I have put the following code into a block on magento:
// 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/user/public_html"; // Enter the root path of your site on the server.
// do not edit below this line
// END of "Frontpage Slideshow" settings
The slideshow requires that I put the folder with required files in www/mywebsite.com/fpss.
I have the files located there, and inserted the code above into a static block, followed by the word test. The word test shows up, but the slideshow itself does not.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
