WP Slick Slider
[resolved] WP Slick Slider changing slide type does not work on return edits. (13 posts)

    Reproduction: (Safari)
    1) Create test slide with Lorem ipsum inside, enclosed in coloured div for demo. Do not assign type in Slide Information drop down. It is Left Half-image by default. Assign slide to slider. Save slide.
    2) Open the page with slider running. You see that you forgot to use Full Text type of slide. Oh my God! I gonna use the correct type!
    3) Return to slide edit. Assign Full Text type in Slide Information dropdown. Save slide.
    4) On return to Slider it appears that you still have your slider Half wide. Bumper... State was not saved.

    Its a bug.

    Current workaround is explicitly define width of the element in question by inline style, which overrides erratically behaving styling enforced by the plugin.

    Hmmm, I could not replicate this on my local machine, can you pass me some details of your installation, Server software ( apache, IIS? ) other plugins etc.

    also, can you inspect the HTML structure of the offending slide and let me know what you see?

    Well, its Apache 2, CentOS, PHP 5.3, nothing special. Other plugins that can mess around are EasyFancybox (need it), JW Player (messed, removed, using URL-embeds instead), JetPack (looks OK), Gravity Forms (looks OK). Other JS things used - top_up (kinda need it, looks OK), TypeKit (need it , looks OK), jQuery Vertical Accordion Menu (need it, looks OK)

    While inspection I have found that generated #wpss_slideshow_[%slider_name%] picks height from admin part of your plugin interface and strangely does not pick width, which drives me mad.

    Hmmm.

    Do you have an online version I can see?

    or could you copy the entire HTML structure into pastebin so I can inspect it.

    It sounds like a problem while the post is saving with the post meta. Have you tried activating wp_debug in your wp-config file?

    Let Me know.

    Both sliders have been set as full width, The content container is correct, Can you please reiterate what your problem is?

    The width is not explicitly used in the CSS, but is used to make calculations.

    Cheers

    The thing is, Ben, that each slider has different width set in its settings in plugin admin area. But they look rendered as 100% width of the parent element, which is not their supposed behaviour, correct me please if I am not right. If the Slider width is set to 300 in its settings, it has to be 300 px wide, right? Not 544.
