Responsive Slider
Featured image link not appearing (7 posts)

    I installed the plugin, navigated to the 'Add Slide' page. Clicked the link to add a featured image. The dialog box pops up and I can upload an image.

    The image crunches correctly and is added to the media library/gallery.

    The options presented then just say 'Insert into post' rather than the usual 'use as featured image' link.

    This means I am unable to set images for my sliders.

    How can I fix this problem?

    Yeah, got the same problem. I can create a slide though, without an image. But then I can't see it in the 'all slides' view. It says that there are slides, but they aren't in the list.

    The grey admin bar on top of the page is gone too while being on the Slides tab.

    Using WP 3.3.2.

    Hi Chaps,

    I ran into this today myself.

    The plugin seems not to be adding the featured image for the custom post type so I added this:

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails', array( 'post','slides','page' ) );

    To the functions.php file (BACKUP FIRST!)

    Then I added:

    .slide-title {display:none!important;}

    To my stylesheet to hide that box in the top right corner.

    Hope this helps :)

    Hello,

    I'm having exactly the same problem. when selecting as featured image there is no button for selection at all. I can upload as many images as I want but just cannot select any of them. So my slide works as small boxes containing only the name of the slide pages.

    Paul, I tried your solution but nothing seems to be changed. Maybe I added those codes in the wrong place of the theme phps? Does it matter where I insert these in php files? I'm a real newbie.

    Thanks anyway. I hope I get this slider work because it's almost the only nice and easy slider in the gallery.

    Hi again,

    Yes, it's all about themes.. I tried it with another theme and a hidden use it as featured image button appeared.

    And I kinda found a cheating solution.. Switch to a responsive theme (i.e; Twenty Ten 1.3), create your slides and assign featured images to them. Don't forget to update. Switch back to your incompatible theme and guess what - the slides are still with featured images. Now you can used it in anywhere you like.

    At least it's not impossible now to use it. But is it worth it? I guess so. I haven't found any better and simpler slider yet.

    @Paul-M-UK Thanks so much for the suggestion. Worked perfect for me after I was having a huge issue trying to add slides.
