  • I’ve been using your great plugin for a while now and love it. Have tried all the others and only this one does the job. Thanks so much for making it available to us. However over the past few months I’ve been having some trouble with photos.

    I can add a photo but cannot change the position of it with any precision. When I click the up or down arrows the photo sometimes stays in the same position, sometimes moves, but never as intended. It jumps all over the place. I’m using your plugin in my header for rotating images and always want any new photo I add to be the first to display, but more often than not the new image is added to the bottom of the list and I can’t get it to move to the top no matter what I do. I am using a caching plugin (W3 Total Cache) and am emptying the cache every time I try to move the photos but this does not help.

    I wondered if there is a limit to the number of photos that the plugin can handle. Maybe I am trying to show too many?

    It would also be lovely to have the option to turn images on and off with the click of a button (in other words leave them on the server but select which ones are in the current rotation by making them active).

    I realize you are busy and must prioritize the work that pays but will sincerely appreciate any thoughts or suggestions you may have about the problem with ordering the images.

    Hi there, in theory there is no real limit on how many pictures you can put on. Just the size of you site. The plugin works by loading the images onto the page so as many as a browser can handle which is quite a lot these days.

    Changing the order of the images and being able to disable/enable images would be nice features that shouldn’t be too hard to implement, I’ll look into it.

    As for the positioning, I’m not sure what you mean. There is no option to change the position of the slideshow. It is designed to be moved as 1 object using CSS. You could also move the images within the slideshow about using css. What are you trying to achieve?

    Hi shmish111, and thanks so much for your reply. I probably shouldn’t have used the word “position” because it’s confusing. I meant that I could not get the photos to move up and down in the order by clicking on the up and down arrows. For instance, when I click on an up arrow to the left of a particular photo, sometimes it moves up one slot, sometimes ten slots, sometimes it moves DOWN. I want my newest photos to display first, so after they’re uploaded I try to move them into the top slot but just can’t get the ordering to work by using the arrows. Thanks again for any advice.

    Hmm, I can’t reproduce this myself so first thing’s first, are you using the latest version of the plugin, 1.2? Next, do the entries appear in the wrong order on the gallery admin page or is it just when they are being displayed on the web page?

    Yes, I’m using version 1.2. Interesting process, looking to see if the photos are displayed as shown in the JQuery Featured Content admin page. They are not. The first one shows up fine, then #2 is skipped. As the sequence progresses, it skips #7, 13, 14, 22, 25, 26, 27, 34, & 35. The skipped photos are appended to the end of the rotation after all the others are shown. Appreciate your follow up.

    Have you tried changing the dates on the posts? Their order in the featured content widget is dependent on their date of publication, which can be changed.
