    Hi, thanks for the plugin.

    the plugin is basically working but I cant’ control the length of time between transitions. It seems to change every 2 to 5 seconds regardless of what value I put in the transitions box. What are the limits here – could I set it to 20 seconds?

    thanks for your help

    • Grant Davis says:

      Thanks for pointing it out. Please upgrade to newer version (1.1.1) to fix it. There is no specific limit. You can set it to any number of seconds.

      Thanks again to spend some time to report it.

    Thanks for nice plugin.

    I am using suffusion theme. and nexgen galleries facing two problems viz. 1) cant able to remove pagination bullets. 2) drop down menu goes under the (behind) slide show.

    please help me out.

    • Mohsin Rasool says:

      Please re-download and install the plugin to fix the pagination problem. Secondly, what you mean my dropdown? This plugin does not output any dropdown.

  3. Hi, I like your plugin alot, i just recently installed it on my porfolio site to give it some extra eye candy, how ever i have images of multiple sizes and orientations is there a method for them to “auto-Fit” into the slider and add the option to Click to enlarge, like in lightbox?

    Thanks in advance of your assistance, and i am great full of this neat little plugin.

    • Mohsin Rasool says:

      Thanks Warren for using this plugin. This slider does not have both of these features. As far as the orientation of the photos is concerned, It is best to crop it by yourself. More likely, System cropping may not crop from the right point.

  4. Kyle says:

    It takes a while before the the slideshow starts to go through its rotation. I am wondering if it loads the images into cache and then starts? Is there a way to control this?

    Also, when you resize, the bullets do not move over. Is this a bug?

  5. David says:

    Dear Mohsin
    Thank you very much for your plugin which I have been using on

    Sadly it is doing something strange on the homepag. I am using it in the second block down. There are three issues:

    1. As you will see it appears to be pushing the second column of the second block (Champagne scholar 2013) to the right and the text is not lining up properly.

    2. Similarly there is a large block of space below the rotating pictures for no apparent reason

    3. For some unknown reason, when you click on the ‘Show picture list’ it takes you to the blog home page, not the picture list.

    Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for your help, David

    • Mohsin Rasool says:

      Hey David,
      Here is my repsonse.

      1. You are probably using wrong dimensions for the slider it should be 524×268. Follow CSS will fix it for you

      .ngg-slideshow {width:524px !important; height:268px !important;}

      2. See point 1.
      3. It looks like NextGen gallery or theme’s problem. It is not related to this plugin.

  6. Andre says:

    Dear Mohsin,
    Why I can find NextGen Galley on my admin panel?? Can you help me?

  7. Donald says:

    I have found that the NextGen Gallery does not work properly on the websites I have that are using Directory PRess website template. All my other sites that have the standard templates work fine…please if anyone knows how to fix this (besides removing the directory press theme of course :) )All help will be greatly appreciated.

  8. Sherry says:

    I’ve downloaded your NextGEN 3D and 2D Animated Slider, and activated it in my WordPress account. I am able to find the slider under Settings, in order to set up the settings for the slider. However, there is no Gallery tab underneath the Settings tab in my Dashboard, so I cannot set up my images for the home page slider I want to create.

    I have deactivated and re-activated the slider plug-in several times, but no Gallery tab shows up for me to use.

    Why is this feature missing and how can I get it to set up properly so that I can finish creating my slideshow?


  9. TeaMike says:

    I am very exited to have this installed. Thank you so much for making this plugin!

    It would be great to have more transitions available (slice in 3D) but simply making the existing transitions working horizontally and vertically (for example the 3-D cube) would be amazing.
