So, whenever i go to an article, and the images are made into a slideshow, the images in the slideshow don't appear. Any other images do appear, it's just whenever they're in a slideshow, the slideshow doesn't play for me.
i don't know... i mean, i'm using safari, and well i thought flash had to do with it, so i updated my flash... still nothing.
I checked using Firefox, Opera, Chrome and IE, slideshows worked in all. Something I did notice though, is that some images are randomly not showing up in random articles. Refreshing the page fixes it. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:14, September 29, 2011 (UTC)
That sounds more like a problem on your end, do as SimAnt says and enable Jacascript on your browser.--Cerez365™ 22:31, September 29, 2011 (UTC)
- Assuming that you're using a mac... have you tried using another browser like Firefox or Chrome for Mac?--Cerez365™ 02:49, October 7, 2011 (UTC)
I had the same problem. It's the Ad Blocker or Content Blocker or whatever its name is. It's damn annoying to see slideshows not working, but I'm not going to turn my Ad blocker off... hell, I can't even determine what my Ad blocker is blocking that is stopping the slideshow from working.

I discovered that the Ghostery addon, no matter which browser it's used in (except for Safari, which I don't use, so I can't say anything), blocks the slideshow. If I turn it off, the slideshow works, and it's just that one for me. Slides still work, and I have AdblockPlus in Firefox and ChromeBlock in Chrome. I already reported that bug to Wikia a few months ago, and from what I could find in the Ghostery forums, they've been told their extension breaks this functionality as well.

Ghostery is ONE extension that blocks the slideshow. Facebook Disconnect is a more specific extensions that blocks slideshows when using Chrome Browser. As for AdblockPlus: whether it breaks the slideshow depends on what filters you use. I have a filter subscription "facebookprivacy" that also stops the slideshows from working. All in all, it seems that if you block facebook, you prevent slideshows from working. Seems like a problem on Wikia's end to me. Why on eaarth should facebook be important to get slideshows functioning. Joolushko Tunai Fenta Hovalis (talk) 12:35, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
