    Hi,
    thanks for your support.
    The reason why I have not found the setting in the dashboard is the following:

    • Native Theme Support Interaction with native theme. Options apply to all filters, but not to image sliders.
    Sorry, your theme does not seem to have native support for displaying posts from this plugin. You can add custom CSS rules on the “Style” tab to make posts better match your current theme.

    Therefore I am not able to test this setting further…

    I understand your approach by changing the default thumbnail size. Unfortunately I have already more than 750 pictures on my webpage. WordPress is creating, during upload, 9 different sizes from each picture. Also the thumbnail in 150px x 150px is included.
    If I would change the thumbnail size now, this would only affect new pictures uploaded to the webpage. Or I would have to upoad each picture again and afterwards set all links, galleries, etc.. again.
    This is not what I would like to do… Sorry…

    Therefore, I still hope, that there exists another way to advise Weaver Show Post to take another picture than the default thumbnail size.
    I could imagine something like this:
    In the Filter tab -> Define Post Display Filter Options -> Post Display -> Display posts as:
    I can choose a new option (instead of Title + Featured Image or Excerpt) which names like “Title + Wide Image” or “Excerpt + Wide Image”. At this point the ShowPost plugin knows, that not the default thumbnail size from this post shall be used but instead the wider image.
    E.g. the filename would change from: “Muskatnusskern-150×150.png” to “Muskatnusskern-300×150.png” or similar.

    Is there a possibility like this? I really don’t know if or how this is possible. I easily don’t have the knowledge for this.
    Thanks and kind regards

    I’ve still been running some of my sites on PHP 5.6, so today I thought I’d bring them all up to 7.4, the latest version my host offers. In the process I found the odd incompatible plugin which meant some sites went down, but the new WordPress feature which identifies the errant plugin made it very easy to resolve and recover.

    However, I have struck a problem with one site which I can’t resolve. When I change to PHP 7.4 the front end goes down (critical error), although I can still get in the back end. For some reason, the WordPress feature mentioned above doesn’t seem to get triggered by this error, so I had to go through the tried-and-true but laborious one-by-one deactivation/reactivation routine.

    It turns out that the problem is with the Xtreme Plus plugin – when I deactivate it, the front end is again accessible. I thought that perhaps there is an interaction between Xtreme Plus and one of my other plugins, but I use the same plugins happily with Xtreme Plus on my other sites now running on the same host with PHP 7.4. So I’m stumped. I’ve gone back to PHP 5.6 for now so the site is accessible.

    Any ideas for what I can try next? I’ve included the theme system info below.

    At some point (I think earlier this year), I discovered that I could no longer set the slider content to Show Slider as Posts.

    Doing that simply stops the display of the page. The last source HTML generated is:

    <div class</span>=”atwk-slide“><div class</span>=”slide-content slide-post“>

    If I set the slider content to Show Slider as Images, the slider works, but the links that I have attached to the images in the posts are missing, so the functionality that used to be there isn’t. I set up the slider on the home page to attract people to other pages, so losing those links is a problem.

    Here’s a page with a slider set to display the slides as images: https://camelotaz.org/

    And here’s a page with a duplicate of that slider, but set to display as posts: https://camelotaz.org/test-slider/

    I just updated to WP 5.5, but that didn’t help the problem.

    I’m running a child theme of Weaver XTreme Plus, v 4.3.8

    Weaver Xtreme Support 4.0.5

    Weaver Show Sliders 1.4.10

    Weaver Show Posts 1.5

    Edited to add: I disabled all plugins except for the Weaver ones, and that didn’t fix the problem.

    I switched to the Main theme, not my child theme, and that DID fix the problem, so now my question has morphed to: what in my child theme is likely to be causing this problem?

    Sorry, I guess you didn’t see the discussion post just before the one you’ve responded to (I probably should have edited the prior post but I didn’t get back to it before the Edit option expired).

    If you look at that prior discussion post you’ll see that I did exactly what you suggest, except that I created a series of 4 regular posts (with “posts in post” filters), not the slider posts as you suggest. Then I built a filter to capture all 4 and a slider to display them. The filter appears to be the problem here, it’s not picking up the posts themselves, but rather the  “post in post” processed result for a couple of the regular posts.

