[resolved] content hiddened? (6 posts)

    I have added the carousel to my homepage and set it up to cycle through the 3 most recent articles in the News category.

    I'm sure this is something stupid, but when I look at the site I can't see anything in the SliderContent area, but if I look at the sourcecode the content is there??

    I assumed this was a positioning issue on my part, but I can't seem to get it to show up!

    Any ideas??

    It is working, but as there is no image in the carousel (there are just texts) and text is hidden in Clear Slider theme, you don't see anything.

    Open wp-carousel/themes/clear-slider/theme.php and look for:

    <span class="hide">

    Replace it with:

    <span>

    Do the same in theme-jcarousel.php.

    Then you'll see the text.

    Thanks for your help!
    I removed the class "hide" and only one of the articles showed up. I added a ['TITLE'], which is now showing up, but the ['DESC'] (which I assume is the excerpt/content) is still not displaying...
    It seems like there is still something set to hide?

    Any help on this would be appreciated.
    I have been trying to find where the content is set to hide, but I can't figure it out :(

    I don't know why, but I didn't get the notification of your previous reply.

    Just read the "Help" tab, you'll find:

    Posts's text for the carousel

    WP Carousel loads the text for the carousel in the following order:

    1. Value of custom field wp_carousel_carousel_text
    2. Posts's exceprt

    But as far as you have the ID of the item ($item['ID']) you can use WordPress functions to get more data of the item, like custom fields, category, tags, author, etc.

    Thank you!
    I ended up just switching to the skinless option since I couldn't get the clearskin to do what I wanted, or find the info you were talking about above.

    Thanks again for your responsiveness. Love the plugin!
