Blank Blidget...images not showing up in slideshow

Hello!
I'm trying to create a blidget on Widgetbox that shows the latest posts from each one of my 5 blogs for my homepage. It works great, but I can't seem to get the photos to show up. I played around with it a few days ago, and the photos showed up then, but now, I can't get anything to show up. I'm so confused, and don't know what to do next.

My site is www.gwens-nest.com. All the photos show up in the rss feeds.
(There are currently mini-slideshows for several of the blogs, but I am going to dump those once the Blidget is finished.)
I haven't uploaded the Blidget yet, as I will need to pay for Pro service first, and I don't want to pay and then it not work for me. Kwim? But if I *need* to upload it to the site (blank and all) to get help, I will do it.

I don't know if you can see my widget here:
http://www.widgetbox.com/blog_widget....
They won't let me publish it to the gallery until I upgrade to pro...which, again; I will do if I need to in order to get help with this.

Can you help me? I love my slideshow, and am so excited to get it working and published ♥

Thank you!

Hello Gwen,

I am not familiar with Blidget so am not able to assist with any trouble you might be having with creating this. But, can you tell me why you think you need to upgrade to Yola Pro, do you need to be able to upgrade to Javascript? If you can give me more information about how the widget gets installed, I can let you know if it is possible to add it, and if Yola Pro is necessary.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi Emmy,
I'm sorry...I have been too vague. I meant that I needed to upgrade to Widgetbox Pro services to get the style of slideshow that I want. I'm guessing that it's called a blidget because it's for a blog? I wanted to have the option of adding tabs with a different feed for each tab. The idea is to make a slideshow that scrolls through the most current posts for each of my blogs.

I'm not sure about installation, but I noticed that Widgetbox is compatible with Yola, so I guessed that it would work. But the photos aren't coming up. Is this a common problem with Widgetbox slideshows?

Thank you!
Gwen

Dear Emmy,

Well, I got the slideshow to work!!! BUT. It is a javascript slideshow. Please help. My first attempt failed. I inserted a html widget into my website page, and pasted the javascript code. It didn't accept the code.
I could also have chosen a flash code, or a number of other codes that are specific to certain sites or applications (blogger, wordpress, linked in, facebook, etc.)

Any ideas for me?

Thank you!
Gwen
