Im using WordPress 3.5.1 and the twentyten theme.

I'm using advanced custom fields and want to ad a slideshow. I'm using the plugin Slideshow Gallery ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/slideshow-gallery/) because I've used it before and I like it.

But it doesn't work. I have a custom field that is a wysiwyg editor. When i push the button to insert a gallery nothing happens...

Anyone know what the problem could be?

Or have a suggestion of another slideshow? It must have thumbnails below, and I want ti style it as I like, but with as little coding as possible...

Thanks! /Frida

  • The plugin has a button? What does it add? A shortcode? If so, you'll have to enable shortcodes for that plugin. But instead of just asking me here on a how-to, please go and search the site as there're plenty of answers about that. – kaiser May 17 '13 at 10:31
  • Yes, that's exactly my problem. I'm using ACF custom fields, and the plugin for the slideshow has a button that ads a shortcode, but it doesn't work. ACF has a setting "Run filter "the_content"?" to use shortcodes within the WYSIWYG fieldis, its selected "Yes", but it still doesn't work... – FridaSofia May 20 '13 at 10:25

Are you adding the shortcode to the ACF custom field? If so, you have to run the content filter on it so that it parses shortcodes.

Fortunately ACF has the option to do this with its WYSIWYG fields. Simply select "Run filter "the_content"?" in the field options.

  • I checked the settings for ACF and "Run filter "the_content"?" is selected "Yes", but it still doesn't work... – FridaSofia May 20 '13 at 10:22
  • I can write the shortcode by hand in the field and the slideshow works, but I just want to click the button to get the shortcode (easier for my custom to use, than to write some code) – FridaSofia May 20 '13 at 10:28
  • What's the difference between the handwritten shortcode and the one output by the button? – Ashraf Slamang May 21 '13 at 10:37
  • Well, when I click the button I get some options and fill them in, and then klick ok, and the shortcode should appear on the screen, but it doesn't, there is no output att all... – FridaSofia May 22 '13 at 8:47
  • Oh OK, I understand now. Do you place the cursor in the WYSIWYG text area before clicking the button? – Ashraf Slamang May 23 '13 at 9:40