    Now I’ve also tried doing it the slider posts approach you describe. It is double the work since it means creating both a slider post and linking it to a regular post that has the ‘post in post’ filter. Even after that and creating a new filter and slider, the linked images go back to the slider posts rather than the intended ‘post-in-post’ post (way too many posts here). I added this new slider to the top of the test post so the test post now shows:

    1. the new sliderpost filter/slider shortcode (show_slider name=”catagoryfilter”),
    2. the first Weaver SliderPost shortcode (show_slider name=”catsliderpost”),
    3. the regular post filter/slider shortcode (show_slider name=”categoryslider”),
    4. the show_posts shortcode (show_posts category_name=categorylinks show=excerpt hide_bottom_info=true hide_top_info=true) that goes with the oirginal SliderPost shortcode, and
    5. a link at the very bottom that goes to one of the 4 original regular posts that display all the posts in the Museum category.

    Again, it looks like the filter may be causing the problems, maybe getting messed up by the shortcodes in the the posts it’s drawing on. The really strange thing is that the categoryslider (#3 slider and #4 show_posts, the original combo) worked just fine before we started messing with the header problem. When that got settled I noticed this problem had cropped up.

    I’m willing to give you admin privilege to the site if you want to dig in to see how I have the filters and sliders set up.

    You keep saying it is doing strange things or weird, but you are not actually saying what that is, please details

    You say the images link to their image page instead of the post, this probably means the slider is set to display as image instead of as post.

    You way want to rewind and start by explaining what it is exactly you are trying to do. If the goal is to create an image slider where each image links to a specific URL, here is a method that works that I made a while back during weaver II pro days but remains valid

    • Creating a slider of images that have links to pages other than the image file or attachment page.

    There is no way to define a link to custom URL as a setting for the image (if you go to the media library and click edit on an image, there is no such setting), therefore that setting cannot exist in a gallery (that I know of).

    And so to achieve what you want, the way to do it is either

    1. A) Use a series of regular posts in which you insert a single image with a link to a custom URL
    2. B) Use a series of slider posts in a specific group with each one also just containing a single image with a link to a custom URL.
    3. A) Basic outline principle using regular posts
    • Create a new category of posts called slider1.
    • Create posts in that category.
    • For each post, insert one image, as you insert the image, choose link to Custom URL and fill in the URL, or you can just insert the image, then switch the content editor to TEXT and change the link the code of the image tag.
    • Once you have created a number of posts all in the slider1 category, create a filter that selects all posts in that category.
    • Then create a slider that uses that filter.
    1. B) More detailed step by step using Slider Posts

    You will create your images as Slider posts (the new post type added by the plugin)

    First create a new Slider group (like links-group)

    In each post new posts created do the following.

    • Click Add media to add your image, select full size, center, custom URL, give the link
    • Select the slider group created above for that post.
    • Publish

    Once all the image post have been created all in the same slider group (ie links-group) go to ATW Post/Slider > Filter page

    Create a new filter Let us say links-filter and in that filter select the following options:

    • Hide post btitle / Hide Top & Bottom post meta info
    • In display Post as, select Full posts
    • In post types, select atw_slider_post and add it, This will show post_type=atw_slider_post in the box
    • In Slider Group, select your group (ie links-group) and add it. This will show atw_slider_group=links-group
    • Save the filter options make sure they all show up at the top.

    Then Create the slider (like links-slider)

    • In SLider Content select Show Slider as post
    • In SLider Filter select your filter name (ie links-filter)
    • Save the slider options.

    Then create a test page, and in the content area click Add Show Sliders and select your slider (is links-slider)

    Publish the page and check that your slider is working.

    If it does, it will probably have extra space you want to get rid of.

