    Thanks - after I wrote you I continued to play with the settings.  I'm not sure what I did but it did start working for me.  I had gotten the comment from other who were viewing my site and need to confirm with them that it works in their browsers also.  If I get any more complaints I'll try to get the details (browser, operating system, etc.) and write back to you.

    Again, thanks for your patience.

    Hi Ken,


    The autoplay option for the slideshow gallery means that the Gallery will transition between the different photos automatically, even without the visitor navigating through the photos.

    I checked your website at www.malteseandassociates.com, and the Gallery on the home page seems to be auto-playing properly- the gallery navigates through the different images automatically and smoothly. Do you not see it auto-playing when viewing your site?

    If you are referring to a different gallery, please specify- on which page can we find it? On which of your sites? What is the location of this gallery within the page?- and we will further investigate.

    Got the "change style" icon - don't know what the issue was before.  Putting the picture in a frame allows the caption to appear ok.  The Change Style option doesn't seem to allow different formats on each picture as it treats the slide show as a unit so that any change changes all the pics.

    As to the "autorun", one of the options on the slideshow gallery drop down is "autoplay".  I read this as meaning that the slide show will automatically run when loaded.  I have "Show Autoplay Button", "Expand Mode" and "Show Navigation Buttons" selected.  When the site loads, the viewer needs to hover over the picture to get the nav buttons up and change pictures.  I want the slide show to run automatically so maybe I need to "unselect" something?

    Sure. I hope this works.

    Direct link: http://impressallincluded.wix.com/orangelemontshirts2#!mission/cjg9

    Just link to site: http://impressallincluded.wix.com/orangelemontshirts2

    Page where the galleries are is Mission.

    Please note that this is still a trial phase and far from finished site.

    Thank you.

    I would like to create a collage of different photos, different sizes and different ratios, with text descriptions appearing on mouse roll-over. I've managed to get desired result with grid gallery with only one photo in it. The only problem I have is the picture counter in the bottom right corner, that shows the current number of picture and the total number of pictures in gallery. Can that that be removed somehow.

    Thank you

    Hello kenmaltese,


    Attached is a screenshot that shows where the 'Change Style' option can be found, if you still can not find it, please inform us so we can further investigate. Please note that the menu shown appears on the screen only after clicking on the gallery.


    Regarding your second query about "autorun"- I'm not sure I understand which function you are talking about. Please try to be as specific as possible so we can better assist you- which option are you trying to enable? On what element?

    When I click on Gallery I don't have the "change style" option.  I have 4 types of Gallery (grid, slide, slide show, etc.) by cannot find the 'change style" option.  I am trying to format the text that appears in my descriptions for the slides since in some slides it needs to be black and others white.  Right now, the text can't be read on some slides.  I also can't get the "autorun" to work even though selected so my viewers have to scroll over the pictures to see the text and the navigation arrows.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
