[resolved] Images in rotation won't stay linked to an external site (4 posts)

    Hi,
    I am also having trouble adding links to the images in rotation. I did not see anybody had solved this yet, so forgive me if this is resolved. I am using version 0.2.1 of DK's image rotator and version 3.4.2 of WordPress. I had the 3 ads linking to their respective external site and added a 4th image with a link and hit save and all the links even in those previously save disappeared. Is it possible to do in this version? I see people even in the latest version having the same trouble. What is the trick to it? Can you manually link the images. Really don't want upgrade the version or delete and re-add all the images. Suggustions anyone? the site in question is http://www.MyCoffeeNewsMD.com I am doing this for a client and to my understanding this feature has never worked.
    Thanks,
    Kerry

    Please update to version 0.2.4. This very well could solve your problem. Also, try removing the widget and re-adding it and all of your settings.

    Thanks,

    The problem is still happening.

    I removed the widget and re-added all the images and links. It worked fine until I changed the order of the images, then I lost all the links again.

    Does the same thing if you add a new image to an existing Rotator, will work fine when you first set it up and enter your images and links. If you edit the widget by resorting or adding any new images, the links will break.

    Here's the site I have it running on now - http://www.oakvillethunder.ca/

    This is a great Plugin, I hope you can trouble shoot this issue, I want to keep using this!

    There's a new update out, 0.2.5! It aims to solve the disappearing links bug once and for all. It was happening while adding/removing/sorting images.

    Also new in this update:

    1. Option to add no follow to links
    2. Width and height attributes in image tag
    3. Uses anchor tags instead of javascript for links

    Thanks for using IRW!
