slideshow not working properly

Postby Gerard113 » Sun Feb 06, 2011 6:48 pm

Hi

I updated my website to version 2.2.3 rev3485 and installed slideshow. I filled the administration page and put the [[slideshow folder=slideshow/billy]] onto my page.(tested it also with only the [[slideshow]]

But i do not get the images but only the title of the image on my webpage? (http://www.theater-kaarten.nl/?e=2)

the following code is generated:

Code: Select all
<div id="pivotx-slideshow-0" class="svw">
<ul>
<li>
<img src="/pivotx/includes/timthumb.php?src=slideshow%2Fbilly%2Foranje.jpg&amp;w=300&amp;h=200&amp;zc=1" alt="oranje" width="300" height="200" />
</li>
<li>
<img src="/pivotx/includes/timthumb.php?src=slideshow%2Fbilly%2Fgeel.jpg&amp;w=300&amp;h=200&amp;zc=1" alt="geel" width="300" height="200" />
</li>
<li>
<img src="/pivotx/includes/timthumb.php?src=slideshow%2Fbilly%2Fblauw.jpg&amp;w=300&amp;h=200&amp;zc=1" alt="blauw" width="300" height="200" />
</li>
</ul>
</div>


Can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong or is there a bug in pivotx of in the extention?

Greetings,

Gerard

<!-- PivotX feels unloved.. :-( -->

I just tested it with a similar folder structure and I have no problems. Are you sure that the jpg's and folders are spelled exactly like that?
Are there any messages in the debuglog? Maybe timthumb has problems......

Harm,

When you use the wrong directory, you get an error.

The only message in de debug is the following:

Code: Select all
2011-02-06 21:46:08 - 0.043 -- modules/module_debug.php:414 / userErrorHandler() --  ( 9320052 )
Warning: strpos() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given. (in 'pivotx/objects.php' on line 1093)


I don't know if this is the problem.

greetings,

Gerard

I am on revision 3471. I don't have the message you have and as I said it is working properly with similar code in the page as you specified.
Did you set the rights of the folders similar to the images folder? And what happens if you put the same pictures in for example the gallery? Are the thumbs then displayed correctly?

Harm,

the rights are the same as the other folders. I changed them to 777 but that made no difference.

Strange is that you see the title of the image but not the image itself. The effect is best seen in IE. in firefox you only see the titles waving away, in IE you can see the surrounting of the image with the X into it.

PivotX still feels unloved................ I guess you've seen my previous remark? This means that haven't credited PivotX on your page.
This could mean that support is somewhat slower than usual......... :(

Anyway: did you try a similar structure with other images on another entry? Does slideshow work altogether?
And you have a missing template warning on your page for menu_kaarten.

Harm,

I tried your suggestion but that did not work i uploaded new pictures but that made no change. i also made a new folder but that did not made a change. I tried it also at a page but that gave the same problem.

i deleted the menu_kaarten. warning in the template. that was because i changed from page to entry and on the page i used a adjusted version of the hirarchical menu.

Do you have other suggestions to solve the problem.

btw: Pivotx feels to be loved now. This is a test site and not a production site.

Could you post the configuration page of Slideshow? In that way I can set all parms exactly like you have and try to reproduce your problem on my side.

I set the configuration exactly to what you specified and still it works.
I didn't expect that because on my test page I have one slideshow template that specifies the folder and one that displays the widgets where the default location should be used. As you don't specify slideshow as default map I expected either an error or the content of folder images but it still shows the content of slideshow map. Even after cleaning the cache. Peculiar!
Anyway what happens when you specify slideshow as default map?
And maybe the images are too small?

I guess you know you can just test by putting [[ slideshow folder='slideshow/submap' ]] in any of your entries or pages?

And what version of slideshow do you have installed? Mine says last updated 2010-09-27 on the widget screen.

Another option is to let a developer take a look at your configuration. Probably Hansfn or Bob could help but I am not sure whether they currently have time for that.... ;)
