Revolution Slider Update Message from Google WMT

Recommended Posts

jpdoty

I was wondering what the best approach for updating my Revolution Slider would be, as I received the attached message about security holes in revslider 3.0 from Google.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration!

 

My site URL is, hipsterwave.com.

 

The page with a current issue is hipsterwave.com/about. Could switching to the quickslider resolve this issue?

 

Thanks again.

Do you have Rev Slider installed or are you using the built-in DMS version?

The built-in DMS version.

DMS does not use the Slider Revolution plugin.

What did Google tell you exactly?

Be interesting to hear back from Google as to what they used to flag up this site. He was using the revslider section as far as i can gather. The section is nothing like the Revolution Slider that had the vulnerabilities, in fact revslider is simply a jQuery plugin, not the full on WordPress plugin.

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.
