Support » Plugin: Cimy Header Image Rotator » [Plugin: Cimy Header Image Rotator] Can't get the plugin to work

  • Resolved sofia_M


    After having created a child theme (to twentyeleven) folder and added the required code in the header.php and style.css file, I can’t get the cimy image header rotator to work.

    I have also tried to change the background colour in the navigation by adding code in the child style.css which is not working either.

    Could someone please help me? If so, do I need to send the files/code or can it be viewed anyway?

    The site is

    Many thanks in advance.

    Looks like you resolved already.

    Hi Marco, Yes, thanks for checking 🙂

    Hi Sofia (and Marco),

    I have previously been using a header image slider in twenty eleven, which is unable to add hyperlinks to images – and now my client requires them, so I have come across this excellent plug in.

    I have installed the plugin, adding the desired images and information however it doesn’t seem to be working. I can see that Sofia got the plugin working exactly how I require it to (but with different hyperlinks on each image), but struggled in the first instance. The complete code from the plugin is below:

    <div id="cimy_div_id_0">Loading images...</div>
    <div class="cimy_div_id_0_caption"></div>
    <style type="text/css">
    	#cimy_div_id_0 {
    		float: left;
    		margin: 1em auto;
    		border: 0px solid #000000;
    		width: 1000px;
    		height: 288px;
    	div.cimy_div_id_0_caption {
    		position: absolute;
    		margin-top: 175px;
    		margin-left: -75px;
    		width: 150px;
    		text-align: center;
    		left: 50%;
    		padding: 5px 10px;
    		background: black;
    		color: white;
    		font-family: sans-serif;
    		border-radius: 10px;
    		display: none;
    		z-index: 2;
    	<div id="cimy_div_id_0_nojs">
    		<img id="cimy_img_id" src="http://mywebsite/wp-content/Cimy_Header_Images/0/chessboard.jpg" alt="" />

    I tried copying all of the code into the header.php, copying just the style information into my css child theme etc and nothing. Looking at the css on I can see the cimy_div_id_0 style is there, so I think I just need some advice on what code/where to copy the php information into my header.php file.

    Are you able to point me in the right direction please? I look forward to hearing from someone very soon. Thanks in advance.
