    I’m trying this on my site but it’s not working.
    Can you tell me what to fill in for these parameters because I think they are a bit confusing…
    Start image Path/Url
    Image gallery Path
    Image resize folder

    Thanks for the help!

      Start image Path/Url -> is for the initial image to show up after loading the page. It might be an url of that image or an wordpress internal path.
      Image gallery Path -> if you want to use your own images for the puzzles to show up in that puzzle-gallery feature, link this option to your wordpress path where the images are located
      Image resize folder -> usually the images are to big or to small if you dont care about their size for the puzzle. If you let the plugin resize them, you need a temporary folder for those resized images. That option is exactly to handle this folder path.

      hope that helps

        Do I have to put all the images in the image resize folder, or does your program do this ?
        I tried both, but without success. I just keep getting empty tiles.
        Furthermore the gallery buttom does not work.
        Any idea ?

    Hi, I wish you well with all your puzzles. I would like to have the sliding puzzle with just the window – no restart – gallery – or puzzle games about the window. can one buy the puzzle with that option? I don’t have much money, but maybe I could buy 2 or 3 puzzles with the same need that they be clean of al buttons….
    Thank you, David

      Hi, can you send me your details on website and plugin parameters to my email. I’ll try to help out there.
      The current sliding plugin wont work on iPads because it’s Flash based. We plan a html5 based version later on.
      Regards, Tom

    Thanks for your great work.
    1. How can i change the buttons (gallery, restart, hint) to my language?
    2. when person finish the puzzle there is a message when he click on it, he is leaving the site , that is not good, maybe you have another solution?

      Hi Amit,
      right now there is no multi-language support for the flash.
      The link on finish is something that will be variable in the next version. So you can define your own redirect.
      Still working on other things…sry.

    Excuse me if this seems a silly question as I am very much an amateur at Joomla. How do I get the sliding puzzle to sit in the main body area of the page, rather than a module area. I can only get it to work if I put it at the bottom module position which is not what I want. If I try anywhere else I just get blank, and everything that should be in the main body and other modules disappear.
