This error appears if you are running PHP 4 on your server. This is a bug in PHP 4 itself that is causing this error to occur. Please contact your web hosting company and ask them how to upgrade your web server to PHP 5; this is usally a quick switch flip in your web host's control panel.
Make sure that your theme is running both the
wp_head(); command and the
wp_footer(); command, otherwise SlideDeck will not work properly. If you are manually loading jQuery in your template or theme after the
<?php wp_head(); ?> command, you will overwrite the SlideDeck plugin extension. Make sure that
<?php wp_head(); ?> is the last thing loading in your
wp_enqueue_script(); command in your theme's
functions.php file. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_enqueue_script for more information on how to implement this.
We've made some serious improvements to the way we are implementing interface elements, doing previews, etc. in version 1.2 that may resolve some of these issues. Please try the latest version of SlideDeck and let us know how it is working for you.
Sometimes you might see extra spaces between links or "closed" slides, this is usually due to a conflict with the WordPress theme you are running on your website and the SlideDeck CSS. We are constantly working to improve the stability of the CSS of SlideDeck, but sometimes there are some themes that do some CSS definitions we cannot accommodate for. We recommend looking into getting Firebug for Firefox and investigate the elements that look strange and try and correct your theme's conflicting CSS.
We updated the WYSIWYG editor implementation method in version 1.2 to be more compatible with other plugins and to process shortcodes. Please be advised that it is up to the plugin author to choose to display their plugin buttons in WYSIWYG editors used outside of the Posts and Pages section of WordPress. So, you still may not see your shortcode buttons, but we do still process any shortcodes entered manually. Any sort of media though can still be embedded in a SlideDeck. Just click on the HTML edit tab for the slide and copy-and-paste the embed code for a video into a SlideDeck's content area.
Flash doesn't play nicely all the time with fancy interactions like SlideDeck and the like, luckily there's an easy fix. Just add the the
wmode="opaque" parameter to your embed code. For example, with a YouTube video embed code, this will change the code from this:
<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/au3-hk-pXsM&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/au3-hk-pXsM&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>
<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/au3-hk-pXsM&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><param name="wmode" value="opaque"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/au3-hk-pXsM&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385" wmode="opaque"></embed></object>
Take note of the addition of the
<param name="wmode" value="opaque"></param> tag inside the
<object> tag and the
wmode="opaque" attribute on the
We provide a few skins with SlideDeck, all of which you can edit. You will find all the skins located in the "skins" folder in the SlideDeck WordPress Plugin folder. Edit the CSS files in the skins folders to make changes. Just be sure and backup your changes before updating your plugin, otherwise you'll loose them!
