I have a number of sites using Epik, the latest version, and these 2 in particular “Hang” at load… Now it loads the menu and the backgrounds but the slideshow and content dont become visible UNTIL you move your mouse…
This is the site “Hung” – LOAD WITHOUT SCROLLING OR CLICKING – It will sit there till domesday…
This is the site “loaded” after you scroll or click your mouse.
NOW this JUST started like in the last week? Couple days? I am not on these sites every day but I did notice this behavior right away I think.
They both hang the same way… Thoughts?February 13, 2018 at 10:34 am #22444
Looks like it’s doing that because of the fadeup effect. You may already know this, but the fadeup effect is designed to have the content fadein-up when you scroll to each section. Since the first section has it added to the code (slider), it’s waiting on you to scroll so the effect can kick in.
I would probably just remove it from the 1st and/or 2nd widgets. You can easily remove this from the front-page.php widget sections. Look for the
fadeup-effectclass in the slider section and remove it –
genesis_widget_area( 'slider', array( 'before' => '<div class="slider"><div class="front-page-1"><div class="image-section"><div class="flexible-widgets widget-area fadeup-effect"><div class="wrap">', 'after' => '</div></div></div></div></div>', ) );
Let me know if that fixes it.March 7, 2018 at 3:58 pm #22508
Hi Wes. The theme still rocks by the way – setting up 2 more sites with it and the customers are loving it…
I figured out why it was hanging and it was a conflict unrelated to the theme – er well it was related to the theme but not the fault of the theme – there was an image on the first pages that was at an http location and the server/theme didnt like that – I changed its url to https and all was good again. So I am keeping an eye out for that whenever I have a theme or site go squiffy performance wise. Thanks again for the understanding!March 8, 2018 at 4:39 pm #22510
Ah, I thought you were referring to a different issue. Glad everything is working.
Are these 2 sites done? If so I’ll share them on Twitter/Social Media.
Also, anytime you create something with one of our themes, feel free to post them on the showcase if you like – http://appfinite.com/forum/showcase/ Not too many people know about it so I’m trying to share the link for those that are interested.
Great work BTW!June 14, 2018 at 10:50 pm #22687
Believe it or not this turned out to be an SSL thing and i will leave it at that.June 14, 2018 at 10:51 pm #22688
