Pinboard
Pinboard Slider Text Not Displaying At First (5 posts)

    Hi there,
    I'm using the Pinboard theme (which I love) for my WordPress.org site, but am having a strange issue with the slider function. For some reason, when you go to the homepage of the site, the text of the first slider does not show (but the image itself does). The other slides that follow work properly, displaying the text that I entered along with the featured image. However, when the slides finish one complete rotation, the first slide comes back around and magically the text can now be seen! Why doesn't it display the first time?

    Here's the site: http://www.marilynkentz.com

    Does anyone know why this might be happening? I thought that I created the slider function properly (using sticky posts, etc...), but I want the visitor to see the text of every slide from the moment they visit the site.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    David

    I just figured it out. Its in the CSS. Go to the Stylesheet (style.css) and find this text:

    #slider .entry-title {
    display: none;
    position:absolute;
    top:32%;
    right:0;
    z-index:1;
    float:right;
    float:right;
    margin:0;
    font-family: “MS Sans-serif”, sans-serif;
    font-size:36px;
    line-height:1.62em;
    }

    Change display:none to say display:block and bam, there it is!

    Hi Daniel,

    It's a know bug since Pinboard was released. David, the author of the theme, is aware of this.

    If you will have a look at the Pinboard demo you will notice the same issue with the first slide.
