[resolved] 2nd slider not picking up designated category (3 posts)

    Hello,

    We're using the Promotion Slider (and we love it!) and we'd like to use it on another page of our website. We've added this code to a test page: [promoslider category "Front Sports Page News" width="475px" height="222px" time_delay="10" numberposts="3"]
    and the slide will come up, but it doesn't pull in the posts for the category Front Sports Page News. It just picks up ALL promotions. Here's a link to our test page: http://www.hampshirereview.com/front-sports-page-news/
    Can you help us out?
    Thanks!

    @HR_Web,

    By default, if the category you pass in the shortcode doesn't exist, then the slider will pull in all promotions. The safest thing to do is to use the category slug rather than the category name. You can copy the slug from the page where you created the category. This is my best guess as to what you should probably use:

    [promoslider category="front-sports-page-news" width="475px" height="222px" time_delay="10" numberposts="3"]
