Slideshow in modern theme not working


I’m trying to implement JM_slideshow in modern theme.

So, i’ve copied app and skin. I’ve copied also joomlart folder to app/skin/frontend/default/modern/

I’ve create jmslideshow.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
<reference name="head">
<action method="addCss"><stylesheet>joomlart/jmslideshow/css/jm.slideshow.css</stylesheet></action>


<reference name="header">
<block type="joomlart_jmslideshow/list" name="jmslideshow" >
<action method="set">


On CMS home in backoffice, i’ve add in "general" panel :

{{block type=’joomlart_jmslideshow/list’ name="jmslideshow" }}

On frontpage, it seems to load jmslideshow css, and /skin/frontend/default/default/joomlart/jmslideshow/js/jm.slideshow.js

Image is load, but nothing is displayed. What ‘s wrong ?

Think there’s also a bug on image path, i’ve configured /media/slideshow and it point to media/slideshow/media/slideshow/

Here’s the dev adress:

Thanks for your help

Hi you

you have not upgrade scriptaculous yet.

Please read our user guider:

We do uses jQuery in our JM Slideshow, thus you need to update Javascript library built in default Magento in order to ensure the JM Slideshow works properly.

Steps to update:

1. Get the latest version of the (1.8.2 right now):
2. Upload the file to [Magento]/js/scriptaculous
