Responsive Slider Plugin Question

So I got the slider going during tutorial exercises but now that I am trying to use it in another project it does not want to show my text or images. I adjusted height and tried to change background color. Whenever I adjust the styling it makes my text and images disappear. Is this just a local server issue or can I expect this issue to continue when I go live. Is there a another Responsive JQuery slider anyone can recommend?

Well, you could post your code and somebody could try to help you if you'd like to continue using it. Personally, I think that I wouldn't use it on any projects. I stuck with it to get through the project but I seem to remember it being a bit of a struggle to get it working and I remember something about Andrew having to use the settimeout function to get it going. The last commit on github was 2 years ago so it's not under active development.

I've used jQuery cycle several times and I like it. http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle2/

There's also flexslider from woothemes.

I would give cycle a try first and see how it suits you.

Thanks for pointing out the 2 year lapse. I had not noticed that. I will try cycle2. Won't waste your time on wmuslider code questions since it's nt under active development.
