Support » Plugin: Slider by Soliloquy - Responsive Image Slider for WordPress » Soliloquy Slider not working on my homepage

    Hey! Please help!
    I’ve been using the soliloquy plugin since July on my blog, but when I logged in a couple days ago the slider on my front page was completely gone.

    I didn’t change anything. I added and deleted some plugins, but they had nothing to do with your plugin. I can’t get it to show up no matter what I do!

    My url is LifeBeforeEternity.com

    Please help me out!

  • I did some more research and it seems like it might has something to do with the “slug” not pulling up the slider. The CSS in my template uses the slug to pull up the slider on my homepage. Is that issue being resolved? What can I do in the meantime to fix my homepage. I’m not sure how to change the css code in my editor.

    Sorry I can’t help but the EXACT same thing happened to me!

    The issue is the plugin. Depending on how you have the slider implemented in your website – you can replace the SLUG with the ID.

    If you are using a widget to display the slider, i.e., [soliloquy slug=”home-slider”] then switch to the ID version which would be this – [soliloquy id=”YOUR SLIDER ID”]

    If the slider is embedded into your theme, you will need to change something like this – if ( function_exists( ‘soliloquy’ ) ) { soliloquy( ‘home-slider’, ‘slug’ ); } to this – if ( function_exists( ‘soliloquy’ ) ) { soliloquy( ‘YOUR SLIDER ID’ ); }

    To locate the code in theme, try looking in your functions.php file.

    To locate your Slider ID, you would open up your slider and look on the right hand side.

    Evidently this is an issue with the last update of the plugin which was 7 days ago.

    Thank you for your help Anita! I’m not sure how to change that code. But I was so impatient trying to get it fixed I ended up calling godaddy and they had a restore point of my site before I updated the plug-in. For now, I will be careful not to update that plug-in.

    You are right. The slug is what the template uses to call the slider. But I don’t know how to change that in the coding. I’m afraid I mess up more. If I put this in the code “– if ( function_exists( ‘soliloquy’ ) ) { soliloquy( ‘YOUR SLIDER ID’ ); }” will it change all of the instances the code uses the slug into the id?

    You are using the Novelty Child Theme by Restored316 Designs. You need to open up your functions.php file.

    Look for the following code around line 265:

    soliloquy( ‘home-slider’, ‘slug’ );

    Change that to this:

    soliloquy( ‘YOUR SLIDER NUMBER’, ‘id’ );

    Once you do that – you can update the plugin.
