I recently purchased SleekTabs for my folio. I installed sexy-cycle (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sexycycle-for-wordpress/) and inserted it into a static page.
If i go on my http://www.myurl.com/page-name/ I am able to see it working. However the navigation in SleekTabs adds a # automatically and modifies my urls to http://www.myurl.com/#page-name, and in this view I am not able to see my slideshow.
How can I modify the code to either remove the # tag, or add code to make the plugin work? Are there compatible slideshow gallery type plugins that would work?
I use MAMP on my machine

I think the problem is related to the gallery control buttons. They’re empty links so if you click on them a “#” appears in the browser bar. The only wired thing is that it’s insert between domain and page name and not at the end. Can you set up a live demo. Maybe I can debug the js and find the problem.April 23, 2011 at 5:02 am #44286
I had a look through the code of sexycycle and it doesn’t seem to be using attaching a # to the url.

I haven’t modified your code at all. Thanks a lot.April 23, 2011 at 6:26 pm #44287
I must admit I can’t find the problem. I tried debugging the js with firebug but can’t find the cause….April 23, 2011 at 6:46 pm #44288
Ok but is your code functioning properly?
Are there any gallery plugins that are compatible with this theme? Please help.

You can try nextgen galery plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/ – I use it on varioussites and I love it :)April 24, 2011 at 4:45 am #44290
Problem is that NextGen is conflicting with your theme. I believe the solution is to get NextGen to load in an iframe, but I am unable to find any tutorials or answers on the forums. Any thoughts?

If you use the thumbnail gallery Nextgen shouldn’t conflict because no js files are called. You can also try to use the wordpress gallery – just attach images to your post/page by using the media/image uploader button on the left top of your post/page editor – the insert following shortcode in the textfield:
This will display all attached images. I’ll ask Kriesi to send me a copy of sleektabs and will test it with nextgen gallery.April 24, 2011 at 5:07 pm #44292
I already tried [gallery] unsuccessfully. I need a sliding gallery to work on this, and also a modal gallery. I look forward to your findings.

So I got NextGen to display the gallery in thumbnail format as you suggested. However when trying to open individual images it takes me to the actual image file rather than using the modal window.
I am using the Lightbox effect on NextGen. http://thekitchenof.com/test/#galleryApril 25, 2011 at 6:21 am #44294
1) Try to update your prettyphoto files by downloading the newest version here: http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/
Then use prettyphoto as your nextgen lightbox. Go to your admin panel > Gallery (Nexgen options panel) > Options
There you’ll see Tabs at the top: One tab is callled “effects”. Click on it.
