[resolved] [Plugin: Slideshow Gallery] Unable to get images to display (5 posts)

    I have tried both this and the Pro version with no luck.

    I do not see the TinyMCE editor icon - which is fine since I can code it by hand. But even then, I only get the spinning loader.

    I uploaded my images into the Post Gallery (id=214) and inserted the following short code:

    [slideshow post_id="214"]

    ...and I get this:

    I would love to know what I am doing wrong. I attempted to insert the php code into a custom template and got even less in terms of visual results. This slideshow seemed perfect for my needs, but I have spent hours trying to get it to work and am at a dead end.

    Hi there,

    I'm sorry to say that I'm having exactly the same problem as the previous poster. I've installed the plugin and have put [slideshow] in my home page entry code.

    Like the previous poster, all I can see is the spinning loader. I am currently running WordPress 3.0.1. Is this a problem with the version, or is it possible that I'm doing something wrong with configuration?

    Thank you for your message.

    There could be a Javascript conflict causing the slideshow not to load.

    My suggestion is that you install Firebug http://getfirebug.com/ into Firefox or check your Google Chrome console to see if you see any Javascript errors.

    If you post a link here to the site, I can check for you.

    Also, are you sure that you're using our Slideshow Gallery plugin? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/slideshow-gallery/ . There is another one out there which was copied from ours and it may have issues.

    All the best,

    Unfortunately I had to abandon the use of this plugin, however, it came to light that my theme was missing the wp_head function.

    I needed to get this issue resolved quickly, so I do not know if this plugin ever truly worked. Will try again another day. Good luck!

    Yes, your theme missing wp_head was most probably the problem.

    The plugin hooks onto wp_head to insert its Javascript files, the actual Javascript that lets the plugin work so without wp_head in your theme's header.php file there is no way the plugin will work.

    Try it again when you have another project and ensure that the theme has wp_head and it should work as intended.

    Thank you for reporting back!

    All the best,
