[resolved] [Plugin: WooCommerce] Slider not working on Wootique (28 posts)

    I have searched for the solution to this problem, but to no avail.

    I have Wootique installed as the main theme of my storefront. No matter what I try, I cannot get the slider/static portion of the home page function.

    Anyone else with this issue? Anyone have a possible fix?

    Thank you in advance.

    Cheers,
    Stefani

    I have tried to look at the source code for the demo site and compare it to mine, and the difference is that the demo calls forth this:

    <div id="featured-products" class="fp-slider">
    		<h2>Featured Products</h2>
    
    		<ul class="featured-products">
    
    			<li class="flipper">

    and mine does not, even though I have the slider selected.

    In addition, with a blank home page, there is no slider called forth either. I have manually inserted short codes to get the featured products to show.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh, BTW, I set up a fresh install and the same problem happens. I am using Powweb as my server.

    Ensure you have latest versions of both the theme and framework - I believe there were some patches related the the slider.

    BTW if you have bought any WC extensions you'll have access to the Woo forums where you'll get better support than over here :)

    Lizzie, I have the same problem.

    Just found the problem. It´s a version error.
    You have to edit the index.php
    Change this:

    ?>
    
    	<div id="featured-products" class="<?php if ( get_option( 'woo_featured_product_style' ) == 'slider' ) { echo 'fp-slider'; } ?>">
    		<h2><?php _e( 'Featured Products', 'woothemes' ); ?></h2>
    
    		<ul class="featured-products">
    <?php
    $args = array( 'post_type' => 'product', 'posts_per_page' => get_option( 'woo_featured_product_limit' ), 'meta_key' => 'featured', 'meta_value' => 'yes' );
    $loop = new WP_Query( $args );
    while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post(); $_product = &new woocommerce_product( $loop->post->ID );
    ?>
    			<li class="flipper">

    for this:

    ?>
    
    	<div id="featured-products" class="<?php if ( get_option( 'woo_featured_product_style' ) == 'slider' ) { echo 'fp-slider'; } ?>">
    		<h2><?php _e( 'Featured Products', 'woothemes' ); ?></h2>
    
    		<ul class="featured-products">
    <?php
    $args = array( 'post_type' => 'product', 'posts_per_page' => get_option( 'woo_featured_product_limit' ), 'meta_key' => '_featured', 'meta_value' => 'yes' );
    $loop = new WP_Query( $args );
    while ( $loop->have_posts() ) : $loop->the_post(); $_product = &new WC_Product( $loop->post->ID );
    ?>
    			<li class="flipper">

    Thank you for this. I tried it and I still do not have the slider. Any other suggestions?

    I did update the framework today and that didn't work either.

    Cheers,

    It´s a theme update, download it and re-install and it is probably going to work. Don´t forget to change settings to activate the slider of course.
    Are you sure you changed woocommerce_product for WC_Product at the index.php?
    For me it works now... keep on looking for something in the code.
    Anyway, your shop is already nice and working.
    Congrats.

    I did the theme update, downloaded it, and re-installed.

    I changed the settings to activate the slider.

    I changed woo commerce_product for WC_Product at the Index.php.

    Is it my browser?

    One question----you say to change the settings to activate the slider. What settings are you referring to? The pages section of Wootique offer me either a slider or a static display of featured products. There really isn't an on/off switch for the slider. Correct? Or am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance!

    I know I am using a free theme and a free plugin to get my sale site operational, but is there any way for you, mikejolley, to assist me in making the theme that woo commerce created work?

    It would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Stefani

    Still having the same issue. Am I the only one?

    Fixed it. If you select a static page as your main page in Settings-->Reading, instead of Your Latest Posts, you lose the slider. Simple solution.

    @Stefani

    Thank you for this information, I have been looking and looking for a solution and yours is the best one I found. Had no idea it was the static page causing the problem. Thanks!

    I am having the same problem, but my Settings are already set to display my latest posts.

    Anybody have any insights on this?

    Wootique 1.0.2, Framework 5.3.12, WordPress 3.3.2.

    Hi not sure if this is the right place to ask this questions but the product images onmy wootique featured product slider are cut off so you only see part of the product image - does anyone know how to fix this? My side is http://www.odorex.co.nz.

    @odorex, I had the same problem and found out that it was caused by my initial meddling with thumbnail sizes on the catalog tab of the settings.

    Here is the link to the setting page I was talking about:
    (add your URL in the front of course)
    /wp-admin/admin.php?page=woocommerce&tab=catalog

    I had changed my thumbnail size for large icons to be 200x600 pixels because I thought it would be better for my products to be longer than wider.

    Upon restoring the thumbnail back to 600x600 and then downloading the regenerate thumbnails plugin (to fix the oddities), my issue resolved. It had also fixed images in my Featured items, Top Sold widget areas too.

    Here is a link to the plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

    I hope this resolves your issue.

    Here is the solution wich is very simpel.

    Ok, for all you people out there i found the solution!
    It's very simpel.

    When you made a product just publish the product.
    Then go to in your admin Product->Products.
    Then you see all your products.
    When you hoover a product you get some options like, Fast edit ( i think that is said in english cause mine is in dutch) etc.
    Klik on fast edit, en there you can select a option Featured (in dutch called Uitgelicht)
    When you vink that option the artice becomes visible on youre homepage Featured products Slider :D

    Thanks for the notes @ferrucio. Worked for me

    No, sorry no other thoughts from my site.
    Are you sure it isnt in the product "fast edit" page?

    I can go look for you in youre wordpress admin, if you set me up an account. Maybe you see something over the head.

    Our Wootique slider isn't working properly anymore. Doesn't appear to be a plugin incompatibility issue, either. Might anyone have an idea?

    It's the "Featured Reviews" section at WordPress Shopping Cart Reviews...Wootique's featured products slider works initially, but try sliding back and it all breaks down.

    All advice appreciated!

    Hi, stifmeister1976,

    Thanks for taking a look! I've been puzzling this thing out myself for a while and I seem to have narrowed the matter down to two variables: 1) heavily taxed system resources and 2) Google Chrome. On my end, it appears that Google Chrome, under certain conditions of heavy usage, will screw up the jQuery involved in Wootique's slider.

    I'm not 100% sure about this, but it looks like that's what's happening. Thanks again for taking the time to take a look!

    Np. Were here to help.
    I,ve got a question for you also, and i see at youre site it can be done:D

    Youre welcome text on youre main page.. that is a post? right?
    In Wootique theres an option were you can set the latest post to be above the slider.
    I want also a welcome post at the top, but when i set the post to sticky, the second post is placed under de welcome post at the main page.

    How did you set it so that ony the welcome post is seen at the beginning of youre site?

    Thanx.

    Ah...that was such a hassle to figure out for me, too!

    In the end, the solution was to give the homepage welcome post its own category, then set within WooThemes' theme options to hide this category from being displayed on the blog page.
