Support » Plugin: IvyCat AJAX Image Slider » Running Multiple Instances on one page

  • Resolved deutschwulf


    Hey there,

    First off; great plugin guys. I was looking for something stripped down and more geared towards developers and this is just the ticket.

    I have run into a bit of an issue unfortunately. I want to run two seperate sliders on my homepage. I’ve set up each on with the group that I want it to display.

    When they start running it all looks good; they pull up like they should. However, when the slider switches to the next slide, my second slider assumes the images in the first slider (second slider is a text-only slider, so the problem is pretty apparent). When I remove the first slider from the page and just run the second one, the second one runs completely fine; no problems at all. So I know that the two sliders work fine independently, but unfortunately they don’t work very well together.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi deutshwulf,

    Thanks for the good words.

    Yeah, the JavaScript currently uses an ID to switch the elements of the slider. I think it could be managed with a class, or an ID generated based on the group indicated in the shortcode, but it’d take a bit of modification. I’m not sure I could get to it this weekend, but if I do, I’ll let you know.

    It looks like this feature will have to be put on the roadmap for now, as it’ll take a bit more work than I thought I’ll need to discuss it with the team here and figure out the best way to implement it.

    In the meantime if you really need two sliders, you could consider combining two plugins, or forking ours with a few code tweaks and running both versions at once.
