Slide in plugin doesn't appear in website

Hi Hello,

I've installed the SLideIn plugin. And created a simple text just for test purposes.

The global settings I left default exept for the fact that Slidin should start after 1 second.

But no where on the homepage, the slide in appears.. Either logged in or out.

So did I do something wrong?

I Installed it here: http://design-b.webityourself.nl/

Please let me know.
Kind regards,
Steven

    @wijngaardeWD,

    It looks like your theme isn't calling the proper hook for Slide In on the home page. This defaults to 'loop_end' which is just after all the posts or the current page is loaded. Sometimes themes with custom homepages don't run a query, and this hook isn't executed.

    Under slide in global settings, try changing the injection hook to:

    wp_footer

    Hi @wijngaardeWD,

    It's strange that wp_footer didn't work, as this should always be triggered.

    Finding a new hook would greatly depend on the theme. Would you mind sending me a copy so I could take a look at the home page template? Then I can see what hooks we have to work with. You can send it to contact[at]wpmudev.org - Include my name in the subject "Alexander Rohmann" and a link back to this thread as well.

    Hi again,

    Ok, so I've tested this with your theme, and I'm still not quite sure why it doesn't like the home page. I did however find that if you edit the slide-in and specifically enable the "Show on" setting and set to "Home page" it will in fact display.

    You would in this case need to create a duplicate slide-in item for your home page.

    Let me know if this works for you.

    Ok, just let me know how it goes! Actually I think you'll be able to use the default "loop_end" hook. It really doesn't matter though.

    I was able to get this working on my test site with your theme. Just let me know if you need any more assistance

    Best regards
