Hi, I don't know where to start on how to make the Magic Slideshow work in Wordpress. I have installed many times on web sites but cannot see how to get this working? Where do I upload the images etc? I have installed and activated plugin and ready to go.

Cheers

Hi Paul,

Good point. Thanks for pointing this out. The documentation does not make it obvious how to setup a slideshow on your page.

We will prepare better instructions and post a link here. In the meantime please do this:

1. Go to your post and click the icon to insert an image.
2. Click the Gallery tab.
3. Choose the photos you want in your slideshow.
4. Click the Insert Gallery button.
5. It will have inserted this code into your post: [gallery]
6. Change it to:[gallery class="MagicSlideshow"]
7. That's all.

Thanks!

It looks like you are using an older version of the plugin. We released a new version today.
