    Hi,

    I am using flexslider with meta slider, i am having a few problems though. I Can't re-order my slides, is there a problem? drag and drop isn't working. Also PNG isn't supported, its making the background white, so i'm having to use gifs, however the image quality isn't as high.

    The re-ordering is my main problem though as the gifs is a work around.

    thanks

    Re-ordering appears to be a firefox problem, i tried chrome and it works.

    thanks

    Hi Laura,

    Thanks for the report, I'll check in Firefox and get it fixed for the next release.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Do you have an update on why png's aren't working? gifs are very old school for transparency and aren't providing the detail that i need on each image.

    thanks

    Hi Laura,

    PNGs should work, could you send me a link to your site please?

    Regards,

    It isn't live yet, i'm working locally, but it adds a white background on to the image. I have seen a few other people report the same issue. If you like i can send you a screenshot if you have an email address?

    PNG's work fine on the rest of my site, just not with this plugin.

    thanks

    Hi Laura,

    Before the issue wasn't really with PNGs not being transparent; flexslider had a white background applied to it, giving the impression that the PNGs also had a white background. Meta Slider uses built in WordPress functionality to manipulate the images so if PNGs are working on the rest of your site, then they should in Meta Slider too.

    Ideally I'd need a link to the site so I can see the images and check the markup/css to find out whats up, could you upload it somewhere?

    Regards,
    Tom.

    Its adding the background colour to the png itself. the PNG in the media file is fine, if you view the png through the link that metaslider is outputting, then you see the background on the image.

    I'm unable to put it live at the moment unfortunately. Once i do i will be able to show you what it is doing. In the meantime it would be great if i could show you the image that its outputting.

    thanks

    Hi Laura,

    Certainly, email it through to tom [@] matchalabs.com and I'll take a look.

    Could you also confirm that PNGs (with transparent backgrounds) remain transparent, even when resized, when using them in other parts of WordPress - for example a thumbnail for a post?

    Regards,
    Tom

    Hi Laura,

    [for anyone reading this ticket in the future, we've discussed this via email and it appears the transparency issue is only apparent on a local workspace - although I'm waiting confirmation]

    Just testing the FireFox issue and I can't reproduce the issue here. I'm using FF 21.0.

    Could you confirm you're hitting the save button after reordering the slides?

    Regards,
    Tom

    Hi,

    I downgraded to version 1.3. It appears that they changed something with the images in version 2 and since then there has been this problem. Keep a back up of your current version though if you have anything worth while just to be on the safe side, but I didn't have any problems using an older version.

    Let me know how you get on.
    Thanks

    Thanks alot, it works perfectly now.

    The only change I had to make was in css, because the first navigating dot below sticked to close to the next:

    .flex-control-nav li:first-child { margin: 0px 6px !important; }

    That's it. I really hope, that this great plugin is developed further on. The problem with the transparency showed up, because I could not add images in vertical format to the slider - it just busted my layout.
    If you ever find a (responsive) solution for that - let me now!

    Hi verolavero,

    Great to hear it's working for you now. Rest assured that we'll continue development of this plugin. As soon as we can reproduce the transparent image problem, we'll look to fix it.

    Could you send the images that were giving you problems to tom [@] matchalabs.com please?

    Regards,
    Tom

    Hi verolavero,

    Thanks for sending the image through - much appreciated. I've actually been able to replicate it (:D)

    Here's what I've found:

    The issue is recorded here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/23039

    Using WordPress 3.5.2-alpha
    - Slideshow size set to slightly smaller than the image: transparency works
    - Slideshow size set to same dimensions as the image: transparency breaks

    Using WordPress 3.6-beta1
    - Slideshow size set to slightly smaller than the image: transparency works
    - Slideshow size set to same dimensions as the image: transparency works

    So, it's a bug in WordPress which has been fixed in 3.6, and is only apparent when the slide size is the same size as the slideshow.

    I would suggest sticking with the latest version of Meta Slider if possible as 2.0+ is "better" than 1.3, maybe just reduce the height of the slideshow by 1px to force a resize (and therefore retain transparency), or upgrade to WP 3.6.

    Regards,
    Tom.

    I'm currently using WordPress 3.5.2-alpha (german) and set the Slideshow 1px smaller: transparency works!

    Thanks alot!
