Support » Plugin: Portfolio Slideshow » Slideshow won't work… jQuery? or cycle?

  • Resolved songfaerie



    I’m trying to work this out on my own, but it doesn’t seem to help when I disable the jquery or cycle in the plugin settings. I’m a little new to building WP sites, so please be patient. 🙂 My gallery is at
    Can you tell me what that problem is and if it is fixable?

    I am wondering if it is something to do with the below, but I don’t know how to fix it.

    Q: Why isn’t my slideshow loading?

    A: If you can see the first slide, but clicking doesn’t do anything, this is often caused by a jQuery library conflict. View the HTML source of the page which is supposed to show the slideshow. Do you see more than one copy of jQuery or the Cycle plugin being loaded? This plugin uses the wp_enqueue() function to load the necessary javascript libraries, which is the generally accepted way to do it. If your theme or other plugins load those same files directly, you will have a conflict.

    Try disabling other plugins and switching to the default theme and see if that fixes the problem. You may need to get in touch with the author of that plugin to make sure they are loading jQuery correctly.

    One other problem that I’ve seen is the missing “cycle” plugin. View your source to see if “jquery.cycle.all.min.js” is being loaded. If not, make sure your theme has the line in footer.php, which is where the cycle script is loaded. All themes should have this line, but every once in a while it goes missing.

    Hi Songfaerie,
    The music player plugin you’re using is causing a conflict:

    Try deactivating it and see if the slideshow works. If so, you’ll need to get in touch with the developer of that music player and ask them to troubleshoot.
