  1. Nice extension! Can i flip the orientation horizontally: make it work from right to left instead of left to right? That would be great!

  2. When I test the example galleries, just the photos appear, no slideshow. Is there something off with my wordpress settings? Thanks for the help!

  3. Hi there,

    It is me again: Thanks for a free and nice plugin. Can i flip the orientation horizontally: make it work from right to left instead of left to right?

    What part of the code should i be looking for?

    Help is greatly appreciated.

    Thnx in advance

  4. Ah excuse me; i mean from the left to the right istead of right to left: that the clickable strokes are on the left (to begin with) instead of on the right. Excuse me for my bad english.


  5. How do I get my pics from the Media Library into separate galleries? I want to put an accordian slide show on several different show, but I’m stuck on this. Thank you.

  6. I drop a comment every time I like a write-up on a web site or if I’ve some thing to useful to contribute towards the conversation. It is a outcome from the fire communicated within the post I browsed. And following reading this write-up I was really moved sufficient to drop a comment right here

  7. I am having trouble with changing the order of the slides in the Slideshow. The gallery displays and works well, I simply cannot reorder them. I have the random option set to “no”.

    I have labeled the images 1.jpg..7.jpg. Even when I rename them to the order I want, they appear in the same order.

  8. Trying to use the slider, but all of the photos appear vertically on the page and the slider isn’t working. You mentioned to check the JQuery link. Not sure what you mean by that.

  9. I am experiencing conflicts with the WordPress plugin “the welcomizer” which is an animation pluggin on the WordPress site.

    When both Jquery accordion slideshow and the welcomizer are activated at the same time the welcomizer works fine but your slideshows are disabled.

    When only one of the plugins are activated they both work perfectly.

    I have worked with the developer of the welcomizer and feel confident that he has done his best to eliminate conflicts.

    Would it be possible to getthe Jquery accordion slideshow updated? It does appear that the way the new hooks are created and released I am expriencing these symptons.

    To test for conflicts set up a simple Jquery accordion slideshow. Install the welcomizer and one of the examples – basic example 2 is good as it creates a constant movement of the WordPress logo.

    Please help, Josey!

  10. Should i place my images only under “wp-content/plugins/jquery-accordion-slideshow/..??
    I have placed my files under “wp-content/gallery/rathothsava-2012/ ” and m not able to c slide show in the front end.
    What might be the problem.??

  11. The images are appearing vertically, the slide is not horziontal and also not working, does somebody know what the problem is an much important: how I can solve it?
    the settings are the same as shownt in the example image on this page


  12. This is a great straightforward plugin, but would love to add this to my header template rather than in the page content..have tried the suggested code above but no good… any suggestions?

  13. sorry folks this editor is removing my code, i used the suggested ech in comments above and ensured fonts were correct

  14. I see I’m not the only one having problems with this. The images are appearing vertically – I remember Kwicks did something similar but fiddling with the CSS seemed to fix it. No CSS style sheet for this that I can see though. Anyway it’s a plugin not a script and it’s supposed to be compatible up to WP 3.4 (I’m on 3.3.2) so why isn’t it working. I’ve deactivated all my other plugins just in case of conflct but no go.

    This is really frustrating. Does anyone know how to get the images to appear like they should, and the slider y’know work?? (Oh and I’ve used the demo images and settings. No point in doing my own until I can get the demo working.

  15. I have very hard time incorporating the jquery acordion menu. I downloaded the zip file and activated the plugin. but from there I am not able to find the location to add this as menu.
    I see the Home template has a big blank space when I use that as home page. But I am not sure where to put the short code for jquery acordion and how to display that.

    I would appreciate some help please.

  16. Estou tentando colocar no meu site e não consigo que apareça na pagina, usei o Código Plugin curto [Galeria jquery acordeão = “Gallery1”] com o n° da galeria e nada.
    Não entendi a Q1: Você tem que mudar o local dessa pasta para o seu local original. (A melhor prática é não carregar as imagens originais para essa pasta padrão em vez de alterar este caminho padrão para o caminho original.
    Estou usando o tema VINTE ELEVEN. Pode ser conflito?

  17. Thanks I have sorted the image path. Question is there a way to stop the slides from repeating after all slides have appeared (stop looping the animation)

    • Hey Mark – did you ever solve the problem of the repeating slides? I want mine to scroll in once, then act as a sort of menu, so want to turn the repeat off too…searched the plugin .js files, but nothing leaped out at me…?

  18. Hi … hmmm …. damned.
    I cant find the admin page with “Gallery 1 – x” …. is it a single plugin called “admin page”?

    “Go to Administration” → Setting Menu → Jquery accordion slideshow

    I cant find the Image Folder of the Plugin.

    Plz help, TY!

  19. Hi,

    Very nice plugin thanks, just one question : is it possible to put a link to click by image with a xml file attached in the folder where the images are hosted maybe ?

  20. The jquery accordian slideshow is working but I can’t find out how to order the images – alphabetical does not work.

    Also, can I link the images to a page?

    Thank you

  21. Good evening, I can not call this plugin in php. Neither of the two forms that were passed here worked. Someone could call this plugin for php?

  22. I am trying out your plugin for the first time. Everything is working perfectly except that the slides are not in the right order. I have tried setting the “Random” option to both yes and no, with no change. (I have cleared my cache as well). Any help would be appreciated, as I won’t be able to use the plugin if I can’t work through this issue. The slides need to be in a set order.

  23. Hey, i’ve got it working calling from PHP, but there is a trick.
    FIrst, i created a new page and inserter shortcode for slider: [jquery-accordion gallery=”GALLERY1″]

    Second, i called the page content via php get_page ($page_id) with filter content.

  24. Hi

    Warning: opendir(wp-content/plugins/jquery-accordion-slideshow/gallery2/): failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /home/thesite/public_html/2012/wp-content/plugins/jquery-accordion-slideshow/jquery-accordion-slideshow.php on line 172 Warning: readdir() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/thesite/public_html/2012/wp-content/plugins/jquery-accordion-slideshow/jquery-accordion-slideshow.php on line 174
