    Hey I just updated to the new version and the new wordpress and there's an issue with the gallery slide show, for some reason it slides the first 2 images but not the third it just doesn't show anything as if nothing is there, however if you refresh the page and click on the image thumbnail it shows up, check it out at http://www.punkmilk.com

    Having the same problem. Little help?

    Hi Matt,

    I love this plugin, very clean, Very easy to manipulate the CSS. I'm using the latest 1.4.5 so I can put it in the template.

    I just have one snag, after the second image (even on your personal demo site http://www.mattvarone.com/featured-content/gallery-to-slideshow/) the Image Disappears if you just let it run. Unless the user interacts and interrupts the flow of the script by clicking on another image; if you click to skip, it will run continuously.

    I was trying to debug and see if I could assist in getting it working for everyone, but I figured since you are more familiar with the code, you might know right where to look.

    Thank you Sir for an awesome plugin!

    Since it hasn't been fixed and we're not hearing back I decided to use this plugin instead, it works and runs smoother http://graphpaperpress.com/plugins/gpp-slideshow/

    The answer is it wasn't Matt's code:

    A bug in the file
    /gallery-to-slideshow/tags/1.4.5/js/libs/flexslider/jquery.flexslider-min.js

    it is v1.8

    go download v2.0 @ http://www.woothemes.com/flexslider/

    and replace the file.

    Should work!

  7. i confirm this bug and the fix of twintails
    :-)

    @ichabod1799 the gpp slideshow worked for me, however I couldn't see the thumbnails. Do you see them?

    @dsided you've got to press the thumbnail icon, the 4 squares that appear above the image next to the next button

    Thanks for the fix Twintails, that saved me from having to find another solution.

    @slengteng Yeah, me too; the simplicity of Matt's code and the ability to easily manipulate the style is why I was so tenacious about finding a solution. I just couldn't see anything in his code files that was the root cause.

    I highly recommend the built in Chrome debug tools, the ability to record a timeline as the page loaded was what helped me find that the break was in the "jquery.flexslider-min.js".

    @Twintails Hello! i didn't found the file in the same directory, i've found it in gallery-to-slideshow/js/libs/flexslider and replaced with the one you suggest from your link but the slideshow still stops after slide 2. What i'm doing wrong?
    Thanks!

    @leowys Sorry you are right
    wp-content/plugins/gallery-to-slideshow/js/libs/flexslider
    is the correct directory (I was looking at his build files on his repo)

    I would say verify the "jquery.flexslider-min.js" file you have installed says this at the top
    /*
    * jQuery FlexSlider v2.0
    * Copyright 2012 WooThemes
    * Contributing Author: Tyler Smith
    */

    Then clear cache in the browser and re-load maybe?

    Thanks goodness you figured this out, @Twintails - I was really relying on this plugin and thanks to you I don't have to find an alternative.

    clear your cache?

    If not, I would inspect the page in your favorite debug-tool and check if you have any other script nodes pulling in flexslider for any other plugins that load after the g2s flexslider.

    Did clear the cache, no luck. I'm afraid I'm no good with codes.

    yes it looks as though yours is still loading the previous flexslider

    wp-content/themes/sksmatt-Digital-Store-94830de/js/inc/jquery.flexslider-min.js

    Just go grab the most up to date "flexslider-min.js" as outlined in the earlier posts.

    replace it in your plugin folder ---> replace the v1.8 with the latest

    clear cache and reload.