    If you have the pro version of the slider plugin, then towards the bottom of the Slider option page, you have a “Per Slider custom CSS” Box , and you can put any of the rules there to remove uneeded padding and margins

    .this-slider .slide-content .entry-content {padding-top:0px !important;}

    .this-slider .slide-content .atw_slider_post {padding-top:0px !important;margin-bottom:0px !important;}

    .this-slider .slide-post {margin-top:0px !important;margin-bottom:0px !important;}

    .this-slider .atw_slider_post img {margin-bottom:0px !important;}

    .this-slider .atw_slider_post p {margin-bottom:0px !important;}

    One thing fixed (the header question) and something else breaks or doesn’t work right. For awhile a slider using a show_posts filter was able to generate a carousel of 4 images that linked to their respective posts. But somewhere along the way to working out the parallax and random header issues it’s doing some very strange things. This test post (http://newcgaca.gorgeculture.org/testpost/) shows what what the result looks like now and briefly what I tried in creating it.

    The following provides as much detail as I can describe. I hope you can help figure out what’s going on because I’ve looked at all the posts and filters and sliders and can’t see anything that would cause what’s happening.

    • I created a “category” post (eg. http://newcgaca.gorgeculture.org/museumcat/) for each of the 4 categories I wanted to link to above.
      • In the Description for each post I put a filter shortcode (eg. show_posts category_name=museum orderby=rand posts_per_page=-1 show=full hide_bottom_info=true hide_featured_image=true hide_top_info=true ) that would display each of the posts in that category (posts in post),
      • and I put html in the Excerpt with a centered medium image that links to that category post ( Museums)
    • I created a CategorySlides Filter to pull each of those 4 category posts (eg. show_posts category_name=categorylinks show=excerpt hide_bottom_info=true hide_top_info=true)
    • I created a CategorySlider Slider to display the Filter as a carousel.
    • I added the CategorySlider shortcode to a post and it draws only 1 of the category posts and seems to draw random posts and images in place of the other three “category” posts.
    • So I also added the ShowPosts shortcode (show_posts category_name=categorylinks show=excerpt hide_bottom_info=true hide_top_info=true) to the test post and I get 2 of the category post Excerpt sections and the full category post results presumably for the other two. http://newcgaca.gorgeculture.org/testpost/
    • I finally created a Weaver Slider Post with the four category images in a gallery, then created a <em style=”font-size: 1em;”>catslider slider and added it to the top of the test post. It looks like the carousel display I’m looking for, but the images only link to their media library images, not to the category posts I want them to link to.

    I wanted to create a slider with links to a different page from each of the images in the slider. The page would then be a ‘posts in page’ format. However, pages do not appear to have a ‘defined excerpt’ that can be used in the filter for the slider.

    The only way I’ve found to do something like this is to create a post instead of a page, which allows me to create a filter that uses the ‘defined excerpt’ (a captioned image code) as the input to the slider and that image then links directly to the post. Click the Museums image in the slider on http://newcgaca.gorgeculture.org/

    Unfortunately, the post then displays with the default header (parallax defined to be 550 px tall) which pushes the post off the bottom of the screen (the subject of a separate discussion).

    So, is there a way to  define an Excerpt for a page and then create a pages filter that can be used in a slider definition?

    I’m using WordPress 5.2.2–en_GB with Theme Weaver Xtreme Version 4.3.1.5 Options: Version 38 (Subtheme: Plain White-V-38 – maybe no longer supported) and plugins Weaver Show Sliders Version 1.4.10 and Weaver Show Posts Version 1.3.16 (details below). My Sliders are all slideshows of Media Library images, and one of the Slider options (Slider Width Percentage) is now ignored. I WAS doing some non-Slider Customising and, because it worked OK before but doesn’t now, I admit that I MUST have accidentally changed something I didn’t mean to. Whatever Slider option width is set however, the slide show now displays to the full width of the container (in my case a regular web or post page). The slideshow on the home page is set to have a width of 25% (and floating right) and the one on this venue hire page is set to be 80% (centred) – but both fill the full container width.

    I’ve meticulously compared every Weaver Xtreme Theme Customising value with those on another web site I maintain which also uses the same Theme (but Options Version: 3 Subtheme: Antique Ivory-V-3 – also maybe no longer supported) and the same Plugins. The only differences I can find are in Typography and some minor tweaks to Sidebar/Widget Areas Spacing Widths and Alignments. On the working web site, percentage widths are honoured correctly. The really bizarre thing is that on the problem site, one slideshow – the one on this weddings page displays at the correct (75%) setting – although the surrounding faint border line does go to the edges (which it didn’t beforehand). N.B. You’ll see many other 100% slideshows on the site, but most are intended to be that wide.

