EasyRotator for WordPress - Slider Plugin
[resolved] Stray bullet point? (7 posts)

    Hi,
    I have just installed EasyRotator. I created a new widget area on my home page and placed a rotator there, which works fine, except that there is a stray bullet point showing up above the rotator. I can't work out where this is being generated from. It disappears if I remove the widget.

    The page is here: http://www.litro.co.uk

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Emily

    Hi Emily,

    It appears that your theme is generating that <li> code for some reason: http://i.imgur.com/WrqdlR3.jpg . The best solution is probably editing your homepage template to instead use the easyrotator_display_rotator function. Basically, you should replace the <div class="slider-widget"> wrapper with code like this:


    <?php
    easyrotator_display_rotator('erc_xx_xxxxxx');
    ?>

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Sincerely,
    Drew O'Neill

    Thanks Drew - is it possible to find the ID of a rotator I've already created? (I'm guessing that's what replaces x in the code?)

    Hi Emily,

    Sorry - I intended to include this article, which explains that you should insert the rotator into an empty post to obtain its ID: http://www.dwuser.com/support/easyrotator/kb/template-function/

    Thanks - I've just tried doing this, but when I click the button to Insert EasyRotator into the page, I get an error message saying "Error - unable to process action."

    Hi,

    This error is usually caused by a conflict with some other plugin. If you'd like to open a support ticket, we'd be happy to take a look.

    In the meantime, you can obtain the rotator ID by launching the EasyRotator program directly from the Applications/Programs menu on your computer. A list of all rotators will be shown in the server explorer view; choose the drop-down arrow on the right edge of the rotator name, and choose the "Get WordPress Embed Code..." option. This will give you the ID value.

    Sincerely,
    Drew O'Neill

    That's worked, thanks for your help. I'll raise a support ticket as suggested.
