feature images all flash in on page load

3 posts in this topic



This weekend I upgraded to the latest version of pagelines framework. After that, the features section we have on the homepage began to flashing all four banners upon page load before snapping back to just one. (See screenshot). It was working fine before the update.


I noticed on other threads that large files tend to slow up the page load feature, so I reduced the size (they are all less than 75kb) and tried that, but it still isn't working properly.


The feature carousel is located on the homepage of each language on this site.


Pagelines framework is at the latest update

wordpress is still at 3.5.1

plugins installed include TinyMCE, cforms, post types order, easy columns, WPML, iiRe Social Lite


Thanks for any help.

Hi Antonella

Only a question

Why are you using an older version of WP ?

The current version is 3.7.1

All your plugin are surely outdated too

When I initial loaded your website for the first time, I didn't encounter the issue. However, when I changed language I seen the issue, this is most likely caused by a plugin which is taking forever to load or is related to your server.

I ran a reverse IP check and found that you have 800+ other websites located on your server, this is called Shared Hosting which is cheap hosting. Shared Hosting is cheap web hosting and not recommended for dynamic websites using lots of scripts and plugins. Shared hosting isn't known for its performance either, so if you're worried by your sites performance, I recommend you either:


1. Upgrade your hosting plan/package to something else

2. Switch host to someone like FlyWheel, ZippyKid or WP Engine.

    • 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
