    Default Captions not showing on Full Page Slideshow

    My captions are not showing on my Full Page Slideshow. I am using the code from this URL: The actual slideshow does work. I have downloaded the 4 files in step 2 of the directions to my server. The pictures are fading in and out and the slideshow is stopping after 2 loops. The call to get the captions is not working correctly. Nor is the caption in the static_text_area showing during the slideshow. I am on IE8. How can I get the captions to show during the slide show. My code is below. I have tried using the playlist.json version and the playlist version is what I have below. Neither will show the captions. Thanks in advance for your help.
    	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="smooth_slider.css">
    	.slideshowwrapper{ /* dimensions of outermost slideshow container */
    		width: 900px;
    		height: 500px;
    		position: relative;
    		overflow: hidden;
