  • Resolved mota.alex



    I’ve installed and activated the oik base plugin and the oik nivo slider plugin. I place the shortcode [nivo] for the slider on a page, but when I go to that page it only shows the navigation, and not the images. If I change to another page, and then go back, the slide appears OK, with navigation and images…

    I’m using Business Lite theme and wordpress 3.4.2 with oik 1.16 and oik nivo slider 1.6…

    Thank you.

    Hi, I’ve only just seen this. I’ll try to reproduce it. Do you still have the problem. Can you give me a link?

    I’ve been able to produce something similar if I put 3 sliders into one page. But I don’t get the problem with the twenty eleven theme.

    One thing I did notice was:

    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 400 (Bad Request)
    but that appears to be a red herring

    One reason I was getting the problem is simply a styling problem.

    My solution for this was to code the following in the nivo-slider.css file

    #slider-1 a, #slider-2 a, #slider-3 a, #slider-4 a, #slider-5 a { display: block; }

    I only had 3 nivo sliders in the post but the last one actually displayed was slider-6, indicating the nivo code was called 6 times rather than 3.

    It appears that the theme is processing everything twice,or even thrice. When I trace the request with twenty eleven I only find 99 instances of nivo in the output. With Business Lite it’s 237.
    With twenty eleven the_loop is called twice, with Business Lite (BL) it’s 3 times. For the_post the figures are 2 and 9.
    It will be interesting finding out what BL is doing!

    OK, I analyzed the Business Lite problem and reported my findings on their forum

    I somehow doubt that the problem I found is remotely similar to the problem originally reported.

    A minor update before I close this.
    The Cyberchimp team replied that they were reworking the Business Lite theme.

    Someone else reported similar problems on the oik-plugins website. I tracked this down to other pieces of jQuery code that were failing, preventing the nivo slider jQuery from completing its work.

    I haven’t heard anything else, so closing as resolved.
