NOTE: RapidWeaver’s editor uses two types of quotation marks. Be sure your code uses straight quotation marks Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 10.24.50 AM and not curly quotation marks Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 10.25.02 AM. The curly quotation marks are not recognized as code and will cause the slider to load improperly.
