    This is a little complicated to explain, but I’ve built to test pages to try to show you what I’m talking about.

    I’m using Weaver Xtreme Pro, and trying to build modular pages. I’m finding that if I include a slider element within a post, it stops any subsequent posts appearing. I’m using “page with posts” and categories to select which posts I want in the modules.

    Page 1) – http://www.dolphinhouselaos.com/front-test-1/
    This has three modules (posts) – the repeated text at the top
    Three thumbnails
    A parallax section

    This page works perfectly, but of course does not include a slider

    Page 2) – http://www.dolphinhouselaos.com/front-test-2/
    This has four modules – the repeated text at the top
    A section with a slider
    Three thumbnails
    A parallax section

    The slider section post in Page 2) only has this as its content:
    [show_slider name=front-sample-gallery]

    As you can see, Page 2) shows the repeated text and the slider, but the two sections after it (3 thumbs and parallax) are missing.

    I’ve tried all combinations I can think of, but it seems if I include a slider section in a post, it stops further posts appearing. I’ve tried different sliders too with the same result. I’ve also de-activated all plugins apart from the weaver ones, and tried it on both Firefox and IE – no difference.

    I’d appreciate any help …

    Thanks

    Can you simplify the posts to only include some text and not html or images, except for the slider.
    The first thing to eliminate is the risk for some bad HTML to break the layout.
    Also eliminate the parallax section and just make it a simple text post and let see if that works,
    If it does just add a parallax section and test again, and so on

    OK done that and still the same.

    Page 1) is now two pieces of text
    Page 2) is text, slider, text

    Still doesn’t show the second text box

    Maybe worth noting in sorting this out. I turned ON the post titles, top and bottom info lines for all the relevant posts in this exercise. You can see the two text posts show their info perfectly. The slider post is not showing its bottom info line.

    The standalone http://www.dolphinhouselaos.com/front-028/ (slider post) DOES show the bottom info line. It’s only getting lost on the page-with-posts.

    Don’t know if this is relevant, but thought I’d point it out.

    I’ll try to reproduce it tomorrow (it is late where I am), and if I can, I will post a report for weaver.
    If you still have time to test, try to display the posts using a show post shortcode inside a default page to see if it makes a difference

    There are two things showing up in the source of the post page with the problem.
    After the slider, there is an empty post-content div and an empty sitewide bottom widget area.
    Are you using these at all in this page or somewhere else?

    I’m neither using the bottom widgets nor anything I can thing of that’s post-content. I AM using post-header for the front page slider, and fixed-browser-top for the menu, but that’s all the advanced sections I’m using. I’m not using any widgets at all.

    I made a page http://www.dolphinhouselaos.com/front-test-3/ with the content [show_posts filter=test-filter] Test filter picks up posts with a category of Front 2. This is working fine. APART from when I’m logged in, there is an edit button under post Front 028 and again there is no bottom post info line. The edit button takes you to edit the page, rather than just the post as all the other ones do. If we can’t solve this, I can use a show_posts for now, but I’d rather get it sorted!

    I’ve just set up an identical situation on a different site. http://www.rainbowwebsitedesign.com/website-design/test/ is a “page-with-posts”

    Posts 1 and 3 are plain text. Post 2 is a slider – [show_slider name=test-slider]
    The test slider picks up a weaver slider post – with a gallery [gallery ids="1473,1471,1455"]

    Again, the third post, (just plain text) fails to show.

    I can reproduce this here, I hope you can too.

    “APART from when I’m logged in, there is an edit button ” this is normal WordPress behavior, when you are logged in you have edit button on the page, there is an option somewhere to disable that I think, and no one else sees them.

    You answered another question I had, which was to know if your slider was using a filter and posts, or just using a post slider with a WordPress gallery in it for the images?

    Because if it is using posts, that could be the cause of the issue. Putting posts inside a post is a source of problem for WordPress that can cause all sorts of problems. It may also screw up the number of post per page as the slider posts may be counted as posts in the page.

    Given you are using a Post slider with a gallery it should be less of an issue.

    Will test today, and post back

    “”APART from when I’m logged in, there is an edit button ” this is
    normal WordPress behavior, when you are logged in you have edit button
    on the page, there is an option somewhere to disable that I think, and

    In the “Page with posts” each individual post has its own edit button. This allows you to edit that specific post. However the slider post has an edit button which edits the page, rather than the post. Also the bottom info line is missing. This is the case even when using show posts.

    It’s odd behaviour and maybe a little specialised, but it has stopped me using the page with posts option for the website. Instead (thanks slider for the tip) I’m using a show posts with a post filter. That almost works! and is good enough for now.

    Sorry, it took me a while to get to this…
    1) The Edit button when logged in is added by WordPress on posts, I dont know / believe if it can do it on posts that are inside a weaver slider, but @weaver can confirm
    2) @Weaver, I have confirmed what looks like a BUG.
    If you place a weaver slider in a post (basic image slider using a WP galleruy in a post slider), When displaying the posts with a page with posts, any post after the one with the slider will not show.
    ALSO, the bottom post info line of the post with the slider is not showing either
    Example:
    3 posts: post-1 just text; post-2 an image slider; post-3 just text
    Page with posts set to display all three posts.
    Only posts 1 and 2 will shows.
    The bottom post info line of post 2 is missing

    If it is, hopefully the solution provided by the lightbox developer will allow you to fix both.
