[Resolved] Can't insert the plugin into my main page

    Hi HIDRIA,
    sorry fo the delay.

    Is your index page, a static page? or a blog page?

    The plugin works through a shortcode, that takes the list of posts as a parameter, and it uses jquery.

    The shortcode has to be inserted inside a page or post, or even a widget.

    If you switch to the twenty-twelve theme does it work?

    Can you add the shortcode that you use here,

    and / or a link to the site where this is used?

    Hi Nikos, thanks for the response. I have resolved the issue but I have a new question for you:) Is it possible to call a specific category posts with shortcode?

    Hi jawad3s,

    right now this is not supported in the plugin

    It is possible it will be added in an upcoming update,

    however by using a little php, you can get the post ids of a certain category and use them in the shortcode

    In this way, you make a custom shortcode which uses the elastic slide shortcode internally

    Hi jawad2s,
    a new update of the plugin is here:

    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/elastic-slide.latest-stable.zip

    which allows to use categories or post tags to get the slider posts:

    eg

    [elastic_slide cats=”27,17″]

    uses categories with ids 27 and 17

    Great Nikos, you are a guiness it works nice. Thank You so much.
