WP Vegas
Global option gone? (6 posts)

    Is there no longer an option to make a single slideshow global for the entire site? I was using that feature on two sites, which are both now completely lacking a background image after the update. I can't see any settings options anywhere in the admin.

    You're correct, I've removed the settings page because it was a huge chunk of code that I don't feel is necessary.

    How to add the shortcode to every page:

    All you have to do is add this code to your header.php file in your theme **after** the wp_head() hook

    <?php do_shortcode('[vegas id=12 fade=2500 delay=4500 autoplay=yes arrows=no poster=no]'); ?>

    Obviously change out the shortcode to the values you want.

    If you're not familiar with coding or need some more direction, see the codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/do_shortcode

    I'm sorry that this is inconvenient for you!

    One other thing. You're welcome to still use one of the older versions. If 1.5 worked awesome for you, then feel free to use it. You can see/download older versions here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/vegas-fullscreen-background-slider/developers/

    Hmmm...I used the global feature more often than the individual page option, I think. I guess it will be interesting to see if it really was unnecessary. I'm definitely going to miss it.

    I was trying to figure out how to get a single slideshow to display globally since I'd also need to cover archive pages, etc. I hadn't thought of inserting the short code directly into the header.php file - I'll certainly do that for now to fix my sites, but it reduces the portability of my theme.

    Overall, this is a great plugin - it's a tricky jQuery plugin to try to integrate into WordPress just because of the way it needs to be configured, but I think you've done a good job of figuring out how to make that work. I appreciate it, and the work you've put into the plugin. :-)

    Thanks Natalie, I appreciate you using the plugin and don't for a second think that your feedback is lost on me. I'm just trying to figure out a better way to implement a global option rather than the way I previously doing it. I wont make any promises as to when since I work full time and I get busier as summer goes on but I will try to make some time!

    Sorry, I know it's kind of inconvenient for you... :/

    Just a small change to the suggested code here in case anyone else comes along and needs to use it:

    <?php echo do_shortcode('[vegas id=12 fade=2500 delay=4500 autoplay=yes arrows=no poster=no]'); ?>

    You have to include echo. :-)
