Since its first appearance, FlexSlider has always been one of my favorite solutions for empowering a websites with a slideshow.
Since it has been acquired by WooThemes and kept as free software downloadable through their site one would expect that it should work out of the box with WordPress, right?
Unfortunately, as you may have discovered, that is not the case.
On the demo page it is shown how to make it work as a stand alone package, in combination with jQuery 1.6.2.
The script does not take in account that at the present WordPress comes pre-packaged with jQuery 1.10.2. Therefore you will find out that your fabulous slider isn’t quite working. Why? What to do?
The solution is rather simple. Substitute the first line of the script as shown below.
Done that, FlexSlider should finally give you some gratification.
It took a bit for me to find out a solution. So hopefully this will help others.
