I have gallery2 installed and it has been working great! I'm in the process of migrating my site from Wordpress to Joomla v2.5.6. Nothing I do seems to work. Joomla won't let me put script code into an article or a module. If I put the code into a template file, it works great, but the slideshow is not in the location that I won't. And this solution isn't very flexible.
How can I get the slideshow to run within a joomla article or module? Any help would be appreciated very much!
I've never used Joomla, but seems there was a plugin to allow scripts called Sourcerer or similar.
Or google it.
Installing the Sourcerer extension for Joomla solved the problem.
I've uploaded the 4.0 mini slide show scripts to a /js/ folder on my website. Permissions are 755, if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance.
the most common issue is when jquery is included in the page more than once.
is there a link to your page?
Also your rss feed url is wrong it should be
a good tip for loading jquery only if it is not already included is to call your local copy:
I really appreciate your trying to help. I'm still being dense. I used the code you gave me, but it's still not working. Am I supposed to have other code on the page related to the script? Or was that all I needed.
getting close try:
Yes!! Thanks sooo much! It's working!
Is there an advantage doing it with the above code rather than the embed code from the embed o rator?
the embed o rator code works fine inside of my joomla install 2.5.9. minislideshow. 4. gallery 3.0.4
However I couldn't get the above code to run. just the spinning load icon. Is it because my gallery 3 is remote? Here is what I tried.
I'm just a hack. sorry. I get the spinning icon with rest as well. enabled the rest module in g3
you need to enable guest access in Admin -> Settings -> Advanced -> [rest] [allow_guest_access ] = 1
thanks. that might be one of the easiest embeds around.
This was giving me fits! Trying to use MiniSlideShow on a different server from my gallery. Followed the example in this thread, but I couldn't get it to work for hours. Finally, with the help of FireBug, figured out that I needed this URL:
instead of this one:
So everything is going along fine, but I can't make a mini for the last album. I had 5 minis on a webpage and it was the 5th one that wouldn't run. So I broke it out into a temporary file, but it still doesn't run. The only thing I can think of that might be causing a problem is that there are only 2 photos in the album. Could this be the problem?
Here's my original page:
And here's the temp file I created for testing purposes:
So the problem was just having 2 photos. It may even have been having only 2 photos in the album at any time, because I think when I added photos it still didn't work. Not sure, though, as I tried a lot of different things - deleting the album and starting over, adding the photos to a working album and then deleting all but the two I wanted, etc, etc. Solved the problem by adding the same two photos twice (all at the same time), so now it has 4 photos, but only two different photos.
Great little slideshow, btw. Used the other one for many years on a few sites. It does get my computer pretty riled up, though. When I have 5 slideshows running on that one page it's taking up about 30% of my CPU (safari) and gets my fan running on my MacBook Pro. Even with the temp file - just one mini with 4 pics - FireFox was grabbing up to 40% of the CPU. And my MacBook is only about 1.5 years old.
It looks like the target option isn't working.
I don't see where you are trying to use the target option.
Sorry. Reported about the target option after trying it out on another site. I did a quick search through the JS file and there's only on occurrence of target and it doesn't look like it's processed in any way. Trying to use the target option in conjunction with altlink.
minislideshow.4.0.js line 185:
New version up, test it and let me know.
Just tried 4.0.2. Didn't even get to test the target parameter as there was an error:
[09:46:33.617] SyntaxError: missing ; before statement @ http://mydomain.ca/js/jquery.minislideshow.4.0.min.js:8
Wasn't able to easily fix the error.
does the un-minified version work?
