    Feel free for anyone to see the implementation there. It is really beautiful!:-)

    This is the code you should insert into your post:

    [WP-IMAGE-GALLERY:TYPE=(according what you’ve entere in the image management setting) :WIDTH=450:HEIGHT=338:PAUSE=3000:RANDOM=YES]

    Thank you a trillion for this wonderful plugin!

    Great plug-in. I have installed it and it works great!

    I have a question about visual overlapping with other items on my page. The top menu bar drop-downs on my website drop behind the slideshow instead of in front. Is there a way to change that hierarchy so the slideshow is behind the menu drop-downs?

    I fussed over TONS of different slideshows and formats, some in Java, some DHTML, some powered by Ajax, and couldn’t get any of them to work right after porting it over into WordPress. I could get it to work locally in an HTML or PHP file on the same server but as soon as I tried to embed it into the WordPress pages composing them organically they would break with undefined elements. I finally gave up and searched for a WordPress-only solution. Your plugin was that solution. It worked beautifully, better than any of the others would have turned out anyway, and if I had found it sooner I would have saved myself a few nights of stress. Highly recommended!

    The gallery is correct – it should be showing the sample gallery – the same as the widget.

    Any idea why?

    Hi Gopi

    Sent this inquiry earlier through the “Contact Me” page. Apologies for that.

    Thanks again for your great plugin(s).

    Resized widget to 725×290 from 750×300 in Gallery Setting. Now find the next image to be partially displayed at the top of the present image and a similar amount of the present image cut off at the bottom. Do I now have to resize all my images from 750×300 to 725×290 and upload them again?

Changing the pixels in the shortcode and gallery settings does not fix this problem. I have had this same problem with a couple other of your image gallery plugins. What do I need to do differently?

    Any ideas why it only appears on the page that is defined as the home page?

    Other widgets work as expected.. — if placed into the primary widget area.. appear on all pages using the default template.

    Help appreciated!
