Slider not working


first of all: thanks for the amazing free Theme! Outstanding Job!

My problem: Switched from Activello to Sparkling, never had a problem with the Slider working.

I have a Test Post running with a featured Image, I checked the Slider box and checked the category and set the number of Images to 3.
I am not using the Jetpack Plugin that seems to cause some trouble (I searched for an hour to fix my problem). I also tried deactivating a few plugins… couldnt resolve the problem.

Is there any way you can help me?

Thanks so much,

Apparently my child theme was causing the issue! I activated the normal Sparkling Theme and the Slider works again.


Theme Name: Sparkling Child Theme

Template: sparkling

Author: Free WP TP

Author URI:


@import url(…/sparkling/style.css);

body .container {
max-width: 1100px;
@media (min-width: 992px){
padding-right: 22px;
div#secondary {
padding-left: 50px;

This is my complete child theme, what is causing the issue here?
As far as I know hte @import is for overriding the original them. I implemented the custom coding in the original Sparkling theme and it isn’t causing an issue there.


Hi Sven,

I hope you are well today and thanks for posting here.

Could you please try using the attached child theme of Sparkling theme that also contains the custom CSS code that you have shared above?

Best Regards,

That worked like a charm!

Thanks for the quick response and all you do, its highly appreciated!
