[resolved] [Plugin: SlideDeck 2 Lite Content Slider] SlideDeck 2 Lite to be responsive? (6 posts)

    Hi guys

    Thank you for offering this plugin for free.
    i've tried several slider plugins on before switching over to SlideDeck 2 Lite. The lens feature (and ease of setting up) is unmatched at the moment among the free sliders.

    The image scaling feature is a nice touch in version 2.12, preventing undesired cropping of product images. i like the newly added Reporter lens recently very much too.

    My feedback:
    i'm using a customed Twenty Eleven theme which is a responsive theme. To make SlideDeck 2 frame fits as the site is being viewed on narrower screen, i have to add the following CSS. Wonder if future release of SlideDeck 2 Lite would have responsive-related settings?

    // For all free lens
    .slidedeck-frame dl {
      max-width: 100%;
    // For Tool Kit lens
    #content .lens-tool-kit .slidedeck dd {
      background-size: 100% auto;
      background-repeat: no-repeat;

    Hey Clojel,

    We just released a responsive version of SlideDeck 2 for both the Lite and paid versions. Make sure to get the latest version. Here's an announcement post with more details:

    Thanks, barefootceo, you guys are awesome!

    After upgraded SlideDeck 2 Lite to 2.1.20120827, i followed the instructions given, and the slider became responsive to browser window size. Plus it works on Chrome, Firefox, even IE9.

    One feedback:
    Shortcode support in excerpt seem to fail when ress=1.
    It happens that i have 'Add to cart' shortcode button in excerpt;
    thus i have yet to enable the new feature on production page *sigh*

    Thanks Clojel.

    I will let the dev team know about the shortcode support in excerpt.

    Hey Clojel,

    We actually don't process shortcodes with the WordPress content type as those are really just meant to be a simple preview of the post being featured in the SlideDeck. The functionality you may be interested in using is our Custom Content SlideDecks available with the Professional version of SlideDeck. With Custom Content SlideDecks you have full control over the content displayed in the SlideDeck including things like slide order, text formatting, shortcode processing, mixed media content, etc.

    I would check out the demo at http://demo.slidedeck.com/wp-login.php to see if this will meet your needs.
