WordPress Slideshow Gallery v1.1.1

We are glad to announce that we released a long-awaited update for the WordPress Slideshow Gallery plugin last week and it has been available in the WordPress.org plugins directory since.

This release was prepared with several bug fixes and some great new features to make your slideshow gallery management even easier than before.

You can read the full release notes on the WordPress.org plugins directory. Let me tell you more about the highlights of this release:

Fix/Feature Highlights

Thickbox Image Overlay

The Thickbox image overlay will show slide links (which link to images) in an overlay on the current page. This feature can easily be turned On/Off in the Configuration of the plugin.

Image Upload for Custom Slides

You can now upload your custom slide images in the ‘Manage Slides’ section. The predecessor of the plugin didn’t have this feature and only allowed a URL/link to an image when creating custom slides.

Cross Browser Compatibility

We have tested the Slideshow Gallery plugin in all major browsers and came to the conclusion that it is now fully cross browser compatible.

There was a bug with the slide links in IE (Internet Explorer) which made the slide links useless to IE users which we fixed. Additionally, we improved the loading of thumbnails where there was an issue in certain browsers like Chrome and Safari.

Great Downloads Statistics

There has been over 1000 new downloads of the WordPress Slideshow Gallery plugin since its release last week which is a positive sign.

Since the initial and very first release of the Slideshow Gallery plugin there has been almost 29,000 downloads to date.

These statistics make us very happy and feel that we are able to provide many people with a useful WordPress slideshow solution.

    Hi, great plugin. Thanks. Questions:

    1. How do you make the crossfade transition, instead just fading out and pop out?
    2. I wanna know how to use ‘scroll right’ or ‘scroll left’ effects?

    Again, thanks 🙂

  9. padma on July 18, 2012

    I am able to see the slideshow but I am not able to see the thumnails neither at the top nor at the bottom. I have downloaded it today so have the latest version.

  10. D on July 13, 2012

    Just upgraded my version and all my old slideshows are broken. I’ve been using [slideshow] to show all the pics associated with a post. I guess this doesn’t work anymore? When I try to specify the post my id it isn’t working. I’m going to try to find the older version.

    • Antonie Potgieter on July 16, 2012


      Please change [slideshow] to [slideshow post_id="X"] where X is the ID of each post/page accordingly.

    Really happy with the plugin, thanks for making it available.
    Just wondered if you had an answer for Morten T. January 25, 2012 at 4:20 am – Is it possible to give other users abillity to edit slideshows? Right now it is only administrators who can make any changes to it.

    I would really appreciate being able to enable this for Editors of my site.

    Is it possible to give other users abillity to edit slideshows? Right now it is only administrators who can make any changes to it.
    I have tried to make it possible with User Role Editor WordPress plugin, but I guess I will have to make some changes in the slidegallery code to make it work? Any clues?

    Thx in advance – and thx for an awesome plugin!!!!

  17. Morten T. on December 16, 2011


    I run WP 3.3 and I can get the slideshow to show up if I implement the PHP code in the index.php, but i can not get it to show up if I put it into page/posts with [slideshow]. how come? I use it here: http://www.ekolab.dk

  18. Mike W on November 14, 2011

    We’ve been using the slideshow on our site and just noticed that the slideshow isn’t resizing the images properly – they are displayed in the proper size in the slideshow, but the full sized images are downloading instead of the sized ones?

    In the ‘uploads’ folder, there are the various thumbnail sizes being generated, but the slideshow doesn’t seem to be using them? Any ideas what might be going on?

    Thanx in advance,
    Mike W

  19. Hellstar on October 17, 2011

    Please add to next version the random displaying feature as well…

  20. tanim on September 25, 2011

    this is very good plugin also very user fiendly. but sir, i cannt show any thumbnails in my slideshow but sliding images.

    whats the problem, please help./ thanks

  21. seris on September 22, 2011

    Hi, great job. Just a question. I want different slides in different pages how can i achive that?


  22. Andrew on July 26, 2011

    Hi there! First off, thank you for making this plugin available to us! The only issue that I’ve been noticing is that no matter what I do with the CSS file there is always a very thin dark line along the left side of the slideshow. I already checked to see if it was a border but it’s not… I also tried changing all the border colors to white and no matter what this thin black/dark grey line remains on the left of the images. I added a padding to the slideshow wrapper and the line on the left seems to stay only the height of the actual image… Any idea what’s causing this? It seems to appear with the image but when I view the actual image there is no dark line…

  23. Kevin on July 15, 2011

    Great Plugin!
    I’ve just recently had a problem with my configiration, my gallery
    size is 705 x 240 and I cant get my fit properly. All my images are the correct size but they still wont fit the full size of the gallery.
    please help..

  24. Robert Piller on June 27, 2011

    Beautiful plugin, thank you. Unfortunately, I just upgraded to WordPress 3.1.3 and my Sildeshow Gallery v1.1.1 got messed up! Instead of spanning the full width of the header, it sits on the left, past the left edge of the main content area. Please help asap! Thank you.

