Support » Plugin: Slideshow Satellite » Slideshow does not load on Homepage, works in inner Pages

  • Resolved dfa_admin


    Hi I have the slideshow in my Header file. It doesn’t load on the Homepage (Main Index Template page) but it loads on all the inner pages. (Page template)

    The annoying thing is that it WAS working. And then when I logged in the other day it wasn’t. I know it can work, because it was. And then it suddenly stopped working on the homepage (just getting continuous loading icon) but when I go to a inner page it works perfectly. I haven’t installed any plugins or done anything to it.

    I have plugin version 2.0.2

    Are you seeing any javascript errors? If you’re seeing continous loading it’s usually a conflict, or some prior javascript issue that has a jquery issue that then causes my plugin to error out.

    I’m not sure….why would it work on the inner pages but not the homepage? The homepage has the same type of content…just text and images. I don’t think I have any other type of javascript running beside the one for the plugin.

    I have the site under construction right now. But here are the view source links..let me know if you can take a look at these and see if there’s a problem. I appreciate your quick response.

    I think your Maintenance mode must be on, all I see is:

    <style type="text/css">
    	body { background: url('') no-repeat;
    	background-position: top center;
    		margin: 0 auto;
    		padding: 0;
    		width: 1060px;
    		min-height: 1238px;

    Ok I just took maintenance mode off…I’ll need to put it back on quickly though since Client needs it to be private…let me know when I can turn it back on, thanks!

    Ah, the old no css and js being loaded for the satellite, please check out the manual and look for “Troubleshooting”

    You need to either do [satellite display=off] or turn off Shortcode Requirement, as you’re most likely doing the embed through PHP rather than wordpress pages.

    Okay! Yes, I’m using php but I’m using a php function that “echos” the there another way to embed in PHP?

    No, that’s the best way. You just have to workaround that with either/or of those solutions

    Shortcode Requirement was already turned off…where should I put [satellite display=off] ?

    Unfortunately, the problem still persists. Neither of these solutions work. The slideshow works on the pages. It just doesn’t work on the homepage. I keep trying to see if there’s anything wrong with my Main Index Template and I can’t figure it out. This is very discouraging seeing as it was working and now it suddenly does not. I even put the short code in a page and then echoed that page id in my template and that wouldn’t load either! I have a feeling it’s something to do with the index. Just don’t know what!
    I deactivated my other plugins and that didn’t help. I’m at a loss for a solution and I would really like to use this plugin…unless you can refer me to another plugin with caption overlays.

    I figured something out….on my homepage it loads this in the footer, but on my inner pages, it loads it in the header…is this why it’s not working on my homepage? Because it’s automatically being placed in the footer and not the head tags like on the inner pages? I wouldn’t consider this thread resolved.

    You know, I think you’re right. If that is indeed still happening I’d try and figure out how to change that. So many themes have some strange custom code that can mess with plugins

    Thanks for your reply. Yes I figured it out. It was my theme. I switched to a different blank template theme and everything works perfectly. I’m assuming there was a strange code maybe in the functions.php or somewhere. Thanks for your help!

    hi, i hope someone help me to solve this problem.
    i put a shortcode into the page home.php page but it seems like doesnt link the style of carrousel.
    this is the code
    <?php echo do_shortcode(‘[satellite gallery=1 auto=on thumbs=on]’); ?>

    i dont know what happens, any idea?
    thanks a lot!

    Looks like you’re dealing with the same issue as above. Is there a WordPress page that’s being rendered here as well? that’s when you can add the [satellite display=off]

    Otherwise you’d have to go to Advanced Settings and choose “Shortcode Requirement: Off”
