Tagged: rename layer slider
I know you can’t rename a layer slider in the front end so I changed the names of the layer sliders in the back end (I have about 12 which I duplicated in the front end). The names change in the DB ok and when I view the layer slider in the layer slider options in the theme they are changed too. However, when I then go into the avia builder on a page it reverts back to the old name of the slider and changes the name back to the old name in the DB.
For example, when I duplicated the slides they were all named to ‘slide 1 copy’, slide 1 copy copy’ so I changed them as advised above to ‘homepage slider’, ‘about us page slider’ etc. This worked until I edited the page again.
Any ideas on why this is happening, perhaps I am missing something in the DB? I really don’t want to build from scratch over 12 sliders when renaming should work??
I can’t reproduce this behavior and it would be very surprising if the theme renames the slider because
1) The slider title data is just stored in the wp_layerslider table and the theme only stores the slider id. So it’s impossible for the theme to restore the old title simple because it doesn’t save it and there’s no copy of the title string anywhere else in the database.
2) The theme doesn’t come with any code which would rename the slider.
However make sure that you rename all occurrences of the slider title: http://www.clipular.com/c?14450004=4J5S_2zO7OeRJjsJ_XRQzvKw75U&f=.png – there’re actually 2 occurrences for each slider.
