[Resolved] No Title or Description on Slider

  • I am using Easy Rotator, I select the option “Posts from specific category or categories” and I cannot see any title or description on my wordpress page, only the image. I can however, see the description when I “preview” the slide from within the editor itself. I have checked “Use Each Post’s Excerpt Field as the Slide’s Description” and ensured that I actually have an excerpt for each post, however does not appear. It’s the same across multiple browsers.

    Can you please advise?

    Hi Smeaton,

    Thanks for using EasyRotator for WordPress. Please double-check that you’ve selected a layout template in the Layout/Presentation section that includes a title/description display area. If you continue to experience trouble, please share the URL of your page.

    Sincerely,
    Drew O’Neill

    Hi, Thanks for the reply,

    Yes the layout template should be displaying a title and a description.
    This is being tested on a dummy page which can be seen at: http://54.221.205.225/

    Could you please advise how to display title and description? The plugin is perfect otherwise! If I can figure this problem out I definitely want to invest in the Pro features.

    Kind Regards,

    Hi,

    The problem seems to relate to your theme automatically removing empty <p> tags before they can be filled. To solve this, edit the layout source code (see: http://www.dwuser.com/support/easyrotator/kb/customize-layout/ ) and note these two lines:

    <p class="erimgMain_title" style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 3px 0; font-weight: bold;"></p>
    <p class="erimgMain_desc" style="padding: 0 0 10px 0; margin: 0;"></p>

    Add &nbsp; within each tag like this:

    <p class="erimgMain_title" style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 3px 0; font-weight: bold;">&nbsp;</p>
    <p class="erimgMain_desc" style="padding: 0 0 10px 0; margin: 0;">&nbsp;</p>

    Sincerely,
    Drew O’Neill

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    Unfortunately, it still does not work after adding ‘ ‘ the two lines like below:

    <p class="erimgMain_title" style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 3px 0; font-weight: bold;">&nbsp;</p>
    <p class="erimgMain_desc" style="padding: 0 0 10px 0; margin: 0;">&nbsp;</p>

    Please could you advise? When I view the html source for the slider, I can see that the title and description are being passed, but it just does not show on the webpage…

    Hi,

    I just checked the outputted code and it appears to currently be:

    <p class="erimgMain_title" style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 3px 0; font-weight: bold;"&nbsp; !important</p>
    <p class="erimgMain_desc" style="padding: 0 0 10px 0; margin: 0;"&nbsp; !important</p>

    Note that this is corrupted HTML. Is this what you see in the Layout Source dialog, or is there a script on your site that’s modifying the outputted HTML?

    Sincerely,
    Drew O’Neill

    Hi Drew,
    No it’s not a script, I added the !important simply as a test, after the ‘ ‘ fix did not work – this is now removed.

    As you’ll be able to see, it now reads:

    <p class="erimgMain_title" style="padding: 0; margin: 0 0 3px 0; font-weight: bold;">&nbsp;</p>
    <p class="erimgMain_desc" style="padding: 0 0 10px 0; margin: 0;">&nbsp;</p>

    Any more ideas?

    Regards,

    Here’s what I’m still seeing on the live code: http://i.imgur.com/ITtwRyK.jpg

    Before any edits where made, there was nothing between the opening tag and the closing tag. If adding &nbsp; isn’t working, add some placeholder text (e.g. a period or some other character).

    Sincerely,
    Drew O’Neill
