Easy Slider, WordPress, FF and IE Problem

  • # October 26, 2009 at 8:28 pm

    Hi

    So I’m working on a redesign of my site but have a problem with easy slider not working in FF and IE. The site can be viewed at http://wordpress.barrywalsh-portfolio.com

    I know there’s two copies of jquery loading on the page, one is for the thickbox plugin and the other for easy slider, if I get rid of one of them easy slider stops workng on Chrome and Safari.

    If any one has any ideas why easy slider isn’t working in FF and IE on the site let me know please!

    Cheers!

    it may be that the two are conflicting with each other. If you remove thickbox and the slider starts working, then you will know for sure. Try replacing thickbox with shadowbox.

    I know this will work with sliders, at least it does with coda slider

    Cheers, I tried deactivating all of my wordpress plugins but that didn’t make a difference. I’ve started using shadow box instead though because I think it looks nicer.

    I’ve no idea now why it’s not working.. especially in FF.

    deactivating the plugins alone won’t work. You must remove the call to the jquery code in the header section of your site. What I suggest you do is activate all plugins you had, then just remove the jquery call in the header one by one till you see what it is that is stopping the slider from working

    Cool cheers, I tried what you suggested but still no joy, I really don’t understand why it happened, the last plug in I installed was Flickr Gallery so I thought that might be causing the problem but I deleted it completely but no luck there either (as well as all the other plugins ins one by one reinstalling the last one I deleted). I wish I knew when exactly it stopped working in FF and IE.

    Oooooh jaysis, when I was validating the other day I had to edit a part of the head section and I just reviewed it and noticed that I was missing a closing script tag! That was driving me mad and I can’t believe I didn’t notice that after how many times I went over the head of the document! Ah well all sorted now anyway!
