Superb Slideshow

This is a strong, cross browser fade in slideshow script that incorporates some of your most requested features all rolled into one. Each instance of a fade in slideshow on the page is completely independent of the other, with support for different features selectively enabled for each slideshow.

  • Fade in effect that has the current image fading over the previous one.
  • Automatic slideshow.
  • Slideshow can be set to stop rotating after N cycles.
  • Each slide can be optionally hyperlinked.
  • Each slide can have an optional description associated with it.
  • Descriptions can either be set to show on demand (when the mouse rolls over the slide), or be always visible until explicitly dismissed.
  • Persistence of last viewed slide supported, so when the user reloads the page, the slideshow resumes from the last slide.
  • Slideshow automatically pauses onMouseover.

      1. First take backup your existing xml and images.
      2. Update the plug-in
      3. Remove the cache.
      4. Refresh the page.

      if not working.. try to update the plugin manually(simply download the plug-in and update the plug-in directory via FTP)

    I was all set to go live with this site and then I upgraded the plugin and it doesn’t show the images
    Not only that but it appears to interfere with my headway theme visual editor
    I deactivated the plugin and my editor works again
    I loved this plugin – its a major component of this website. I have it extending the full width of the site just under the menu (doesn’t show now because I deactivated it)

    Could I please have a copy of the previous version. It was working great for me. This new version isn’t going to do the job
    Please send me version 4

    I love your plugins. Many thanks.

    This one is very flexible, which is good, but I have a problem: With a theme that uses pull-down menus (like the one at for example) the slideshow overlaps the menus, and it should be the other way around.

    Any way of solving this editing code? Or are you planning to add a Z-plane option so people can choose the plane where the slideshow will stay?

    Thanks once more!

    I have the plugin working great in a post or page, my pics show and everything. My problem is when I install it as a widget in the sidebar some how it screws up my entire hompage!

    my section where I have “featured” posts uncompresses into seperate posts and the same happens for the video player. instead of one video player showing multiple videos it seperates each video in the list so there will be multiple video players instead of one with a playlist! how can I fix this, I want to use this in the side bar and not in a post or page. Or is this simply a conflict with my theme perhaps?

    Infact this same problem happens with your other plugins also, ive tried New Simple Gallery and get the same result.

    I do however have your Random image gallery with fancy zoom installed and this doesn’t cause any problems with the rest of the page.

    please help thanks.

    On my Windows Server 2008 R2 running IIS 7.5 I had to modify the code slightly to get it to read the XML file.

    In superb-slideshow.php I replaced..
    $doc->load( $sswld_pluginurl . $sswld_xml_file );

    with a physical path..
    $doc->load( “c:\inetpub\wwwroot\superb-slideshow.xml” );

    A programmer should probably sort this out properly.

    This plug-in was confusing and lengthy and it shouldn’t be that way! People should know this: if inserting this line of code ONLY into your post or page “[superb-slideshow=filename=page1.xml&width=400&height=300]” you will get a blank area and won’t be able to see any images. Try this if that happens: make a new template to use with the slideshow (you can call it “Slideshow” if you want) and put this code where you want it to appear on the page: “” (without quotes, of course). If you do this method, delete the “[superb-slideshow=filename=page1.xml&width=400&height=300]” from the post/page. Then, it worked for me. I don’t know why the other method didn’t work completely. The whole tutorial needs to be re-written more clearly, if you want my opinion.

    If I put a shortcode in a page like this, [superb-slideshow=filename=_live.xml&width=600&height=350]

    I should get the height and width shown. Why won’t it? I’m happy to help you re-write the instructions in better English so it makes sense. LMK

      Is there any help for this?

      All I have been able to come up with is:
      — LI id=”superb slideshow” may be the problem since that space makes it 2 different IDs
      — inside that, the div id=”sswld” is self-closing, not a full div

    Hi, I like the plugin but I want to get rid of the widget title space. Even when I delete the title in the settings page, the space for the widget title is still there and it does not align with the top of the sidebar. Also how can I widen the description – Add a little more space above and below the description.

