Support » Plugin: Captain Slider » adding or uplaoding slides

  • Resolved dancingdog


    Hi, I may be missing something very obvious, but how do I actually upload a slide?
    I go to Add new Slide, enter the caption and title. Under ‘Slide Image’ there is a link for ‘set featured image’ which brings the uploader screen; I choose an image, upload, then click ‘post thumbnail’ – and the uploader box closes bugt the ‘set featured image’ box stays up with a white screen. If I close it, there is no change to the ‘add new slide’ form.

    If I repeat, and instead choose from media gallery, then nothing happens when I click an image thumbnail to select it. Is this how it is meant to work?

    Hey! You were very close. After you’ve uploaded, you want to click ‘set as featured image’ down the bottom, just like you would set a featured image for a normal post or page. Let me know if you’re still confused and I’ll make a screenshot for you.

    I don’t have a ‘set as featured image’ after uploading. I have ‘insert into post’ and ‘save all changes’

    If I click ‘insert into post’ then the entire uplaoder area goes white, (still in the overlay) with the ‘set featured image’ header.

    Thanks fofr the reply

    Does yours look like this?

    If not, your theme isn’t supporting featured images.

    To fix, add the following to the bottom of your functions.php file:

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    If you don’t have this file or it’s empty, create it (functions.php) and add a:
    to the beginning of it before the code above.

    Let me know if that fixes it!

    That fixes it!
    Many thanks.
