I’ve installed the trial version of Social Slider on WordPress 2.9.2 and configured it with a few links. It does not display on my site, though. I’ve tried all of the display options and it didn’t work with any of them.
I tried the SocialSlider 2.2.1 update today. Still no luck getting it to work. One new piece of data: the new configuration page has a spot for displaying a preview of what the slider will look like, and nothing shows up for me in that spot.
Does SocialSlider depend on anything that’s not included in a standard WordPress 2.9.2 installation?
It may happen that Social Slider won’t show on your blog, even if it’s activated and configured. First of all, make sure that there’s no caching plugin (eg. WP-SuperCache) turned on – Social Slider may be working properly, but the cache is created before Social Slider is loaded. If Social Slider still doesn’t show up on page, try placing the function that starts Social Slider manually in the template file – in the header or sidebar, the position of the function doesn’t matter, it will be displayed in the same way.
Below you can find the code to put in the template file if you would like to run Social Slider manually:
