Hi again, just following up with some more information. When I go to “Add/Edit Sliders”, select one of the sliders there, and select “view”, the preview loads without the slider showing. I am also unable to see new Theme4Press sliders in the dropdown menu on the page I am editing after I create a new slider in “Add/Edit Sliders”.
Not sure if this helps, but I was using the WordPress theme Fruitful with the Smart Slider 2 plugin before I imported the Alora demo content. I then deleted the Fruitful theme and all non-Alora plugins.
