  • Resolved jelllyfish


    I think your easy-to-use slider is perfect for the sidebar image carousel i’d like to implement. Trouble is, it’s not showing up. I’ve inserted the shortcode into a text widget on my primary sidebar (below the search function) and I know it’s there because the image alt tags show up if I place my cursor on the spot where it should be – but nothing else shows up. Where have I gone wrong? I checked the wp_footer() you noted in an earlier thread but that appears to be in place. You can view the site at

    Thanks for making this terrific plugin!

    That’s a bug that I fixed in the fully supported version but not in the lite version. Not really a bug, but more or less a lack of namespacing on my part. Since you are using the fade transition, it adds a class called “fade” that is being styled somewhere else in your stylesheet.

    Add this to your style.css file:

    .flex-container.fade { opacity: 1 !important; }
    .flex-container .flex-direction-nav li a:hover { background: url('images/slider-arrows-horizontal.png') no-repeat scroll 0 -18px !important; }

    That should fix it up for you. If it does and you dig the plugin, I’d love a 5 star rating. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You got it! Thanks SO much for the fix ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry to trouble you again, Thomas – but do you know if there is any way to get the images to select at random? As the same slider is appearing on all pages it would be fantastic if the order the images are pulled was not the same every time.

    Wait, never mind. I should really just be using a different plugin rather than troubling you on this one. But thank-you!

    The fully supported version of Soliloquy supports randomizing image order. If you love the plugin and want that feature PLUS a ton of other sweet features, you can check it out here and purchase yourself a copy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m having the same problem, I’ve inserted the code in my index file to use as a main page banner, i’ve copied the css in my file but still nothing shows up.

    my ‘soliloquy-item’ are both display none, and they don’t seem to change.

    It is likely a conflict of scripts with your theme. That means the initialization script is not firing. Check to ensure wp_footer exists in your footer.php file and that your theme is not loading jQuery from Google.

    My slider isn’t displaying either, and it seems the script isn’t firing. I have the wp_footer function in my theme footer, and I switched to loading jQuery locally. I’m not sure what else I might be missing, though. Any chance you can take a look?

    You can see the soliloquy container above the regular gallery here if you inspect the page:

    Thanks for any help

    Actually, it looks like it’s working on my production server, but just not locally. Wonder why that is.

    Having trouble, this is displaying

    object(WP_Error)#302 (2) { [“errors”]=> array(1) { [“plugins_api_failed”]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(218) “An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with or this serverโ€™s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums.” } } [“error_data”]=> array(1) { [“plugins_api_failed”]=> string(2) “N;” } }
    Something went wrong with the plugin API.

    what should i do?

    Using the Atahualpa theme 3.7.12. Trying to get the Soliloquy slider to work in a text widget. All that shows up is the shortcode when I view the site.

    I did insert the css you suggested above but nothing happened. Gallery is still not showing up.
