    1. I just noticed that a YouTube videoclip that I embedded several months ago, seems jerky I played it. It never was before.

    So far, I also have 3 different WordPress slideshows, each embedded in their individual posts. Here’s a recent sample post with non-Java script WordPress slideshow.

    Although the slideshows run automatically non-Java script, I’m just wondering if it’s possible the performance of certain blog viewing features, would be affected by having too many different slideshows running automatically in the future.

    2. I also would like to know if a blog post is Archived, does the automatic slideshow “stop” temporarily until I retrieve/open up the post?

    The blog I need help with is thirdwavecyclingblog.wordpress.com.

    I’m pushing this back up on the list. It’s been 10 hrs. waiting for a response and there have been people awake in Eastern North America.

    I’m on the Pacific Coastal time zone.

    The reason why I need to know is that I predict for the 3rd blog that I will need to set up will most likely incorporate YouTube and perhaps some short slideshows in different posts.

    Yes, absolutely. The more rich media you have on a page or in a post, the more interference like this you’re going to get. If you’ve got your blog set to display three posts at a time, then maybe add a YouTube only every three posts, so there’s only ever one on the page.

    Thank you. This helps when I plan the 3rd blog and meanwhile not get carried away with existing blogs.
