Promotion Slider
[resolved] not loading correctly after updating the plugin (12 posts)

    I updated the plugin yesterday, and now when loading/refreshing the page, the 4 featured images in the homepage promotion are visible horizontally down the page. They go away after a couple seconds.

    However, the images are there permanently when viewing the page from mobile browsers.

    I've removed 3 of the 4 slides because they were all showing horizontally on the page, overlaying the other content.

    @gail,

    If you can provide a link to the page where this is happening, I would be glad to take a look.

    Same here for http://extend.se/version2/

    It says version "3.3.4" in the Edit plugins "Editing promotion-slider/index.php (active)" window. It says src="http://extend.se/version2/wp-content/plugins/promotion-slider/js/promoslider.js?ver=3.5.1" in html head, if that's relevant.

    JQuery 1.8.3, if that's relevant.

    The new site is installed in a subfolder, /version2/. Is that the reason for seeing 3.3.4 in the Edit Plugins window? If so, how do I correctly install it so it's found correctly?

    Hope this information helps.

    Strangely, it adds a note under that script tag: "Reload the page to get source for: http://extend.se/version2/wp-content/plugins/promotion-slider/js/promoslider.js?ver=3.5.1"

    Ah, for some reason the folders and files get the wrong permissions when you copy a site and update using the built in WP plugin updater. (Got 403 error on the JS link above). The js folder had 710 and index.php had 640. Setting folders to 755 and files to 644 fixed it. (Please let me know if these are unsafe for plugins!)

    The slider didn't fit in the splash container anymore and we had to adjust the paging div, but that might be the CSS of the customer causing that.

    @HenrikErlandsson,

    I'm not sure what to make of the above. I see two sites, both running older versions and working fine.

    @micah -- Thanks so much for responding.

    The site is: http://www.21stcenturydems.org/

    I have only one slide up now, but this is what it looks like with more than one: http://www.21stcenturydems.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Capture.gif

    @gail,

    It appears as though you are using cloudflare and the Javascript and CSS is being combined / minified. After a quick search through your existing Javascript and CSS files, I didn't see anything related to the Promotion Slider. Probably just a simple issue of actually loading the Javascript and CSS files.

    Thanks very much. Will work on that.

    @Micah, well I fixed the problem yesterday, so naturally both of them work. Can't have non-working sites online. The below page says the latest version is 3.3.4. Is it? If the plugin editor says 3.3.4 in the source and I still have an old plugin, then I don't know how to check the version.

    @HenrikErlandsson,

    My bad. That is the latest version.
