Easing Slider
[resolved] Image as Background (7 posts)

    When page first is loaded, the slider starts with a blank white surface. When changing a site, the slider starts every time with a blank white surface. The slider is in the header of the page, so it look very strange when the page ist loaded first time. Is it possible to set a Background Image, that is the same as the first Image in slider? Thanks for help.

    Hi @77martin, this is kind of tricky. If you add a background image to the slideshow, it's not guaranteed that it will have loaded before the slideshow itself, so you may temporarily still get the white background 'flash' before the background image gets loaded.

    You can set the background to be transparent, or simple change its colour. This is the same idea with the preloading icon; sometimes it isn't loaded quick enough to actually be seen, for example if the slideshow loads within a second or so.

    So anyway, you could add a background image but whether or not it would be worth doing so is questionable.