    January 26, 2012 at 12:25 pm #

    Thank you so much for this really “superb” plugin you can see in action here with the banner in the top right corner. Two things I believe that would be very useful for everybody and let your plugin be used in many other ways.
    1) allow to set a different duration for the last slide in case all the images belong to the same “animation” like I do with my banner, so the animation stops a while (or forever without creating another total image ahead the other images) before beginning once more;
    2) the possibility to see a list with all the .xml files created.
    One question:
    Is not possible to use the widget way to insert the slideshow for more instances? It disappears once inserted. If it was possible we could choose the slideshow we need from a list.
    Thank you

    I can’t find an xml file in my extracted files. Is this supposed to be generated by WordPress?

    Ignore the last question. I downloaded the wrong widget.

    Clarification on using the Short Code to insert this Slideshow into your website. The Short Code provided is incorrect. If you are getting a blank or black area where your slides are supposed to appear it’s because the wrong xml file is provided in the Short Code. This is what the Short Code should be:


    Replace MYFILE with the name of your xml file. The file is probably named:

    superb-slideshow-v2 or superb-slideshow

    This is the xml file where you input the image path (new image node).

    This is a great slideshow and very easy to configure. But I have two questions!

    1) Is it able to remove the pause when the mouse hovers over a photo?

    2) How can I add a previous | pause | next buttons?

    Thanks in advance!

    I cannot get this to work. I have tried everything I know. I added the plug-in and activated it. I added the code to every post I wanted displayed. I added the code to everything theme php………nada. I know the slide show is working in the background because when I use Firebug, the code moves around. I don’t know what you are talking about with changing the XML code. In the posts code I changed “filename” to the link for the picture. Still nothing. I am about ready to give up on this. Why people think this is so simple, I do not know. It’s the most complicated plug-in I have used so far.

    Great plugin, but it appears OVER my menu. For instance, if someone hovers over my menu, which has about 10 sub menu items, the sub menus are blocked by the slideshow because the slideshow appears IN FRONT of the menu when the menu is expanded. How can I fix this?

        Thank you for your reply. I’ve changed the z-index value in the superb-slideshow.js file but it appears to do nothing. I’ve changed it from its default of 1002 to 0, 1, -1, -1000 and nothing seems to change.

    Hi sir,

    I have problem with plugin, i have used this it in the left sidebar of the above url. But this was not coming. Before that this plugin was working in test server, but now coming to the production server, this was not working, i checked “DOM” things. It showing the “loading image”. Please check this and let me know the solution. It is very urgent.

    This is my test server url, where the plugin was working.

    Nice plugin!
    Would it be possible if you click on the images that they appear in a lightbox (plugin installed
    but doesn’t work for the images in de slideshow)
    Thanks in advance!
    Kind regards,

    I have installed this plugin and I love the way my slideshow looks on my site, the only problem is that it obscures the drop down menu. Is there any way to fix this?

    What might be wrong? The file exists. Paths are correct

    I got it work by replacing line 143 with actual path to the xml file

    $doc->load( $sswld_pluginurl . $filename );

    $doc->load( “/home/myfloder/public_html/wp-content/plugins/superb-slideshow/my_slides.xml” );

    Just upgraded wordpress to 3.41 and the ssg-superb-slideshow plugin has stopped working.

    I now receive the error “No records found, please check your short code”

    So I checked the short code and it seemed to be fine [ssg-superb-slideshow=frontpage=890=315=6000=1000=0=YES] frontpage is the set of images I am using.

    I tried to get your plugin to creat the shortcode for me, but once I enter all the numbers and click on submit, nothing appears for me to paste.

    I am using version 10 of your plugin.

    I am finding that sometimes it loads slow in IE8 and is just hanging for ages before anything appears – is this something others have noticed? Is there anything I can do about it?
