    Today marks the release of Easing Slider v3.0.0! It’s been a long time in development, so we thank you for your patience.

    Internally, Easing Slider v3.0.0 has been completely rebuilt. It is now more solid than ever, and structurally allows for some great future enhancements and support for upcoming WordPress versions.

    Of course, with a major release comes teething problems, which we fully expect. Upgrading from v2.2 or greater to v3.0.0 should go smoothly, but if you run into any trouble please don’t hesitate to reply to this topic stating your issue.

    Otherwise, expect to see lots of upcoming addons, future enhancements and more now and in the near future!

    Hi @ciro, thanks for the clarification. Could you contact me using the support form here? We can get this resolved through email as some further investigation is required.

    Done Matthew



    Now I switched to PHP 5.3 and was able to install the plugin. The slides will be shown in the backend, but the frontend is still not working.

    Hi @strengesmaedchen, thanks for the information. Can you link me to the page with your slider on it?

    Also, it would be great if you could enable WordPress debugging mode. This will hopefully give us some errors messages that allow me to pinpoint the issue. To enable debug mode, add the code below to the bottom of your wp-config.php file.

    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
    define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true );

    Same types of issues here:

    Accepted update – site would not load.
    Deactivated plug-in – site loaded no slider.
    Activated plug-in – site loaded no slider.
    Updated php call in my child header.php with new function name syntax (was: easing_slider now: easingslider) – site loaded no slider.

    php > 5.3 , etc.

    We pulled the old 2.x easing slider from a recent restore and we’re back.


    Yeah, I get something similar to what John got: I update the plugin, get an error in the log:

    Cannot use object of type stdClass as array in /Library/WebServer/wp-content/plugins/easing-slider/src/Foundation/Options/OptionArray.php on line 25

    Then, if I log into the WP admin, look around at the Easing Slider editor, just to confirm it’s there, when I go back to the home page, no slider loads.

    Like John, restoring the old version of Easing Slider Lite works fine…

    PHP Version 5.4.45
    WP version 4.5.2.




    Getting an error in 3.0.1 and 3.0.0

    Warning: is_readable(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/var/www/vhosts/ is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/vhosts/ in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 556

    Also, in 3.0.0 we were receiving another error which caused pages to not load.

    in /wp-content/plugins/easing-slider/src/Foundation/Options/OptionArray.php line 25

    return isset($this->value[$offset]);

    changing this line to this fixed the issue:

    return isset($this->value->offset);

    Updated the plugin error: Cannot use object of type stdClass as array in /wp-content/plugins/easing-slider/src/Foundation/Options/OptionArray.php on line 25

    Either the slider won’t load/display or the above error message appears

    Highly annoying

    PHP 5.4

    WP 4.5.2

    Sorry guys for the issues you have been having. Please bare with us as we try to get these resolved swiftly for you. None of this were encountered through testing so there is a bit of figuring out required. The more information you can provide the better.

    @joefinnerty_123, @cm258 and @jcarscad, what version of Easing Slider we you upgrading from? There are major differences between v2.1.x and v2.2.x, so let me know specifically 🙂

    I’m upgrading from

    Version 3.0.0

    actually because I have used this plugin in several sites, I now only have an issue with one site.

    all versions of everything are current

    I corrected the error message and then was able to change the shortcodes so all but one site works. It shows in the html source but not on the page

    Upgrading from (and returned to)

    Ok. Thanks for the information. Are you(s) seeing the image below after upgrading to v3.0+? This box indicates confirmation of a successful upgrade.

    Yes I did, until I reverted to

    Yes, I see the successful upgrade, no matter how I do it, even when I just nuke the whole easing-slider directory and replace it with the update.

    Perhaps this will help: there’s something strange going on with the ID for the slider. It seems that at one time, the slider had a different ID. Here’s the code I have in my template to display the slider:

    <?php if ( function_exists( "easingsliderlite" ) ) { easingsliderlite('21358'); } ?>

    However, when I look at the slider in the admin, the code it suggest is the following:

    <?php if ( function_exists( 'easingslider' ) ) { easingslider( 21384 ); } ?>

    Which also works with However, when I do the upgrade to 3.0.1, I get errors until I log into the admin, then they go away and the slider just doesn’t show up any more.
