Unfortunately the answer to that question is yes. In an ideal world, all plugins and themes would be developed to the same standards, using the same skill set and same level of knowledge and understanding. But this is most definitely not an ideal world, so things can get wonky at times.
We tried to make sure that we followed WordPress' development standards and methodologies when we wrote SlideDeck 2 and we continue to do so with bug fixes and additions. Sure we are not perfect and make mistakes and do things incorrectly at times, but we tried really darned hard to make our plugin as excellent as we can. Sadly there are plugins and themes out there that don't always follow these standards and at times this can conflict with SlideDeck.
Sometimes, there is a really simple adaptation that can be made, other times there is just nothing we can do. So here is a list, that may grow or shrink over time. We will offer what advice we can, and any possible solutions we have come up with for these.
- Social Slider Pro for Wordpress - user reported this premium plugin causing issues. Waiting to hear back from plugin author to determine the exact issue
- Column-Matic - when this plugin is activated, erroneous P tags are injected into SD content even when the shortcode for Column-Matic is not used. This causes some functionality to break with SD. If using Column-Matic, we suggest loading your SlideDecks using the iframe=1 method.
- cforms - when this plugin is activated, some text areas in SlideDeck are hidden
- RokAjaxSearch - when activated, this plugin has been reported to prevent general use such as slide editing
- Roll Scoper - when activated, this plugin has been reported to conflict with the output of SlideDeck
