Smart Slider 2

The perfect all-in-one responsive slider solution for WordPress.

Check our official documentation for more information

1. How do I add the slider to my site?

You can add your slider via the widget control panel or by shortcode.

2. What should I do when the slides/images appear under each other?

Usually it means that Smart Slider can't load the required stylesheets into your site. Try to set "CSS and Javascript load mode" mode into 'Alternative #1' and see if it works for you. See this option in the documentation

If it doesn't work, feel free to contact us!

3. What should I do when I see blank area where the slider should show or the slider doesn't work?

It means that there is a JavaScript error on your site which blocks other scripts(for example Smart Slider's scripts). You can open up the browser debugger window with F12 button and check the console if it shows error or not. If you solve these errors Smart Slider should work fine.

Usual problem is that you have the latest WordPress version, but your theme loads very old jQuery version (1.7 or older) and the WordPress admin bar throws a JavaScript error. In this case, you have to remove the old jQuery from your theme's functions.php.

If you are unable to solve these problems, feel free to contact us!
