Good afternoon people. Can anybody recommend a good, reliable image slider to use in SS4? Have always used Flexslider with SS3 versions but can’t get it to work properly in SS4. Slider works fine but I can’t include a link from a slide to the relevant page. Raised this issue on Flexslider Git Hub page early last month but there has been no response from the developers and I have no idea why Flexslider won’t play ball?!!
hi @mike_henden, sorry for the delay on the tickets... we got slammed end of year, just wrapped up for the day w/project work and can help trouble shoot a bit
is you're primary issue the linking?
just wanted to provide an update... I was able to track down the underlying issue with that button styling... we've also created a new repo (it's shea's linkable, but now not a fork that we'll maintain) allowing us to fix the issue... there's a new tag
4.1.0 for flexslider and be sure you're pulling in
let us know if you notice any additional issues with it or if other issues persist
Hey, thanks @muskie9, I’ll check this out. Yep, the linking was the only problem!
👍 the unmaintained linkable module was on our list to figure out in any case, your ticket just got us there quicker 😉
just a heads up you may have to zap shea's module manually from your vendor dir
Thanks for your help @muskie9, that sussed it! Have a great weekend!!
Now just wondering how I can turn the link into a ‘Learn More’ button… which mught have to wait until Monday… 🤔
I'll have to check... I feel like we may implement something on top of this for our use cases to allow for various styles, but can't remember... otherwise from a text standpoint, the Title field I believe should allow for customizing it a bit... otherwise it'll just grab the title of the page linked to by default iirc
Hi, is this the place to ask questions about modules/extensions to Silverstripe (such as FlexSlider)?

Hey people, have a Flexslider issue here — we can upload slide images and text fine, we just can’t link to relevant page for ‘more information’… haven’t had any issues like this with Flexslider before??
That's a module specific question and not a major module either. You might get lucky with someone who has used it but you'd probably want to post this sort of thing in the modules issue register.
That looks like linkable so I’d start there.
Thanks guys, I’ll check linkable first!!
Appreciate the nudge towards linkable @thats4shaw, it is in place and it looks kosher to me. Can you please elaborate?
Hey people, found and removed file — still getting error! No change on log…
It’s a Mac file — will go looking for it!
… on any page. Haven’t investigated Apache yet, this is just looking at the backend. Rebooted an old SS4 site as client is wanting updates…
Had an odd thing happen yesterday — I was starting build on new site so I ran the Silverstripe Installer:
composer create-project silverstripe/installer
… pointing at a directory I had already set up. After configuration I noticed that the URL on my dev site looked a bit odd. So I checked the files and found my configured site was inside a folder called installer??
Never seen this before?!!
