    Hey all,
    I was wondering if someone could help me - I have Frontpage Slideshow Stand Alone edition - that I am trying to put into my vBulletin installation (vb3.8.4).

    To get it working it requires us to call a php include.
    The page I have is: http://www.mysite.com/slideshow.php

    I am trying to get some help as to getting it included at the top of my vbAdvanced Portal page only however no matter what I attempt nothing ever shows up on either the portal page or any other page.

    This is what is actually in the php file I am attempting to include:
    Code:
    <?php
    // START of "Frontpage Slideshow" settings
    $nameOfSlideshowToDisplay = "myslideshow"; // Enter the name of your slideshow. Slideshows are in folders inside /fpss/slideshows/.
    $URLofyoursite = "http://www.mysite.com"; // Enter your site's URL.
    $AbsoluteServerPathofyoursite = "/home/mysite/public_html"; // Enter the root path of your site on the server.
    
    // do not edit below this line
    include_once($AbsoluteServerPathofyoursite."/fpss/mod_fpslideshow.php");
    // END of "Frontpage Slideshow" settings
    ?>
    I have done some searching on vb.com and the actual forums there at frontpageslideshow.net however all the things about greating a plugin/hook etc is dated back to 2006 (four years ago) and I was hoping someone could maybe provide me with some help on where or what I can do to get this to show.

    Ultimately what I am trying to build is something that looks like MyMedia-Forum.com

    Where on the vBAdvanced portal we have a slideshow of images that are eye catching and hopefully gets people to click in and register.

    The second thing: CMPS/vBGallery Help
    I run a website and only last night we purchased vBGallery to run our photo albums on, our website runs vbAdvanced.

    However I can not get Random images from vBGallery to appear on the CMPS (right hand side) no matter what we have tried.

    I have been searching for answers for the last twelve hours or so however all the threads that has modules, or tips to do so are about 3 years old and using out of date versions of the software.

    Our site uses:
    vBulletin 3.8.4 PL 1
    vBAdvanced CMPS 3.2.1
    Photopost vBGallery 2.5

    If anyone could help us get an easy to install module, or something together where we can get random images displayed on our CMPS.

    Okay so just to help out because on the support forums I have seen that the directories are all important so here are the directories I have everything installed in.

    vBulletin and vBAdvanced CMPS are installed in root folder (eg: http://www.mysite.com)
    Photopost vBGallery 2.5 is installed in Gallery folder (eg: http://www.mysite.com/gallery)

    Please any help would be greatfully appreciated.

    merk_aus,

    I was going to purchase the slideshow but was discouraged when I heard and read that it was not being supported for vbulletin installs.

    How did you get it to work? Did you find step by step instructions somewhere?
