Support » Plugin: WP Bootstrap Carousel » Doesn't work with Display posts shortcode

  • I tried with 3.7 and 4.0 WP version.
    The first post of the carousel is ok and after the others posts are not shown using Display posts shortcode attribute.

    I tested with WP 4.0, Twenty Fourteen, and the latest versions of the plugins, and it works just fine.

    Example code:

    [display-posts posts_per_page="10" include_excerpt="true" image_size="large" bootstrap="1"]

    Make sure the posts you’re querying actually have thumbnails attached to them.

    If you’re having trouble with the software, you could consider posting in the support forums first, instead of giving bad reviews. Just saying 😉

    In fact, before posting a review I checked the support messages and I saw I have the same problem as it is describe in the latest thread.
    The subject is metionned “closed” but it is wrong : you didn’t answer to Jon’s last question :
    “Thanks Peter,

    I added the bootstrap=”1″ parameter to my [display-posts] shortcode and I DO see the L- and R-side paging arrows. Additionally, I am seeing what I expect, code-wise, when I ‘inspect element’ of the page. My posts are there in the DOM. The problem is that they are not displaying on the page and the height of containing div’s seems to be 0px;

    [display-posts category=”carousel” bootstrap=”1″]

    Any ideas why?
    Thanks so much for whatever guidance you could provide.

    That topic was marked as resolved because it DOES work with the DPS plugin (see the title of the topic). The 0px is another issue which strictly speaking should be investigated and dealt with in another support topic.

    In your (and Jon’s) case, as it works fine with the wp defaults, some plugin or theme element must be interfering, I guess. I’m happy to help you sort it out. Are you using a theme that is freely available? Is your theme or one of your plugins maybe enqueueing bootstrap scripts?

    Thanks for help, appreciate!
    The theme is a pro one bought on envato : Royal Gold. I’ve downloaded and installed the last version.
    Here is an example of the pb :
    And my shortcode attributes : [display-posts posts_per_page=”10″ include_excerpt=”true” image_size=”medium” bootstrap=”1″ category=”offres” width=”300″]

    Looks like the carousel items are wrapped in p tags, to which the active class is applied. Did you put the shortcode in a text widget? If so, maybe take a look at the solution provided here: You could also use the do_shortcode template tag to embed the slider directly in your sidebar e.g.:

    echo do_shortcode( '[display-posts posts_per_page="10"]' );

    No, shortcode is directly written in content area, without any html tags, as you can see in this screenshot :

    OK. Still, I have strong suspicions the wpautop filter is messing things up. You might want to run a search on your theme files to see if the theme author has fiddled with wpautop. Maybe take a look at the solutions provided here: . It could be as simple as adding the following to your functions.php file (or a custom plugin):

    remove_filter( 'the_content', 'wpautop' );
    add_filter( 'the_content', 'wpautop', 999 );

    Thank you but I added these two lines to the end of my functions.php file and it still doesn’t work. Anyway the other shortcodes are working ?

    It’s kinda hard to diagnose without access to the source code of your theme and plugins. You could disable your plugins one by one to try and isolate the culprit. As for a quickfix, the following jQuery could do the trick:
