    Hi there…sorry, to understand what was posted here I used google translate :). nice job with this plugin. i have one question: can I use it multiple times? I was thinking to make some ’settings files‘ in my theme file, and within any template pages to include them to automatically switch the global variables of the glideshow (height,speed,category,article nr…). is my theory correct and is it possible to include more than one instance? thanks

    Hi, your plug-in is awesome but I’m having one problem with the slideshow excerpt. It wont display more than 200 characters no matter what I change it too.

    Thanks for the great plugin!

    I have two questions:

    1. Is there a way to view the text from posts with formatting (I want the paragraphs to remain on separate lines)?

    2. Is it possible to view post titles instead of numbers (1, 2, 3, etc.) in the navigation?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi, super slideshow, danke für diese plugin! Leider habe ich ein problem. Ich benutze arras als theme. Die slideshow funktioniert perfekt in firefox und chrome. Allerdings leider nicht in IE8 oder IE9. Mir wird zwar der thumbnail angezeigt aber der exerpt text fehlt komplett.

    Habt ihr zufällig eine lösung für dieses problem?

    Excellent slider, easy to use and easy to install.

    Just one thing – is there a way to limit the number of recent posts (i.e. the last 5)? Is there code that can be inserted/adjusted?

    very nice plugin.. I’m using it in my site.
    Otherwise I have an issue with WPML plugin.

    I use glideshow plugin to show some featured posts (only thumbnail + link) in my homepage, but can’t figure out how to show posts according to current language..
    Posts are the same but permalinks are the same for all lenguage..

    Amazing Plug-in I am currently using it.

    I would love to know if there is a way to limit the number of posts or to expire posts from the Slideshow. This would really help in Automating site that we create!

    Thanks again for the amazing plugin

    Found the answer on – the „scripts“ folder doesn’t install when installing via WordPress. Download the package from this site and move the „scripts“ folder into wp-content/plugins/wp-glideshow/ – works fine now! 🙂
