way the plugin works…

    Which plugin version do you use ? WordPress version ? any javascript errors ?

    hi
    thanks for replying
    I am using wordpress 3.0.4 and front page slider 0.8
    i know the slider is a little out of date , but i think it was customized a little bit,
    that might be the problem

    yeah version 0.8 is pretty old and don't wait to load all images… anyway, even if you had customized it a bit, your customizations could be kept latest versions, since the latest uses a theming system backup what you've done, upgrade, then create your theme.

    well i backed up my plugin theme, installed the new one, and then uploaded my changed theme,
    but the buttons for the slider, that were horizontally on the bottom, where now vertically on the right side,
    additionally, the posts were not random, though originally only from a particular section
    obviously, whoever did work on this, really messed things up for me!!
