Problem: NextGen Gallery slideshow not displayed!

I have installed NextGen Gallery and I have been able to display galleries. However, when I tried the slideshow, nothing appeared on the page.

1. Download imagerotator package from the link provided in Gallery/Options/Slideshow in the Dashboard.

2. Upload the content of the downloaded folder imagerotator into wp-content/uploads. Remember all the files should be in wp-content/uploads, NOT in wp-content/uploads/imagerotator. I know they said you can upload it to wp-content/uploads or a subfolder, but I tried with the subfolder option and it didn’t work.

3. Go back to Gallery/Options/Slideshow in the Dashboard, and click on the button Search Now, it should provide you the Path to the Imagerotator (URL): http://yourdomainname/blog/wp-content/uploads/imagerotator.swf

4. The slideshow should be working now.

    I have solved 1 maybe 2 brain numbing problems on ngg albums and slide shows after just arriving here .

    I pulled the files out of imagerotator directory and place them openly in “upload” directory. “search now” finally sync’d up. Now I have slideshows.

    I always seem to get nicked by nggslideshows.

    Client ( wants bookend slideshows and I couldn’t get even the basic function to work.

    what a great resource you are.
