I am totally new in WordPress, so maybe (I hope so) it's a small problem.
I succeeded to install the wordpress plugin, entered the key and path but......
the small icon as you describe is not visible.
On the plugins tab I get the message:
WARNING: Your cache directory is not writable. You can't activate caching unless you allow your webserver to write to 'wp-content/plugins/slideshowpro-director-connector/classes/cache'
On the settings tab I see a text SSPDC
Here I see a window where I can fill in formats, but where can I upload images
but in the editor I don't see the upload possibility
and I get the message to install Lightbox 2, but the same problem:
I don't see the icon
Can anyone please help me
