Problems to get it working

Hi, i use the basic slideshow Active slideshow extension and hoped to get images slide dynamicaly. In my database i added a number of image files (eg. image, image1, image2, etc...) but even with 2 images as a try-out i can't get it working. Images do not load and i see on my load bar Preloading image 1 from 2 but thats it. I directed the dynamic code of the file name in the database to the correct directory but NOGO. Please advise! Thanks in advance

Hi Mark - Yes this workflow applies also for the PHP server model. It is the way DW works visually with DB data and generation - no matter what server model you choose.
