Responsive Slider
Responsive Slider doesn't work (9 posts)

    I installed Responsive Slider to my theme and activated it. But I don't see any way to set it up or to insert it into my pages or posts.

    Wondering if there is a conflict with my theme. This is my theme:
    http://themeforest.net/item/office-responsive-business-theme/1718861?ref=wpexplorer

    Its a responsive theme with a slider but their slider forces me to have the slider in places where I don't want it. I want to add a responsive slider to the text editor part of the page. My test site is located here and I want to replace the image with a slider in that page. Thanks.

    If I can add a slider to posts or pages anywhere on my site, how do I add images to the actual slider? I see no instructions for available shortcode parameters or to create group of images.

    Or does this slider only pull from images featured in posts?

    You add images by adding items to the "Slides", in the left hand WP menu.
    Each slide has a title and a link URL. You add the image to the slide by setting the "Featured image" of the Slide.
    Each slide will then appear in the slider once you have added the shortcode to your post or page.

    As far as I know, there are no parameters for the shortcode.

    @Nicholas I have found the "set as featured image" does not work so I worked out a quick fix: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-responsive-slider-featured-image-link-not-appearing?replies=3#post-2794599

    Hello all,

    I was having a similar issue with my theme on my website. I was looking around for some answers and found a fix that worked after combining some things.

    If your theme doesn't have the featured image when adding a slide OR you have the featured image area but no way to insert the image once you try adding the image via uploading (and such). You probably need to do one of two things:

    In your themes functions editor (functions.php) you need to search for:
    add_theme_support('post-thumbnails');

    If you have this function in your theme already, simply add the follwing code: array('post','slides','page')

    and this is what you should end up with:
    add_theme_support('post-thumbnails', array('post','slides','page'));

    If you search and find nothing, simply add the line of code directly about this sentence.

    I did this and I was finally able to add featured images to the plug-in.

    Good luck and I hope this works for everyone.

    would be nice if the plugin worked on its own. I'd really rather not have to change theme files because once the theme is updated, those changes are gone.

    Sometimes themes are poorly designed or spot is missed during implementation. Unless the designer/coder is working with a check-list of thousands of points, it's never gonna be 100%.

    Then again, maybe the theme creator didn't intend for the user to add a featured image to sliders.
