W3 Total Cache conflict with frontpage slideshow (9 posts)

    Today I installed W3 total cache on my site http://www.fotocomefare.com.
    After configuring it, I disabled the preview mode and tested it on 3 browsers.
    On Chrome I didn't see any problem, but it was the browser I was logged into, so I think cahced pages were not being served.
    Then I tried it on Firefox and IE. In these two cases I did not log into my site. I have on the homepage a javascript slideshow created through the frontpage slideshow plugin. It creates a list and renders it as a slideshow.
    Sadly in FF and IE, the slideshow was not rendered and I could see only the list. I think it could be related to js minification, but I didn't know which options to change, so I decided to disable W3TC.
    Does someone have a suggestion on how to solve this?

    I have this same problem. I really like the frontpage slideshow plugin but its not compatible with W3 Total Cache and at this time W3 Cache is more important to me. Hope there is a fix soon.

    Did you find a viable alternative to Frontpage Slideshow which is compatible with W3 Total Cache?

    I use Dynamic Content Gallery but I feel its slow. Works ok though. I am willing to buy a custom script but can't find non of that either. Frontpage-slideshow is the closest thing to what am looking for in terms of design.

    Hi,

    I use "Content Slider by SlideDeck" and seems to work fine with TC. But it depends on several things, so I can't recommend it for sure, but maybe you can try ;).

    Thank you almarma. I already tried it but its low customizability disappointed me.
    Do you use the free or the premium version?

    Am interested in the pro version of SlideDeck but am confuse about how to get your own custom skin or get a skin close to what I want and customize the CSS. Does the SlideDeck folks provide a collection of skins or do they make custom skins?

    Is there any consensus on this matter? :)
