    Skywalker’s sliders rely on the WordPress feature of attaching image media to pages. WordPress also doesn’t have an easy option for UNattaching (or detaching) images from a page. I found a great plugin called WP Attachment that:

    • Lists all attached images.
    • Enables drag sorting of images.
    • Detaches images with a click.
    • Provides a quick way to attach/detach images in the Media Library.

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-attachments/

    PROBLEM: Detaching images doesn’t actually detach the image. It only removes the image thumbnail from the Media list. The slider thinks the image is still attached and displays it.

    REQUEST: If you can point out where I can look to edit how the slider searches for attached media, I can patch the WP Attachments plugin to reverse the attachment flag, and detach the image from the page.

    CONCERNS: Part of my problem is that I have recently updated to WP 4.1, but the plugin isn’t confirmed to work with this version. However, if I know how Skywalker works, I can update my copy of the plugin to fix that.

    Thanks!

    Hello. I don’t want you to do it for me. I just wanted to know how Skywalker implements media attachments. As I explained, when I use the WP attach plugin to unattach media files, the slider still thinks the images are connected even though the page doesn’t list them. I think that’s a bug in your implementation.

    I didn’t want to fix it if it’s a known issue that you will be fixing on future releases.

    Hello codemaestro,

    Please read our theme documentation and you will find the required information in section 2.1 . Sliders

    Actually it’s not used attachment it is used image caption so your plugin which is detaching photos wouldn’t work in this case

    Best Regards

    Thanks. But I thought the documentation said that images must’ve both attached AND have a caption to link to a specific slider? When I just use image captions without attaching images I didn’t think the images appeared.

    I guess I could check again.
