I have just launched a new site using the genesis responsive slider on the home page. It is set to use pages, 'including' 5 pages using their page ID's.
When you load the site, it loads everything else first and then, probably several seconds later, the slider loads and starts. Is there anything I can do to speed this up? Or at least have it load the first picture along with the rest of the website and then start the slideshow when it is ready? I have not had this problem on other sites and I can't figure out why it would be so slow. I really don't like the choppy effect it creates in loading the site.
I tried installing WP Super Cache to see if it would help and it did not, though I may not have it set up right for that specific issue.
