Gallery Won't Load in Chrome

Posted on 2014-08-15

A client / friend has asked me to look at their site, because their gallery has stopped working in Chrome.

It works fine in other browsers, but i can't figure out why it is not working in Chrome. I've tried disabling all other plugins apart from the gallery plugin itself (Fla Gallery).

Anyone any ideas.

Could anyone recommend another gallery plugin to use. Something lightweight and easy to use.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Actually, on Win8.1 updated all the way, as well as Chrome all the way up-to-date, it shows no problem (identical to IE11)

    Opera 12.17 shows the pics but not in full Gallery mode (only 3 pics), but that's because I don't have flash enabled for Opera (Flash is built-in into Chrome).

    Hence you should also test some more, on other PC's and stuff. If you see it works properly, focus on the PC at the customer's side, something is probably blocking the flash code.

    Thanks Kimputer.

    They are not loading for me or for some other users.

    Can you suggest a lightweight Gallery plugin?

    It has to do with Flash plugin compatibility between browsers.

    Look into NextGEN as a non-Flash replacement.

    works for me running win7 and chrome (mostly up to date). my guess is that it's not working because of the flash component. do you have flash installed on your computer?

    there are countless plug-ins out there, especially if you use jquery. I personally like LightView, it's light weight, and easy to set up.
