Trying to get the Description field to display. Multiple problems in the interface. For example, can't get the interface to add dynamic Title and Description. I can hand fix title, so I've done that. I also tried handle coding a fix to have both Title and Description display. Only title displays so I'm likely guessing the wrong name for "description". Here's my hand corrected code. Anyone have any thoughts??

<div id="slider1" class="dmxNivoSlider slider-wrapper theme-basic" style="width:80%;margin:0px auto 0px auto;">
<div class="nivoSlider"><?php
do {
<a href="<?php echo $row_slider_images['image_link']; ?>" target="_blank"><img src="/slider_images/<?php echo $row_slider_images['image_name']; ?>" alt="" title="<?php echo $row_slider_images['image_title']; ?>" description="<?php echo $row_slider_images['image_description']; ?>"data-thumb="/slider_images/<?php echo $row_slider_images['image_thumb']; ?>" /></a>
} while ($row_slider_images = mysql_fetch_assoc($slider_images));
<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
{"dataSource": "Recordset", "dataSourceType": "dynamic", "dynSlides": {"target": ""}}

Hello Michael,
What do you mean by: "Multiple problems in the interface. For example, can't get the interface to add dynamic Title and Description." ?? What is the issue with adding dynamic content? Can you upload a screenshot of your UI?

Seeing a screen grab of the UI wont add any value. It looks just like your screen grabs online. The issue is this; if you add both a dynamic title and description, you get neither in the resulting code. If you add just title, it works. So for now, I've removed thumb, description, width, and height. If I add everything, the code generated by the extension doesn't work. But if I stick to just image, title, and hyperlink, it works. Therefore, I'm using an HTML editor to put HTML into the title field which gives me the same effect as having a description also.

So steps to reproduce are really pretty simple. Put a record set on your page, add the info slider, and use Dreamweaver to bind all fields. The resulting code doesn't work. I'd be happy to include the resulting code from these steps if you wish. That tells much more than a screen grab of the UI.

Please add everything you need on your page, then upload it to some testing server and provide a link to it, where we can check it.
