    Has anyone encountered an issue where you can't go beyond 5 slides? I've currently got 8 featured pages setup but only 5 of them are appearing.

    I have the same problem, you can see it on New Folk Sounds Magazine

    In the description is says: "You can feature as many Posts and Pages as you want." Yeah, but they don't show... ;-)

    sorry for late response. only just got round to it.

    i've reverted to version 2.2 of the slider (renamed the plugin folder of my 2.4 version, downloaded the 2.2 zip from here, did upload on "add new" on the plugins page, installed and activated).

    Then all I needed to do was adjust the css in content-slider.php to match the styling i set for version 2.4 and voilà.

    6 fslides running smooth.

    However! Now the featured pages are running in a different order which is no good. I will follow up if I find the code to fix the order.

    all done! :D

    to get the slides to load in order of date (ascending=asc) just replace this:
    AND (wposts.post_type = ‘post’ OR wposts.post_type = ‘page’);

    with this:
    AND wposts.post_date < NOW() ORDER BY wposts.post_date aSC LIMIT 0,6";

    the 0,6 limits my slider to 6 slides. i guess you could set as high a limit as you like.

    Thanks for your work on this Olly. I'll give your solution a go when I get to work Monday.

    Bloke:
    Thanks! Yes and no ;-)
    I used the "News Slide" theme and did some hard work to get here ;-)

    The slider from the News Slide theme didn't work on my HOMEPAGE so I use this WP featured content slider now, that's even better. (I like the fading!)

    Fixed in newest version (2.5) - There is an option to choose if posts/pages should be limited to a specific number.

    Thanks for the bug report!

    Cheers!

    IWEBIX,

    I have version 2.5, where is the option located? I mean to change # of slides from 5 to more? I'm looking in the plugin editor.

    Never mind. I just found it on new update of your plugin.
