Support » Fixing WordPress » [Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Slideshow Not Working in FF & Picture List Not Aligned

  • I’m having 2 problems with ngg, v 0.95 running on WP 2.5.

    1. I can’t get the slideshow to work in Firefox either through the widget or in a page. It keeps spinning on a black screen. Works fine in IE7 and Opera.

    Slideshow widget:
    Slideshow in a page:

    2. The [Show Picture list] view is not always in alignment as seen here. Any suggestions on how to fix it? Example here.

    I have re-uploaded all the ngg plugin files manually but still no joy.

    Thanks for your assistance.

  • Your images are not accesible :

    Example :

    Error 403

    Thanks for taking a look Alex.

    My photo file permissions are set at 0644, directories at 0755. Other photos from the same gallery are accessible such as here and here.

    I’m a newbie at this, so I’d appreciate any suggestions. Just to reiterate, it works in IE7 but not in Firefox. Thanks again.

    I also experience a similar problem, the “standard” show picture widget works well but the slideshow widget only renders a black rectangle.


    i have the same issue. what i also noticed is that if in manage gallery you try to view the photo, it doesnt work.

    1. I’ve managed to fix the slideshow not working in Firefox. I had Hotlink protection enabled through my web host but I didn’t have ‘Allow direct requests (ie. entering the url to an image in your browser)’. Once I ticked that box, the slideshow worked in FF, both in the sidebar widget and on individual pages. You can see an example here. I hope that helps.

    2. The [Show Picture list] view is not always in alignment problem is still unresolved.

    bemused, i didnt understand what you did to sort this. can you explain in layman’s terms. 🙂
    i managed through google to find out i have hotlink protection enabled. but where did u tick that box about allowing direct requests

    i kind of figured it myself. went to cpanel did all that but still not working in FF

    cezarneaga, glad you’ve figured it out :). I’m also a newbie at this. I cleared the browser cache afterwards, you might like to try it (if you haven’t) and see if that works.

    I am having the same problem with the slideshow showing up as black.

    Can anyone share their solution?

    There are some javascript conflicts, disable other plugin for a test


    I tried disabling all the plugins, and the slideshow still came up black. i think it has to do with some other javascript? i deleted some of it and the page said “flash player required and browser with java capabilities needed” but i have have both of those things enabled. so it musy be something else.
