Content Slider and WordPress

  • # July 5, 2009 at 3:37 pm

    I am switching over a site from html to wordpress and having a problem with the http://css-tricks.com/creating-a-slick-auto-playing-featured-content-slider/ content slider. I can get it to all line up but the sliding part doesn’t work. The white arrow will go across the screen but it won’t slide. I have been working on this for a week and am at my wits end to try and get this working. The site is http://baystatewrestling.keithkeirstead.com/home/ Can anybody take a look and tell me what Im doing wrong? Thanks!

    To begin with you are calling two different versions of jQuery in your document head which isn’t helping matters.

    Code:

    I would also give .slider-wrap a specific width as Chris has done in the demo, and it’s a good idea to crop and resize your images so they are all the same size and not rely on the browser to try and make sense of all those different dimensions.

    You also seem to have another jQuery slider on the page that may be causing a conflict, it’s certainly not needed on that page.

    And validate your markup, 41 errors on the page http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1 … %2Fhome%2F
