Looks like you might be publishing to AS3? If so the code you need is different, see below

import net.slideshowpro.slideshowpro.*;

var my_ssp:SlideShowPro;

var paramObj:Object=LoaderInfo(this.root.loaderInfo).parameters;

for (var param in paramObj) {
	if (param=="ImagesPath") {


HTH :)

Edit: Ooops missed a bit when c&p earlier, sorry half asleep, the import net.slideshowpro line..!

Hi UncleCheese,
Just wondering if you're aware of any known issues with this module and SilverStripe version 2.4.1.

I've had two problems:

1. The configuration tab for a SlideShowPro page is blank
2. The Slideshow doesn't open because the XML isn't coming through. If I try to open the XML link directly in the browser, I see an error page.

I've installed the latest versions of all your modules from SVN.

I have another install on version 2.3.4 that works great using the same host (GoDaddy).

Hi, MrPepperoni,

What do you mean by "see an error page?"

Sorry for not being more specific. When I open the XML - in the browser, the server is not returning the slideshow data. It does set the content type in the header as text/xml, but the data is just a SilverStripe error page:

Website Error
There has been an error

The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

I'm new to this module and have a hard time doing slideshow pro integration.

And reply to Blo's method ( 2nd last of the page )

I downloaded the "slideshow pro for flash 197 Trial", and after the extract, I didn't see any FLA file inside?? ( I only see extension .mxp file )

So, it will be appreciated if there is any help for this. Thanks a lot.

Hi Uncle Cheese

I assume you know this but you can get the standalone .swf of ssp to work by adding this to the javascript file

// SWFObject embed
var flashvars = {
loadParams: "true",
xmlFilePath: "$ImagesPath",
xmlFileType: "Default",
paramXMLPath: "/slideshow_pro/templates/param.xml", //go to wherever you want
initialURL: escape(document.location),
ImagesPath: "$ImagesPath",
startAlbumID: "album-8"
