Quickslider And My Background Image Keep Getting Unlinked

Recommended Posts

This is the second day in a row this has happened to the website I am working on: www.bakersdozencomedy.com. Yesterday one of the three Quickslider images I have on the home page stopped showing. I re-checked the Quickslider settings on the Home page and it looked like the below. It shows the URL, but not the image.

I tried relinking it to the image in the library and it wouldn't show up. I ended up uploading the same image again and then it worked. Today, I just had the same thing happen with the 2 other Quickslider images and also the background. Is this is a bug?

I've not heard of this happening before, and don't see any problem in your site in Firefox. Is this occurring in any particular browser?

I am using Firefox as well. Firefox is what I was using when I ran into this issue, as well. I am using Pagelines on several other sites and have never run into this before either. It's hosted through GoDaddy.

I don't think it's a bug. However, since you mention GoDaddy, it's possible that your hosting package has insufficient resources available when you're getting some traffic. The Quickslider may simply be holding back an image when insufficient memory is available to display it. I'd suggest contacting them and asking if they've allocated more than 32Mb for PHP processing in your site. Also ask if they can increase that to 128Mb. On my own site, I have it maxed at 256.

Unfortunately, as the code for WordPress and components like plugins, etc. gets bigger in volume, the demands on memory resources also grows exponentially. Servers don't always have the settings ready to meet the demand. Most hosts will accommodate such requests. If GoDaddy doesn't, let me suggest changing to BlueHost or other WordPress ready hosts.

Thanks Rob, for the quick response. I'll check with GoDaddy on the memory size, but I don't think it's related since I just built this site and only three people have been to this site - you, me and my client. I'll keep an eye on the site and see if it replicates the issue and report back.

Those are people. I bet if you checked your stats you'd find that hundreds of bots are looking at your site daily. About 20% of my traffic are bots. But your point is well taken.

Absolutely agreed. I hope it's a problem that never returns.

      I'd like to request a section (or that this could be enabled on the background settings of the existing sections) in which we could set a image to stay fixed, just as we can see in the link below:
      http://www.bootply.com/render/100702 (you can see 2 different background images and everything scrolls on top of it.)
      Is it possible to be done without having to code it via CSS every time?

      I received our monthly Alexa report, and it pointed out that there were missing alt tags on EVERY page on our site. Upon closer inspection, it looks like the QuickSlider which is used for the scrolling banners at the top of the site doesn't bring in the alt tags. Recently, you made a change to the RevSlider to allow images to have "alt" tags. Can you do that for the QuickSlider too?
      Thanks.

      Hi,
      I am trying to get the background image of the Revslider to be clickable and redirect to a link.
      Does anyone know how this is possible?
