Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » Slideshow : pictures not in the right order

  • Hi from France.
    You’ll find an example of the issue here :
    Click on the first tab “Modèle 1982” and launch the slideshow.
    Whereas the pictures are sorted right in the thumbnails view, they appear like in shuffle mode when played in the slideshow. I triple-check that the “Shuffle” mode is not activated in Gallery > Gallery Settings > NextGEN Basic Slideshow.
    I tried to desactivate some non essential plug-ins but the problem remains. Before loosing even more hours, can someone confirm me that it’s not a common issue with WordPress 3.7 + NGG 2.0.33 ?
    Best regards.

  • Hi again.
    No one here can just check one of its slideshows to check if the pictures appear in the sorted order, from the first to the last of the gallery when shuffle mode in not activated ?
    Crying on my websites since the NextGEN 2.x upgrade.

    @uscarfrance – I just visited you site and I am not seeing the “Shuffle” mode in effect.

    I also see your theme is over-lapping the lightbox effect you are using as well so you may need to make some adjustments to that for aesthetic reasons.

    – Cais.

    Oh sorry. I desactivated the slideshows this morning because of all my problems with them. I have just reactivated them for you to see the three major issues I encounter after the upgrade from 1.9 to 2.x :
    – the Flash slideshows are playing in shuffle whereas this mode is not activated
    – because there are multiple slideshows embeded in tabs, the slideshow launched is not the slideshow the visitor wants to see
    – on iOS, there’s no fallback from the Flash-based slideshow to just the lightbox (with at least the Previous / Next buttons for a manually controlled slideshow).
    These issues can be seen from

    Also it would be great to be able to desactivate slideshow by slideshow from the shortcode used :
    – the link “Back to thumbnails” on the slideshows which should never appear as basic thumbnails
    – the Flash version of a slideshow that should never use the Flash version because we just want a basic show of successive pictures without any navigation controls.
    To illustrate these two last feature requests, you can go especially to
    In this situation, I don’t need the link and I don’t want nor need the Flash version.
    Best regards and thanks for your support.

    I still have the issue with the shuffle mode applied whatever I configure.
    Here is the shortcode :
    [ngg_images gallery_ids=”140″ flash_enabled=”1″ flash_shuffle=”0″ display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_slideshow”]
    And it is used on this page :
    Also the shuffle mode is desactivated for the slideshows in the plugin settings.
    What can I do ?
    Best regards.

    Also forget about my last feature requests. It can be done directly in the shortcodes.
    Let’s focus on the randomization issue on Flash slideshows.

    Is it just me, or is there not an answer on how to fix this here?
    Someone directed me to this page to fix the Basic Slideshow forced Random in Flash.
