internationalisation needs to be implemented
|The Slideshow gadget is written and maintained by User:Dschwen. Activating it adds a button to all galleries on commons, which appears when hovering the mousepointer over the gallery. Clicking the button starts a full screen slideshow of all images in the gallery.|
Bugs / Feature requests
This script does not work for me (Firefox 3 on Windows XP). It takes me to another screen, but the images are not shown. Greetings, SPQRobin (talk) 22:16, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
- Please purge your cache and try again. The HTML rendering of the galleries has changes, I had to adapt the script. --Dschwen (talk)
Can you put up an example of this? I would like to see how it works.
Could there be arrows for controlling the pictures? Like left for previous image and right for next?--Diaa abdelmoneim (talk) 12:26, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Once in a while, this doesn't work for me. Currently it doesn't and I'm not sure if it's due to the changes of last week. Does it work for others? -- User:Docu at 20:04, 26 September 2009 (UTC)
- Hello Dschwen, using Firefox 3.5.3 slideshow doesn´t work either. Maybe you can help? --4028mdk09 (talk) 12:36, 6 February 2010 (UTC) working it´s a really fine tool :-)
Only works on some images
I just activated this gadget. Looking at the St. Louis page, some images come up in the slideshow, others don't. I tested it with Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome. It's the same with all three. Any fix? Jdsteakley (talk) 18:19, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
- Yes, very weird. Tsthumb must be broken . --Dschwen (talk) 18:32, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
the URLs parsed from the href of the thumb-links are already url-encoded (in mediawiki's url-encoding variant for /wiki/-urls) and then url-encoded again with
showimg.src = 'http://toolserver.org/tsthumb/tsthumb?w=800&h=800&domain=commons.wikimedia.org&f='+encodeURIComponent(slideshow.list[slideshow.current]);
additionally, the toolserver seems to expect url-encoded file names in ISO-8859-1, whereas commons uses UTF-8 -- ∂ (talk) 19:49, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Hi, nice tool! I had some trouble finding out, though. You should add a note about how it works. I was looking for a new tab or something the like. Tell people to move their mouse over the gallery to see the effect.
My pictures have titles; it would be nice to see them in the slide show as well.--Nobrook (talk) 11:05, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
Usage of window.setTimeout() is wrong.
The first parameter of window.setTimeout() should point to a function not a string. So,
should be replaced by
Otherwise, Opera will throw an exception.

Undefined variable: wgServer
Using Opera 10.63 I got the following error:
