[resolved] WP-Cycle Not Working (13 posts)

    WP-Cycle was working fine until I upgraded to the latest version today, :(. Is it something on my end or is there a bug with the new version? The slideshow appears but does not rotate... hmm. Anyone else with this problem? Here's the website-

    Any thoughts would be massively appreciated! I believe I installed jquery properly by inserting:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script> into my header.php to use the latest version of jquery

    Same here, working fine until the update. Now it's one static picture. I'm sure Nathan will fix it!

    Me too. The latest update appears to have broken the rotator somehow. I've reverted to the previous version until the problem is resolved.

    I'm using the old version for now too but Nathan knows about the problem.

    Anybody know if there's any fix for this yet? I can't get the new version to work either.

    I want to use the new version, as I prefer that it puts the settings under the Media section and not under Plugins. This means my client can upload their own images for the slideshow without having to have administrator rights.

    OK, I think I just found the problem - my theme was missing the hook that the plugin uses to load the jquery file.

    If you look at the footer.php file in the TwentyTen theme, you will see this code:
    <?php
    /* Always have wp_footer() just before the closing </body>
    * tag of your theme, or you will break many plugins, which
    * generally use this hook to reference JavaScript files.
    */

    wp_footer();
    ?>

    If you don't have that before your closing </body> tag, the plugin doesn't have the hook it needs to load the jquery file.

    That's gret Meginoz - thanks. Thats why I love WordPress so much... if I'm having a problem, somebody else has probably already figured out the solution!

    It's amazing to see that even though I didn't have <?php wp_footer(); ?> in my footer, that it worked for an entire year. It wasn't until the upgrade to 3.0 that it stopped working. But thanks for the solution. Works like a charm now. :)

    A lot of this information was much appreciated but didn't solve my issue - the issue was so simple and stupid! I had a div named "Slideshow" when that's already embedded with the plugin. DO NOT name any div you are using in your theme, "Slideshow" instead use banner, slide, photos, whatever, just not the same div.

    Now I'm trying to put the slideshow centered on a background image... and I'm having trouble - any thoughts? Whenever I manage to get the slideshow centered by adding a left margin it makes the background image protrude farther.

    Background image is 1000px wide
    slideshow is 960px
    I want the slideshow centered on the background image and they are the exact same height.

    any thoughts?

    In the spirit of the continuation of shared progress I found that the quickest way to do what I set out to do was to simply put the WP_CYCLE in a table. Did just the trick:

    like so:

    <div id="banner">
    <table width="1000px" table height="100%" cellpadding="20">
    <tr><td><?php wp_cycle(); ?> </td></tr>
    </table>
    </div>

    Hope this helps!

    May be your theme have not this codes
    <?php wp_head(); ?> // before </head>
    <?php wp_footer(); ?> // before </body>
