Support » Plugin: Link View » Difficulty in setting up a slider in the Linkview widget

  • I’ve been attempting to create a slider of links by means of the Linkview widget, but can’t seem to get the active list item to appear, though the slider is certainly there (in the source code of the page). Probably I’m simply overlooking something — but I’d appreciate any help you can give.

    The page is here: http://www.musicuratumlargeprint.org, and the slider ought to be appearing towards the top; the widget area within which it is placed is the first division under the #main.site-main area.

    In the rush I found 2 issues with your slider:

    1. Text color of links is black in your style css. This is a bad color for black background 🙂
    2. There is a css error for the width and height of the li tags. I have to check if this is a problem within the plugin. Can you please give me your exact attribute string of the widget? This would help a lot for testing.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Of course I know about the black background — every combination of CSS classes I tried was marked with “color: white” and (for good measure) “color: white !important” — but none worked.

    The code I’ve put into the widget window is as follows:

    view_type=”slider” slider_width=”100%” slider_height=”60px” cat_filter=”Of Further Note” show_cat_name=”0″ link_orderby=”rand” list_symbol=”none” class_suffix=”front-page-of-further-note-slider”

    And in the CSS window you provide I have this:

    .lv-category-front-page-of-further-note-slider,
    .lv-category-front-page-of-further-note-slider div#lv-id-1.lv-slider {
    height: 60px !important;
    margin: 0;
    }

    li.lv-list-item-front-page-of-further-note-slider {
    color: white;
    }

    With some trial and error, I’ve managed to get the slider working (now I have set up three of them). Yet they seem to be disabled whenever, after activated another browser window (or application window), I return to my website: at this point they are not visible at all, and in order to see them again, the window has to be reloaded.

    Have you encountered this sort of problem as well?
