Simple Story Slider

Description

After stories that scroll, let’s slide with Simple Story Slider, the little bro of Simple Long Form.

Get the power on the design of your story with choosing your fonts, colors, text-alignment… Each area of the main template is (almost) fully customizable.
No need to know anything about coding to get the design that suits your purpose.

The principle of Simple Story Slider is to be easy to use: just fill in the editing zones and follow the order of the sections.
There is no limit to build a slider story: add as many slides as needed.

The plugin activation creates a custom post type (CPT) : “Story Slider” with all of the functionalities of a simple post (RSS feed, category, search…)
Stories can also be listed in a dedicated widget.

FAQ

There is a problem for displaying section in the back-end…

Don’t panic : verify the screen options (button on the right at the top of the edit page) and make sure that the chek-box of each section is activated.

I have made an update of WP and my posts are not showing anymore…

Go to settings/permalinks and save the settings without making any change (if you don’t want to).

I want to preview my story slider but the page is not found…

That means that the “flush” function has failed on your installation. Go to “options / permalinks” and save your settings to fix it (you don’t have to change the structure of your permalinks).

I want to preview my story slider but it is not well displaying…

It might be due to the fact that you have add only one slide.
This issue will be solved with adding a new slide. Now, it is looking great!

Where can I find documentation ?

On my website, but in French only (for the moment): http://www.ohmybox.info/storyslider/simple-story-slider-mode-demploi/

What should I do if there is a bug?

Reviews

Truly Wonderful

This is not your average carousel. This plugin lets you split a post into multiple slides of shortform text displayed alongside an image or iframe. Great way to increase page views. Stories are easy to create. Works smoothly. The layout is responsive. Great addition to the WordPress family of plugins.
