Unable to Edit Existing MD Slider - Drupal 7.32

I have been using this plug in on a production web site (included in theme purchase) for some time without problems. However since upgrading to Drupal 7.32 it no longer allows me to select “settings” when configuring a slide, it simply does nothing when you select it. The “clone” option next to that works, but the [setting] link does nothing.

I have now purchased the plug in on it’s own, downloaded the latest version and installed it and it does not correct the issue.

I tested disabling clean urls on my development server also as a test also and this did not resolve the issue either. Please advise.

I did some in depth investigative work and discovered the issue was introduced with the use of a different administrative theme in Drupal.

I have opted to use the generally awesome responsive "Adminimal" theme ( https://www.drupal.org/project/adminimal_theme ) for the site to enable better mobile CMS access. Switching the administrative theme back to Bartik 7.32 resolves the issue and allows the [settings] link to pop up the options while editing a slider in Drupal 7.32.

I guess the work around is to switch the admin theme to change the slider then turn it back on to support responsive mobile updating.

This is the only issue I've ever seen with Adminimal, which removes a ton of usability issues for responsive web design with Drupal, leading me to opt to continue to use it and leverage this work around.

Hi Gpeakweb,
Thank you very much for your feedback as well as your concern in our module. However, our MD Slider has not supported this yet. We also hope to be successful in handling this issue but it seems really complicated and we could not promise anything in advance. Thus, if you have any suggestions or ideas, feel free to share us. It will be much appreciated!

Many thanks!
