    Most likely you have installed some minify plugin such as W3 Total cache and minified all files into one and broke slider functionality. Don’t get me wrong, W3 is a great plugin and all but you have to configure it properly to get the best results.

    Otherwise there might be some conflicts with other plugins but it is highly unlikely.

    I don’t have a W3 plugin. And I don’t think I’ve added any plugins in the past year. When i alternate the slide in the 1st position they all work. I can also copy and paste the links in my browser and they work. The slideshow function just doesn’t work.

    Please copy/paste your shortcode you used for slider. And it would be good to see your website as well.

    This topic is covered in theme documentation:

    Please read it and if you still have problems with setup, please let me know where you get stuck and I will try to help you from there.

    Thank you…but I only saw information about the Homepage Slider not the actual Unite Slideshow. I tried using a few plugins but it just doesn’t look right or as good as the default plugin.

    This theme uses CPT Bootstrap Carousel and you can setup multiple slideshows and place them inside Posts/Page and elsewhere in your website.

    You can read more about this plugin here:

    i tried that already and the placement and shape of the slideshow was weird. There’s no way i can just use the Unite Slideshow? It works, the slides just don’t change.

    I can’t get the slideshow to work in the proper place on the home page. Please help! I have read all documents and still can’t figure it out. I Thanks in advance!!

    Try adding this to Theme Options – Other – Custom CSS

    .carousel {
        margin-top: -30px;

    It’s the Unite Theme specifically. My homepage slideshow and photo gallery both work with other themes, however i lose all of my design if I switch. is there a fix for the Unite theme. The slideshow feature just isn’t working with the Unite Theme.

    A recent development: My Unite Slideshow on the homepage will not advance to the next slide and it doesn’t have the small circles indicating there are more than one slide in the slideshow. When I click on the advance button, the homepage refreshes with a # at the end of the URL.
    I’ve verified all of the image URLs and the links. Currently the slideshow options have 5 slides to rotate through.

    Recently updated plug-ins: 1. akismet 2. Fast Secure Contact Form 3. NextGEN Gallery by Photocrati

    Same here. Ive been told its the actual Theme. I tried changing to a new one (i did a preview) and everything worked just fine. Problem is….i dont want a new one. It will require me to give up all my custom design i had done. Somebody should create an update to fix this issue. Cause it sucks!!!!

    Update: I just deactivated my NextGEN Gallery plug-in and now my slideshow is working. Any ideas on what NextGEN is doing to the Unite theme?
