Text Not Showing Up On Button Pagination

All of our posts on recaplet.com contain slideshows, so on the very first page we want it to say "Start Slideshow >" on the button under the post. Right now, the button just has a ">" and the text "Start Slideshow" isn't appearing, but I can't figure out why. If you look at the source for a post page, such as this post: http://www.recaplet.com/10-30-drugstore-anti-aging-products-dermatologists-always-recommend/ , you will see the following code:
<div class="entry-pagination pagination"><a href="http://www.recaplet.com/10-30-drugstore-anti-aging-products-dermatologists-always-recommend/2/"><span class="pagination-before">START SLIDESHOW <i class="fa fa-chevron-right"></i></span><span class="pagination-after"><i class="fa fa-chevron-right"></i>

The code we are using to do this in functions.php ... I'm granting you access to our website via the wpmu admin tool, in case that is helpful.

Please let me know what we are doing wrong and how to fix it so that the words "START SLIDESHOW >" appears on the button, but ONLY on the first page of each post.

Thanks for your help!

    Hi d-invent,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    Its because you are hiding the pagination before and in pagination after you don't have text "START SLIDESHOW" in pagination after tag.

    Here is the updated code for that.
    <div class="entry-pagination pagination"><a href="http://www.recaplet.com/10-30-drugstore-anti-aging-products-dermatologists-always-recommend/2/"><span class="pagination-before">START SLIDESHOW <i class="fa fa-chevron-right"></i></span><span class="pagination-after">START SLIDESHOW<i class="fa fa-chevron-right"></i>

    Hope that helps! Feel free to post a reply if you need further assistance :slight_smile:

    Best Regards,
    Sajid

    That does not resolve the issue at all. I'm using the exact same code on a different website to display NEXT PAGE > on the first page, and it works. Please see http://www.recapo.com/the-chew/the-chew-recaps/chew-fish-tacos-island-coconut-rice-pudding-jerk-shrimp/ for example.

    I need JUST the first page to say "START SLIDESHOW >" with a large button that spans the width (like it does on the recapo.com example above)... and then every page after the first page should have 2 buttons with just "<" on one and ">" on the other.

    Hi there d-invent ,

    What my colleague Sajid sais is that in your original posts your code contained the text in the previous button which is hidden.

    Have you tried the code and it doesn't work? I have visited some posts in your page and I can see the text. Could you let me know if I am missing something, perhaps have to look at specific post?

    Thanks!
