Slider is suddenly not working!

    I upgraded to WP 3.5 and I am not sure if that messed with the slider or if there is something else going on. I have not touched the slider for well over a month, so for it to suddenly quit working out of the blue is a bit frustrating. I have disabled, renabled, uploaded new feature items, etc. NOTHING. Anyone have an idea as to what caused this and how to fix? The website looks horrible now. 🙁

    It didn’t suddenly quit working out of the blue, it is probably related to your recent upgrade. Did you upgrade anything else when you upgraded WP?

    Also, what do you mean when you say it “quit working”? There are a wide range of possible behaviors possible here.

    Seems like you have disabled the slider. Enable it again so that we can take a look.

    OK I have re-enabled it. But as it is a live site, I want to disable it again before the evening is over if I can’t fix it. Thanks.

    Ah.. you’re using a very old version of the theme (v1.5.1), which is probably why the slider is not working. I remember that we had to update the script code for the slider some versions ago to get it to work with updated jQuery versions that come with newer versions of WordPress.

    Any reason for not updating the theme?

    my only reason would be that i am just learning to use wordpress and this is a live site… i wasnt sure what the update would do and if i would have to fix the look of things. if its simply a code update i can go ahead and do it. but not before bed. LOL

    Then I would recommend setting up a development site where you can test out updates before deploying them on the live site. You can set up a subdomain (something like dev.belairmddentist.com), then duplicate your production site there, and test away.
