display first image only while other slider images are loading

Hi there,

When my upfront fixer theme site is loading, all the slider images display until the page (or slider) is fully loaded. The site is /staverton. This causes the site to look weird until images are loaded. Is there a way to change this display behaviour out of the box or would I need some script to handle this?

    Hello Mark,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    There's currently no "preloader" kind of feature in Upfront though I agree it would make a great addition to it. I have therefore moved this thread to our "Features & Feedback" forum so other members of our community could vote for it and I believe if it gains more support - our developers would implement in one of the future versions of the plugin.

    As for workaround. Is that the a background slider or is it a "slider module"? If it's a slider module you could put it into a separate region and then set this region background to be the same image as the first slide image and this should at least reduce the issue.

    If you have any additional questions, let me know please.

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.
