FAQs

Q: What is the max filesize I can upload to convert PDF’s to a slider?

A: Soliloquy doesn’t limit you to any specific filesize. The filesize you can upload will depend upon your specific server configuration. If you’re experiencing time out issues or file upload problems you’ll want to consider increasing the max_execution_time and max_upload_size settings for your server.


Q: Can I convert multiple PDF files at one time in a single slider?

A: Yes! You can select multiple PDF files to be converted within the same slider. If you need to rearrange the generated slides once the conversion process is complete you can simply drag and drop the slides into the order you desire within the Slider tab.


Q: Why isn’t the PDF Addon working on my localhost installation?

A: Our PDF Addon will not work on localhost WordPress installations. You’ll need to push your site to a remote server to use the PDF Addon.
