    I have my first wowslider installed in a WordPress 3.6 install (weaver II theme) and it was very simple to add and works great with the exception when you press the Play or pause button the browser jumps to top of the web page, this occurs both in FireFox and Chrome.

    Two pages:
    http://www.jaxfountain.com/ (Post below sticky)
    http://www.jaxfountain.com/special-features/southbank-riverwalk-slide-show/

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Jax, This is what I did to fix it myself. It is a simple A tag href change.

    Go to pages engine1/wowslider.js and engine1/wowslider.mod.js
    searched for "ws_playpause" you will find 3 separate A tags linking to href="#".
    Change all three to href="javascript:void(0);"

    href="#" is a bookmark that takes you to the top of the page. Changing it to javascript:void(0) will stop it from happening.

    Thanks for the tip however in my WordPress install there are no wowslider.js , there is a wowslider.mod.js but making the change as you suggest made no difference... (there is a script.js with the relevant code in it, changing that did not make a change either)

    What fixed it for me was /wp-content/uploads/wow-slider-plugin/1/slider.html

    Changed:

    <span class="wsl"><a href="http://wowslider.com">Website Sliders</a> by WOWSlider.com v4.5</span>
    <a href="#" class="ws_frame"></a>

    To:

    <span class="wsl"><a href="http://wowslider.com">Website Sliders</a> by WOWSlider.com v4.5</span>
    <a href="javascript:void(0);" class="ws_frame"></a>

    Thanks for the tip :)

    Seems the word press version of WOWslider is different then the one I installed yesterday on my home machine. Seems you found the culprit A tag. Thank you for clarifying it on this site for other people to use.
