can't insert a slideshow neither a gallery

  1. Hello everyone! I've my blog containing picture content mostly. I've been collecting some pictures for the couple of weeks, and when i uploaded multiple pictures i was unable to put them into a gallery nor a slideshow. It just says "save all changes" and never says "insert into post".
    Any help please.

    The blog I need help with is itspak.wordpress.com.

  2. Are these the instructions you are following?

    A slideshow will display a set of images attached to a particular post or page. If you upload images using the Add an Image button while editing/creating the post or page, they will be attached automatically. If you upload images directly to the media library from Media -> Add New, you will need to attach them to a post or page before they will appear in a slideshow. http://en.support.wordpress.com/slideshows/

    An image gallery will display a set of thumbnail images attached to a particular post or page. When clicked, gallery images are displayed in a full-size carousel view.

    If you upload images using the Add Media button above the post/page editor, they will be attached automatically. If you want to include images that you’ve already uploaded, you’ll need to attach them to a post or page before they will appear in a gallery. http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/

  3. Also have you cleared your browser cache and cookies?

    Exactly which browser and version of it are you using?

    How are you connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com? The way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers.

    Are you using http:// or https:// see http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

  4. I just tried to upload them using add media from media library.
    I have added a slideshow before which is alright, so my internet connection doesn't seem to have any problem.I'm going to try all this stuff, thanks

  5. Whether or not you connection is an issue today or will be 5 minutes from now has nothing to do with whether or not it was not an issue in the past when you created a slideshow. Also note that you must have Javascript enabled on your browser.

  6. I'm using https, surfing with google chrome 17.0 running on window xp. Hope you'll have some suggestions.

  7. Is Google Chrome 17.0 a BETA version? All BETA versions are buggy.If it's a BETA version then I suggest you try the latest stable version.

  9. Hello again with a good news that I've been successful to upload a gallery.
    I noticed that i was using multiple file uploader which was not working at all, and when i changed it with browser uploader everything was right. TC

  10. "I just tried to upload them using add media from media library."

    The gallery feature and the WP slideshow normally work with images "attached" to a post or a static page; that is, images uploaded from your computer via the Add Media button of that post or page, not with images already in your media library.

  11. But I posted a gallery using images already uploaded in media library. How can you say that gallery is only supported by newly uploaded images "from your computer".
    those files were actually unattached

  12. The files must be attached to the post (or page) where you want the gallery to be.

    If you uploaded images to the media library, then they are "unattached" so you must edit them in the media library to "attach" them. Choose a picture, than choose "attach", then choose which post or page you want via "search."

  13. @itspak1: I didn't say only, I said normally.

    There are various ways you can create a gallery with unattached images or images attached to other posts/pages, but all those ways are an unnecessary complication.
    The WP slideshow works only with images attached to the post or page you want the slideshow to be.

  14. I don't know what you guys are talking about. Can i add more pics to that gallery? if so then how?

  15. Take a look at this support document:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/

    Scroll down to
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/#gallery-shortcode

    That explains how to add images attached to other posts or pages using the attachment ID.

    If that does not help, then can you post again about what you want to do?

  16. I want to add some more pics to my gallery directly from media library. Can i do it or not?
    This gallery shortcode tells us about how to add pics which are already in store gallery(am i right?). How can i add pics to it from computer.
