Captain Slider

Probably the Best Free jQuery Slider/Slideshow Plugin for WordPress. Responsive, Settings & Multiple Sliders!

I’m getting the following error message when using PHP to display my slider (with all slides):
Warning: Missing argument 1 for nextslider_slider_template(), called in etc. etc.

Some hosting set-ups may have this issue. Just give it an empty parameter like so:

// All slides, with empty parameter set to stop warning from appearing
<?php echo nextslider_slider_template(''); ?>

My slider isn’t displaying the specific slider I want?

Make sure that you’re stating the ID correctly like the examples above. Remember that you can find the slider ID under Slides > Sliders.

My slider’s just not displaying!

If you’ve done everything else right and it’s still not displaying, you’re probably having a jQuery conflict with another plugin/theme. Try reverting back to the default Twenty Eleven or Twenty Twelve theme and disabling each plugin one by one.

Can I display multiple sliders on one page?

Why yes you can!

Which slider does Captain Slider use?

Captain Slider proudly uses the lovely Flex Slider by WooThemes

How can I say thanks Captain Theme?
