Hi webtako,

Is there a way to make width 100% and height auto for the slider? In the settings it is only pixel controlled. If there is a workaround could you please let me know.

Thanks.

webtako

Would this work for you, you can set it to responsive and have the container around the shortcode. the banner rotator should be 100% of the container size.

Thanks for your response. I have 2 rotators on 1 page, so when I set it to responsive it worked on the first slider but not the second one.

Okay. Sorry about that. The problem with the second rotator was being caused by something in my code. I have fixed it, and checking responsive did work for both rotators. Thanks so much for your help.

glad it’s working

Waste of money – doesn’t work (on WP 3.8)

Shows the image loader animation but no images.

webtako
It’s working for 3.8, this is a link to a sample page on wp 3.8. http://beaninteractive.com/wp/?page_id=121

Didn’t you just buy this like a minute ago? why don’t you show me your page and let me take a look at what’s wrong instead of jumping the gun here.

Apologies for my haste – I just get frustrated when a plugin doesn’t work which is sadly quite common.

I had this error when installing the plugin:

The plugin generated 182 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.

I called the gallery ‘Gallery’ which gives me this: [banner_rotator id=”1”]

I then used ’’Add New’ and ‘Choose image’ and then ‘Update slide’

And guess what, it *&(D^% works now. Typical!

I purchased this plugin twice b the way as the site shows it as V3 but the version I’d bought when setting up the site a while back was V2.

The file shows this as still Version 2, not sure if that is relevant.

Anyway, huge apologies, this now seems to work (don’t know why it took two goes to get it working but looks ok now).

Despite my earlier (and unnecessary) rant, this works fine and is recommended ;)

webtako

great that’s it’s working for you now.

the version number for the wp plugin is 2 but the jquery standalone version is 3, so i guess kind of confusing a bit.

but thanks for the purchases

Hi

I got the wordpress version of this plugin a few hours ago and when i implement it i just hangs on the loading animation whether on my custom theme or the stock wp theme.

any ideas on what the problem is ?

thanks http://projectblue00.co.uk/ubertutors_wp/contact-us/

i took a quick look at your page, you just have an extra code tag surrounding the shortcode, just remove that and it should work. If you switch to the text tab, you’ll probably see the code tags.

I think pasting into wordpress visual editor might copy some other formatting tags, in this case, the code tags.

Also, make sure your first image is there too.

Thanks for that i would never of thought of doing that, now it works fine.

in text mode the code tag did surround the short code once removed the images loaded up. thanks for your prompt reply.

webtako

no problem, the table column that lists the shortcode uses the wordpress code styling, so sometimes pasting into the editor pastes the code tags also

Hi, we use some very aggressive caching (plugin/cdn) and despite this plugin being jquery it appears it is still being cached. Is there anything you can suggest to exclude this plugin from being cached? Thank you

webtako

not quite sure what you mean, you mean the images are cached? you can send or post me a test link too, i’ll take a look. my email is webtako@gmail.com

Hi, I just noticed an issue in Firefox with text bunching up within this rotator. I have line-height as 1.4, but the text kerning is very tight and overlapping. Please help.

webtako

Hi, is there any chance you could supply code to insert Banner Rotator in a template file but as a floating box like alert/notification popups? Really appreciated. Thank you

webtako

did you want something like a popup dialog with just the banner rotator similar to the preview feature of the plugin’s admin?

let me know, send me an email, i’ll send you the code on how to do that

Hi, I have sent a massage via your author page. If you could help out it would really be appreciated.

Great work again! Have used the jQuery stand-alone on a few projects and was happy to see it as a WP plugin for a current project.

Being the first time I’ve used the WP version, I am very impressed. So easy to work with. Seems I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock on the back-end though as the site gets ready to be handed over to the editors.

When a user logs in as anything other than admin, they don’t get the dashboard interface showing. Project needs the end-user (editor role) to be able to edit, add, remove banners and get the short-codes for their posts without access to other admin features (like removing plugins lol)!

Fiddled with some role permissions in functions, but nothing that turned this on for the editor user role. Am I missing an obvious setting somewhere? Can you advise please? All on the front-end is fine.

It’s a brand new install, so WP 3.8.1 and 1.5.5 of WTRotator.

InsignisDesign

I’ve installed role editor to see if I could find a trigger role permission WTR may be bound to for user level to no avail. Most of the other similar plugins like CPT and ACF, WP Security are tied to “Manage Options” it seems.

I have everything turned on in the editor role now including deprecated level 0 – 10 settings. This role is essentially an admin without the title and still WTR control panel will not display… getting the sinking feeling you have to be admin to run the WTR editor to add / rejig banners. I disabled Better Security plugin without resolution either.

webtako

hi,

thanks for buying it, I think it should be easy on my end to allow editor to go into the plugin too as well as admin.

I am currently working on this plugin on some additional features, i will see if i can add the editor role to it.

webtako

actually it was a very easy change on my part, if you want to change minimum role to editor, just send me an email, i’ll send you the changes in return.

Hi Webtako

When i install your plugin to wordpress it doesnt appear on the menu. I am using WP 3.8.1

And I am also a admin,

any idea what is happening?

webtako

hi vasbi, sorry about that, i’ve uploaded an update yesterday but it was missing part of a user capability code but it has been re-uploaded today and fixed.

You should re-download it again from your download section.

Can this plugin be used in the header.php template or does it only work via shortcode on pages and posts?

Hi. I’ve downloaded the plugin but when I try to install it comes up with an error:

Fatal error: Only variables can be passed by reference in wp-banner-rotator.php on line 712.

How do I fix this?

Thanks

webtako

what version of wp are you using? not sure why you are getting this, but it’s working ok on my wordpress install 3.8.1.

Can you send me a temporary user account to your admin, i’ll see if i can find out why you’re getting that error.

Hello,

I purchased banner rotator but it generated jQuery conflict with another script..

I am working from scratch so I would like to add an wp_enqueue_scripts to my function.php

Would you help me please to insert a wp_enqueue_scripts code to avoid conflict script.

Regards.
