Feature Slider Hesitates / Wrong Size On Load

Question

Posted · Report post

We are moving LinksManager.com to Pagelines on Wordpress. So far so good but the features slider hesitates on load and the size isnt correct. After a few seconds of hesitation, it correctly sizes. Looks kinda awkward. Do I have a setting missing somewhere? It's happening in all browsers. You can see a screen shot of the wrong size/hesitation here: http://linksmanager.com/images/hmmmm.jpg

You can recreate it by visiting http://linksmanager.com/wordpress (work in progress please excuse any unsightlyness - still learning).

Any suggestions for how to fix this problem?

Joel

Go to the features setting, set the height to 285 where it says static height

This case still unresolved.  http://www.linksmanager.com/images/helpplease.jpg

 

The problem is being reported as you can see by the screenshot from a designer in Europe.  It's not related to a specific computer or browser type the problem is occuring in all browsers which leads me to believe I have a setting wrong.  I dont think its a pagelines bug I think its a user error.  Therefore please tell me which settings to check and where those settings are. 

 

thanks again for your help.

Joel, are all the images the exact same size? Usually hesitancy is caused by the Framework trying to scale or resize the images to fit. If your images don't need sizing, it helps.

Additionally, making sure that the image link is in the Background, not the Media area of the Feature setting is important.

The images are exactly the same size 640x255. I got this size by opening up the browser window 100% (after making final decision on layout via pagelines>drag&drop). Then had trouble with using the "feature design style" - everything kept showing black background even if I chose white. Never resolved that issue so got around it by simply uploading the image via the background image link as you noted above. Thought that would work and it does - but the hesitating on load is unprofessional looking. Is it because there is a setting somewhere else that needs to be set to indicate the exact size of the features window?

Hey Simon,

I'm having a similar problem with several feature sliders that resize. My question is how did you figure which height would solve the problem?  I've tried several methods but none of them work.

Honestly Joel, I'm not seeing much hesitancy at all, if any. This could be your computer. We don't build in any latency or hesitancy into the transition that I know about. I'll surely ask our developers.

Just to eliminate that possibility, clear your browser cache and check the site in all your browsers and a few devices (if you have them). I'll attend to the other issue ass soon as possible.
