Promotion Slider
[resolved] Image pop (8 posts)

    Hi,

    We have been using Promotion slider for several years. We currently have it configured to change the image on page refresh. We are noticing that with FF vs. 16 the image pops from one image to the next one while the page loads. We don't experience this with other browsers (Safari and Chrome).

    Do you have any suggestions for troubleshooting this?

    Thanks,
    Ian

    Where is the slider located so that I can take a look? I assume you are referring to FireFox version 16. I was wondering what FireFox versus 16 meant for a split second... :)

    Actually, it appears that the same thing happens in Chrome as well. It isn't too terribly obvious, but I can tell what the issue is. Basically, the code that starts on a random image is in the javascript. This means that the first image will always display until the javascript loads and changes which image is showing. Typically, the javascript loads pretty quick and users may never see but one image. I think one of the contributing factors in your case it that you are loading 28 images via the slider when only one is going to be displayed.

    Honestly, given what you are trying to do, I don't know that the Promotion Slider is the best fit. I just put together a plugin that will do exactly what you need. Keep an eye out for the release of 'mPress Image Refresh'. It will probably take about a week to get the code up on the WordPress repo, but you can shoot me an email if you want to get it early.

    Micah,

    Thank you for taking the time to troubleshoot the problem. I know that earlier we had used the plugin as a true slider. I will have to ask the site owner if he would rather use it as a refresh or slider plugin and then move forward accordingly.

    Will using less images make a difference?

    In either case I will definitely keep a lookout for mPress Image Refresh.

    I think we can mark this as resolved given the options you present.

    Thanks, Ian

    Ian,

    I know I already got you the code, but I wanted to post a link to the new mPress Image Refresh plugin now that it is officially available in the WordPress repository: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mpress-image-refresh/
