Slider not working


I have tried to add slider for my website but if i check mark for “Check if you want to enable slider” and save the option I get an error as “Slider is not properly configured”. No where I am getting option to upload the image. Please help me to solve this issue.

I’m having the same issue:

Looking forward to the solution! Cheers!

Yeah I’m also battling over here to get the slider working. How soon can we expect a reply on this forum? It’s my first time.

I had also posted this issue
problem is with there configuration theme is not properly created. No one had replied then I had done it through code.
edit extras.php file and gave custom values for variables $count and $slidecat in the function dazzling_featured_slider.

Can you explain to a complete newbie how to add custom values.
This is what I see(below). Where do I add custom values? Thanks)

if ( ! function_exists( 'dazzling_featured_slider' ) ) :
 * Featured image slider
function dazzling_featured_slider() {
    if ( is_front_page() && of_get_option('dazzling_slider_checkbox') == 1 ) {
      echo '<div class="flexslider">';
        echo '<ul class="slides">';

          $count = of_get_option('dazzling_slide_number');
          $slidecat = of_get_option('dazzling_slide_categories');

            if ( $count && $slidecat ) {
            $query = new WP_Query( array( 'cat' => $slidecat, 'posts_per_page' => $count ) );
            if ($query->have_posts()) :
              while ($query->have_posts()) : $query->the_post();

              echo '<li>';
                if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) { // Check if the post has a featured image assigned to it.

                echo '<div class="flex-caption">';
                  echo '<a href="'. get_permalink() .'">';
                    if ( get_the_title() != '' ) echo '<h2 class="entry-title">'. get_the_title().'</h2>';
                    if ( get_the_excerpt() != '' ) echo '<div class="excerpt">' . get_the_excerpt() .'</div>';
                  echo '</a>';
                echo '</div>';


            } else {
                echo "Slider is not properly configured";

            echo '</li>';
        echo '</ul>';
      echo ' </div>';

Hi There,

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

You can configure the slider from the following path in your admin area.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Dazzling Options -> Slider options

To enable slider tick checkbox “Check if you want to enable slider” on the above path.

Select category from dropdown to use for slider
Now enter number of slides to be used in slider (newest Posts from that category will be used)

Please make sure that you have created categories on your site and assigned it to posts as described on the following page.

Make sure you have Featured Images selected for those Posts as described on the following page.

Best Regards,
