First I have to tell you how much i LOVE the Graphene template. I am a web designer and use it almost exclusively for most of the websites I design, and have made numerous tweaks to the template and style sheets.
Up until recently I have never had an issue with the slider or any other problems when modifying the style sheets and the php files.
However, recently I have been having trouble with the slider, and I believe I have isolated the issue to the footer php (I have deleted and recreated wordpress templates and I have disabled and tested all the plug ins). What is really strange is that when creating a new wordpress Graphene website I can make an initial tweak to the footer file without a problem, but if I return to make any further changes to the footer that is when the slider disappears. Also perplexing, if I even open the footer and do not make changes, it still effects the slider. I have even tried making a back up file, but that does not work either. PLEASE HELP!
A current website I am working on is http://get-rural.net/exede/
I have the slider disabled for now, but can turn it on for your review. If we cannot fix it, I am making a landing page at http://get-rural.net in which I can place the slider there, but I would prefer to have the slider on the main webpage http://get-rural.net/exede
Thanks for your assistance and thank you again for the great template!
