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 uploaded the 4.0 mini slide show scripts to a /js/ folder on my website. Permissions are 755, if that makes a difference.
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.
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:
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?
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.
