Support » Plugins » [Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Slideshow issue in IE

  • Great plugin, love it, but when it comes to IE it makes my life miserable.

    So here is the site. The slideshow is in the sidebar, works as expected in all browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari), but in IE it won’t work. For a while I got nothing but a loading sign, but after some work I now get the first slide and an error:

    Webpage error details

    Message: Invalid argument.
    Line: 144
    Char: 219
    Code: 0

    Anyone who could help out?

  • I don’t see any issue with IE8 , if it’s still at your side, please swicth to default theme and check the behaviour again.

    There is an obvious issue with the slideshow
    strange how other people seem to be only having issues in IE

    I cannot get the slideshow to work in IE8, FireFox or Google Chrome.
    Not only will it not load for the site I am working on but the nextgen demo site is doing exactly the same thing for me both for the sidebar and main page at:

    I also checked some of the other sites I found in other threads complaining about the slideshow and yes I havent seen a working one yet.

    On my PC I Just get a spinning logo in all 3 of those browsers, all of them are up to date, flash is up to date..

    This seems to be popping up in several threads but there seem to be some common issues about browser compatibility.

    I’m using NextGen slideshow with Atahualpa 3.3.2. My site works fine with every other browser but the slideshow alignment goes wrong in IE. It should show a block of text on the left of screen and the slideshow on right. In IE the slideshow is in the right position but the text block gets pushed down and then fills the width below the images.

    I suspect the float value in nggallery.css line 260 may have something to do with it but I have no idea how to fix this. Is it something like some versions of IE don’t know how to respond to the slideshow float commands but the other browsers do?

    I’d be most grateful for any help with this.

    I have the same problem. The slideshow won’t load in IE. It loads when I view it from the dashboard in Edit Page, but not when I open it from the blog. It also loads fine from the blog when I open it in Firefox.

    I had the same problem. I fixed it by replacing the code
    jQuery( img ).bind('load', function() { appendImage(img, num); });
    appendImage(img, num);
    in files wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/js/ngg.slideshow.js and wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/js/ngg.slideshow.min.js

    This fix has the drawback that it won’t wait until the first image has completely loaded when it starts to load the next one.
    That might cause a problem on some really slow web servers or with very big images but worked fine for me.
