MMM-ImageSlideshow no showing and no errors in the log



  • Howdy,

    I am trying to add a slideshow on the display but the images are not showing. Am I missing anything in the config? It is a basic setup.

    Thanks for the help

    My guess: It’s the path to your picture files.

    Mine:
    imagePaths: ['modules/MMM-ImageSlideshow/images'],



  • I updated and moved the images, but still no go.


  • Module Developer

    @pbrunson

    So, your other modules are working but ImageSlideShow is not?

    {
                disabled: false,
                module: 'MMM-ImageSlideshow',
                position: 'middle_center',
                config: {
                    imagePaths: ['modules/MMM-ImageSlideshow/images'],
                    slideshowSpeed: 10000,
                    fixedImageWidth: 800,
                    randomizeImageOrder: true,
                }
            },
    


  • Correct, I will look try these adds.


  • Module Developer

    @pbrunson said in MMM-ImageSlideshow no showing and no errors in the log:

    Correct, I will look try these adds.

    I see something else. You have

    module: 'MMM-ImageSlideShow',

    when you should have

    module: 'MMM-ImageSlideshow',

    That’s likely your problem



  • That was it, works great now (well after I put the fix settings in), thank you.

    Did I see something about if the images change, this will not pick them up? I have another script that grabs updated images (same name) and puts them in the folder every hour. Will the module update them?


  • Module Developer

    @pbrunson

    The names wouldn’t have to be the same as long as the new files reside in correct path. However, the Dom may have to update so that MM isn’t just loading them from the initial loading/cache (If that’s how the module works)

    Peace!



  • Great thank you, I will keep an eye on it.
