    i'm trying to use this plugin as a featured content gallery, however i can't figure out how to make the links of the images go to various posts instead of to the image location.

    any ideas? or is this possible? thanks

    Are you using images from the WordPress Image Gallery of a post/page? or are you using Manage Slides? Manage Slides (although having some issues) is better for a featured content gallery, just use the 'use link' button when you're editing the image and add the href you want the image to link to.

    Otherwise you'll need the Full Edition for whatever you feel like donating (check out the main site for the plugin) and whatever you put in the caption field will then be where the image is linked to. If you go this way every image sent to the slideshow will need an address in to the caption field in order to work.

    Hope that helps!
    Cheers

    PS- I'm working on a manual to make this whole concept a bit easier to understand.

    I was using images from a post/page not from manage slides because i could not get it to work.

    I tried to use the following:
    <?php if (class_exists('Gallery')) { $Gallery = new Gallery(); $Gallery -> slideshow($output = true); } ?>

    but it would not work
    I added this "slideshow($output = true, $post_id = 638); }" to get something working.

    could you please tell me what the exact code is to get the custom slideshow to work. Thank you for your help and a great plugin :)

    Try throwing in a post_id = null, post_id needs to be declared for the php-hardcode to work. Hope that works!

    i tried that again and but to no avail. It just doesn't show up. I've looked in firebug but can't find any specific issue....

    any ideas? thanks

    does the code have to be within the loop?

    or does one of the other versions work with the custom gallery? thanks for your help again.

    The code doesn't have to be in the loop. I put some more documentation into the Manual from the last time we talked. Let me know if everything is fixed with the latest versions:
