    Thanks for your report. I’ve sent it to our developer team. They’ll fix this problem in the next version.
    Sorry for inconvenience.

    WOW thanks for the fast response and will look forward to the update.

    Excellent support,

    Jax, This is what I did to fix it myself. It is a simple A tag href change.

    Go to pages engine1/wowslider.js and engine1/wowslider.mod.js
    searched for “ws_playpause” you will find 3 separate A tags linking to href=”#”.
    Change all three to href=”javascript:void(0);”

    href=”#” is a bookmark that takes you to the top of the page. Changing it to javascript:void(0) will stop it from happening.

    Thanks for the tip however in my WordPress install there are no wowslider.js , there is a wowslider.mod.js but making the change as you suggest made no difference… (there is a script.js with the relevant code in it, changing that did not make a change either)

    What fixed it for me was /wp-content/uploads/wow-slider-plugin/1/slider.html


    <span class="wsl"><a href="">Website Sliders</a> by v4.5</span>
    <a href="#" class="ws_frame"></a>


    <span class="wsl"><a href="">Website Sliders</a> by v4.5</span>
    <a href="javascript:void(0);" class="ws_frame"></a>

    Thanks for the tip 🙂


    Seems the word press version of WOWslider is different then the one I installed yesterday on my home machine. Seems you found the culprit A tag. Thank you for clarifying it on this site for other people to use.
