This afternoon I installed patches SUPEE-5344, 8788, 7405, 6788, 6482, 6285, 5994 & 1533. When I went to the front end of my site the Joomlart SlideShow & Product Slider normally on my home page were gone. Unfortunately I don't know which one broke the sliders though as I foolishly didn't check the front end after each install. Can anyone give me any insight on how to fix this? I contacted the extension developer and they directed me to this forum. Thanks!
Which version of Magento are you using?.
Maybe you'll need to authorize the custom block type on System -> Permissions -> Blocks ?
I just added the permissions and it still doesn't show on my home page. Maybe I added them wrong? I'm very new to Magento so I'm not really sure what I"m doing. I'm relying very heavily on Google
