    Agreed. I have not received any responses to the many threads I have posted regarding this issue. I was in hopes the creator would have updated his plug-in with 3.5 but he had apparently has moved on and abandoned this widget. If anyone knows a great alternative, please let me know. I use this for 4 sites and am extremely disappointed. I know in the future I will have to choose plug-ins from more reliable sources.

    I too use this widget and came across this (and a couple other) posts while seeking out a solution for this. It seems like a well supported alternative to this plugin is the best way to go (which I have not yet tried to seek out), but in the meantime, I do think I was able to come up with a fix…

    Let me preface this by saying that I am not a Plugin developer and while this does work for me, I am not sure if this is the right way to go about doing this and cannot guarantee it will work with your site/setup:

    1) Open up the smart-slideshow-widget.php file within the plugin folder
    2) Go to line 404
    3) Change this line…

    wp_enqueue_script('jQuery-UI-Effects', WP_PLUGIN_URL . '/smart-slideshow-widget/js/jquery-ui.min.js');

    to this…

    wp_enqueue_script('jQuery-UI-Effects', '');

    It seems that the current plugin is just using an older version of jQuery UI which is what seems to be causing the issues in the backend of WordPress. Making this changed fixed the issues on the backend for me while keeping the plugin itself still functional on the frontend.

    Thanks joshgusa. this worked for my site.



    Thanks Joshguss. I will give it a go. After much research and I did find an alternative plugin for those who might be interested:

    that worked for me too! thanks. my entire site was not working right until i saw this. thanks.

    That worked perfectly for me. Thanks joshguss!

    I think a better way is to use the jQuery scripts that comes with WordPress, so you don’t have to worry (as much) about jQuery version mismatches/mis-syncs.


    (around line: 413)
    wp_enqueue_script('jQuery-UI-Effects', WP_PLUGIN_URL . '/smart-slideshow-widget/js/jquery-ui.min.js');



    At least with the other plug-ins I’m running with the Smart Slideshow Widget, the above edit fixed the Widget Page, Media Library, and Add Media issues.
