Feature slider buggin out

Recommended Posts

Website is http://timarndtfitness.com

Pagelines ver. 2.4.2

WP ver. 3.5.1

 

It's my friend's site and he updated to the latest version of PL yesterday.  After he did the features are now displayed all the way down the page rather than exchanging in the slider.  I've deactivated all of the plugins and it still looks the same.

 

I can't figure out what might be causing this.

 

Image attached.

Hi,

 

Please look over the slides, making sure the images are in the background, not the media area.

 

Add this code anywhere after body {} in Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code:

#page #feature-area {
overflow: hidden;
}

Let us know if this resolves the issue.

Finally figured out what it was.  There was a Twitter widget from Jetpack that was outdated and when the update occurred it was crashing several different aspects of the site.  I removed that widget from the sidebar and replaced it with the Twitter Timeline Jetpack widget and everything came back working perfectly!

Glad you found it. An outdated plugin can do so much damage.

Actually I spoke too soon.  It's back to not working again.  I'm at a loss for why it will work for a little bit and then it won't work again.

And now it's working again.  I don't get it.  I disabled all plugins again.  Forced refresh. Still didn't work.  Re-enabled the ones needed.  Refreshed, still didn't work.  Waited a few minutes.  Refreshed again and now it's working.

It could be that whatever's conflicting in the plugins is taking a while to catch up. Viewing your site now it all seems to be working fine.

 

Do you have any cache plugins installed or any caching through a cdn or your host? This could be masking results or changes whilst you're refreshing the page.

I am having the same issue as jeremyh78. I upgraded and the feature slider spilled down the page. I turned off all possible conflicting plugins (I don't have many) I carefully examined every character of CSS. I double checked all the settings. I checked to see that the features were entered consistently. I've run out of ideas. I've built many websites with Pagelines and it worked fine before the upgrade. I don't claim to be any expert, but this shouldn't be happening. For now, I have that CSS snippet from above inserted because my client is angry and it freezes the slider for now with one image, so you can't see the problem, but its still there. Someone have any real ideas please?!!

Whoah......I may have found it!!!  Just one of the "Features Design Style" choices was different from the rest. The client had done it. I made that consistent and it now seems to work. I hope it stays that way. If it doesn't I'll be back. I hope this helps someone else.

Changing the feature design style fixed the problem? That's interesting.. you should be able to have independant designs on each slide. If you change it back does it break again?

I  know....it doesn't make sense to me either. But it suddenly was working. I wish I had a better answer. I'm a little concerned it may return. It appears to be an intermittent bug because it was working last night for me on two computers, but not for my client. Then this morning, it broke for both of us. Now......???? I don't dare touch it at the moment. Like I said, I might be back. Let's hope not.

I tried making all 4 of the features the same design and that didn't help. 

 

Acuitas, did you notice any issues with your drop-down navigation?  I just clicked on your link above and see the images are cascading down the page again.

 

This has definitely be intermittent.  The site has been acting really weird for about 5-6 days.  

 

Another thing that I've seen is that the WP admin bar doesn't show across the top while signed in and viewing the site when this is happening.  It shows in the Dashboard though.  When I click on one of the drop-down nav links, it makes the page-canvas container jump up the page.

 

Also, no caching plugins installed.  The only CDN would be Blubrry for the podcast but I don't know if there's any caching going on there.  It all worked fine before the update.

I've tried replicating this on my test site but no joy. I'll notify the core team and keep playing around to see if I can get the same results.

 

Be good if you could both enable debug in Pagelines>site options>advanced so we can see if you're using any of the same plugins or if anything else shows up in there we can cross reference.

 

@jeremyh78 check the wp admin bar hasn't been disabled in your wp profile in the users area.

JB.....I figured it out again. Select Feature Post Source (Optional - Defaults to Custom Post Type)

—SELECT—Feature Posts (custom post type)Use Post CategoryUse all Posts

Is NOT OPTIONAL!!!

Hi, yes I've just seen it happen on your page. http://screencast.com/t/VK6S84YBNa8a

 

I will check this with our developer team and post back, there was an error showing in the js for the navbar which could well be effecting the js for the slider. Both the features and the nav were tweaked in the latest update as far as I'm aware. I will double check and come back to you as soon as I have an answer.

Hello all,

 

When you make sure all options are selected for the slider, and nothing is left as - SELECT - in drop down fields (except at the bottom of the Features settings) does the issue continue?

 

Does everyone affected use JetPack? Does the issue disappear when Jetpack and all related plugins are deactivated?

Hi folks.....I don't have Jetpack. I don't believe the plugins I use are related to the problem. I was using Post Types Order, but removed it. My client removed her slides in panic. I put a second one back. It was working for a minute. Then I added a third and it broke again. Now I am back to only two and the CSS snip that Bob gave us for hiding the spill over. I chose to have NO text, so I didn't choose a style of text...no point in that. I tried a different transition. No help. More later. I'm still experimenting. Still broken.

Do you suppose it would affect it if the image is particularly over some height limit, might it cough a little when auto-cropping the image?

Well,  I've answered tons of posts in here saying that features do not 'auto-crop' and that it's not a good idea to expect the slider to rescale or crop images.  IE, for example will not display a cropped image. It only shows in real size.

 

IE doesn't like scaling in any way.

Well.....currently I am having a lot more luck taking it OUT of Aspect Height mode, and putting it in Fixed Height mode.   Ooops....I take that back. Hey, Bob, all I can say is that it was working great before the upgrade with seven slides of all different heights. I have to confess, deciding which settings to choose for different results is confusing. I didn't write this slider program, and what seems obvious to the creator really is not obvious to the user.

My suggestion.... make all your images the size you want them in a graphics editor, and use static height. Oddly, I have no issues with my 50 plus sliders on my site, but each has static mode slides.

      Is there a way to use the whole image in the feature slider as a link? I have searched the forum and noticed in 2011 this was posted and the reply was no. Has anything changed in 4 years?

      I'm using features on the landing page of my website. My issue is that when the page loads the feature slider will resize itself every time. I've tried to tinker around with the layout of the site (static, responsive, %, px) and with the source images (not to big, the actual size) but it doesn't help. Any tips? 
       
      Here's a video of how it looks:

      The features images are not displaying properly. The first image is blank and the second displays this script: if (document:)document.getElementbyld("divcb6b4a52").style.height = (441-440)+"px";
       
      There should only be 8 images to display, but it adds two images before that are blank and have that text I indicated.

      Hello 
       
      We've recently added the top rated Word Press translation tool WPML to our Website in order to translate our site into a second language. Everything worked like a charm, except one thing: the PlatformPro features. 
       
      Our home page was designed in English with the features slider and some text, using what is now the Select Feature-Set for Posts & 404 Pages option so that we could custom create our features. The features are tagged as default-features so that they may be selected to appear in the scroll. The thing is, we cannot translate them. 
       
      Can someone please help me figure out a work around please?
       
      Many thanks
