Meta Slider
[resolved] Sort order not saved (11 posts)

    I spent a great deal of time reorganizing the timeline on a slider for a renovation. Although it still shows in the proper sequence on my site - http://www.garycjones.ca/?page_id=2135, (Second slider) when I go back to edit the slider it's back in the original, unsorted order. I don't want to touch it in case this undoes all of my work.

    Hi ChecMark,

    Do you have any plugins installed that effect the sort order of posts?

    Regards,
    Tom.

    I have several plug-ins installed, but I don't know which one, if any, would have this affect.

    If you want to send me an email address I will send you my login information.

    Thanks.

    Gary

    Hi Gary,

    I've created a test slideshow and I think this is a bug. When you first add the slides they do not have an order associated with them. Before rearranging them, click 'save' and reload the page. I'll look to get this bug fixed in the next version of Meta Slider to ensure the slides are saved in the same order they're added to the slideshow.

    Regards,
    Tom.

    Thanks. I do save as soon as I add the slides, but I haven't reloaded the page. Great if this solves the issue.

    Cheers!

    Wow! For some reason things are really bad now.

    I created a new slider, called RENO - Exterior and went to add my slides. Although I could add single slides, when I tried to add multiple slides in a row, as soon as I held down the [shift] key I was looking at the Renovation pages and the Meta Slider menu was in red. When I clicked back on the slider menu none of the pictures were there. It didn't happen every time, but enough to be annoying.

    As you suggested I saved the Slider then reloaded the page, then started moving the slides into order. No sooner did I have them in order and saved the slider then they were all back in the order I added them and not the sort order.

    Frustrating to lose all that work every time.

    Yet another issue - when you are viewing the slider it keeps moving the page up and down on the transitions.

    The issues keep piling up.

    I don't want the sliders after the first one to "auto play" until the first one has finished; however, I do want them to start playing when clicked on. There doesn't seem to be any way to do this. The only thing I found was to include the "arrows" for previous and next, but this means manually advancing the slides. Even the arrows don't show up properly.

    Any solution?

    Thanks!

    Hi ChecMark,

    The sort ordering issues should be fixed in the next version (2.5) or you could download the development version if you don't want to wait.

    The 'moving up and down' issue can be fixed by clicking the 'smart crop' option - please see this page for more details: http://www.metaslider.com/documentation/image-cropping/

    I'm afraid it's not possible to start playing when they're clicked on, this would create a conflict if the user decided to set a URL on the slide.

    Regards,
    Tom.

    I read somewhere (can't find it now) about adding some code to the functions.php file to add pause/play to the sliders. It broke my theme and I was lucky to have a back-up.

    I want to use the sliders in the sidebars and the body but I need to be able to "click to play" to be able to have the slider follow the text.

    I am more than happy to go Pro is this feature is at all possible.

    Thanks!
