WOW Slider
[resolved] WowSlider 2.6 not working with WordPress 3.5 (42 posts)

    i sent this in email form to support, but am posting here as well in case that inbox is busy with other customers.

    I have successfully used the WowSlider for my company’s WordPress page for the past month or so, and the plugin now seems broken, as I get this message when clicking on the plug-in page:

    “Warning: Missing argument 1 for WOWSlider_List_Table::bulk_actions(), called in /home/transigm/public_html/new-site/transigmapartners/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-list-table.php on line 768 and defined in /home/transigm/public_html/new-site/transigmapartners/wp-content/plugins/wowslider/list-table.php on line 119”

    Can you please tell me what this means?

    Whenever I try to load a slider I now get the message: “Wrong Slider.”

    I updated both WordPress and WowSlider today, so an now operating on WordPress 3.5 and WowSlider 2.6. Here is my website, with the slider currently gone:

    http://www.transigmapartners.com/new-site/transigmapartners/

    I tried the upload via folder option and that gives me the same exact error message. I tried re-installing and this did not work.

    Thank you,

    -Drew

    I get the EXACT same error message since upgrading to WP 3.5
    Wowslider worked fine until then and I did nothing but upgrade WP and now the sliders are static on my 2 pages I have them on and cannot go next-prev either manually.

    I was told by support (which did email back fast) to try to upload to server and put the html code on my pages. That is Way easier on a Html website but hard if have many pages and only want a slider on a couple in php since their is no page to edit and is stored in database.

    I think they will update soon. Looking to buy to us on my business website but got to wait to see if it is fixed.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, this problem really appeared after WordPress update. Our developer team will try to fix it as soon as possible.
    Sorry for inconvenience.

    I just upgraded my wordpress also to 3.5 and I just installed WOW Slider as well but when I insert the short code into a page viewing it at the front end only shows the shortcode I inserted earlier and not the slider. Please help. The theme I'm using is Evolve 1.9 from Theme Giant

    i too am experiencing issue due to similar error meesages.

    also, when attempting a new slider upload, i receive the error "wrong slider"
    this happens with both types of upload, via the form, and via the import-from-folder method.

    I've updated the plug-in. Still no go with regard to successful upload of new slider.

    Where can we download the desktop app? On your site?

    I updated to 2.7 wowslider plugin and it Did get rid of the “Warning: Missing argument 1 for WOWSlider_List_Table::bulk_actions(), called in /home/transigm/public_html/new-site/transigmapartners/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-list-table.php on line 768 and defined in /home/transigm/public_html/new-site/transigmapartners/wp-content/plugins/wowslider/list-table.php on line 119”

    However, it still is "Static" and will not change from first pic even if you click on the arrows.
    *In Firebug, I get "TypeError: e is undefined ....jquery 1.8.3 Line 2"

    Copied error below in ().

    TypeError: e is undefined
    (http://dazzlingphotobooth.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.8.3
    Line 2)

    Webpage I am building and testing wowslider (2 of them on this page at bottom):

    Thanks! I really like the effects of the wowslider before the WP 3.5 Update and looking for to it again and buying.

    i've uploaded the 3.5 update for 20-10 theme for wordpress (using IE explorer) and the update to fix the post 3.5 problems. I'm getting "wrong slider" in pink when I try to upload in the way I have many times before.

    Have tried many alternatives but am failing to get anything but "wrong slider." Any suggestions. I'm not a coder.

    cheers

    I had Wowslider trial and bought the full version which I installed yesterday. Then I updated my WordPress yesterday afternoon. Now my slider is a static picture of the first picture.

    I also installed the plugin update yesterday.

    Will there be an update soon to get the slider working again? This is a new website that I want to announce to friends, etc. but don't want to until the slider is working correctly.

    Thanks,
    Janice

    I solved the problem, and perhaps the solution is at hand as well for others similarly affected.

    As advised, update the plug-in to its 2.7 iteration.

    Then be sure you have the 2.7.1 desktop version.

    Once I uploaded my desktop version, I was able to upload new/revised slides.

    I still had my link to download the full-install version.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers from the Southwest, of Ohio

    michael:

    You gave me a ray of hope. I uploaded the 2.7.1 version, erased the old version with control panel first, and was able to download the slider to wordpress with the usual code.

    I loaded it onto a post as I normally would and just got a blank spot. Tried to load on post in visual and html and it just left a blank spot on the preview.

    I'm baffled.

    cheers

    I can actually watch the plugin run on the slider page but the code won't tranlate to a post.

    I have no idea why it won't load there. I've removed WOW slider from both desktop and wordpress and reloaded them. Added the latest update and yet still when I load the code to the page -- i get nothing.

    I really like the slider but i've spent a lot of time on this. Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be. Am I making a mistake here with the process?

    cheers

    I uninstalled the desktop version... downloaded from the site... reinstalled it.

    I deleted off the Wow on my WordPress and redownloaded and activated.

