Can't display Slides on Home Page
October 9, 2011 at 14:51 #3842
I am using the Foundation theme. I am able to to set featured images for the slides, but they won’t publish. I click publish, the arrow spins, then stops. The slides remain in Draft state. Any ideas? I tried resizing the images. Is a specific image type required?October 9, 2011 at 20:01 #3844
That’s a most unusual problem. Are you able to create new pages or posts and publish them or do they also remain in a draft state like the slides do?October 9, 2011 at 20:57 #3847
Pages and posts publish just fine.October 9, 2011 at 22:21 #3850
Would you mind emailing a login to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can take a closer look?October 9, 2011 at 22:55 #3851
I sent you one.October 9, 2011 at 23:15 #3852
Thanks. I was able to publish the slides. I’m not sure why they weren’t updating beyond a draft status. It shouldn’t be browser specific, but I was using Chrome when I made the switch. If you run into any other trouble, let me know.October 9, 2011 at 23:34 #3853
Thank you so very much! Someone else told me Chrome was better. I think I’ll switch!March 9, 2012 at 10:31 #5303Christina K.Participant
I am having this similar issue, and I’ve checked my site on Chrome. Please advise.

I took a look at your site. It appears that the images in your slider aren’t quite large enough to fill the slideshow area. Make sure the images you upload are at least 630 pixels wide by 420 pixels high.
Let me know if you have any trouble,

I seem to be having the same problem. I have 4 images as slides. They’re 640×480. And they don’t seem to be loading. Help? Thanks. pacaresforall.orgMarch 11, 2012 at 17:53 #5321Michael FroehlichParticipant
Nevermind. I figured it out. Thanks.March 11, 2012 at 22:11 #5324
Glad you were able to get the slides up and running. If you have any other trouble, let me know.
Enjoy your week,

Hi, i am having trouble getting images to show on slider, I have uploaded images to media library. Please let me know what I am doing wrong.
Thank you.March 11, 2012 at 23:29 #5334
To add slides to the slideshow, go to the Media section and select slides. There you can add a new slide by clicking the “Add Slide” button that’s at the top of the “Slides” screen.
From there, adding a slide is similar to adding a post or page. You can give the slide a title so you can help you keep track of them. There is a field for an optional link for your slide. Just enter the full URL you’d like the slide to link to.
The actual image for the slide is the “Featured Image” for the slide. Click the “Set Featured Image” link and then upload your image. For best results size it to be 630 pixels wide by 420 pixels tall. Once the upload is finished, click the “use as featured image” link at the bottom of the lightbox.
Then publish your slide and it should appear on the home page. If you don’t see it make sure you have your home page set to display a slideshow and not a video in the theme options page.
If you’d like a quick video that explains this, there is a quick video showing how this works in the Progress theme. The only difference is Progress includes captions.
Let me know if you need any help,

I recently switched from the slideshow to video. I switched back and now the slideshow won’t cycle anymore. Any ideas?

Any chance you could send a link so I can take a closer look for you?
