I can't get the HTML/JavaScript plug-in to accept the code for a flickr slide show. The same code I'm trying to use here will work on my Blogger page. I insert the code in the box and click Next. A message SAYS loading but I don't believe it - nothing happens until I finally give up (after a half hour) and press Cancel. It doesn't matter if I check the box to Allow JavaScript or not. Same results. Nothing.

Can anyone get their flickr slide shows to run on PBworks? I am administrator for this wiki. Is there some setting that I haven't found to enable the use of a HTML/Scripts plugin? All the documentation that I can find talks about a PBwikiMagic so I think it is old.
