Responsive Slider
[resolved] v0.1.5 is broken: No "Add Slider" Option (7 posts)

    I really wish that the interface was more user friendly than this, but oh well. Looks like none of the slider plugins are up to that task of providing a good one.

    Still, I could overlook that if this worked. Instead, I fail to see a "Add Slider" option in the admin sidebar. I have the "Slides" menu with All Slides, Add New Slide, and Settings. But without the Add Slider this plugin doesn't work.

    I got the same thing on ONE of my websites, works on some of them. Strange :S

    By an "Add Slider" option do you mean a way to add the slider to the site? If that is the case there is no "Add Slider" option. There are two ways to add the slider to the site outlined under the installation tab.

    Alternatively, if you want to place it in a widget area you can do what I did:
    1) Add this to your theme's functions.php
    /** Enable shortcodes in widgets */
    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    2) Place a text widget in the widget area where you want the slider to appear.

    3) Add the shortcode to the text widget, [responsive_slider].

    That works for me.

    Thanks, the [responsive_slider] shortcode works.

    However, I could have sworn that the documentation used to say that there should be the Admin > Slides> Add Slider option for adding multiple sliders.

    Was I imagining things or thinking of a different plugin?

    I'm not sure if you have been imagining things. I have used the plugin for a version of two and can't remember seeing one.

    Looking through all the settings and documentation I can't see anything about being able to add multiple sliders. It seems to only have the option for one.

    Thanks Darren,

    I wasn't talking about actually seeing it. I thought I saw a screenshot that indicated that there would be that option, which is why I went looking for it.

    Anyway, thanks. I do like this slider, but will stick with Soliloquy for now. It's a little easier to configure and manage the slides. But I'm still looking for something better.

    If Soliloquy is easier to configure than this I will definitely have to have a look at it. I chose this one because it seemed fool-proof for a non-technical client.
