[resolved] [Plugin: Slideshow Gallery] 1.2 Broke My Slideshow - All images now blank? (44 posts)

    Hi,

    The old gallery script was working great for me.

    I just updated to 1.2 and now none of the images are showing up.
    In the Manage Slides admin I get broken image symbols whether I link to or upload any images, and no images when viewing the slideshow either.

    I only use the slideshow on the frontpage on of my site at http://goo.gl/CFRgQ but now it just shows a white block with a spinning loading graphic.

    I only have one slideshow (Homepage with id=1) and am calling it through the theme use

    <?php if (function_exists('slideshow')) { slideshow($output = true, $gallery_id = "1", $post_id = false, $params = array()); } ?>

    How did you include timthumb with the plugin? I take it you're using the secure v2.0? Would it matter that I am already using timthumb elsewhere in my theme - could there be a conflict?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm having an issue as well. I just updated the plugin and now the slideshows are not working

    To fix the problem of the no-image symbol appearing in the admin you need to create a new directory at

    yourdomain.com/wp-content/uploads/slideshow-gallery/cache and CHMOD 755

    Then you need to open up timthumb.php which is under vendors and change the FILE_CACHE_DIRECTORY on line 45 to ../../../uploads/slideshow-gallery/cache

    I haven't had any luck with the actual slideshow yet...

    I have the spinning logo with my slideshow as well. Is there no fix from the developers on this? Am I using the wrong code?

    <?php if (function_exists('slideshow')) { slideshow($output = true, $gallery_id = false, $post_id = false, $params = array()); } ?>.

    i have this problem too, no slideshows...

    also there's an error on firefox's error console, something like

    jQuery('.colorbox').colorbox is not a function

    when i deactivate the slideshow plugin, this error is gone, so i think it's the part of the slideshow plugin.

    Good day,

    @ primitivenet, Thank you for posting this.

    @ cjones2989, The code is fine. Do you see any errors in your console?

    @ selera, Does your theme have the wp_head() tag in it's header.php file to load the needed scripts?

    All the best,
    Antonie

    Error: jQuery(".colorbox").colorbox is not a function

    yes, there's wp_head()
    i think these ones are slideshow plugin related

    <link rel='stylesheet' id='colorbox-css' href='http://indosurflife.com/wp-content/plugins/slideshow-gallery/css/colorbox.css?ver=1.3.19' type='text/css' media='all' />

    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://indosurflife.com/wp-content/plugins/slideshow-gallery/js/gallery.js?ver=1.0'></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    jQuery('.colorbox').colorbox({maxWidth:'100%', maxHeight:'100%'});
    });
    </script>

    For the images not appearing...
    You can also open "slideshow-gallery/vendors/timthumb.php".
    Make the value of FILE_CACHE_DIRECTORY empty (no value).

    @selera, This might be a bug/problem. The solution is to turn on the images lightbox/thickbox under Slideshow > Configuration. We'll upload a new build of the plugin to sort this asap.

    All the best,
    Antonie

    @selera, A new build was uploaded to fix the Colorbox issue. Sorry for the inconvenience caused by this.

    @stevesbt, A new build was uploaded so it can serve Timthumb cache for the images from your server's temporary directory. Please re-download and try.

    All the best,
    Antonie

    Hi Antonie,

    Thanks for the replies.

    Turning on the lightbox/thickbox overlay seems to do the trick - thanks!

    When the update appears live I'll give that a go and report back.

    Thanks again!

    Sorry it seems we are still having issues. All seems to work fine with chrome but not IE or FF?

    Any ideas?

    I did the thick box overlay in configuration and I still seem to have the issue. I now have the box appear (which was a rotating load logo before) but my images are X'ed out and even when I try to add a new slide or edit the picture of the slide, nothing changes this from appearing this way.

    The update killed my slideshow. I get a blank space where the slideshow used to be - and it is on my homepage!

    HELP!

    @Antonie,

    That thickbox tick seemed to fix it for Chrome, but just like @stevesbt the slideshow is blank in Firefox and IE.

    I've submitted a support ticket.

    Thanks for investigating!

    Blank for Chrome and FF

    After Antonie kindly looking into my installation, it appears that the slideshow not appearing in FF and IE was down to me not properly clearing my W3 Total Cache and CloudFlare cache.

    All is now working - thank guys!

    @kfoo1 what's your URL?

    How are you calling the slideshow? In a post or page via a shortcode? Via your templates? What exact code are you using?

    Is the plugin working in the wp-admin? Can you see the thumbnails?

  25. kfoo1

    I am using the shortcode on my WordPress theme homepage.

    I am not using thumbnails, just a slideshow scrolling through images.

    This is the code:
    <?php if (class_exists('Gallery')) { $Gallery = new Gallery(); $Gallery -> slideshow($output = true, $post_id = 1426); } ?></div>

    I'm not sure what you mean by "is the plugin working in the wp-admin?"

    The code you give above is the full php that should be in your templates, not within a page, you've also got a closing div without an opening div there...

    By "in the wp-admin" I mean that when you login to your WordPress back-end, there is a menu item on the left called Slideshare that is where you add the slides/images. Does this work ok for you? Can you add images? Do the images upload properly?

    Also, are you using the latest version of WordPress?

    This is within a template. Our homepage is a unique page that in our custom theme. I quickly cut that bit of code so I must have cut of a div...

    I don't have a menu item called "Slideshare", just "Slideshow"

    I am pulling images from a post that I have left as draft.

    The slideshow was working fine until the update, then it went blank. We had been running it for a few months.

    We are using the latest version of WP.

    Thanks

    Sorry, I meant "Slideshow" - good you have that working.

    How else are you using jQuery in your site?
    Is your theme calling wp_head() and wp_footer() properly?

    Truth be told, I don't really know. We are running another slide show for different functionality: Portfolio Slideshow, but the two were running with no issues before.

    Are you aware of any conflict with Google Analytics Plugins? This is the only other change, besides the update, that was made to the site.

    I don't know about all Google Analytics plugins, but I'm using Google Analytics for WordPress by Joost and it's working fine.