    Started from scratch with a new slider and uploaded it. Then changed the style sheet for my header where I had it working before.

    Still doesn't work. Still just shows the first image only.

    I started from scratch on everything. I can watch the slider where it has been downloaded in wordpress.

    Just doesn't show up in the post ... at least in the preview mode. I don't want to publish it because the mistake will go to all the subscribers.

    Don't want that.

    cheers

    Just wondering if we are we going to get a fix for this plug-in? I have seen and installed several updates but it still doesn't work.

    I know. I like the plugin greatly. I hope they get it fixed. I can load it into the sliders file in wordpress, can actually watch it work, but it just shows a blank on my 20-10 them when I post it.

    I have a slider ready to go but I can't use it. Have loaded updates but still no go.

    I hope it works out.

    cheers

    If you see WOWSlider shortcode or empty space instead of slideshow:

    1) Make sure that you add a shortcode at "HTML" tab, not at "Visual" tab.
    2) Shortcode will work with pages and posts only. If you use widget or template you need WOWSlider PHP code.
    3) If problem will persist, possibly WOWSlider has a conflict with your theme or plugin. You can try to use default theme and temporary disable plugins.
    Also, you can insert WOWSlider manually.

    Zencowboy,

    I have just checked your page:
    http://dazzlingphotobooth.com/pricing/

    and found the reason of problem. It's "Rotate" effect. Unfortunately, this effect doesn't work in WordPress. Sorry for inconvenience. Our developers will fix this problem in the next version. Now you can use any other effect or add WOWSlider with "Rotate" effect manually:
    Instruction here
    Also, I found the you use 17 jquery on your page. It should be only 1 jquery per page. Also, some of these jquery were added by plugins that I couldn't find on your page... For example: "fluid-width-video-wrapper", "Easy element scrolling", "flexslider"... It's good idea to disable plugins that you don't use on your page. Additional scripts increase loading speed of your page and can conflict with plugins that you really use.

    Thank You! It does work again when I choose an effect other than rotate...that one is my favorite for my type of website.

    I disabled a few plugins I was not using. But it seems the Theme developer has the 3 you mentioned built into the pages even though on used on home page or portfolio page.
    I don't know how to disable them on the other pages where they are not used :-(

    Thanks again for your time and input and looking forward to the next update with 'rotate' in the slider (it did work on WP 3.4.2).

    PS. The Manually installing Wowslider on webpage can be done for a WP page??
    I know how on an html website using my Dreamweaver, but not figured it out using WP.

    Thanks!!

    It's possible to insert WOWSlider manually. "Rotate" effect will work in this case.

    1) Create your slideshow using WOWSlider.
    2) Publish it on a local drive in any test folder:

    - open Gallery->Properties->Publish or click 'Publish' button on the main menu panel;
    - select 'Publish to folder', click 'Browse' button and select any local folder;
    - click 'Publish' button

    3) Open index.html file from the saved folder in any text editor (Notepad for example) or you can:
    - open index.html page in any browser
    - right click on the page
    - select view source of the page.

    You'll find 'engine' and 'data' folders in this saved folder also.

    4) Copy code for HEAD and BODY sections of WOWSlider, go to HTML (text) tab in WordPress and paste WOWSlider sections in the place where you want to have a slider, for example:

    ...
    <!-- Start WOWSlider.com HEAD section -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="engine1/style.css" media="screen" />
    <style type="text/css">a#vlb{display:none}</style>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="engine1/jquery.js"></script>
    <!-- End WOWSlider.com HEAD section -->
    ...
    <!-- Start WOWSlider.com BODY section -->
    ...
    <!-- End WOWSlider.com BODY section -->
    ...

    5) Notice, you should copy 'data' folder with images and 'engine' folder with all files into the same folder with your own webpage.

    6) Preview your website in the browser.

    That's all.

    Thanks again. What you explained above is better than regular instruction for manually inserting (go to HTML (text) tab in WordPress and paste WOWSlider sections in the place where you want to have a slider, for example:).

    Only question ( I do hope so and you have been helpful ), is step # 5 above.
    Where in WP would I put those 2 folders? I have a theme, so in inside that folders root?

    Thanks again and sure others are enjoying your help!!

    If you plan to use default paths generated with WOWSlider, "data" and "engine" folders should be in the root folder, i.e. into the same folder with "wp-content", "wp-includes" folders.
    Actually, you can store "data" and "engine" folders into any other place you like and edit paths to WOWSlider files in HTML code. For example, if you'll place "data" and "engine" folders into "wp-content" folder, paths in HTML code should be:

    <!-- Start WOWSlider.com HEAD section -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="wp-content/engine1/style.css" media="screen" />
    <style type="text/css">a#vlb{display:none}</style>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="wp-content/engine1/jquery.js"></script>
    <!-- End WOWSlider.com HEAD section -->

    I'm having issues uploading my slides. The uploader that comes with the plugin isn't working. How can I upload these files manually?
