Support » Plugin: MetaSlider » Image order is messed up

    There seems to be a very serious trouble with images order in the slides;
    I have a very specific order in which I want my slider images to show, and every time I reorder them by drag&drop – which is very cool – changes get lost after saving the slider.

    WordPress 5.0.3 with gutenberg disabled
    very sad about this, it messed up quite a few hours of my work

    Hi @computershowtopro,

    Can you open the developer tools, then attempt to reorder the slides? If it’s not saving then you’ll see an error in the console.

    Hi @computershowtopro,

    I’m going to mark this as resolved as we didn’t hear back, but please feel free to comment or open a new issue if needed, thanks!

    It is not resolved, and this generally accepted mentality that I see on all wordpress plugin’s support page, that if you don’t hear back from the OP, it means it’s resolved, is very flawed.

    Take a hint, read the bug report, and fix it. I’m a programmer myself, so please understand I didn’t report it because I had nothing better to do. Your plugin doesn’t keep the order of the images, sometimes it may depend on other plugin’s or multilanguage capabilities, or other things.

    I reported the bug in the hope you will improve it.

    In the meantime, I’ve spent about 4 hours with 3 slides, to reorder them, only to realise that I had to turn of opcache, then set wp_cache to false in wp-config, then delete entire browser cache, cookies, all, then do a sweep with clearing all transients in wordpress, until I got it finally ordered the way I wanted. Between these aforementioned operations, I’ve reordered slides again and again only to see them messed up after saving, again and again.

    So please take a hint and either rewrite the algorithms, or find another way for ordering the slide images, hopefully one that makes’em stick to where users put them.

    Otherwise… thank you for the plugin, it’s great, it did help me accomplish what I needed to accomplish, I’m just sayin’ it would have been nice to be able to do it in 1/10 of the time this way took me.

    PS: there are no errors in the console, that’s bogus and you know it
