Feature slider set to "use all posts" but it's missing categories

Question

Posted · Report post

I'm using a feature slider on my home page, which is using the default template, and have the feature slider set to "use all posts" in the page's metapanel. But it doesn't show all the posts in all the categories. It shows posts from these categories: blog newsletter It does not show posts from these categories: episodes dictionary segments Changing settings in Pagelines > Page Options > Site Deafaults > Features doesn't help. It also doesn't make a difference if I choose a different template. I can make other changes (such as the transition, speed, etc.) to the page's metapanel settings and they are indeed reflected on the home page feature slider, as expected. I can set it to show just posts from one category and that works fine. This is a screen grab of the metapanel settings of the page. beta.waywordradio.org-metapanel-slider.png I'm using PageLines 2.2.2 on a beta site that is password protected and closed to visitors.

Grant, the questions I have.... How many categories do you have (don't forget to count Uncategorized)? If you have 12 slides set to show but you have 15 categories... well, 3 won't show. Do all posts have an image (featured) that the slider may pick up? Remember, it doesn't pick up the 1st image.. only the Featured Image.

Just seven categories, including Uncategorized. All posts don't have an image. Those that don't should show just the PageLines leaf image. That's what's happening for the posts that are showing which do not have any image, neither featured nor in the post.

Just reread your first question, which is confusing. There are thousands of posts on the site across all the categories. To test this particular issue, I made new test posts for the categories that aren't showing. As I am displaying by descending date, they should appear first in the slide show, regardless of how many categories I have, right?

Hi Grant, So we can try to recreate this issue, can you tell us if the categories that aren't showing are child categories ? So your website is not available and is protected, would it be possible to let us know what version of PageLines Framework you're using please.

@Danny, none of them are child categories. My PageLines version is 2.2.2.

Have you tried deactivating your plugins?

Well, it turns out to be the PageLines Customize plugin. I disabled everything else but that and the PageLines Sections plugin and turning it off and on turns the problem off and on. I've tried removing everything from Custom Code and from Header Scripts and the problem persists. What now?

Figured it out: there was custom code in the PageLines Customize functions.php file. Funny how something you did just a few weeks ago just disappears from your brain. :/
