Is there a Way to Specify the First Slide to be Shown?

Asked on January 28, 2016 in Troubleshooting.


Is there anywhere in Layers where you can specify which slide is shown first?
The last slide on my site seems to be loading first.

I thought widget order would dictate slide order on first load, but this is not always the case with my site.

Any help hugely appreciated.

Can’t you just reorder the slides within the widget? Or have I missed the point?

    Hi there,

    If you edit the page and expand Edit Layout, open the slider widget and then drag and drop the slide panels in the order you want them to appear. The top panel is Slide 1 and so-on. Make sure you don\t have duplicates by accident (which happens when you click Add New Slide and then forget to customize it). Please also ensure you are on the latest version of Layers 1.2.10 .

    Thanks Vail Joy & sam.s, I think it may be the style kit I have installed. I have re-arranged the widgets and also deleted them
    and started a new slider but it keeps loading the last slide first.

    Will try removing the style kit and see if I have any success.

    Thank you both for your helpful input.

    Success! It was the style kit causing the slides to be loaded in different order to the
    order of the widgets.
