The plug-in for HE’s slider feature (i.e., the constantly shifting photos with corresponding headlines, just below the HE header) has somehow gone awry. It has to be updated or replaced, possibly with a slider plug-in created by another company (i.e., not the creator of the version I’ve been using for the last four years). Figuring this stuff out isn’t my strongest suit, so if anyone has any ideas, please get in touch.
Thursday, 11.12 update: A couple of hours ago Bay Area HE commenter and software guy Knox Bronson updated all the necessary plug-ins, including the Revolution Slider plug-in. But it didn’t restore the slider. Now I’m waiting to talk to a Fort Worth guy (a friend of Bronson’s) who might be able to lick it.
