Thanks ! that was the problem. Now I discovered one more. I created the site using •Eric Meyer's CSS Sculptor. The other galleries are on single column pages but this slide show is intended to replace the flash video on the home page. When I embed the code the entire right half of the web page and right column disappears on both the single column pages and the multi-column pages. There seems to be a conflict in css or maybe the java code for the slide show. slideshow.php is the page before embeding the code. slideshow2.php is the page with the slideshow code and slideshow3.php is the page with fullsize_ribbon gallery code embeded. That seems to float over the entire page which is what I would like the slide show to do. then I can size it to fit. Should I be adding a div tag to enclose the code for the slideshow or should I edit the css in the slideshow index file ?? Any suggestions are appreciated.
