Features Load Problem - All Features Display One on Top of the Other

7 posts in this topic

The features on my homepage are loading bizarrely in Firefox.  When the page loads, there is a flash at the beginning where all of the seven features are visible one over another scrolling down behind the content of the rest of the page which looks pretty awful. 

Then everything snaps back into place, and the page looks normal.

This happens in a weird flash when the the page is loading, but it is not an attractive effect.


The features are set at fixed static height 200 pixels, which is their actual height.

You can see this weird load issue at:



I hope someone can help!  This effect does not seem to happen in Safari or Chrome.

Hi wendyweb

I don´t see the flash in my Firefox in this moment.

I have this flash in all my sites (with Safari too), but my problem is that i have a shared host (Godaddy). 

This happens to me when the server has much use, in some times, especially at night.

Hi Wendy,


Like Batman I am unable to see the issue on FireFox, when I viewed your site the Features were displaying as intended. Do you have any addons active in FireFox, if so try disabling them all and then load your site again.

Thanks Danny and Batman.  I'm glad to hear you are not seeing this.  Interesting about the shared host issue.  I'm on bluehost, shared, and was wondering if I should upgrade a notch because of the size and complexity of what I'm trying to build.

I've just added the domain to a reverse IP checker and found that your site has over 270 websites, although isn't the worst Ive seen but that is still quite a lot of websites using the same resources as your site.


We do recommend the following the hosts:

Thanks, I'm happy with Bluehost and not keep to move but am inquiring about an upgrade.  I'm on the lowest level of shared service status, I think!

AH OK, well upgrading may be a good idea then.


Let us know how you get on.

    • Link from feature image
      By flaxpits
      Is there a way to use the whole image in the feature slider as a link? I have searched the forum and noticed in 2011 this was posted and the reply was no. Has anything changed in 4 years?
    • Features resizes?
      By dfsdafd23
      I'm using features on the landing page of my website. My issue is that when the page loads the feature slider will resize itself every time. I've tried to tinker around with the layout of the site (static, responsive, %, px) and with the source images (not to big, the actual size) but it doesn't help. Any tips? 
      Here's a video of how it looks:
      Website URL: test.andersaagesen.dk
      Framework Version: 2.4.4 w. child theme
      WordPress Version: 4.2.1
      Plugins in Use: simple css lite, pagelines security patcher, contact form 7, backWPup
      Server/Host: unoeuro.com
    • First two images of Features Slides are not working properly
      By chambermv
      The features images are not displaying properly. The first image is blank and the second displays this script: if (document:)document.getElementbyld("divcb6b4a52").style.height = (441-440)+"px";
      There should only be 8 images to display, but it adds two images before that are blank and have that text I indicated.

    • Translating Features with WPML
      By avstrati
      We've recently added the top rated Word Press translation tool WPML to our Website in order to translate our site into a second language. Everything worked like a charm, except one thing: the PlatformPro features. 
      Our home page was designed in English with the features slider and some text, using what is now the Select Feature-Set for Posts & 404 Pages option so that we could custom create our features. The features are tagged as default-features so that they may be selected to appear in the scroll. The thing is, we cannot translate them. 
      Can someone please help me figure out a work around please?
      Many thanks
