[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Slideshow is not working

  • Hi,

    I use WordPress 3.0.1 as a multiblog system, the newest NextGen Plugin and the newest JW-Image-Rotator.

    In the Nextgen settings at “slideshow”, there is (!) the right path to the Rotator; Nextgen found it by itself, when I click at “search”.

    I have a gallery with 6 images in it, ID=6. The gallery view works perfect at a page, I can see all images!

    Then I would like to show in an article this gallery as a slideshow (same sub-blog of this multiblog system, by the way!) using

    [slideshow id=6]

    But I only see the rotator, no images!

    I have read the FAQs here:
    and I do have
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    in my template!

    The page, where the slideshow does not work, is here:


    (I could suppose, that this is a multiblog problem?
    Because at another website, where I use multiblog, too, another gallery plugin has also problems because of using the right path, because multiblogs have a “blogs.dir” directory and in the gallery script this is not considered.)

    What could be the problem and what can I do, do get the slideshow working? Deactivating all other plugins has not solved it.

  • By the way:

    NextGen Plugin is activate multisite wide and I use version 1.6.2

    And another info:

    I use domain mapping:

    http://my-name.de/blog1/ is mapped to http://blog1.my-name.de!

    Maybe this is important, because Firebug gets an error message, when I try to analyze the page:


    No one an idea how to get a slideshow working at multiblog?

    I just activated multisite and am now having this same issue – the slideshow doesn’t load in a widget or when clicking “view as slideshow” on a page.

    It appears the issue is somehow related to multisite, because when I was not running multisite, it worked with my theme.

    The JW Image Rotator does work with multisite, but due to the JW logo appearing on it, I would really like to have your default slideshow work.

    This is the error that comes up with firebug:
    jQuery(“#ngg-slideshow-0-14-1”).nggSlideshow is not a function
    jQuery(“#ngg-slideshow-0-14-1″).nggSlideshow( {id: 0,fx:”fade”,width:200,height:160,,timeout:5000});
    210</script> </div>

    Even i am having the same issue.

    Getting same error on multiblog.

    Did any tweak solved this problem? If yes can you please let me know..

    Thanks in advance

    I’m having the same problems: Loading gif appears, and no images.
    Important detail: I’m NOT using multiblog
    Firebug reports “.nggSlideshow is not a function” 2 times !

    Hi —

    Having the same issue here. I am NOT using multi-site and the crazy thing is that 4 out of the 6 slideshows I have are working. Two of them just get stuck on the loading gif.

    I have the same problems, also running blog with NextGen Gallery in a Multiblog environment with WP 3.0.3.

    Beyond that I can not change the standard gallery path at the options!?

    I am also having the same problem as the posters above. Has this issue been resolved. This is quite frustrating. IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE!?

    I am unable to get the slideshow to work. The path to my imagerotator file is /wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/ and it has been added to the options in the next gen plugin.

    I get the circling loader that wants to start the slideshow but thats all. I am able to view the picture gallery perfectly. No problems there.

    Any thoughts please



    I am having similar problem with the slide-show works fine in FireFox but all I get in IE7 or IE8 is the loader Image-Rotator.
    WordPress 3.0.1
    NextGen Plugin 1.74

    Anybody have a clue how to fix this????

    I had the same problem. It turned out I had multiple references to jquery because every plugin using jquery was inserting its own link to it in wp_head (in the <head> of your page), thus they were clashing.

    There are some things you can do to fix this. I found this little code snippet which removes all jquery and only inserts only the one you specify:

    put this in your functions.php file:

    /* stop loading multiple jquery scripts by plugins */
    if( !is_admin()){
    wp_register_script('jquery', ("https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.0/jquery.min.js"), false, '1.3.2');

    However, that works if your plugins are properly written. My google calendar plugin was not, and was ignoring this. And for some reason my jquery drop-downs didn’t like it. In the end, I didn’t use this trick. I had to go into my calendar code and remove their reference to jquery. That fixed it. And everything is working now.

    I hope this helps someone.


    PS. Oddly enough, I still have an extra link to jquery (from a different plugin), but things are working fine, so I’m leaving it alone :).
