This error indicates that you didn’t configure showcase properly. You probably already created the showcase, but didn’t select it for presentation in gallery. Another reason is you probably are using some SEF extension that interferes with JSN ImageShow data transfer mechanism.

Please watch the JSN ImageShow Quick Start Video tutorial to learn how to configure showcase properly for presentation.

    I noticed the same issue, but then i noticed i had some trouble with installing the language files in the backend. Check it in com-imageshow > Configuration -> Languages.. I noticed that 1 language was missing so i did reinstall the language an voila problem solved.

    "This error indicates that you didn’t configure showcase properly. You probably already created the showcase, but didn’t select it for presentation in gallery. Another reason is you probably are using some SEF extension that interferes with JSN ImageShow data transfer mechanism."

    Or, you installed an update from joomlashine and it BROKE YOUR SHOWCASE.

    Second time this has happened to me. Guys, pls fix this.

    Dear Sl. sniffer,

    About problem with 'Unable to connect to the database:Could not an Error:xml file', it's problem with missing xml file in the package install. I think you should recheck it before install it, make sure you install right package. You can see and JSN ImageShow (free version) via link http://www.joomlashine.com/joomla-extensions/jsn-imageshow-download.html

    About 2nd problem, could you please explain more about an error message with template? Which template are you using? Also with problem with the process bar in Internet Explorer.

    I created a frontpage slide show by following the tutorial. I'm using Decore template. However, when I try to select the module's position on the front page, there isn't a place for me to put it? No matter what I select, I still get the showcase not configured error message. However, the slideshow shows up correctly in every box I select. Why isn't there a layout box on the front page for the slideshow?

    Hi,

    Could you please provide me your site URL to check?

    Please select the Promo position where you can show the imageshow. There are also many other positions for you to show the imageshow. You can check all position names in our Configuration manual >> Layout.
    Check JSN Decor layout here http://www.joomlashine.com/joomla-templates/jsn-decor-docs.zip

    It's a bit hard for me to use the Decore template. I keep getting showcase not configured error when I try to move the module.
