FAQ: I added the slider shortcode to a WordPress page, but the slider is not showing up, and there is the following error in JavaScript console: Uncaught TypeError: jQuery(…).wonderpluginslider is not a function

This problem is normally because there are multiple jQuery loaded in your WordPress. Please view the following tutorial for how to fix the problem: https://www.wonderplugin.com/wordpress-carousel-plugin/multiple-jquery-loaded-in-wordpress/?ref=lite

Seriously simple and seriously amazing! Like anything… there is a learning curve BUT so much better than other video slider plugins…. At the moment my need is very simple but if I had more complex needs, I would definitely consider buying the pro version of this plugin!!!

Everything is fine, but tell me how to align the slider to the left and right. It is centered and I can’t do anything in the settings. Padding doesn’t work, only reduces it.

I’m using the free version of this slider on all the posts of my professionnal photography website. I needed a lightbox for the pictures of the slider, and this one works perfectly. Really nice and cool. A potential improvement could be brought by automating the link of the image adress in the slider.

Boa tarde a todos. Eu comecei a usar esse plugim que estava funcionando perfeitamente, mas por algum motivo, as imagens deixaram de aparecer. Está faltando atualização com essa solução. Mesmo assim dei 3 estrelas porque gostei muito desse plugin antes do problema.
