Problem: PlatformPro WordPress theme is overriding SlideDeck’s font style, making all of SlideDeck’s text italic. (shakes fist).

Solution: Add reset CSS to the PlatformPro child theme’s stylesheet to allow SlideDeck’s text to function normally.

Add the following CSS to the style.css file in PlatformBase (PlatformPro’s child theme):

SlideDeck customization
.slidedeck p, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { /* Override Theme settings that are screwing with SlideDeck’s fonts */
font-style: normal;

    Hi!! My site is
    and the 1st thing you see in my frontpage is a nice slidedeck box ,
    when I installed wp yoast seo plugin the slidedeck design sort of broke,
    it’s not that it sin’t working but it does not look ok, as it should

    If you go down the page and see the “submit” buttom for the contact form
    you see what I mean when I say something happened to the design, the
    button seems to be split in two pieces.

    If I remove from header.php (which I had to ask to my template to make
    yoast plugin work) everything goes back to normal, slidedeck displays

    Please, help me, I really like slidedeck and yoast seo, I’d like to be able to keep them both.

      Sounds like Yoast SEO is causing javascript conflicts for both your SlideDeck and your contact form. Yoast SEO has conflicted with a couple of my plugins as well, so I don’t really use Yoast SEO anymore.

      I don’t have any experience trouble-shooting Yoast SEO, so my recommendation is to turn it off. You might try All In One SEO Pack as an alternative (
