Support » Plugin: WordPress Slider Block Gutenslider » Inserting slide and edit/preview mode

  • Resolved antonyjosephsmith

    I’m using WP 5.6 and Plugin version 4.4.11. I’ve replicated on two different site with vanilla WP themes and no other plugins.

    Insert Empty Slide doesn’t work when initially inserting the block. You have to insert a dummy media item and then insert a blank slide.

    It refuses to stay in edit mode, clicking away to elsewhere in the editor switches straight back to preview which is really confusing causing the editor page to jump around, very frustrating.

    Side note but does the plugin really require a top level admin item? This should be under settings or appearance at best.

    Thanks

    Antony

    Hey @antonyjosephsmith,

    thank yoou for your annotations. We are constantly improving ux and ui and will implemnent your critique in the upcoming releases at the beginning of 2021. We know that the ux is not perfect but was the best choice when we created gutenslider. We are elaborating other options currently and hope that everything you mention will be implemented soon. Also agree about the top level admin item. Expect bigger changes.

    Would you prefer to click a button to go back from “edit mode” to “preview?

    I think it should stay in whatever mode a user selects until it’s changed by the user

    @antonyjosephsmith thanks again for your bug reports.

    We fixed the insert slide button in 4.4.12, however the “jumping” remains, until the next big ux update, when we implement new Gutenberg options to make the slides appear vertically, even when editing.
