[Resolved] version 2.1.18 Slideshow issue
I am using a modified theme from Thememagic – I just updated my slideshow plugin tonight and now only one of my slideshows works.
I have one on a website page and one on the theme option homepage.
Since updating the homepage option slideshow doesn’t show an image. I’m sure it’s the coding, but don’t know where to begin…
Could you please check if the homepage’s slideshow has any slides at all? Nothing seems to wrong with the output itself, except the slideshow doesn’t have any slides yet.
The original homepage slide has been up and was functioning for a few days. At that time it was the only slideshow with an image on the site.
Yesterday I did 2 things: First I updated the slideshow plugin as it had an update available. Afterwards I uploaded pictures to the alternate slideshow on the renovations page.
After I entered some other content on alternate pages, I noticed my homepage slide was not showing up – there were no changes made to it directly.
For troubleshooting I checked the settings, removed and re-added the image for that slideshow and nothing. That image is currently set in two places: Theme options – Homepage Settings – first slider image (and 2nd to test) AS WELL AS in a slideshow called “home”.
I have added and removed the slide image a few times AS WELL AS deleting and re-adding the slideshow called “home” to troubleshoot and nothing is working.. one issue with this template is that the homepage isn’t it’s own “page” but controlled exclusively through the theme options – I’m wondering if the update somehow didn’t transfer data to that theme options page code or something?
That may very well be the problem. Is it a free theme? If so, could you please send me a download link so I could see what the problem is for myself?
It is a personally modified version of the free theme *Thememagic
This is the original theme link – before anything was customized:
Is there a particular page of code you need? I could copy/paste?
– if you need any modified sections of code I should clarify. Since the link is pre-modification/public free version. Thanks!
Hi! Just wondering if there are an updates for this issue?
I’m sorry for my late response, and thanks very much for your patience.
I believe I was able to fix the issue you were having, but you may have to reinstall some things to get the slideshow to work again on your home page.
Thanks for the update – unfortunately it’s still not working. After updating I tried deleting and re-adding my homepage slide, the entire slideshow for that section and then I even deleted and re-added the entire plugin. No dice.
It was all working prior to the original update, so I’m not sure if you could attempt again, or if I should just attempt an alternate plugin for that homepage? Again it’s not a “page” but controlled under theme options – just like the homepage word boxes.
Oh, I thought this might help – we have the exact same set up for another site – that is still correctly functioning here –
http:www.legendary-fitness.com – the slideshow has 4 images on the homepage and quite a few under the photos page. It’s using version 2.1.18 and had 0 issues…
I think a couple of slideshow settings may have been left behind in the post-meta belonging to the posts that save the theme’s front-page content. This causes the slideshow to show in its default state, instead of showing up the way you set it up to display.
The only way to solve the problem, is to delete the posts in the ‘wp_posts’ table that have the post_type ‘optionsframework’. This means deleting the theme’s front-page content, as it does not do this when deleted from WordPress.
Otherwise I’m afraid that I cannot help you aqny further, I’m terribly sorry.
Wouldn’t my other website with the same version and modified theme also have the issue? Is it possible I have messed up something in the code somewhere?
How many pages would need to be deleted? I don’t operate in the .php files so that concerns me. How would I get the front-page content back again? REinstall the theme?
Also I can post the “home” slideshow into any other page and it works. Just not the homepage of the site in theme options.
If you could send me your modified theme to email@example.com I’d try running the slideshow on the front page out. Although you said you had it working on the front page before the slideshow’s update.
Reinstalling the theme won’t work, it doesn’t delete its data from the database. After reinstalling the problem would still exist.
As for the ‘home’ slideshow working on the other pages: That’s what I expected, the slideshow’s data (settings and slides) are being overridden by the theme’s data and therefore appear to be empty.
Please send me the modified theme to the aforementioned e-mail address, I’ll have a look at it. Perhaps I can write a little plugin to clean up your front page settings.
I am having a similar issue. I use the Graphene theme, and my slideshow that was working, is no longer appearing on two different pages. Do you have any suggestions for getting the slideshow to reappear?
AVision’s problem was solved when we found out that the wrong slideshow ID had been entered. After entering the correct one, it worked just fine. Perhaps you have a different problem, though.
If the solution that worked for AVision doesn’t work for you, could you please provide me with a link to the page the slideshow is supposed to show on?
