Morning campers. I have a request for assistance. It’s to do with my oik plugin (oik).
Hope you can help.
slideshow should go here
Ooh look – it’s working. Thanks to ben huson for proving the old adage
given enough eyes every problem is shallow
See below for the solution.
Use your preferred browser to inspect the HTML that’s been generated. You should see 6 images in a hidden list and some jquery code to do the cycling. But there’s something wrong and it doesn’t work!
problem determination performed so far
Is the problem reproducable?
Yes, but only on this site. When I deactivate my oik-bw-trace or oik base plugin then the slideshow cycles properly.
Can you reproduce it locally?
No? It works fine on my local (Windows) install
Can you reproduce it on other Linux installs?
No. It works fine on other sites – see http://twenty-tens.co.uk/sgp-oik
Have you compared working and non-working pages?
Yes. Using Google chrome I viewed source and saved the HTML then compared using BeyondCompare.
There were a couple of differences that didn’t make sense. Some of the XHTML was not properly formed. bad ending tags…
we’ll come back to this later.
No, I don’t know how to.
Are versions the same on different sites?
Yes. WordPress 3.2.1, oik v0.7, slideshow gallery pro v 1.4.1 and my theme is bwdesign0715.
Have you deactivated other plugins?
I don’t want to fiddle too much with Bobbing Widewebdesign.com so instead I installed the same plugins on another site and hoped it would wrong. Post Scriptum: It still works on the other site with the same set of plugins.
Why are your links so dim?
and did you know you’ve got a broken image in the right sidebar and two images which seem a bit too big.
Yes, thanks. There are many more fobs and bongs to fix.
fob bong oik – WTF?
For more information on fob, bong and hide see www.fobbonghide.com
For more information on oik see oik
Does it work on a page?
No. See this message duplicated on a single page
What plugins are activated?
have you uninstalled and reinstalled?
Yes, it didn’t make any difference.
Are there any rogue files?
ie. Are there files that are not part of the plugins that are somehow intercepting the processing.
No. It’s happened before but not this time.
Is the HTML good?
When we looked at the generated HTML again we saw some jQuery code that appeared to be embedded into a menu item… nowhere near the code that wasn’t working. Then Ben noted that I’d included the shortcode in a page title. oops!
USER ERROR!! problem solved.
