Couple of minor issues i found in Alyeska 3.1.4

    Just a few things I found, when you get a chance please Jason:

    1) The Nivo slider option: “Do not pause on mouse hover”, will still pause on hover, and will un-pause when moving off the slider. I noticed you have 3 options in the “Standard” slider. Perhaps we need the same in Nivo?

    For what it’s worth, I really think those big grey text blocks in the sliders are un-desirable. If you have a slider Title such as “Beautiful Beaches”, you still have that big grey block hiding a good portion of your photo.

    I use the following css for the Standard slider, perhaps you could make this standard? Or an option.
    /*show TB full image slider Title and Descrip in smaller box*/
    .standard-slider-wrapper .full-image .content
    {background-color: transparent !important}
    .standard-slider-wrapper .full-image .slide-title span
    {background-color: #222; padding:0 5px 0 5px}
    .standard-slider-wrapper .full-image .slide-description
    {background-color: #222; padding:0 5px 0 5px; display: inline-block}

    2) The Nivo slider doesn’t have a pause button, only left and right arrow buttons. Maybe has something to do with hover option.

    3) The text font on the Nivo Slider is in Bold. It looks yucky. Standard Slider is normal weight.

    4) I think the Nivo slider should have a min-height set, so it doesn’t push the page content down after it finally loads the images. I think you did this for the Standard slider. Or maybe I did?

    5) When using the theme’s “Dark” Body Style option, the “Slogan” element doesn’t change to white like other text does.

    That’s it. Thanks for the great work!

    Thank you for the feedback and suggested bug reports.


    Hi Jason,

    I am having the same issue with Nivo slider (using Jump Start, but presumably will apply to all TB themes) that the slider IS pausing on hover even though the Pause On Hover is disabled in the slider options.

    Thanks; I’ll make sure “pause on hover” works as it should for the nivo slider type in the next update to the sliders plugin.


    I guess I’ll post here because I’m having the same pause on hover issue currently in JumpStart.
    Theme Version: 2.0.4
    slider plugin Version 1.2.4

    When I check page source I see:

    controlNav: true,
    pauseOnHover: true,
    pauseTime: 5000,
    manualAdvance: false,

    So the plugin option isn’t being reflected in the jQuery.

    I get the same result using shortcode or calling with — themeblvd_slider($slider_id]);

    I guess this more applies to the plugin, than being theme dependent, so I just replied here.

    In Jump Start, and all framework 2.5+ themes, I’m trying to push everyone away from using the Theme Blvd Sliders plugin by putting lots of slider capabilities directly into the framework and the layout builder. You’ll notice the Theme Blvd Sliders plugin is not a recommended plugin for Jump Start 2, and moving forward with it now being 2016, I don’t currently have plans to update it. The exception to that would be if something happens in a WordPress or jQuery update that really breaks things for people using framework 2.4 themes (like Alyeska), that rely on it.


    Jason and John, I’m kind of thinking the parameters for the Nivo Slider could be loaded into the theme.js file in the child theme and modified. I kind of remember trying that one time.

    John – I’m wondering if you might try another slider plugin if you really need that functionality somehow entirely different than what is build into the TB Layout Builder? I haven’t researched them in a while. I usually use Layer Slider, but that might be overkill for some clients.
