  • The slideshow is working perfectly in firefox and safari. But not in explorer or on an android phone.

    Android phone – instead of sizing down the main screen in both directions it seems to be only scaling vertically and squashing horizontally.

    Internet Explorer- In your FAQ your wrote:
    Why does Internet Explorer show a big blank space above the slideshow?

    Internet Explorer is a very strict browser, so when a big blank space above your slideshow is showing your page may contain some invalid HTML. Most times invalid HTML is caused by placing the slideshow’s shortcode or PHP snippet into an anchor tag () or paragraph tag (<p></p>), while you can only place a slideshow within a ‘div’ element (<div></div>).

    My question is where do you put this code?
    I tried it on the actual wordpress page. worked in firefox, safari…not IE. same problem.

    If the slideshow’s placed in an element that’s not a ‘div‘ element, it should still display the images correctly even though there would be a white space above or below the slideshow.

    Your problem seems to be caused by something else. Could I please see your website?

    Yes. Thank you for responding.
    You will find the slide on the visiting tab. – It works great in firefox and safari but it does NOT work in Internet Explorer.

    Thanks for including your website.

    I see your slideshow is wrapped in an anchor tag: ‘<a href="">...Your slideshow is here...</a>‘. If you want to link to another page using the slideshow, you should use the ‘URL’ field on the image slides.
