I am having trouble getting images to appear in the slider. I’ve read through the documentation but have not found where I’m going wrong.
I’ve chosen to use the accordion slider from the Mainpage options. I’ve populated it by selecting a category. I’ve created some posts and attached images to them from the Media library. However, when I view the main page no images load. All I get is the loading spinner graphic.
In the “Setting a preview Picture” section of the documentation it mentions image sizes for the slider, so I attempted to add a preview picture, but the “Post Thumbnail” field does not appear for me. I only have the “Post Thumbnail Options” field.
Can you please explain how I attach images to a post so they appear in the slider. If it is the thumbnail image which the slider references, do you have an explination why I do not have the “Post Thumbnail” field.
Thanks for you help!September 23, 2010 at 9:45 am #34713October 5, 2010 at 6:43 am #34714October 5, 2010 at 4:23 pm #34715
You need to set a featured image for the posts which should appear in the slider.October 10, 2010 at 8:37 am #34716
Thanks for the reply Dude.
Setting a feature image does not work for me. I click the Set featured image link in the Featured Image section. From the Set feature image dialogue which opens, I show the options for an image in my Media Library, click the Use as featured image link, and then Save all changes. This does not seem to change anything. No images appear in the slider.
Do I need to configure any options, or select an image in a different way to what I described?
Thanks again for your help.October 10, 2010 at 8:42 am #34717

Thanks for your help Dude.
My problem was with my Set Feature Image dialogue box not functioning properly. After re-installing WordPress the Set Feature Image started working and I was able to populate the slider.October 25, 2010 at 9:11 pm #34721
I’m basically having the same problem. I can’t set either as thumbnail or accordion slider.
Would be great if you could set a demo for me too.
Just sent an e-mail with the site details.
