Photo sliders won't work "live" but work under wp/admin with Divi theme


I can’t get slideshows, galleries or sliders to work. When I view my site from within wp/admin the sideshow on my front page works. However, I can’t get a slideshow or slider to work “live”. I have tried the modules within Divi and I also tried loading an external plugin the “Soliloquy” slider.

And, the frustrating thing is that when I first made this site the slider worked. I don’t know when it stopped working.

    Hello EileenDreams

    Hope you are well today and thanks for asking us. :slight_smile:

    Have you checked your browser console ? Is there any JavaScript error popping up there ? if not, please go ahead and conduct plugin conflict test as described in this support manual,

    Surprising fact here is that it was working when you first created it, so is there any update you applied or installed any other plugin after that ?

    Best Regards,

    Hey there EileenDreams,

    I hope you’re doing good today and don’t mind skipping in! :slight_smile:

    I deactivated the plugins and discovered that Hummingbird is the plugin that created the problem. So I left it deactivated and the slides work now.

    I’m glad that you managed to resolved this but I’m not really glad that you had to leave HB disabled. I presume this was happening due to styles & scripts minification. If you wish, I’d be more than happy to assist you setup HB as better as it can get in your installation. :slight_smile:

    Warm regards,
