If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I’ve been digging through the documentation and all the settings pages and so far haven’t been able to figure out what I’m missing here.
I can make a nice dynamic slideshow/slider in a post that automatically cross-fades between the *post’s* featured images, but when I try to do the same thing on *pages* I seem to be missing some of the settings.
On the new/edit post page there is a “Slideshow Options” section above the “Featured Media” section. I cannot find this same “Slideshow Options” section on the new/edit page screen, and I don’t see anything in the dynamic templates allowing me to modify the options to enable autorotation, etc.
Can I get a hint as to what I’m missing?
Somehow that meta box might not be enabled for viewing pages. Open up any page like you were going to edit it. Then scroll to the very top and you should see a little tab just under the admin bar on the right hand side that says “Screen Options”. Click that and in the drop down that appears make sure Slideshow Options is checked (and showing).
If it is checked but not displayed, try turning off all plugins you have installed and checking the option/display of it again.