    • Antonie Potgieter on June 27, 2011

      @Robert, best is to submit a ticket with a link and possibly WordPress login details as well. Without seeing your site it is hard to tell what the problem is. You can submit a ticket here: http://tribulant.com/support/ . All the best, Antonie Potgieter

  25. sailen on March 15, 2011

    It fine.But i want to include same thing multiple time in same page.How can i do this?

  26. Chris on March 14, 2011

    I have only 3 images in my current slideshow and the first image does not appear in the rotator below. I’m not sure of the issue.

  27. Jesse on March 4, 2011

    Love this plugin but for some reason the slideshow is not working in IE8 or IE9beta on Win machines. Works great in all other browsers. Any ideas? I reinstalled the plug in with no change.

  28. Andy on February 26, 2011

    Hi Antoine,

    Any idea why I might be having the refresh problem described in a comment above (Feb 7th)?

    Your plugin is exactly what I’m looking for…

    Thank you!


  29. sugar on February 23, 2011

    Please help! How do I change the background behind the images? I don’t want it to be black.

    Besides: great Plugin!

    • Antonie Potgieter on February 23, 2011


      You can achieve this with CSS.
      You can edit the “slideshow-gallery/css/gallery-css.php” file according to your needs.

      All the best,

  30. DMC on February 17, 2011

    Looks like a great plugin, but when I try to add a slide, the management page refuses to upload the image.

    I get the error message:

    “Image could not be moved from TMP to “wp-content/uploads/”, please check permissions”

    Permissions are set to 777…

    • DoctorG on September 1, 2011

      Hi DMC, if it’s not too late, I found that all you need to do is to add the /upload/ directory and then it allows you to add the pictures.

      I just need to work out how to actually get the slider working. I put the [slideshow] into the page, there’s nothing. I am using WP v3.2.1??

  31. Sohaila McKee on February 9, 2011

    Hi Antonio,
    Thanks for your reply.

    Links and Images overlay is on ‘Yes’ in configuration.

    I’m not a coder, Firebug console and Safari console is not something I could deal with. Is there an easier way within the plugin I could fix this?

  32. Sohaila McKee on February 9, 2011

    Using 1.1.1 version of slideshow gallery – ‘Open images in Thick box Overlay’ does not work in Safari 5.0.3 and Firefox 3.6.13. I have not tested it in IE yet.
    Is there a fix for this? I do hope there is.

    Otherwise the plugin is great, although the ‘Read me’ could be a bit more detailed.

    • Antonie Potgieter on February 9, 2011


      If Thickbox doesn’t work, did you ensure to enable this setting under Slideshow > Configuration of the plugin? Also, please check Firebug console or Safari console to see if there are Javascript errors that may cause this. There could be a Javascript conflict.

      All the best,

  33. Andy on February 7, 2011

    Hi Antoine,

    Great plugin! Thanks so much for your work! Question for you – this version seems to have a refresh problem, now verified on multiple browsers and computers. It seems that when transitioning from a larger file to a smaller file, that the larger file is still visible underneath the “current” and smaller file. Seems like the stage isn’t being cleaned before displaying the new slide? Can anyone else confirm?

    Unfortunately, it makes this awesome plugin mostly unusable for varying size material.

    Thanks again!

  34. Mori on January 27, 2011

    m having the same issue as Theresa and t3true. IT cuts the photo in shown slide in half. It apparently only happens in firefox though. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

  35. Carlos Colon on January 25, 2011

    When i use the [slideshow custom=1] the slides do not appear. The box is completly black.
    I’m using vesion 1.1.1. same thing happened with version 1.0.5.

    How can i fix this?

  36. Merlin Mason on January 8, 2011

    Is there anyway to get 2 of these running on the same page?

    I’m trying to pull a couple of galleries into the homepage but only the first one will function. Any help is greatly appreciated!


    • Antonie Potgieter on January 12, 2011

      @Merlin, Unfortunately it is not currently possible to run 2 slideshows on the same page, only 1 per page.

    • swanriver on July 30, 2012

      Has anyone figured out how to get more than one slideshow on a page or post? I would sure like to know if you have. Thanks!

  37. Irene on December 15, 2010

    Is there any way I can remove the thin white border around each image in the slideshow?

    Thank you for the wonderful plugin! It’s so easy to use and loads very quickly.

  38. t3true on December 5, 2010

    I’m having the same centering problem. I hope its not because I upgraded to WP 3.02? This kind of stuff makes you not want to upgrade anything!

  39. Johnny on November 29, 2010


    The “Auto Slide” on and off radio buttons do not work. I tried to turn it off but it is still doing the auto slide.

  40. Theresa Stacy-Ryan on November 28, 2010

    …in the meantime… I had a copy of the older version of the plugin and just overrode the upgrade on this site until I hear back from you on how to control placement and caption styling.

    Thank you,

  41. Theresa Stacy-Ryan on November 28, 2010

    In WordPress, updated slideshow to 1.1.1. Now all the slideshows are no longer CENTERED in the post, as they had been, and I can’t seem to apply a align center nor a align (threw the images to half-way off in the slideshow window!) How can I center them?

    Also, the new caption (default?) font is large and not styled to the site. How can I control the style of the caption font?

    Please help! Thank you,
