    scheint ein gutes plugin zu sein, allerdings frage ich mich ob dieses plugin evtl. unter localhost (sprich lokaler webserver) die pfeile nicht zeigt die zum vor oder zurück blättern sind , also eps1.png und eps1.png. weil ich sehe die leider nicht.

    ansonsten geiles plugin, sieht auch nach einem no brainer aus.

    achja, falls ihr mal autorotation in planung haben solltet, schonmal vielen vielen dank 🙂

    Tolles Plugin.
    Ich hab nur ein Problem: Auf der Seite wo ich den Slider einbinde wird darunter nicht mehr der Text dieser Seite angezeigt, sondern eine Auflistung der Artikel.
    Irgendwie kann ich bloß nicht recht erkennen, wodurch das hervorgerufen wird.

    @alle mit dem Problem der nicht angezeigten Scrollpfeile: Hatte ich zuerst auch, bis ich dann in Firebug folgende Fehlermeldung gesehen hab “$ is not a function” …
    Nach etwas googlen hab ich dann das hier gefunden.
    Das ersetzen von allen $(…) durch jQuery(…) in der slider.js hat dann das Problem bei mir gelöst.

  4. Sven sagt:

    Hm, da wurde wohl ein Teil des Codes ausgefiltert. Ok, noch ein Versuch: Folgendes wurde von mir ersetzt „$temp_query = $wp_query; query_posts(‚cat=‘ . get_option(’slider-id‘) . ‚&showposts=‘ . get_option(’slider-items‘)); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); “ durch „$featuredPosts = new WP_Query();
    $featuredPosts->query(‚cat=‘ . get_option(’slider-id‘) . ‚&showposts=‘ . get_option(’slider-items‘));

    if($featuredPosts->have_posts()): while ($featuredPosts->have_posts()) : $featuredPosts->the_post();“

    Falls hier die Codeschnipsel wieder nicht durchkommen: Statt dem Aufruf von query_posts muß eine neue WP_Query kreiert werden, dann funktioniert auch der normale Loop auf Seiten mit der Slideshow.

    hi. nice plugin. i install on mimbo 3.0 theme but the arrows doesnt aappear. is doesnt works. i need to edit the width to 900px, and less the other itens in css, but the arrows not showing. whats worng? tks.

  6. seb sagt:


    good works, looks pretty cool, although I couldn’t get it to work in the first place. Maybe this might help anyone get it working, too:

    First, I received an error message saying:

    $(“) is null…
    (at line 57 in slider.js)

    I checked all path definitions and all were working well.
    Having a look to the jquery doc pointed out, that I may need to use XHTML-valid syntax ( so I tried replacing with


    …adding a slash before the closing tag. But it still ain’t working (same error message).

    Then, I replaced the $(..)-function by jQuery(..) for both lines, 57 and 58, which solved my problem.

    I’m a little confused now, since all other $(..)-functions statements seem to work well, except those I replaced.

  7. Luca sagt:

    Nice plugin! I have a little problem with comments on my wp: if I put the code between the header and the page my post-page won’t open.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance!

    Error after installing

    What is wrong?

  9. admin sagt:

    You have a double Slash before wp-content.

  10. Tanja sagt:


    Thanks for the plugin, I’m missing the arrows (eps) left and right when I install (offline version). I get the #slider box with content (1 entry) but no navigation to scroll through them. Do you have a suggestion?


  11. Riley sagt:

    Great plugin, though I have a problem with one thing… when I add the slider to the top of the page, the slider works great but it fills the page below with content from posts (multiple posts one after the other)… how do i get rid of that?

  12. Solution for non-showing-up navigation arrows! You have to add in your header link to jquery-1.2.6.min.js do not insert other versions, download this one and apply it to your header, then the buttons will show up!

  13. cooogee sagt:

    @Marko Obradovic > please explain more in detail what to add where (pls provide the exact code). My navigation isn’t showing either. Thank you!!

  14. David Jon sagt:

    Hey first off! I really love this plugin. So thanks alot for making it. However if I insert the code in to my header, the slider works great, but i cant go to any single article pages. I only get a list of all the items. And sometimes the arrows dont show. I have the sam e issue with the normal pages, category pages seem to be displayed fine. Any ideas how to fix it?!
    Thanks alot

  15. Carlos E sagt:

    Weird issue with the arrows not showing, should not happen.

    @cooogee and anyone with the same problem, like Marko Obradovic said, download jquery-1.2.6.min.js and paste in your header the following:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/wp-content/plugins/wp-featured-content-slider/scripts/jquery-1.2.6.min.js“>

    You’ll notice i put the jquery file in the same folder as the plugin, is just better for me but it can go anywhere else.

    Other than that, great plugin.

    This works in WP 2.9.1

  16. Carlos E sagt:

    Aaah, this stripped my code, in my previous comment the closing script tag is missing at the end.

  17. Wazomba sagt:

    Hello ! Nice plugin !! I modded it to change dimensions and everything is ok. But I’m trying now to add autoscroll. can somebody help to do so ???

  18. Wazomba sagt:

    I’m posting again because of the very nice autoscrolling logo at the bottom of this page. If it’s a plugin, how do you call it for download, please ?

  19. dian sagt:

  20. Aaron sagt:

    great plugin.

    Does anyone know how to stop the posts from showing up in the content div of the page that the slider is on?
    Right now it’s showing up in both the slider and below it in the main content.


  21. Guen M sagt:

    Yeah, a good one – thank you. I too need help to make it autoscroll.

    I’d appreciate any help.

  23. Paul sagt:

    I have installed the plugin but it does not show images. Any help?

  24. admin sagt:

    Did you add the custom field to your post?

  25. Paul sagt:

    Yes, I used the custom field „Thumbnail“. All that appears is a small red box. I have the plugin up on my site now if you need to see. Thanks.