    Please could you suggest where I might have gone wrong? I could send you screen shots of the “venue hire” (80% width) Slider Settings if they would help.

    Many thanks – Ray

    My apologies, I’m not certain why it wasn’t showing a weaver show slider since it had [show_slider name=yhlinks-slider] published in the Header Media (Layout). I deactivated the Master Slider, cleared the cache and double checked my settings to make sure it was using the Weaver Slider post of: [show_slider name=yhlinks-slider]

    Anyway, at this point I believe I’ll try the Master Slider since it’s short code did work with the Header Media (Layout) Image HTML Replacement box and my client is familiar with the Master Slider and I’m hoping will handle future site maintenance.

    That said, we would like to have the main menu appear below the Logo, Title and Tagline and above the slider. Can you tell me if that is possible and if so how to do it? I’m familiar with the three Fixed-Top Menu options but am not familiar with anything that gives the option to have the menu appear between the two areas of the header as mentioned.

    Thanks again for your help!

    I created the slider group, posts, filter, slider, added HTML to the post and short code to Header Media (Layout), and the slider appears in the header. However, I’m still having the following issues: https://www.yanawanaherbolarios.org/

    1. Text doesn’t appear over the images. The following is the code I’m using. Can you tell me what I might be doing wrong?

    2. There’s too much space below the slider. I have put all the rules in the “Per Slider custom CSS” Box at the bottom of the Sliders page but nothing ever changes. Do we just add these rules to be able to use the slider styling referenced here?:
    https://www.yanawanaherbolarios.org/wp-content/plugins/show-sliders/help/help-sliders.html#slider_styling

    3. At the end of the tutorial (https://forum.weavertheme.com/forums/topic/slider-post-links/#post-56096) it says, “If you have the pro version of the slider plugin, then towards the bottom of the Slider option page, you have a “Per Slider custom CSS” Box , and you can put any of the rules there to remove unneeded padding and margins”, then lists the rules.

    Have I missed something as I don’t have a pro version of the slider plugin unless it’s included with Xtreme Plus? If not, can you direct me to pro version of which this refers, I’ve searched for the forum and web it but can’t find anything?

    4. I first wanted to only use the tools within Xtreme Plus but this is requiring much more time than anticipated. We want to duplicate the slider we created at https://yanawanaherbolarios.com/ on https://yanawanaherbolarios.org…which only took about a hour or two the first time doing it.

    Can you say if Weaver Slider Posts is capable of producing the same end features and functionality of the slider that we created at https://yanawanaherbolarios.com?

    And from your experience do you know if Master Slider WP Pro (https://codecanyon.net/item/master-slider-wordpress-responsive-touch-slider/7467925) is compatible with the Xtreme theme?

    I’ve exported the slider from https://yanawanaherbolarios.com/ as a .json file (YanawanaHerbolarios-masterslider-10-20-2018.json) but have no idea what to do it. Would you be able to advise?

    At this point I’m more than willing to pay the $30 for a 12 month license for the Master Slider Pro, build a new slider and be done with it cause this is killing me, Smalls. ;o)

    Thanks much for your help!

    I’m starting the slider from scratch, I want to exclude the category in my posts pages so they won’t show up in my post pages and I want four images in the slider.

    So in referencing the tutorial:  https://forum.weavertheme.com/forums/topic/slider-post-links/#post-56096

    Under <u>B) More detailed step by step using Slider Posts</u> I plan to first create a new Slider group (yhlinks-group). Then, in each new posts created do the following:

    • Click Add media to add your image, select full size, center, custom URL, give the link (I presume to the page I want it to link to?)
    • Select the slider group created above for that post.
    • Publish

    To confirm, do I first create a yhlinks-group post (location: Weaver Slider Post>New Weaver Slider Post – https://www.yanawanaherbolarios.org/wp-admin/post-new.php?post_type=atw_slider_post) and then add each image separately as a new post with a different name to be a “subpost” under the yhlinks-group post or will I add all four images within the one yhlinks-group post?

    Hope I properly explained/asked that? Thanks again for your help.

