Support » Plugins » DDSlider not working properly for WP 3.2

  • Hi,

    The DD Slider plugin is not working properly for 3.2 – instead of fading, it is using a random transition every time!

    Any ideas? The plugin came with a theme designed by someone I hired and they charge stupid amounts of money so don’t really want to go back to him for help. I can’t contact the plugin developer because I didn’t buy the plugin directly from them.

    Please help!

  • If you haven’t already worked this out..

    In your dashboard, go to ‘ddslider’ tab – should near the bottom of all your menu’s, then click ‘general options’ find the slider you want and change the default to the transition you want.

    Hope that helps.

    I am having some crazy shift issue with this slider. it seems to be shifting the image to the right and I am seeing nearly 20px of the back ground. I have set the row, column and bar sizes to fit my width and height.
    w=640 h=340
    bars=20 rows=10 column=5
    can you please tell me what I am doing wrong.


    This is a separate issue and should really be in a new message.

    Your issue is CSS related and can resolved by changeing some of your theme code.

    The Identifier in question is on line 1017 in styles.css

    #page-content ul li, .post-content ul li {
        background: url("images/marker.png") no-repeat scroll left 5px transparent;
        list-style-type: none;
        padding-left: 20px;

    You need to either remove this 20px – this will most likely ruin you main theme OR write something like…

    #page-content #DDSliderCont ul li {
       padding-left: 20px;

    and chuck it in your styles.css file.

    Hope this helps,

    My apologies on posting in the wrong place I didn’t think this was a css issue it really appeared as a dd slider issue to me. But I am very new to all this.

    I have followed your suggestions but didn’t have any luck. Just as before the images appear in slider as they should covering the full width of the screen then they shift within the slider to the right by about 20px. The other issue seems to be that I can not break the space between the end of the slider and the begining of the next content. I have /*—
    —*/ at the end before my text just as I have in all other content yet no break is made. Again all issues appear to be surrounding the slider.

    If you like i would be more then happy to send a copy of my theme css to you so that you can see how I followed your instructions. Thank you so very much for your bullet fast return.

    in the above I was looking to display the br code I had placed in for the breaks with the greater then less then brackets. like I said I am new. but love learning. your info has at least lead me to use note pad++ over note pad which seems way cooler so far.

    Hi Corey,

    Balls! – I made a mistake, sorry… I can see you implimented what I told, unfortunately it should be..

    #page-content #DDSliderCont ul li {
        padding-left: 0;

    Sorry bud, I was responding via my phone while being bored in a meeting.

    Regarding your second issue, again it’s down to CSS. The div generated by ddslider is floated left (#DDSliderCont) to make parts of the slider work properly, your content is not floated or wrapped as wordpress wont apply those kind of elements to your content by default.

    You would be much better off creating a template page for this gallery page and then placing the slider in the template used for this page using the php tags, something like…

    <?php if(function_exists('displayDDSlider')) {
    		print displayDDSlider(array('name'=> 'MY_GALLERY_NAME'));
    } ?>

    You can then place the slider outside the content div and the two shouldn’t effect each other as much.

    Hope that helps!

    Bored in a meeting? Wow man that is impressive. like a scene out of the social network or something. Thanks so much man. works great now. wished I was the multitasker like you. I still have a great many beautiful women and other people to shoot. Can’t wait to come back to the site and finish it off now that you have helped me through this issue.

    I am hoping your code for the pages will work well with the post as well. I will need to give it a try. but again thank you so much!

    No Probs.

    Good luck,
