Hi everybody,

I just upgraded from EcoPro to Pagelines Frameworks. Can't get the Carousel on Home Page to appear. I've followed the Pagelines Docs to the Letter.

I've tried inputting the "Carousel" in the Site Header, or only on the "Blog" part of the site.

I've tried both creating a Page with the Carousel Template as per the instructions. Even tried only having the Carousel Meta settings saved within Pagelines > Special but not creating a Page with the Carousel Template.

Don't know if it matters, but NextGEN gallery doesn't work on the site, if that matters at all.

If you aren't using NextGEN, then what are you using the feed your carousel? You have to give it something to pull from. If it's a category, did you input the correct category slug in the main carousel settings? (PageLines -> Special -> Carousel Meta -> Carousel Image/Link Mode -and- Carousel - Post Category Name)

I wanted to use Post Thumbnails for links, not NextGEN gallery.

Have you already uploaded the thumbnails using the "add featured image" setting in the post editor?

Hi Rangelone and Happy Holidays. Thank you for your concern, but it seems that the problems has been solved, with me disabling (and then removing) WP Minify. I can tell, because I had an issue in another thread (http://www.pagelines...l-on-frameworks) When I came back to try to reproduce the problem, then the Carousel appeared normally. All is well :) So, to you users in the future experiencing the same issues, try disabling WP Minify :)

Caching plugins are usually the first thing to disable when having an issue. ;) Thanks for letting us know!
