    Hi,

    Is it possible to only display the full width Nivo Slider on one page, for example to have it on my home page but exclude it from all other pages?

    Hi anachoreo,

    Use:

    #slider{display:none}
    .home #slider{display:block}

    Copy and paste to Custom CSS in your theme options.

    See: https://startupwp.com/topic/customizing-your-theme/

    Thank You

    Hi, it does not appear to work. I thought the ID was wrong, so I tried

     #nivoslider-css{display:none}
    .home #nivoslider-css{display:block}

    But that did not work either. Any suggestions?

    Can’t think of any reason why it shouldn’t work.

    URL please and I’ll have a look (make sure the CSS I provided is still saved to Custom CSS).

    Home page: slider should be visible here, but not on any other page.

    For the record, I am running multisite, but your theme only runs on one site.

    Not seeing any Custom CSS in your source code. Did you make sure to check the box at the top of your theme options page to allow Custom Styles?

    Dumb dumb dumb, like the first question at a PC helpdesk: is you computer plugged in?

    Thank you!

    Hey, no worries, easy to overlook at first glance. We’ll have to consider some sort of warning popup for when a user attempts to adjust a setting that hasn’t been turned on yet. Or better yet, simply make it so that when something is added to an input/textarea that that is what activates the feature.

    Listed this for consideration here:

    Hi there

    I’ve followed the instructions above, but I’m still having problems. On my home page I get a gap where the slider should be, with the words [nivoslider slug=”slider”]. The navigation arrows are there but no images. The URL is http://www.burgauapartment.eu. Thanks!

    Hello,
    I love the template. It would be awesome if I could add a different slider to pages. Is there code I can use to change the slider in each page?

    Thanks a million.

    You can manually create additional sliders (as many as you want) and then use the shortcodes to add anywhere, directly into posts, pages, text widgets or any of the custom areas directly in your theme options.

    Shortcodes look like [something].

    If you haven’t yet, you can watch the video on using the slider plugin:

    Thank you. I am able to place sliders in pages and posts. However, I can’t figure out how to put a unique slider on a page in the same spot as the Home page slider. I would like each slider I set up to show up in the space between the navigation bar and the page post. Thanks again.

    This is the universal slider area. To adjust this will require child theming:

    https://startupwp.com/topic/child-theming/

    How many sliders are you looking to have and on what pages/page types?

    I want to add custom sliders to the Universal slider space on my “Programs” pages. I would like to display images related to each program. I will eventually have 6-10 program pages.

    Thanks again.

    We’ll need to setup a child theme in order to manipulate the header.php code.

    1. Setup a child theme: https://startupwp.com/topic/child-theming/

    2. Copy over header.php from the parent theme to the child theme.

    3. Find this line:

    <?php if ( $options['slider'] ){ echo '<div id="slider">'.do_shortcode('[nivoslider slug="slider"]').'</div>'; } ?>

    4. Replace with:

    <?php
    if ( is_home() && $options['slider'] ) {
    echo '<div id="slider">'.do_shortcode('[nivoslider slug="slider"]').'</div>'; 
    elseif ( is_page(28) ) {
    echo '<div id="slider">'.do_shortcode('[nivoslider slug="pro-liability"]').'</div>'; 
    }  elseif ( is_page(30) ) {
    echo '<div id="slider">'.do_shortcode('[nivoslider slug="gen-liability"]').'</div>'; 
    }  elseif ( is_page(83) ) {
    echo '<div id="slider">'.do_shortcode('[nivoslider slug="forced-prop"]').'</div>'; 
    }  else  {
    }
    ?>

    As you can see we’ve prepared the code for the programs you have so far. 28, 30 and 83 correlate to the page’s ID. The slider slugs are a more human-friendly way of indicating what slider it should be.

    5. Create the new sliders under the Nivo Slider options with the appropriate slugs.

    I purchased Pro and went through the steps to install Nivo Slider BUT when I try to activate it, WP is asking me for a license. This is what it says under the plugin name:

    To finish activating the Nivo Slider, please go to Settings and enter your licence key and activate it to enable automatic updates.

    I can’t find any documentation about a license. What did I do wrong?

    You can find the license keys in sources/plugins/keys.txt.

    I tried the key yesterday and got messages saying it was invalid. This morning I logged in to try again and the alert asking me to enter the license is gone. I guess it’s ok now…thanks for your help.

    This appears to just be an error or perhaps just a cache issue, possibly fixed in a plugin update.

    If after the next full StartupPro Package update you still get the nag, let us know. But, you should be good to go on using the plugin without limitation now.

    I’m having the same problem. When I enter the license key for the Nivo Slider WordPress Plugin found in sources/plugins/keys.txt, I get a message that it’s an invalid licence.

    Hey Alex:

    I don’t know what the reason or cause was but 24 hours later after first getting those invalid messages it worked.

    I just logged into WP and clicked on Activate that plugin and it just start going.

    Try again in 24 hours – maybe you’ll have the same result.

    Very strange, you shouldn’t have to wait 24 hours, you should have instant access. Investigating this issue now.

    Has this issue been resolved? I purchased StartupPro yesterday, tried to apply the license key, and received the invalid license error. I found this discussion and decided to wait before pursuing it any further. However, this afternoon I’m still getting the same message.

    From all reports, the license nag appears to simply be a bug that doesn’t actually interfere with your use of the plugin.
