  • I want to insert a slideshow in a post so that is displayed stopped at the first photo, with no custom box, no filmstrip, no breadcrumbs but with a ‘Previous’ and ‘Next’ link.

    I have breadcrumbs turned on at II/1, the custom box turned on at II/21 and the filmstrip turned off at II/9. At IV/3 I have the slideshow set to start ‘still at first photo’. I want to keep this configuration on the rest of my site.

    Is there a way to override the general settings and insert a slideshow in a post and just have it show the slideshow window itself and next and previous links?

    Currently you can only overrule the general settings by %%slideonly=..%% and %%slideonlyf=..%%.

    A more general and flexible solution to overrule general settings is planned for a future version, but will not be available soon.


    My slideshow is not loading. The thumbnail page loads and then when I click on one of the thumbnails I get this error message:

    Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 25690112) (tried to allocate 7752473 bytes) in /web1/user25522/website/wp-content/plugins/wp-photo-album-plus/wppa-filter.php on line 169

    Does this mean there is a limit to the amount of photos you can put into an album?

    I have created another album and it loads fine in slideshow mode. Your assistance is much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    It means that your server has just enough memory available for a small slideshow and not enough memory for a larger slideshow.

    It is a server memory limit. It looks you have 32 mb available while at least 64 mb is recommended.

    Try changing the memory allocation through a php.ini. On shared hosting you often are only allocated 32 megs by default so the first thing you want to do is change that and increase it to 64 or 128 megs. Your hosting company should able to advise you on how to do that, it’s usually pretty simple. Check the help and support section of your hosting solution.

    If your hosting set up is fairly standard and uses a C-panel control system then log in look for the php config control panel. Use it to create a single php.ini for your site (this will be a text file with that name in the root directory).

    Download a copy of the php.ini and open it with a text editor.

    Find the line that says ‘memory_limit = ‘ (minus the quote marks)

    See what the figure after the equal sign is. If it is 32M then change it to 64M

    Upload the edited php.ini replacing the original one.

    See if that helps.

    Thanks guys – once i get a spare moment I will give it a whirl!
