[resolved] The slideshow gets hung up if a large number of slides is entered. (2 posts)

    When I use a large number of slides (20-30), the slide show gets hung up. By that I mean that when a random slide is chosen for a second time, it keeps coming back to that slide every other transition. Then, at the end of the slide show, the show stops regardless of the setting chosen for "Return to the beginning of the slideshow after last slide". This is not an issue when only 10 or less slides are used. Anything you can do to help?

    The random option only randomizes the slideshow when the page is loaded. After having gone through all images, the slideshow will indeed return to the first slide and slides will appear in the same order as the previous round. An actual random slideshow will be available from version 2.3.0 on, since this feature needs to be supported by the script.

    If the 'Return to the beginning...' option is set to 'No', the slideshow will stop at the last slide of the slideshow, if it's set to 'Yes', it will return to the beginning. I guess this was confusing because you were expecting a continuous random slideshow, or does this option not work in its entire? If so, could you please show this behaviour on your website?
