Thanks Devin for your willingness to help. WP 3.5.1 and Corona 1.3 – i dont know that i knew there was a 1.5 version
also, i typically use Chrome, but also looked at it in IE 8.
(in Chrome) There are 5 sliders, and the 1st left most one exhibits only a spinning ‘loading’ indicator, the 2nd slider is showing a Zoom (magnifying glass) indicator (why i dont know), and 3 -5 are showing the Zoom AND Loading indicator at the same time, yeargh!
(in IE8) the 1st slider displays a spinning loading indicator, the 2nd looks perfect, and 3-5 show spinning loading indicators.
haven’t tried firefox or other.
if none of this info helps with ideas I’ll see about getting you hooked up to take a look. thanks Do you think I should try getting corona1.5?February 18, 2013 at 3:57 am in reply to: Corona theme + AviaCordion slider Add Featured Media via URL failing on Local #90773
I’ve installed everything to a webhost, still having the same issues I had with the local setup sadly.
To reiterate the problem(s)
AviaCordion – when adding this into a page, I press the Upload for Upload media, then use From URL, and input url for an image file I’ve uploaded to the server. The path is correct, and is even seen in the thumbnail of the Add Featured Media section of the AviaCordion setup. But once I click preview or Update page, and then view the page, instead of inserting the image into the AviaCordion slider, it shows the URL. Clicking the URL brings up the image in the lightbox.
Weird, and frustrating.
Alternatively, if I Upload media through the “From Computer” method, which then saves the file into a WP constructed folder directory, the image does show up in the slider upon hover, but a “loading” type spinning progress image hovers over the center of the image indefinitely as you hover.
these seem like odd bugs unless i am somehow doing this process incorrectly though i’ve tried varying means.
i’m using Bluehost, and the latest WP version. I dont really have much in the way of extra plugins installed.December 20, 2012 at 1:34 am in reply to: Corona theme + AviaCordion slider Add Featured Media via URL failing on Local #90771
i’m running a plain install of WP with the corona theme applied. i’ve not installed any extra plugins. Yes Devin after some closer inspection I noticed the multiple images that get created at varying sizes to perform the slider illusion.
Still having trouble with the loading icon showing up and not being able to figure out the cause. Using the sample images that come with WP (photo of an apple for instance) and no loading icon shows up. When using self-uploaded images the loading icon shows up but not necessarily every time.
I guess something about my local setup is causing this. I’m planning on securing a webhost soon and i’ll setup a sandbox on it and see if the same occurs there.
thanks.November 17, 2012 at 9:28 pm in reply to: Corona theme + AviaCordion slider Add Featured Media via URL failing on Local #90769
A possible lead:
looking at the functions.php in the theme’s folder (corona in this case)
you see the following defined image sizes:
$avia_config = array(‘width’=>930, ‘height’=>370); // big images for fullsize pages and fullsize 2D & 3D slider
$avia_config = array(‘width’=>930, ‘height’=>523); // big images for single portfolio pages
$avia_config = array(‘width’=>610, ‘height’=>370); // big Image for aviacordion
for the AviaCordion slider, I noticed that if i use an image sized to 610 px in width, the loading icon didn’t appear.
Kind of annoying and doesn’t seem like a very ‘smart’ methodology if this is really the main reason i’m having the oddness occur. But it is a workaround for me(simply making sure my images match that criteria)
I assume applying this method would work for the other sliders, using the respective parameters defined in functions.php
i welcome anyone’s thoughts about handling this better or simply differently. would be nice if the sliders simply could handle differently sized images, perhaps in a future release or perhaps its not cost effective to code.November 15, 2012 at 10:39 pm in reply to: Corona theme + AviaCordion slider Add Featured Media via URL failing on Local #90767
the constant loading issue is occuring on all the sliders except for the 3d Piecmaker option. The others all show the loading icon, though sometimes it seems like its displaying the loading icon for one image rather than all that are in the slider.
I installed the 1.4 version of the Corona theme hoping that might help but had the same result.November 15, 2012 at 5:38 pm in reply to: Corona theme + AviaCordion slider Add Featured Media via URL failing on Local #90766
in a local setup utilizing WAMP,
adding featured media (images) to the AviaCordion slider from files on my computer, using the upload media functionality, when i go to preview the page or view it, the images show up but there is what appears to be a ‘loading icon’ overlaying each of them as if the image is still loading. This loading icon doesn’t go away unless you click on the image causing it to go to full size of course.
any idea why i’m getting a loading icon when the image is already loaded in the slider? i’m working on this for a client but these peculiarities are causing serious resistance to my productivity. This slider was a big attractant for the client so i’d really like to make it work (or use something just like it in its stead).
