    1. No button for adding images appear
    2. Even if one repair the php file then at least 5 more errors occur: cannot be used images that have been previously uploaded. New images are accepted only.
    3. The description field works only if is filled up with an URL and not description
    4. The option for Titles does not work.
    5. The alt text as well.
    6. And one more thing: It works under some old WP Themes but does not work under Twenty Thirteen for instance.

    This plug-in is out-to-date but there are several plugin fixes.

    Open up sponsors-coursel.php

    1. First fix: add media button not appearing
    On line 369 you will find the following code:

    echo _media_button(__('Add an Image'), 'images/media-button-image.gif?ver=20100531', 'image',$scwp_plugin_name);

    replace with:

    echo media_buttons(__('Add an Image'), 'images/media-button-image.gif?ver=20100531', 'image',$scwp_plugin_name);

    2. Second fix: common jquery issue (interfering with other jquery plugins within your installation)
    On line 68 you will find the function sponsors_carousel_enqueue_scripts, within this function delete the following code:

    // jquery
    wp_deregister_script('jquery');
    wp_register_script('jquery', ($plugin_url . '/jquery-1.4.2.min.js'), false, '1.4.2');
    wp_enqueue_script('jquery');

    Just to let you all know, a kind developer patched the plugin five months ago.

    His blog post (http://www.letswoolgather.com/sponsors-carousel-patch-wordpress-plugins/) teaches you how to fix the plugin to work with wordpress 3.5 and above, but also provides a downloadable .zip file at the end of the post.

    I highly recommend it!

    His patch doesn't fix the common jQuery issue, only the mediabutton which I also posted in my previous post.
