Hello, I am working on a site that is not published yet. I am creating a slider that is for “Posts Slides”. When I enable the thumbnails so that the thumbnail photos of the next slides show, the thumbnails are blank. I’d like this to automatically show the thumbnail of the next slide (generated by featured image of the post).
This only seems to work when I create image slides. On Posts Slides, I do not have to load the individual featured images of posts slides into the slider for it to show all slides associated with the noted category, but why won’t the thumbnails show?
Also I watched your video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVvn-hv0A88&index=4&list=PLh-6IaZNuPo4MHvfzrTovXRuU7WKXkfWh
I noticed that under the Thumbnails—> Thumbnail Image Size,
The options under “Thumbnail Image Size” in your video are: thumbnail, medium, large, and post-thumbnail, but on my screen post-thumbnail is missing. Could this be the issue?
When you want to add thumbnails to Posts Slides, you can’t use the “Auto Generate Thumbnails” option. Instead, what you need to do is add the [sp_image_src.thumbnail] tag in the Thumbnails editor (second button from the slide panel).
Ahh I found your comment… I will see if this works!
Hello, I have used for plugin for sometime now, but just realised that there is no option to pin my images in slider. At least not an easy way.
Is there such a function or I’m missing something?
I’m not sure I understand the question? Please let me know what you’re referring to by pinning?
I mean pinning by pinterest. Like when you hover over the image pin button shows or have pin button on actual photo. like in Envira gallery.
I have tried to install various pin buttons, but none of them work with your slider. They just don’t pick up those photos as able to pin.
I tested a few and the reason why the pinterest buttons don’t appear is the use of CSS3 animations in the slider. It seems that the button can’t calculate its proper position.
I would like the slideshow to show in a lightbox when clicking on a button. I don’t want the slideshow to be embedded in the page at all. There should only be a button ‘Open slideshow’. How can I do that ?
Thanks, but wouldn’t it be easier to simply put the functionality back? Saying it is not used much sounds more like an assumption than a factual thing. I would definitely used it and it does not hurt to have this feature in the plugin.
I understand what you’re saying, but I had this request maybe 2 or 3 times since I released the new version, 2 years ago, and it also wasn’t used much in the old version, so I decided that it’s not worth the effort of adding it. Anyway, I will add it to the list and probably add it in a future update, but I can’t do it in the very near future because I’m working on something else.
Hey. I understand you’re busy and I appreciate that you are willing to add it back. The plugin is awesome (Ive tried many but the lazy-loading feature of your plugin is just top-notch compared to others) and opening the slideshow from a button or a hyperlink is the only feature I’m missing.
Thanks! I’ve added the feature on the TODO list and I hope to get to it soon.
hi. it’s possible to change the language of the layers (a transparent png—english.png, or spanish.png) with the press of a button? So hiding a layer to load/show another one? thanks
Hello, I would like to update the Slider Pro plugin. I am currently using version 3.6, which is quite old i noticed. I updated to the 4.4.0 version, but am unable to import existing sliders. I read on http://support.bqworks.com/hc/en-us/articles/214910786-Updating-the-Slider-PRO-plugin it is advised to run version 3 and 4 parallel. I would like to update my version 3.6 at least to version 3.9, but I can’t find version 3.9 anywhere. Can you help me out?
I would like to update, because I am currently in the process of making my website AMP compatible and the sliders are shown as vertical “rows” of images, which is not a very nice sight. Thanks, Robert
You can download version 3.9 from here. I wrote a release note here.
Great Plug-in but I am having some urgent problems with layers stacking weirdly after switching browser tabs. Please reply to my support ticket #3521 asap thanks.
I have a post slide that is slow to load. I just want to know if this slide load fast on home page and have auto add post category with thumbnail on the right and title on the main image?
Yes, I would say it’s pretty fast and it also uses caching to dramatically improve the loading time.
Hi I only use latest post cos with caching it sometimes ignore new post. Will it display my new post from one category as soon as its published on home slide?
Because of the caching system, the slider will not show the new post immediately, by default, but I can provide a small snippet which you can add to your functions.php file that will clear the slider’s cache each time a new post is published, so that it will be reflected in the slider immediately.
Thanks mate. On your demo, when I click post title is not linking to any post? what I want is the slide theme with thumbnail content, vertical slides
It’s possible to do what you want, even if it’s not showcased in the demo.
Hi, is it possible to use the browser window height as your slider and images height so that the slider use the full height of your window to display an image? If yes what will you need to get work?
Yes, that would be possible if I understand correctly what you need. You just have to set the slider’s Height option to 100vh (viewport height) and it will fill the entire height.
Hi david, thanks for your quick reply! I tried 100vh and it looks like it works. The height is stretched, but the width is disproportionate. How do I get the width also stretched in the same ratio? Sorry if this is a bothersome question.
Maybe stretched is not the right description. I meant the width and height addapts to window size within the original ratio proportion
If you want the slider to be full width, you can se the Force Size option to Full Width; if you want it to be full screen, you can set it to Full Window.
Ah…I assume the Force Size function lies in the paid version? If so and my requirement is met I am buying
Yes, it’s in the paid version.
Did I miss somewhere in your documentation that it is NOT POSSIBLE to upgrade from version 3.x to version 4.x? That would be a very good piece of information to prominently display to your long-time customers. Not only is the name of the plugin different, but the v3.x sliders are exported in XML, and v4.x requires JSON formatted imports. And the option names have all changed, so using a 3rd party XML to JSON conversion tool is also useless.
I’ve mentioned it several times in the Comments and I’ve also put a link on the main page to this release note. Please take a look and if you have further questions, please let me know.
