Duplicate first/last posts in slider & latest posts
Since upgrading to 3.3, the slider duplicates slides/posts. Also, latest posts at the bottom of the page are duplicated. Only the first & last post are the same.
Slider: Slider Options is set to: Show latest posts, number set to: 15 posts. The first slide image and post content is the same as the last slide image and post content. The most recent post is missing completely. The second through 15th slides/posts are correct.
Current posts at the bottom of the page: Home Page Panes, Type of content is set to: Latest posts, number set to: 2. This looks like the same problem as the slider. When set to 4, the first and last displayed are the same. Number 2 through 4 are correct. The most recent post is missing.
I determined that the Wishlist Member plugin is the culprit. Deactivating the plugin fixes the problem. The question is why? Has anyone else had this problem?
Graphene theme version: 1.5.6.

Wow. Excellent use of the Graphene Theme!! (Another we should add to our “Best Theme Customizations” list… (Oh wait, we still don’t have that yet…)).
Ummmm, I honestly have zero experience with the Wishlist Member Plugin. Is the plugin compatible with wordpress 3.3? When was the last update made to the plugin?
It’s possible this could be a jquery conflict, as the slider is primarily jquery, but that doesn’t explain the duplicated posts. However, you mention it’s the same behavior as the slider… so, maybe it is??
I won’t take credit for the design of the site 🙂 The owner wants it that way.
As for the problem at hand, it’s a bit perplexing because I don’t think Wishlist is loading any jquery. But, when I deactivate Wishlist the problem disappears.
WordPress is current, Wishlist is current and the theme is current. I would think that someone else is having this problem if Wishlist and Graphene aren’t playing nice with each other.

Is WishList a paid plugin? Perhaps they might have some experience with the same issues you are having? I wish I could be of more help. Maybe other members will chime in eventually.
Wishlist is a premium plugin. But, I think they’ll say it’s a problem with the theme. Since the site is live and a membership site I can’t just play around with it to try different possibilities.
What file contains the code for the slider?

What is Wishlist for? What does it do? I can’t find it in the WordPress plugin repository (plugins that have been checked for malicious code and approved by the WP team).
Wishlist is a premium plugin. But, I think they’ll say it’s a problem with the theme.
I’m afraid this is probably the case, and all too true of “premium” (i.e., paid) plugins — the problem is never with their code. It gives me a headache just thinking of working with them.
The code for the slider is, I believe, part of the jQuery pack that comes with Graphene.
Wishlist Member is a membership plugin. It’s widely used and well supported.
I found the code for the slider in functions.php. I don’t see anything that would cause this problem. I tried a couple of mod’s without success.
I think I’ll have to recommend to the client that we put the site into maintenance mode so I can try another theme with a slider to see if it’s just Graphene. I could also try more mod’s to the slider code. There are filters being applied which I haven’t figure out yet.
Luckily, I was contacted by someone who is experiencing the same problem but with a different theme. It appears that Wishlist Member is the culprit. The owner of the site said that deactivating Wishlist fixed his problem.
Take a look at the slider on the page. The first and last post are duplicated. Here’s the link: http://nativefrenchspeech.com/?page_id=526 . The site is using a WooThemes theme.
I submitted a trouble ticket to Wishlist.
