    I might have an idea of what may be causing this. Could I perhaps see your website?

    I’ll activate the plugin at 19:15 (in 10 minutes) for few minutes so that you can have a look at the result. Many thanks in advance.

    That’s great, thanks!

    I’ll let you know if I find anything.

    I see you’re using the W3 Total Cache plugin, which helps pages to load faster by saving the page’s content every couple of hours.

    This may be the reason the slideshow didn’t work after the update, as there’s been lots of changes in the script and the stylesheets.

    Emptying the cache of the W3 Total Cache plugin may solve the problem.

    emptying the cache didn’t help. just deactivated W3 total cache in order to solve this first which is more important to me.

    with this, the issue with the single pics showing up was solved. figured out that you’ve a new function which caused the 2nd remaining problem: proportional relationship default 4:1

    changed it and this problem is fixed too.

    a last issue remains: the slide doesn’t float in the text any longer. Any hint?

    re floating, if the code below is the place to look at, all seems to be alright, innit? but it doesn’t float!

    .slideshow_container {
    float: left;
    margin-right: 60px;
    margin-bottom: 30px;
    }

    In the new version, a lot of HTML has changed. To keep the slideshows from being un-styled after the update, all slideshows were reset to the default ‘Light’ stylesheet.

    The CSS code you showed me should still be in your customized stylesheet, so you’ll need to create a new custom stylesheet and paste the CSS code in there. Then you, of course, have to assign the newly customized stylesheet to the slideshow.

    Stefan, did as advised. If you don’t mind have a look please at the result: float works but margin-right apparently not! Any hint on this? Cheers,

    You did everything right, the slideshow’s functional stylesheet just overrules these margin rules because it’s included at a later point in the page.

    To solve the problem right now, you could make the CSS values look like this:

    .slideshow_container {
    float: left;
    margin-right: 60px !important;
    margin-bottom: 30px !important;
    }

    This lets the browser now that these values should not be overruled.

    Tonight I’m releasing version 2.2.1 though, which will fix this behaviour.
