    I’ve activated the plugin and inserted the code you gave above:

    in my post, however it doesn’t work. I think I’m missing something here too. I’ve also uploaded 2 images in the image group too. Or, should I change the “type=widget” into “type=post” as I’ve typed in the setting?

    Please kindly let me know what I’m missing here. Thanks in advance.

    I installed the plugin and got it working.
    But it seems that it’s not possitble to get de delay between images much longer?
    Am I configurating something wrong, or isn’t it possible to regulate this?
    Thanks in advance for your reaction.

    I want to use Up/Down in a sidebar but it won’t show up! Not on a home page or secondary page. I CAN get the shortcode to work in a post, but the images do not rescale like you said they should. Instead, they get cut off.

    Help, please.

    Hi. Absolutely love this plugin. However, after updating to version 2.0 I’m no longer able to add post tags to my posts in WP admin. If I temporarily deactivate the plugin, everything works fine (I’m running WP 3.2.1). Is there any way I can downgrade back to version 1.0?

        Thanks mate.

        I noticed that you put out 3.0. Unfortunately the problem still remains.

        The exact problem is; in WP admin, if I want to add a post tag, write the appropriate tag in the box and click “Add”, nothing happens. Nor does the “Choose from the most used tags” work.

    If you want to use this inside of a text widget, add the following to your themes functions.php file ( or the relevant wordpress template file ):

    if ( function_exists(‘udisg_Show_Filter’) ) {
    add_filter(‘widget_text’, ‘udisg_Show_Filter’);

    That will cause the same filter that is used in the content area of pages to be fired on your wordpress widgets…so you can use the widget shortcode for this plugin within a text widget.

    A very nice plugin, thank you.
    Just a question, I have on posts and pages different sidebars but can’t find out how to place the widget in both sidebars. (Would love to use it on both sidebars with different images).
    Am I doing some wrong or is it not possible this way?

    thnx in advance for time and effort.

      This plugin don’t have reusable widget, so widget can use only once. you can use short code many time in the same posts and pages.

    I have inserted the shortcode in the same page twice but it is not working. I have referenced two different “types” but when I put them in the same page the first one inherits the seconds one’s properties and then nothing is displayed on the second one.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    July 3, 2012 at 7:45 am #

    I thought this would be the answer, but, from reading the comments here .. the method of referencing images seems to be so unclear. i filled in the page for image mamangement , and all i saw was an error “No data available! use below form to create!” after entering image detail and page boxes clear..
    My god usability is dire here or instructions are really missing something !!

      After activate the plugin, you can see the default data in the table and in the admin page. if it is not installed properly or no data in the table, it will show this message in the admin.

      Now you can use the HTML form to input your slideshow details. if it is not save properly, you need to check the table in the database.
