First, update your copy of SlideDeck 2 to the latest version.
All of your current SlideDecks can be made responsive by simply adding the parameter "ress=1" to the shortcode used to embed it in the page/post. Here’s an example:
[SlideDeck2 id=XXXX ress=1]
Simply using the “ress=1″ attribute will enable your SlideDecks to scale proportionally, based on the width of the screen that’s viewing it .
We’ve got another attribute you can adjust; “proportional=false”:
[SlideDeck2 id=XXXX ress=1 proportional=false]
Proportional is true by default, and when you set “proportional=false”, your deck will use the specified height (in the edit screen) and simply stretch horizontally to fill the area the deck occupies.
Making your SlideDecks 'RESSponsive' will cause them to be embedded in an iFrame that reloads an appropriately sized deck when the page loads/is resized. Fear not, as your HTML markup is still present behind the iFrame (which is inserted dynamically).

Not sure where to begin with installing SlideDeck 2 for WordPress? Need a quick walkthrough on some of the awesome features available?
Jason takes you through the installation process, initial setup, and some of the features of SlideDeck 2 for WordPress. This is a great video to watch to get you started using SlideDeck 2 for WordPress.
Note: If you have purchased the Professional or Developer tiers, you must be sure to install the pre-requisite SlideDeck tier plugins(Personal, Professional Addon). For example, if you have the Professional tier, you need to first install Personal and then the Professional Addon. If you bought the Developer tier, you must first install Personal, then the Professional Addon and then the Developer Addon.

You've eagerly purchased and installed the plugin while imagining how incredible it was going to be and how much time it was going to save and how many possibilities...wait, something's not right. Uh oh, I think it's broken... Fear not! You've come to the right place!
As there are an infinite number of possible setups for each installation of WordPress, it is impossible for us, as plugin developers, to account for every scenario. While SlideDeck 2 follows the best practices for plugin development as recommended by WordPress, frequently problems that arise can be attributed to a specific setup. So let's start by making sure our playing field is level...
1. Make sure you meet the minimum requirements and everything is up-to-date. Check this post for the full explanation of requirements: http://dtelepathy.zendesk.com/entries/21180728-what-are-the-require.... Basically, you want to check that you have WordPress 3.3.x, a modern browser, and the current latest version of SlideDeck 2.
2. Temporarily disable your other plugins. Sometimes two plugins try to occupy the same resources. Their ensuing duel can cause strange behaviors to bubble to the surface. If SlideDeck 2 works when it is the only active plugin, start reenabling your other plugins one-by-one until it breaks again. Congratulations! You've found the culprit.
3. Temporarily switch to an unmodified copy of the default WordPress theme (Twenty Eleven, at time of writing). Similar to the plugin collision, sometimes custom themes have hardcoded pieces that cause collisions and other strange behaviors. Is it working, yet?
4. Add "iframe=1" to your shortcode. Our "silver bullet" solution loads our plugin in an iframe to isolate it and insure all of the dependencies are included. If this doesn't fix it, the problem is likely a little deeper under the surface, in which case, we'd be happy to help you locate it.
