    The plugin is messing up the PHP Session data when it is active.

    WP Carousel uses 2 session variables to store information about the active extras: $_SESSION['WP_CAROUSEL_CUSTOM_EXTRAS'] and $_SESSION['WP_CAROUSEL_EXTRAS'].

    It uses two other session variables to store whether WordPress is executing the loop and the list of carousels shown.

    It won't use any other session variable.

    If you are more specific I could help you more.

    Are you checking if a session already exists before doing a session_start? Otherwise you will destroy the existing session.

    WP Carousel does not use session_start(). WordPress starts the session before WP Carousel's code is executed.

    I'm very busy right now, and I can't fix a problem that I can't see.

    If you think WP Carousel is causing this problem with sessions, just try to fix it. If you find the problem I'll fix it as soon as possible.

    In any case, I want to rewrite the plugin and fix a lot of problems, but not now. I have no time to rewrite the plugin right now nor to look for a problem I can't reproduce.
