Carousel not showing with NextGen

Recommended Posts


For the site https://marshallsirishpub.com I am running

Wordpress 4.9.4
Pagelines base theme 1.0.2
Pagelines Framework 2.5.0

Specific page not working properly is https://marshallsirishpub.com/photo-gallery/

I am using NextGen gallery which is activated and showing the pictures in the gallery.  Page was edited to add the carousel and points to the NextGen gallery.  Meta settings and page were both saved.

When I'm logged into Wordpress I see the following error at the top of the page:


The site was hacked last month and it seems the hacker changed some things on the site, but I can't figure out what was changed to make the Carousel not show on the page.

NextGen is an external plugin so I can not tell you to much about it, in PageLines you have Tangram Carousel, which works really nice.
Also, you still have Mixed content errors in the console,
Maybe considering rebuild the website on PL5 is a good idea.

Yes I am aware NextGen is an external plugin.  I emailed them about the issue.  Their reply was as follows:

NextGen does not have anything called a "Carousel" in our plugin.  You would need to contact the developer of the "Carousel" to fix this.  To ensure our plugin is working as designed please create a gallery only using our plugin.  If that works then it is an issue with the developer of the "Carousel"

If you go to the following URL https://marshallsirishpub.com/pub1/ You will noticed I created a page with the NextGen plugin and it's working correctly.  The carousel is from Pagelines.  So this seems to be an issue with Pagelines Carousel not NextGen.  I will delete that page I created once you see it which does show NextGen working. Where do I find the Tangram Carousel you mentioned?

As for mixed content I ran a test at whynopadlock.com for https://marshallsirishpub.com and it does not detect any mixed content.  You can test that on your end as well.  All of the pages on the site have a padlock. What console are you referring to?

      The Grams section of Platform 5, is lacking lots of important features, that DMS multigram was having, there is no space for another user ID asie the default user, that was one of the strongest point of multigrams, because the Hashtag option cannot capture everyone, multiple User ID is the default standard for Instagram,  Also there is no carousel or slide on this one, it means now that if you want to display 18 pictures in one page all will be visible at once thats not good engineering.
      My appeal to the Pagelines Team, guys please let the next update have all the DMS Multigrams features that is missing on Platform 5 Grams, that will bring it to its glory...

      Hi Guys, 
      I noticed this a while back but thought it happened back when there was security issues with the wordpress plugin revolution slider and thats why they disappeared, but thinking i was wrong now as mine are the DMS versions.
      Basically, my front end editor is missing the icons for;
      • Rev Slider
      • Revolution Slider
      • Quick Slider

      What i've also noticed is a difference in how the menu tabs on the left hand side of the front end editor have changed. They were not styled like this before. Its like the css is off or something isnt quite right with the install somehow, somewhere.
      Even though the icons are missing for the slider sections. I can still drag them onto my pages and configure them, to a certain degree anyway.
      I tried adding the revolution slider to a page yesterday. But it wasnt responding to the way i had configured it. I choose a slide set for it to use and it took no notice. It just used every slide and every caption regardless.
      Leaving the revolution slider behind i took a look at the rev slider. Adding the correct images is fine. But i don't get any captions showing when i set them? Tried a few different options but nothing.
      Id like to know if my pagelines DMS 2 install is corrupt in anyway? Does anyone else's front end editor look the same as mine? Is anyone else missing the icons for the sliders and have no padding-right for the menu items?
      Is anyone using any of the sliders at the moment without issues?
      Im using the child theme 'Sophistique" which uses the revolution slider on the homepage. It works fine and its configured the way i want it using thh slide sets ive choosen so dont understand why it would be working inside the website.
      Any advice or help is appreciated. Thank for your time guys. Ben

      I have DMS2 installed and my site is being served over HTTPS. However, I am getting an error that a placeholder image for Quick Carousel (which is not a being used on any of my pages) is being served over http://
      Mixed Content: The page at 'https://harqen.com/'was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image 'http://placehold.it/45x45/f0f0f0/ccc'. This content should also be served over HTTPS.
      How can I remove this?
      Found it. It was the Recent Posts Widget that was calling this little devil. I have removed the reference and all is well in SSL land.

      It took me a long time to figure this out so I thought I'd share my experience. Maybe someone can verify or benefit.
      NextGen is a popular gallery plugin. With the Plus or Pro versions, which have features you need, there is a second plugin called NextGen Pro.
      With NextGen Pro activated, you can't add DMS sections, the DMS2 GUI just doesn't let you drag them. However, you can work with the sections that are already on the page.
      With NextGen Pro DE-activated, its functionality breaks but you can add sections (e.g., ones containing the galleries you're creating). 
      Bottom line, workflow is
      - leave the regular NextGen plugin activated
      - deactivate the NextGen Pro plugin to add DMS2 sections
      - reactivate the NextGen Pro plugin to configure your galleries and publish the site
      Hope this helps.

      I just updated to the new theme and I am now getting errors on my HTTPS site that the quick carousel is trying to deliver content through HTTP.
      Mixed Content: The page at 'https://harqen.com/'was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure script 'http://harqen.com/wp-content/themes/dms/sections/quickcarousel/caroufredsel.js?ver=98ab90'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.
      Can you please help me correct this issue?
