        Question: How do you change the order of slides in a set?

    • Anonymous
  • WOW!

    This is probably one of the best additions to the pagelines store. Great job and a great product. However, I am having trouble viewing it on IE. It works fine on Firefox and Chrome. But it’s not visible on IE. Again, a great product. As soon as I hear about the IE question I’m going to be purchasing.

      Hi and thanks.

      Can you please tell me the IE version you are using?

      I tested the section with IE7, IE8 and IE9 and i can see it working.

      • WOW

        This is what I see on my screen. I’m using IE 9 version 9.08.1102 64 bit. Maybe it’s something with my comp?

    Is the slider able to make the text background square with various font sizes in them?

    • http://twitter.com/Tmeister Enrique Chavez

      Hi QR.

      For color and font size you can use the WP Editor to change it when you add a caption. about the square background you need to use a little CSS

      .caption {
      border-radius: 0 !important;
      }

  • QR

    What’s the easiest way to make this a feature slider? We tend to have 5-10 post per day and usually pick a few to be featured on the main page. Is there an easy way to add a post rather than going through all the steps of adding feature?

  • Sean

    I’m sure that I’m missing the obvious, but I’m not able to see where you determine the order of the slides. Please advise. Thanks!

    • Anonymous

      Hi Sean,

      For re-order custom post types, Pagelines recommended the “Post Types Order” plugin. with this plugin you can re-order any type of post including the Kenburner Slides.

      You can download it from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-types-order/ or within your worpress admin.

      Greetings!

      • Sean

        Thanks! I’ll give this a shot.

        Sean.

    Is there any way to make the slider to dynamically change in size with the window down to an iphone size. The standard one in pagelines dosen’t look good. Yours is better, but not ideal.

  • Peter

    love it – cant thank you enough – just what we were looking for
    can I disable frame border or set to white?

    • http://twitter.com/farago Peter Farago

      Doh – CSS – set to “0″ – sorry

        You got it Sir. :)

    Is it possible to NOT have the zoom effect? I want to turn it off for some of the slides.

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi Gregg.

      Sorry No, you can’t, is the main feature of the slider maybe in the next release but not sure about it.

      Regards!

  • Cosmo

    What image formats can I use in this slider? Are animated gifs a possibility?

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi Cosmo,

      No, animated gifs are not supported , the slider use canvas to draw the efect with a static image, JPG or PNG.

      Regards!!

  • Kakadong

    Is it a bug?
    When I want to use a background through pagelines/settings/color control/Site Background Image (Optional) if I set a small image something like 2*900 ? it will show an error , which says “function.imagecreatefromstring]: Empty string or invalid image in /home/body20/public_html/Jimmy/wp-includes/media.php on line 258

    Warning: imageconvolution() expects parameter 1 to be resource, string given in /home/body20/public_html/Jimmy/wp-content/plugins/pagelines-sections/kenburner-slider/section.php on line 753

        OH! I see. Thanks. ^^

  • Enoquenroll

    Hello, I bought Kenburner-slides, it was generating an error warning every time I upload a file (image, music …), then realized I left an update. I updated, plus the error continues! : (

    The version is Kenburner: v1.2

    Please have to check?
    See the error:

      Hi Enoquenroll,

      I’m so sorry for that, i double check this issue, please update to the latest version ( 1.2.1 ).

      If you need further support, please feel free to contact me.

    Hi,
    I love your Kenburner slider.
    It inspired me to change the style of my web site.
    http://www.e-quilibre.com
    I am wondering if you have the plan to add the option to have no back ground.
    I am using the transparent one but it would be more neat without any.

    Thank you.

    Philippe

    Love this slider. However is it possible in the next update to have the transition from black and white to be longer. It would be nice to have more options than 1 – 5. Just a thought.

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi Peter,

      Yeah Sure, added to the TODO list.

      Greetings!!

  • Djosendale

    Hi, I love this slider but am wondering if there are short codes for placement in sidebar, or content sections? Thanks, Debbie

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi Djosendale,

      Sorry, at this moment the slider only works in the header.

      Greetings!!

  • windi

    Can you have more than one instance of the slider on your site?

    • windi

      Can you have more than one slider – on different pages, not on the same one?

