  1. Hi there,
    I’ve just installed the update. And my slide show is still stuck! Can you please advice what to do as I’ve been waiting for email help support for over a month and I still have no response? I thought this update is meant to fix the slideshow but mine stop working since I use wordpress 3.6. Please please help!

    • Hi pauseuk,

      please read more in the CC2 blogpost about this situation:

      I thought we made it clear in the blogpost… :(

      1. The codebase is really old right now and origins from one of the first BuddyPress Default Themes. We fixed everything we could, but its simply not possible to patch it all out anymore. There comes a time, when radical reinvention is needed. A new beginning, to get rid of all the old stuff.

      2. We are working on the new CC 2.0 already. CC2 is completely based on HTML5, CSS3 and Twitter Bootstrap 3.0. It’s TRULY responsive and simply fresh code.

      3. Working on the last old CC issues would take forever and delay all the new stuff we want to publish for weeks or months.

      There’s simply no way around making a cut now, providing a last update with all bugfixes possible, and hurry up finishing the new CC 2.0 and an update script so you have a most seamless upgrade to the new system.

      Regarding your specific slideshow problem now:
      Why not try out some of the many slideshow plugins out there?
      * There are also awesome animation sliders, with single elements flying in and that.. *

      I really hope you can understand the situation,
      if you have any other questions or ideas, let us know!

      • Thank you so much Konrad. Yes, I understand from what you are saying. And yes, I can change to a new slide show plugin for now. Please can you suggest a plugin something I can use instead? I was looking around and can’t choose one. Also I’m not sure how to put the slider on my homepage under my menu, where the current slide show is? I don’t know where to put the code as I’m using the child theme. And most of those slider plugin need me to paste the code on PHP and I have no idea where to put the code on the page. Thank you again for help. Sherry

        • Hi Sherry,

          would be great if you would post your experiences and favorite slideshow plugins here that run with CC.. :) (or maybe just slideshow plugins that look nice and promising!)

          For the child theme integration and how to call a slideshow then in CC, I will be glad to help out and write a small tutorial tomorrow, so other users can just install one of the recommended slider plugins and copy and paste the code I’ll post tomorrow. So they just have to insert the new php-call for the slider.

          I’ll write a small function that wraps a div around and hooks it exactly at the place the old slider has been, so you just have a new awesome slideshow inside! :)

          Thats only a solution for child themes now, but definetely the easiest and cleanest way to put a slider on exact that place..

          See you tomorrow, Konrad

        • Hi Sherry,

          as promised, I made a small how-to for the slideshow-replacement-thingy,
          with some example code to copy, paste and modify.. ;)

          see here and let me know how things work out on your end:

          Hope this helpful for anyone else here, too! :)

          Would be great if you add your experience and which slideshow plugins work nice with CC…

          I found SlideDeck 2, which is pretty awesome and 100% working, like a charm! :)

          And for free! (Pro stuff also available at their site).

          Have fun,

  2. Thought I’d let you know about an issue I had with the update. I use a static front page and that worked fine. But when I called up my “posts page” it was a bit messy and the most recent posts did not show up.

    Reverted back to 1.17.2 for now

  3. I just downloaded your theme and am having problems with the widgets…. Basically nothing is happening and I’m stuck with random posts search by tags archives links and meta off to the right.
    What am I doing wrong? I’m dragging widgets into the containers but they disappear when I return the the widgets menu?
