Does the slider work with custom permalinks?
changed the page ID to a number
The page ID is a number, so I’m not sure what you mean here. Where are you getting the page ID’s of the new pages from?
Right now I don’t have those pages in the “show specific posts/pages” box.
Well, sometimes it’s hard to see what’s going on if you’ve disabled the feature in question. So I tried changing the slider options on my test blog to match yours, and then added another page. It works for me, so either you have the ID numbers wrong (not likely) or it could be some sort of plugin conflict. The slider is based on jQuery, and it appears you have a couple of other jQuery things going on. So you might want to disable those, add the page ID’s back in, and see what happens.
Anyway, kind of a long-winded description…sorry about that!
Actually, more information is better than just “it doesn’t work anymore…please fix it for me immediately.” Telling us what you’ve tried and hasn’t worked so far gives us a place to put our feet, so I appreciate the fact that you have taken the time to try out various things and document them. And you actually include links! Thank you! (I actually wrote a post about this on my blog, but people get their knickers in a twist when I recommend they read it.)
A lot of slider problems are either jQuery-based plugin conflicts or incorrect permalinks. Your permalinks look good, so it’s most likely the latter. I only wish I could be a bit more specific. But keep trying and keep us updated; we’ll get this sorted out, I’m sure.
Thanks Ken. Yeah; I’ve been a computer geek for the last 22 years and own my own consulting practice, so I understand the value of a good description of a problem. 🙂
Well, you hit the nail on the head without knowing it! I was getting the page ID mixed up with the permalink. Sheesh! I was thinking “Why does wordpress make it so hard to find the page ID?”, and then realized that it isn’t hard at all…just need to hover over the link, and look at the number in the browser’s status bar. Viola!
I used those numbers, and now the slider works as expected. *sigh* Guess the coffee hadn’t quite kicked in yet. 🙂
So, this thread can be closed, and I’ve marked it as such. Thanks again, Ken; your response was super quick and exactly what I needed!

Yep, this has happened to me many times — I think I know something, and then I overlook just one little thing that throws everything off. Glad we got it sorted out!
Yep… like those elusive “pisels”, right?!
BTW, my plugin has an option to show a new column on posts/pages which will list the ID.
I know there are many others out there… but it’s worth mentioning.
