I am using the free wordpress theme itheme2. The theme is fabulous and I absolutely love the slider feature.
However, I found an issue reported by multiple visitors - when the home page loads all the images in the slider show for a few seconds, while the page is still loading. Post that only 5 are accustomed in the slider and the slider is resized. This happens for a longer duration when the connection is a slow one and the home page looks awkward.
Can you make the slider pictures (other than the 5 shown) load in the background and do not show while the page is still loading?
Another request related to features of iTheme2 - is it possible to slide 5 posts at a time rather than only one?
The blog I need help with is oldpapyrus.wordpress.com.
