Auto play of root folder pix... can't get it to work.

Hi everyone
I have forgotten how to get my slide show to automatically start for my new album. I did it when I created my first album some time ago (see http://www.jomp-photographics.com/galleries.html), but can not remember how. I am sure it is an issue with where I place the root gallery images and the auto show / auto slide show settings in Options > Slides, but no combination is working.
Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance!

Or maybe this feature only works when posted online rather than previewed?

nope, that is not it because I have now uploaded the test file.

Any idea why my album won't auto-play???

I'm generally very hesitant to help with FotoPlayer problems, partly because I've never used the skin, and partly because its developer is charging for licenses (let him provide the support - I'm not making a dime off this).

But a quick test tells me that if I go to Album > Settings > FotoPlayer > Options, and check "Auto play 1st photo," "Slideshow play current folder," and "Auto start slideshow," I end up with an album that automatically starts playing the slideshow, starting with the first image in the first folder.

Does that not work for you, or not do what you want?

Hi everyone. It occurred to me to try another pic in the root, and that worked. It turns out either Jalbum or Fotoplayer can not auto play gifs. Once I made them jpgs, everything
Worked fine. Live and learn.
