[resolved] Loading Issue (3 posts)

    Hi. I really like this plugin, and it's one of the few that offers responsive as a free option. However, I notice that there's something screwy when the page loads; it loads all of the images in a funky format before the slider itself loads and corrects itself. Its very noticeable on a slower machine. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    The plugin loads all of the images inline in HTML along with the styles and scripts that are needed to load it, along with all of the same type of files that control the rest of your site.

    While the stylesheet should load first, stopping all of the images from showing stacked, this doesn't always happen and depends on your server, browser, internet connection, etc. Unfortunately this isn't something that I can fix in an acceptable way for all connections.

    Thank you for trying the plugin though, hope that it's still useful!

    Thanks for the response David! I actually found a plugin called Performance Optimization: Order Styles and Javascript which seems to have gotten rid of this issue entirely. Homepage load time is a tad slower, but it's still w/in reasonable guidelines.

    Thanks again for the plugin & for your timely response.
