Quickslider - 'image upload failed' after a few slides, have to keep saving

Recommended Posts

The quickslider works fine if you are using 4/5 slides but I need 20 and I find that you have to save after uploading every image otherwise it processes one and then the next has the error 'image upload failed'.  Is this is a sign that the database is getting a bit choked saving the slides? Each one is 150/220k? 

 

Is there a suggested limit of slides for this section? I admit I haven't used that many before but it saves me using a third party plugin to get the same effect.

Hi,

As far as I am aware there is no limit on the amount of slides you can have. However, most websites that use a slider of some sorts, usually contain no more than 4-8 slides at most. This is due to the fact that slides usually contain a large image.

 

I haven't tested this myself, so how are you uploading the images, are you uploading them via the Upload Button or have you added these images to the Media Library and then selected them in the QuickSlider options ?

Hi

These aren't large images in this case as the slider is in a 6 column section and I've optimised in PS etc. I'm using the upload button, my media uploader is still scrambled which some others have reported. The client has insisted I use their current host (Godaddy) which I've never used before but I'm sure you'll say is crap! (it does say deluxe hosting whatever that means...) I'm using DMS on top of their existing WP install which I updated to the latest version and removed all old plugins etc. 

 

 

...just to update - it appears that you have to mnually click the save button after uploading every new side image.

Also just continuing with this - it appears that DMS loads every slide causing some delay to page loading times - is there a way to correct this?

Of course its going to load every slide, why wouldn't it ? This is what I was mentioning about most sites not having large amounts of slides in their sliders.

 

Also, I have just created a slider with 20 slides using images and have no issues with the slider, failing to upload them.

Must have been issues with the server response times during upload. Since the slider is the best option at the moment you can close this thread, I might consider switching to a 3rd party plugin at some point.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      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.

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?
