Hi there,
My site here http://www.xfactorideas.com.au/newbcplastics/ has got a Meta Slider configured to sit underneath the menu.  However its not showing!!.  When I quickly refresh the page, I can see the slider for a brief moment before it disappears.

Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening?
Thanks

You are missing the core jQuery library.

You could try adding this to your functions.php file in your theme folder.
function mh_load_my_script() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );
}

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'mh_load_my_script' );

Open in new window

Saw a flash of it again.

I added this to the child theme only.......... but when I added it to the parent it says something about mh_load_my_script already delcared or something like that.  Which I would expect because the theme does include this slider in its bundle!

Any other ideas?

It is strange how I see if for a moment so its there, but then covered

Still no jQuery core library loading. Plus there are syntax errors coming from javascript being printed to the page.
Firebug errorsmh_load_my_slider is a named function. Named functions must be uniquely named so that explains the error. It has nothing to do with slider plugins. You only need to add the function and function call to your child theme functions.php file. You should leave the parent theme functions.php untouched. Can I see those two files?

Either of these sliders can be made to work. Having two on the page just gunks up the works and makes troubleshooting more difficult. Don't blame the sliders. There's something more basic wrong with you Wordpress setup and the problems are cumulative.
