    Hi,

    Yes, you can add a slideshow to a post or page using the shortcode provided when creating or editing a slideshow. The shortcode looks someting like ‘[slideshow_deploy id=1]‘, ‘id’ has to be numeric.

    So, yes. You have to create a slideshow first, which you can re-use as many times as you’d like. A slideshow does not show up to the public as a post or page does, it has to be called by shortcode, PHP code piece or as widget.

    I hope that helps!

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Hi
    I have created two slideshows but can’t get them to show on the page.
    I have used the code given ( see below)
    <?php do_action(‘slideshow_deploy’, ‘4200’); ?>

    I can’t get anything to show on the site?
    I am putting the code on the html page?
    Can you help?

    Hi,

    If you, as you just mentioned, are trying to put it into a page (or post), you should use the shortcode. The shortcode can also be found on the slideshow settings page. The piece of PHP code can only be used in your theme’s PHP files.

    If you’re already doing this correctly, yet nothing’s showing up, it could be that 4200 is not the ID of the slideshow. Version 2.1.16 will fix the issue with using non-existent ID’s and will probably be released tomorrow.

    Otherwise, could you put the code on your page again and point me to the page you’re trying to place the slideshow? I wasn’t able to find the page you were trying this on.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Hi
    Thank you for the speedy reply –

    I have added this code on the html page
    [slideshow_deploy id=4200]
    This is for the HOME page of the site http://weegiewednesday.org/

    I want the slideshow to appear just below the intro links under ” See what goes on at Weegie Wednesday”.

    I would be so happy to have your help with this as I have another slideshow I want to put on another page too.

    I tried to add as a widget just to see if it would work but that didn’t work either. (I don’t want it as sidebar widget)

    Hi,

    I see you’re doing everything right, the slideshow is being output correctly to the page. The reason that none of the slideshows appear, is that there’s a javascript error on your page.

    The error is caused by a script called ‘flightbox’. I believe this script is printed by the Flickr plugin, disabling the Flickr plugin will probably solve your problem.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Thank you so much.
    The slideshow is working fine now.
    You are a wee star!
