    Hi Andrew,

    Hope you are doing well.

    I moved my site from the draft version xavierlg.frox.fr to the official adress: http://www.anciens-sciencesporennes.net

    I notice that on both sites, when I load a page, the main sliding banner with 4 images on my homepages loads in two times : first displaying the image in its original size, then widening it.

    Is there anychance it could directly load with the correct width ?

    Thanks a lot and have a nice day,
    Xavier

    Hi Xavier

    Great to hear from you.

    At the moment, I’m afraid, I don’t know of a way around this. You could perhaps try testing the default Meta Slider full width option, but I think it might do the same. Worth checking. To do so, go to Theme > Settings > Home and disabled the stretch option. Then, go to Meta Slider, click Advanced and enable 100% width. The height will now be flexible and Meta Slider will be handling the full width aspect.

    Let me know how it goes 🙂

    Hi Andrew,
    thanks again for the quality and speed of your support.
    I did try but it didn’t give any result. Is there a specific format expected in the theme for the header ? maybe I could try cropping my pictures directly to that size ?
    Have a nice day !

    For sure 🙂

    That was the same experience I had. The Meta Slider full width method has the same little re-size jump as the Ultra full width method, is that what you saw?

    That’s the challenge with full width sliders. How large is the display? That’s how wide the image needs to be for a perfect fit. It’s an unknown. For the 23″ display I’m using my little Chrome extension says that the viewport width is 1919px wide, you could try 1920 for your image width.

    yes, that’s the issue I had.
    Will try your hint 🙂

    Unfortunately, it’s a limitation of both the Ultra full width method and the native Meta Slider method. Sorry. Wish I had more for you. Let’s try a wide image that’s the same or greater than your screen/average resolution. It should help.
