I'm using views_slideshow on http://timebank.org.uk/event/2010/12 (it's the block under the big orange graphic).

Previous and Next are appearing, but in the HTML they are just span tags, not anchors.

Today I upgraded Drupal 6 to the latest core version, along with Views and Views_Slideshow which are both running the latest dev versions.

Then I noticed my slideshow wasn't working at all - bit strange that - but I remade the view and it all looks fine, apart from the controls.

Any suggestions?

jQuery.extend(Drupal.settings, { "basePath": "/", "admin_menu": { "margin_top": 1 }, "viewsSlideshow": { "slideshows-event3_slideshow": { "methods": [ "viewsSlideshowCycle", "viewsSlideshowPagerFields", "viewsSlideshowControlsText", "viewsSlideshowSlideCounter" ], "paused": 0 } }, "viewsSlideshowCycle": { "#views_slideshow_cycle_main_slideshows-event3_slideshow": { "num_divs": 10, "id_prefix": "#views_slideshow_cycle_main_", "div_prefix": "#views_slideshow_cycle_div_", "vss_id": "slideshows-event3_slideshow", "effect": "fade", "transition_advanced": 0, "timeout": 5000, "speed": 700, "delay": 0, "sync": 1, "random": 0, "pause": 1, "pause_on_click": 0, "start_paused": 1, "remember_slide": 0, "remember_slide_days": 1, "pause_when_hidden": 0, "pause_when_hidden_type": "full", "amount_allowed_visible": "", "nowrap": 1, "fixed_height": 1, "items_per_slide": 1, "cleartype": 1, "cleartypenobg": 1, "advanced_options": "{}", "action_advanced": 0 } }

I need to still make some css changes. It's on my todo. Thanks for testing.

can you please test this out. It adds an underline and pointer on hover. I'll leave the colors up to the sites css.

I'm having the same issue, where the controls aren't clickable. Unfortunately, this patch didn't fix it. (Is the patch at #2 for the 6x-3.x-dev? It looks like it is meant for the 7 version, since 7 uses ($vars) as arguments and 6 does not.) (I'm using the January 5 dev version of 6.)

If it's any help, I'm also getting the js error, "location undefined" in views.slideshow.js at line 53. ...if (Drupal.settings.viewsSlideshowPagerFields[uniqueID][location].activatePauseOnHover) { ...

Finally, I am also am getting an alert that says, 500 error, when I install json2 for the advanced settings. (Sorry if these are three different issues, but I suspect they are related.)
