      changing it to

      did not help. Can you post what was used in the JA Rasite demo? I can verify my syntax against what was used. I just want to know how to configure this properly. Nothing seems to be working in the module…and I tried to follow your instructions exactly, after installing this template via the quickstart.

      Thank you for your help in this.

      The “readmore” texto does not forward me to the article.
      How can I go to the article by clicking in the “readmore” or in the “thumbnail” or in the “image”?
      Thanks

      Thank you for posting this. I am still having great difficulty implementing this given your instructions. I matched your setting completely and setup 3 test articles to get it running and nothing.


      Should I just start over? :confused:

      I’m experiencing a caching issue when i have source = From Articles

      Whenever I change the article it does not pick up the changes. For me to make any changes i need to create a new category then copy the articles to the new category and then I have to point ja slideshow2 to the new category. Is anyone experiencing this?