      • Tmeist3r

        Hi Windi,

        Yes you can, in fact you can have a different slider in each page on your site.

        Greetings!!

  • Info

    when will it be available in the main content

  • windi

    I would love it if there were an option to just have the image be still without the Ken Burner effect. Do you think that’ll happen soon? Also, can each slide link to another html page on my site?

    thanks

  • Felix

    Hi mate,

    This is an amazing addition to pagelines. I love it! I have a few questions though
    1. When I put in a YouTube video- it pulls the YouTube advertisements while playing- any way I can disable that?
    2. Vimeo videos are aligned to the left margin rather than centre, any suggestion how I can fix it?
    3. Can I use a static image rather than the fade/slide effect in some slides?

    many thanks for your answers,
    Felix

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi Felix,

      //1.- When I put in a YouTube video- it pulls the YouTube advertisements while playing- any way I can disable that?

      No, that is a youtube feature.

      //2. Vimeo videos are aligned to the left margin rather than centre, any suggestion how I can fix it?

      You can set the alignment via CSS

      //3. Can I use a static image rather than the fade/slide effect in some slides?

      No, at this time.

      Greetings!

  • http://gt-images.net/ Glyn

    Hi,

    When I use the ‘wipe’ effect for the captions the bottom part of the text is cut off…

    It is fine with the ‘fade’ command.

    Please see http://gt-images.net/ken-burner-test/ for an example….

    Many thanks,

    Glyn

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi Glyn.

      Working on it..

  • windi

    Can you set the time interval of each slide? With videos, can they be set to auto-play?

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi, Windi

      Sorry, the answer to both questions is: No at this time.

      Greetings!

  • UGHTV

    Hi, great section, but I’m running into a problem: After spending time repositioning images, I run into a situation where I begin to get ‘residual’ images within the slider window of a previous image, but stationary and in the background. I then will go into my Media section and delete all previous images I was working with in the set, and I’ll delete the set.. and I start over after uploading two new images… yet now I still get a ‘ghost’ residual image that is stationary in the background. Any ideas how to refresh the slider? Thanks

    • UGHTV

      UPDATE: I figured it out, I had inadvertently changed the size of the slide window by 2 pixels in height, and when I changed it back it eliminated the ‘ghost’ image. All good now, thanks.

  • James-anthony

    I have just updated to the latest version of Kenburner (1.2.1) and the latest version of both Pagelines and WordPress. As I did this all at the same time, I am unsure which has caused it, but the Kenburner section is no longer recognised as being installed. When I click install in the store, it will not let me re-install it as it tells me the destination folder already exists. I tried deleting that folder and reinstalling. This allowed me to install it but as soon as it is complete the section is no longer recognised as being installed. Please help ASAP as my website looks horrible without it.

    Thanks plenty

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi James

      That sounds so weird, can you please send me your site details via email ( noone@tmeister.net ) so, i can take a look.

  • http://kendalldavis.myopenid.com/ Kendall

    I cannot believe this can’t be added to the content area of a page template.
    It’s the CONTENT AREA.

    It really can only be added to the Page Templates area?

    Completely unacceptable. Was this just an oversight?

    I want a refund. It’s unusable if I can’t put it in the Content Area of a page template.

    • Tmeist3r

      Hi,

      This is a main slider, typically this are used in the header area, if you using this in a content area obviously the size is much smaller and the the effect is not good that’s why the section can be used only in the header area.

      Of course you can ask for a refund, just this is not the place to do that, please go to the pagelines site and open a ticket for that.

      By the way, to activate the slider in the content area you just need to edit 1 line but please feel free to ask your refund.

      If you want to activate in the content area you should add this line:

      Workswith: templates, main, header

      into the section.php file around the line 12

      Regards!!

    Since I recently updated to the most recent version of Pagelines a few weeks ago (September 2013), I have lost all of my captions on my Kenburner slides. Are you aware of any issue in regard to this? Thank you

  • SomePeopleSay

    Are you still supporting this product? I lost the ability to have captions back in September after a WP update, and now my slides do not continually scroll, they stop on the very last slide in the slideshow and sits there. Thanks for looking into this. http://www.Undergroundhouse.tv
