[resolved] Slideshow Widget view - displays off the page (7 posts)

    Hi,

    I can't seem to adjust my slideshow widget to display in the proper widget position - this only seems to be happening in Firefox.
    http://selfdesigninstitute.org/learner-video-gallery/

    I have 4 slides in the slideshow "Meet the Faculty."

    Firebug is telling me that this is the area that is not adjusting well for my theme:
    <div class="slideshow" style="width: 1240px; float: none; position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px;">
    <div class="slideshow" style="width: 1240px; float: none; position: absolute; top: 0px; left: -285px;">
    <div class="slideshow" style="width: 1240px; float: none; position: absolute; top: 0px; left: -570px;">
    <div class="slideshow" style="width: 1240px; float: none; position: absolute; top: 0px; left: -855px;">

    Also is there any way, or plans for the future to allow descriptions on video slides? I had to go off and use a different plugin for videos just to get that feature.

    With thanks,

    elan

    Hi Elan,

    The slideshow is built up with '<div>' elements. You're placing the slideshow inside a list, which is causing problems because a '<div>' element can never be placed in anything but another '<div>' element.

    The problem should be fixed after adjusting the sidebar to be made up of '<div>' elements.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Hi Stefan,

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I haven't made any customizations to the sidebar that would result in the slideshow (and all other sidebar widgets) being nested in a list. I just grabbed the built-in slideshow widget and dropped it in.

    I do use a "Display Widget" plugin that allows me to select and customize which pages a widget will appear on. I wonder if that is where the list format is being introduced.

    I guess I'll have to test with another theme.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Evan,

    The 'Display Widget' shouldn't have anything to do with it, it's not altering any HTML.

    It's a nice theme you have there, so if you know a little about working with HMTL and CSS you could customize your theme's 'sidebar.php' file to replace the '<ul>' and '<li>' tags with '<div>' elements.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Hi Stefan,

    Thanks I was just about to give up. I may need to call in a little help but I sure would like to use your plugin.

    I appreciate you putting the extra effort into helping me especially since the issue is not actually with your plugin.

    Cheers!

    Hello Stefan

    Would you mind looking at our site for some reason all of our slideshows stopped displaying last evening.

    http://cruiseviews.ca/5-must-sees-in-st-kitts/

    http://cruiseviews.ca/survivor-series-seven-days-on-allure-of-the-seas/

    The second link is the last post I was working before it broke.

    Many Thanks

    Hi,

    There are a couple of JavaScript errors on your page that prevent the slideshow from starting.

    The errors seem to be mainly thrown by the 'superfish' script and the 'fancybox' script. If these are plugins, you could probably simply disable them to get the slideshow to work again.

    Best regards,
    Stefan
