    Yesterday there was an opporunity to make a slide show with the downloaded images in the post.
    Today this function has changed.
    Firstly I didn’t recognize the buttom “insert media”
    then I found out strangely organized list of imeges that I downloaded earlier.
    And now there is buttoms “insert to the post” and “insert gallerie” and no buttom “insert slideshow”.
    It is essential to me to make a slideshow not only gallerie…

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is krokingalereya.com.

    Same problem for me! Exactly the same.
    My blog is petitskorrigans.wordpress.com and I don’t recognize the button and the options either. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Yes, it appears that with the change to the Image Uploader the “Insert Slideshow” option is missing. I will tag this for Staff attention.

    Until the button comes back, you can simply type the following in your post or page after you’ve uploaded your images.
    [slideshow]

    I love this new interface for the media gallery but the slideshow functionality is a negative. I can’t figure out how to organize the order of the photos anymore. Any one have a clue?

    You can change the order by dragging and dropping the images in the Gallery interface.

    Thanks for reporting this issue with the slideshow, I’ll investigate.

    In the meantime, you can use the shortcode as justjennifer posted above.

    I’ll keep you posted.

    I’ve tried using the [slideshow] shortcode to insert a slideshow into a post/page, but it doesn’t show up when I publish it. (The code is always there where I go back to edit, though.) Anyone else have this problem?

    @euphreana – Hm, just tested it again on my test site without problem.

    Remember, unlike the Gallery, images in a slideshow must be uploaded (attached) to the post or page where you want them to appear. You can’t select random images and then use the Slideshow shortcode. After you are done uploading the images, you can go ahead and insert the Gallery and then change the shortcode that appears in the post to [slideshow]`

    Correction: “you can’t select random images” from the Media Library

    euphreana & lilmaouz – could you please provide links to the slideshows on your site that aren’t displaying correctly so I can take a look? Even if you’ve made the posts into drafts, I’ll be able to see them. Thanks.

    Staff, please, please stop whatever it is that is changing the post format to something other than what I selected when I wrote the post. I know well enough to decide what post format I want to use. Thank you.

    This sounds frustrating, but I’m not sure what you mean. If this is unrelated to the slideshow issue, would you mind starting a new thread with a few examples and modlooking it so I can investigate? Many thanks.

    lilmaouz – glad your slideshow is working now, thanks for letting me know.

    Kathryn, here’s a previous forum thread, now closed, on the subject.

    Aaaaah, very frustrating this thing with the missing slideshow option.
    Writing [slideshow] in the post helps to make one, but I found it impossible to arrange the pictures by the suggested “drag and drop” method.
    =(

    Please, please fix the slideshow option!

    Our developers are working on a fix for the slideshow issue. I don’t have an ETA, but I’ll keep you posted here.

    justjennifer – thanks for the link. I’ll have look into this.

    Like everyone else, I’m distressed about the slideshow button being gone from the media uploader. I was able to add a slideshow by placing [slideshow] in my post, BUT, I can’t change the order of my photos. When I try to rearrange them, the media uploader doesn’t keep track of my changes, so now my photos are out of order. Please help!

    Thanks. TheLongWeekender.com

    Any word on when the slideshow option will be back up and running? I have a slideshow published right now that is in the wrong order, and there is NO WAY to reorder the photos. This is super frustrating, so any updates would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
