    Hallo nochmal, leider ist das Problem, das auf allen Unterseiten nur die Frontseite angezeigt wird wieder aufgetaucht trotzdem ich den Code in die index.php eingesetzt habe.
    Die einzigen Unterseiten die korrekt angezeigt werden sind die einzelnen Blogpostunterseiten.

    Musste das Plugin darum leider deaktivieren.

    weißt du wie man ein Template in WordPress anlegt? Dann würde ich dir raten für deine Startseite z.B. eine home.php anzulegen und nur da den Code einzubetten.

    Für das Page Template lies dir das mal durch:

    „Creating your own Page Templates“

  6. Don Kong sagt:

    Hab vielen Dank für die Antwort aber so weit, jetzt noch das Template zu modifizieren, wollte ich garnicht gehen. In der Hoffnung, das irgendwann eine Version erscheint die mit jedem Template ohne Umbauten funktioniert verbleibe ich mit freundlichen Grüssen.

    First of all, thanks for your great service.
    Can you please tell me how to identify ‚what is my category id‘
    (Sorry my English is so bad)

  8. admin sagt:

    You will find your category ID in your admin
    Area. Go to Articles, Categories then click
    on one category and have a look at the URL.
    There is the category ID something like cat=35

  9. Hi:

    Congratulations on a fantastic plugin. I just wondered if we can put „post excerpt“ at the place of the (default) 460 text characters? If yes, what changes are to be made and where?

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas.

    Awaiting your kind reply,

  10. admin sagt:


    thanks for your kind christmas wishes, merry christmas to you!

    To add „the_excerpt“ you have to search in glideshow.php for „“
    replace this code with „“

    This will solve your Problem!
    Have fun with this plugin!

  11. Hi there:

    Thanks for the reply. It is much appreciated.

    I would be grateful if you could guide me with this one last bit:

    The glide-text headline and the body text have somehow got CENTER ALIGNED. I have tried my bit but could not make the two LEFT ALIGNED.

    Please let me know where things have gone wrong at my end.


  12. Dear Admin:

    Any solution to my above query?

    While I had cracked the excerpt problem in a few minutes (I am sorry for not informing you of that and thank you for providing me with the solution), I am just not able to understand what the issue with the alignment is. You – and others too – can have a look at the to see what I am saying.

    I want the glide headline and glide text to be left aligned. Though I tried many tweaks, it is still center aligned. 🙁

    Any help would be appreciated.


  13. admin sagt:

    Hi Anshuman,

    did you try to add „text-align: left;“ to the .glidecontent class?
    You have to add this in glideshow.php where the styles are declared.

  14. admin sagt:

    .glidetext {
    width: 228px;
    margin: 0px 0px 30px 20px;
    color: #000000;
    float: left;
    text-align: left;

    this works I just tried with firebug!

  15. Hi:

    It indeed works! 🙂 I did try that once or twice but not sure why it didn’t work earlier. 🙁 I am sorry if I bugged you with elementary things. I am actually a journalist and not a techie.

    Wonder if you are into soccer or not. But if you are, how do you say „step up the game, Ballack“ in German? 🙂

    Have a great holiday week ahead. Give a buzz if you ever come to India.

    Thanks again for the support.


  16. admin sagt:


    you’re welcome, of course I’m into soccer, and in Germany we would say something like „Ballack, hau ihn rein!“ (:

    Have a nice holiday too, yes and you give me a buzz if you will ever come to Germany.


  17. Hi:

    Thanks for the invite! Now all I need to do is to earn enough money to be able to visit your magnificent country. 🙁 🙂

    By the way, my message for Ballack was only for his recent form with CHELSEA FC (EPL) – I’m not aware of his form with your national side. 🙁

    We do get the Bundesliga LIVE here in India too. See some matches on and off – especially of Bayern and Wolfsberg – but not as much as those of EPL.

    India’s most popular sport is Cricket. Just a trivia (that you never needed? :-)) for you.

    More later,

    Ich habe mein WP als CMS zmgebaut und erstelle Beiträge quasi nur als Seite (Page). Gibt es denn keine Möglichkeit das Plugin dennoch für Pages zu nutzen (Das mit der Cat ID muss man doch umgehen können). Ausserdem finde ich es sehr schade, dass es bisher keine wirklich brauchbare Installationsanweisung gibt. Wo genau in der index.php den Codeschipsel einfügen ? Wo Bilder für die slideshow einfügen ? Habe ja nur 2 Felder ohne default Einstellungen:
    Category ID of Featured Posts: UND Number of Featured Posts: —
    Also solch ein Pluging mit „richtiger“ Installationsanweisung sowie install-auswahl zb; pages, post, index und eigenständiges Textfeld im Adminbereich inkl. Bildurlfeld wäre mir als premium version auch ein paar Euros wert 😉

    Something’s wrong, wp slideshow has the same issue as wp glideshow. All works well, just doesn’t slide and the images(slider) are width:0px height:0px; I’m working for a few hours now and I really tried everything, even reinstalling all the scripts.

    Alles gute,

    • admin sagt:

      that is not a Problem of my Plugins. The Problem is, that you probably have Jquery already included by your Theme.
      All you can do is delete Jquery in your Header (or adjusting the Plugin)

  21. Bob Wells sagt:

    Is there a way to have Glideshow display the text of the Excerpt from the Post, rather than the beginning (up to the „more“ tag) of the actual Post?

  22. Kerem sagt:

    Is it possible to use this plugin in a single post rather than in EVERY post or on a homepage?

  23. Sonsey sagt:

    I have a weird issue… when I choose my category id in the settings, the main page below the plugin also shows ONLY that category… in other words if I choose category id 4, no other categories will show up in my blog…Otherwise works like a charm!

  24. i have the same problem as Sonsey, and thats not the only addon with that problem. i assume wordpress update changed something

    same problem occurs when all addons are diabeled, and on fdifferent themes as well AND on different wordpress blogs.

    same problem occurs when i use wp slidebar or something addon ( it alsu used categories to fetch featured posts )

    please help us ;]
