  • I had the same problem – a lot of plug ins and a column of images.

    If you find a good simple slide show like this one please let me know! I’ve gone through about 10 now with no luck. This one in theory does exactly what I want, it just doesn’t work and author is not around.

    Works for me…

    What is the syntax for passing variables in the shortcode?

    mrinternet and lia_leaves: I’m sorry to hear you were having problems with the plugin. The most likely cause I can think of is that one of the other plugins you have activated is loading the jQuery Javascript library directly rather than using the wp_enqueue_script() function. However, it could also be a Javascript conflict with the Nivo Slider script and another script on your site. If you post a link to your site I would be happy to try to find the cause of the problem.

    aregularjoe: A sample shortcode with a number of variables present would look like this:

    [simpleslideshow location="images/home" width="800" height="450" transition_time="100" delay="5000"]

    I just loaded Simple Slide Show and I cannot get it to find my images.
    I get “Error: The image folder does not exist or is unreadable”.

    My shortcode is [simpleslideshow location=”/enter”] and my directory structure is:
    ├── about
    │   ├── enter
    │   ├── wp-admin
    │   ├── wp-content
    │   └── wp-includes

    What am I doing wrong?

    It sounds like the permissions of the “enter” folder might be preventing the plugin from reading the images. Please make sure the folder has its permissions set to at least 755.

    Permissions for the directory are:

    drwxr-xr-x 2 priceweb pg551475 4096 Dec 14 13:47 enter

    Permissions for the files in the directory are:

    -rw-r–r– 1 priceweb pg551475 428909 Dec 14 13:47 enter10.jpg
    -rw-r–r– 1 priceweb pg551475 597117 Dec 14 13:47 enter20.jpg
    -rw-r–r– 1 priceweb pg551475 421698 Dec 14 13:47 enter30.jpg
    -rw-r–r– 1 priceweb pg551475 360342 Dec 14 13:47 enter40.jpg
    -rw-r–r– 1 priceweb pg551475 493154 Dec 14 13:47 enter50.jpg
    -rw-r–r– 1 priceweb pg551475 613503 Dec 14 13:47 enter60.jpg
    -rw-r–r– 1 priceweb pg551475 475203 Dec 14 13:47 enter70.jpg
    -rw-r–r– 1 priceweb pg551475 503069 Dec 14 13:47 enter80.jpg

    This looks OK to me. Am I wrong?

    Your instructions say “Please note: this path is relative to
    your WordPress installation.” What exactly does this mean?
    My wordpress files are in the about directory which is one level
    below the “root” directory for the web site.

    I have resolved my problem.

    I found the answer to my own question about the relative path by inserting
    some temporary code into the plugin source.

    The answer is that the path is relative to the root of the web site.

    I would like to suggest that the lines below [about line 14 or so]

    $html = ‘Error: The image folder does not exist or is unreadable’;

    be changed to

    $html = ‘Error: The image folder at ‘ . $location . ‘does not exist or is unreadable’;

    This will possibly help others with similar problems.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll keep that in mind when updating the plugin.
