Support » Plugin: FA Lite - WP responsive slider plugin » Slide title from old post on new one, can’t change

    I copied some text from an old post into a new one, and now FA Lite’s slide title is coming from the old post, and I can’t change it.

    When I pick the new post via the Mixed Content method, the new post’s Title is correct, but the Slide title is from the old article. This is very odd, as the new post has its own url, etc. How can simply copying text from one post result in this old slide info being retained? I see no way to change it.

    When I try to “Edit slide options” via the settings gear icon, it shows the old post, with no trace of the new one.

    The slide does appear correctly on the front end, so I suppose it’s not that big a deal, but it’s very strange.

    Hi,

    When you add a post to a slider, the plugin allows you to customize its title/description and write content that is specific only for Featured Articles. This means that those texts will be displayed only in Featured Articles presentations.

    When you edited the post you made changes to the actual post/post content, not the slide title/content. The plugin detects and displays the old title in back-end along with the text because that’s the custom text it has picked up. If you go to post edit screen and look for “Featured Articles Lite – slide settings” meta panel, you will see the old post title/text in there. Basically, that’s the custom text entered for your post that you see in slider edit screen.

    In front-end everything shows correctly because in slider edit screen, panel “Slider Content”, tab “Text Options”, option “Get content from” you have selected “Post content”. If you change the option and choose “Custom text set on slide”, the old text will appear in front-end too.

    Please let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with, thank you.

    Okay, thanks. I figured there should be something in the post edit screen, but didn’t see anything, and it wasn’t in the Screen Options either. So, when you answered, I checked the plugin settings, and lo and behold, I had the “Allow slide editing on post edit” switched off. Turning that on allowed me to make the changes.

    Thanks for keeping up the support!
