      I have verified the plugin, this option is really missing in the plugin admin UI. Do change this directly in DB (I will update the plugin soon).

      table name : wp_options
      option_name : easyimage_title
      option_value : Change this value

    I’m using the slideshow as a widget – works perfectly… BUT
    Can anyone tell me how to change the ‘on screen’ title from “Easy image slideshow” to one of my choosing, i.e. – “Images from Scotland” – Thanks

    Due to the code written for this plugin, it will only work on Windows server.
    It will not work on Linux Server.
    We have working code, which works on Linux too.
    Let us know if someone needs the code.

    Hi- I installed this, but no photos are appearing. I looked at the source code and it looks like the names of the photos are being converted to all-caps and therefore not showing up. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      Check the View Source of your front end and check the image URL and confirm its correct. if image URL is not correct, it will display empty.

      This means no records available in the database for the plugin table. you must check the database and confirm plugin table exists or not.

    it works but images do not slide automatically, it need manually snuffle the images so that if there is any idea that slideshow runs automatically
