Put same slider on every sites homepage?

So I wanted to have the exact same slider show on the homepage of every sub site.
I installed a simple free slider, masterslider, created a slider and in my "New Blog Template" settings I just guessed at a couple of the database tables I thought contained the slider info.

It worked and all new sites have the slider on the homepage even though the slider is not setup in each site, it seems to be just getting the images from my default site. All my sites just have the slider shortcode and worked.

This worked for about 120 sites but now I screwed something up, don't know what and my new sites do not have a slider now.

Any ideas on how I could get the same exact slider to show on the homepage of every site without installing the slider plugin on every site?

I still have a lot of my sites that have a working slider but now the slider on my default site doesn't work so its also not working on new sites being created.

I just got that slider to work and replicate to the other sites by accident, what would have been the right way to do it?

New sites don't work:

    Hi @George,

    I hope you are well today and thanks for posting on the forum.

    Could you please tell me what have you added/updated/deleted that caused the slider not to work as it's working before?

    I am not sure i understood you this statement so please make it clear by describing it a bit more.

    Would you mind if I logged in to your site and did some troubleshooting? This might help get to the bottom of this faster. If this is ok, just grant me temporary admin access to your site by clicking "Grant Access" button in the WPMU DEV Dashboard Settings as described on the following page and reply on this thread after granting it?


    Kind Regards,

    I wasn't sure how the plugin was working? My new sites have the working slider on their homepage but the plugin is not installed on each site & a separate slideshow is not used for each site. They all are displaying slider images from my default site I use as the template.

    I have granted access.

    I just need a simple slider with 4 images so I am open to using anything will work site wide. I was maybe just going to use a html slider if no other options. I can easily copy the html code to all my sites homepages, just need the html that will work site wide.

    I tried copying the html code & script by viewing the source on my working slider page and used that on another page but did not work.

    Sorry, was about to update here. I have users on the site so I had to correct that page.
    I just iframed in an html page to show the slider and its not as smooth but it works for now. I only have a few sites where the slider stopped working so figured I would at least put up a temp fix instead of leaving a missing slider.

    This page has the non-working slider shortcode:

    I don't even care about making that work, just curious if you guys had any tips on what would be the most efficient way to display the same slider across all my sites without installing anything on each site?

    Hello @George

    In that case, I will recommend to contact the plugin developer, if there is anything missing.

    http://evantage360.com/default-template/sample-page/ is just a page right? In the plugin, is there any condition like the slider will work only at home page but not in inner page?

    I can take a look if you please enable support access.