    Slider post links

    Either method will work.

    The basic principle is that you need to use posts for the content of each slide.

    You can use regular posts using a specific category, but then you need to make sure you exclude that category in your posts pages (if you have any).

    Or you can use slider posts, which has the merit to be posts that wont show up in your post pages.

    Then each post will have as its content, the proper HTML to include a linked image and a text overlay. This is the HTML I gave your the principle for in my last post.

    I did follow the tutorial you provided, although I’m not entirely certain I did everything correctly and may start from scratch.

    In the meantime, can you tell me where this code you provided goes?

    Text and content to overlay on the image

    To confirm, regarding to your tutorial, are you providing two different ways of doing the same thing of Creating a slider of images that have links to pages other than the image file or attachment page (i.e. <u>A) Basic outline principle using regular posts</u> or <u>B) More detailed step by step using Slider Posts</u>)? Or is A) the first step before doing B)?

    Again my apologies for dumb questions, it’s been a while since developing from scratch in WordPress, I’ve never done a slider and am slow getting up to speed. Thanks in advance for your help and patience.

    To move the title and tagline left add the rule below in the Theme Global Custom CSS Rule box with the value you like

    .custom-logo-link {margin-right:1em;}

    To extend the slider in the header image are, go to Main Options > Header > Header Image > Align Header image and select Align Full

    WordPress does not have any way to associate a custom link to images, so if you want a slider with such images, you need to create it with post and place the image with the custom link as content of the post. Below is a post where I gave the detail procedure for that.

    here is the tutorial:

    Creating a slider of images that have links to pages other than the image file or attachment page.

    There is no way to define a link to custom URL as a setting for the image (if you go to the media library and click edit on an image, there is no such setting), therefore that setting cannot exist in a gallery (that I know of).

    And so to achieve what you want, the way to do it is either

    A) Use a series of regular posts in which you insert a single image with a link to a custom URL

    B) Use a series of slider posts in a specific group with each one also just containing a single image with a link to a custom URL.

    A) Basic outline principle using regular posts

    • Create a new category of posts called slider1.
    • Create posts in that category.
    • For each post, insert one image, as you insert the image, choose link to Custom URL and fill in the URL, or you can just insert the image, then switch the content editor to TEXT and change the link the code of the image tag.
    • Once you have created a number of posts all in the slider1 category, create a filter that selects all posts in that category.
    • Then create a slider that uses that filter.

    B) More detailed step by step using Slider Posts

    You will create your images as Slider posts (the new post type added by the plugin)

    First create a new Slider group (like links-group)

    In each post new posts created do the following.

    • Click Add media to add your image, select full size, center, custom URL, give the link
    • Select the slider group created above for that post.
    • Publish

    Once all the image post have been created all in the same slider group (ie links-group) go to ATW Post/Slider > Filter page

    Create a new filter Let us say links-filter and in that filter select the following options:

    • Hide post title / Hide Top & Bottom post meta info
    • In display Post as, select Full posts
    • In post types, select atw_slider_post and add it, This will show post_type=atw_slider_post in the box
    • In Slider Group, select your group (ie links-group) and add it. This will show atw_slider_group=links-group
    • Save the filter options make sure they all show up at the top.

    Then Create the slider (like links-slider)

    • In Slider Content select Show Slider as post
    • In Slider Filter select your filter name (ie links-filter)
    • Save the slider options.

    Then create a test page, and in the content area click Add Show Sliders and select your slider (is links-slider)

    Publish the page and check that your slider is working.

    If it does, it will probably have extra space you want to get rid of.

    If you have the pro version of the slider plugin, then towards the bottom of the Slider option page, you have a “Per Slider custom CSS” Box , and you can put any of the rules there to remove unneeded padding and margins

    .this-slider .slide-content .entry-content {padding-top:0px !important;}

    .this-slider .slide-content .atw_slider_post {padding-top:0px !important;margin-bottom:0px !important;}

    .this-slider .slide-post {margin-top:0px !important;margin-bottom:0px !important;}

    .this-slider .atw_slider_post img {margin-bottom:0px !important;}

    .this-slider .atw_slider_post p {margin-bottom:0px !important;}
