Bulletproof solution: do not any of this. This kind of behavior should only ever be done in plugins.
These kind of snippets literally cause me and many other plugin developers dozens or hundreds of hours in support requests.
Clasen, I can’t find your support ticket. Can you provide me the link or ticket number?
I wrote one that is here on Code Canyon. You can check my profile.
Contact the author directly from the item’s page. That’s the best way to get help.
I have a plugin here on Code Canyon. There are a couple of others that should work just fine as well.
The best place to ask this is in the item comments for the particular slider you purchased. This is a public forum, not a support forum for individual items.
Knowing which slider it is also helps
I built that gallery system for CG Cookie (my brother is one of the co-founders). While I’ve never put together a single complete plugin, I have written extensive tutorials on the different components of the gallery:
Writing a Love It plugin (full plugin available for download): http://pippinsplugins.com/write-a-love-it-plugin-with-ajax/
Creating a User Submitted Gallery System: http://pippinsplugins.com/series/user-submitted-image-galleries/

October was my best month ever.
Unfortunately this is not the ideal situation, but officially we are not allowed to offer automatic updates. Rumors say that Envato is working on something similar to the automatic update they offer for WordPress themes on themeforest.
I spoke with Collis personally a few days ago and brought this up. He said that that is definitely not true, and if it is, it shouldn’t be. Authors are more than welcome to include auto updaters. I include auto updaters in all of my new plugins.
@colorit unfortunately for buyers, the only way to get notified is if authors have included something like the updater (I wrote/adapted it) above. When I spoke to Collis (Envato CEO ) a few days ago, I brought this up as a major problem with the marketplaces, so hopefully we’ll eventually see some sort of notification system implemented.
