Hope someone can help because I am going mad! 🙂
I am trying to fix a Gallery Slider that shows our last 6 posts. It shows posts, in 2 lots of 3, but when the most recent post is always missing and the oldest post of the 6 is duplicated, so it shows up as both the oldest AND the latest.
I have tried both the shortcode generator and the full Add Post / Slide Set Gallery options but both act the same way. When I was testing I changed the limit on posts so it would just return 1 post, the latest and then it DID return the most recent post. But as soon as I changed the limit to 2 I got the second most recent post (i.e. the oldest of the 2 posts) twice.
Hope that makes sense and someone can help, I can send a URL if you think it would help.
Thanks for replying to this, your suggestion was helpful (although I've only recently got around to trying out your solution).
I disabled the plug-ins one at a time and eventually found that the plug-in connected to the problem is called Wishlist Member. Unfortunately it's a key plugin for my site so I can't just get rid of it. I currenty still have the plugin enabled, which means the problem with the Gallery slider is visible on my site. I wondered if you would be able to take a quick look and see if you can see any obvious problem with it?
The grid view displays correctly. If you see this page the top 3 images are the images that I want to show up on the home page Gallery slider. http://www.loveplaywork.com/category/blog/
However, on the homepage (http://www.loveplaywork.com/) if you scroll down to Recent Posts you will see that the first image is different, it is in fact the oldest post of the 9 posts selected.
I have tried upgrading the theme to 2.8.8 but that did not help, I have reverted back to 2.8.7 for now as I had made a couple of style customisations.
I compared the page source on the homepage with the plugin enabled and disabled and the only difference I could spot was that when the Wishlist plugin is enabled there are a couple of (blank) CSS styles added to the header.
Hope you can help, or suggest what I can try next, I don't have a lot of experience with this sort of thing,
Thanks Andy, much appreciated.
The slider is on the homepage (http://www.loveplaywork.com/) at the bottom of the screen under Latest Blog Posts (apologies if I've been calling it a slider and it's actually something else). If you look at the first image you see ("Do you need to stop apologising…") and then use the arrow to scroll left, then the image on the right is the same ("Do you need to stop apologising"). This is because that image/post is currently showing up as both blog post 1 and 9 (the limit is set at 9).
See the grid view on the blog page () that displays the same posts but correctly has the latest blog post as the first image ("The results are in…")
Thanks, hope you can help, thanks for trying,
Sorry, grid view is http://www.loveplaywork.com/category/blog/
Again I haven't had any reports of this and from what I've tested I've not seen any issues. I must set some time aside to thoroughly test it. I've bookmarked this and will test again over the next couple of days.
If you could test in the other galleries that would be great. Thanks!
Thanks for getting back to me, I have done some testing and all post/ picture galleries (stage, group slider, grid gallery, accordian gallery on shortcode and slide set gallery) are affected. Basically the latest post is missing, while the oldest post is shown as the newest as well as the oldest. The same thing happens when using the recent posts short code.
You can see the full list of posts here http://www.loveplaywork.com/category/blog/ (in date order) while at the bottom of this page http://www.loveplaywork.com/ you can see the oldest blog (of the 9 shown) is shown as the first and last post.
let me know if you need any further information,
