Can you post or PM me a link to your site? I can't recreate this. I've had my dev server running the slider for over 10 min now, and its still going.

I'd love to try to help you out, but if its not something I can recreate, then I don't know where I need to fix the code.

I must be doing something wrong. Slider seems to be set up correctly but all that shows are blank areas. I've messed a few times with the settings, add ALL forums just to try to get it to work, including VBcms.. nothing.. I'm sure it's not the program, just something I'm doing.
Thoughts?
Edit: Ok, the widget seem to work with custom option and blogs, and CMS articles. However the forum side doesn't seem to pull, even though I have CMS and FORUM setting the same..

Thanks for the help.

How is the image shown in the thread? Is it an attachment or via an IMG tag. The lite version only picks up attachments. The pro version has the ability to use attachments and/or images inside IMG tags. So, with the lite version, if there isn't an attachment, it will default to the default image. With the lite version, the default image is not definable, whereas in the pro version, you can define your own default images for the blogs, threads, and articles independently.

I actually made a few posts and made some images up that were sized to fit the slider so no resizing would be required and when I look at them in the forums they look fine but viewing the same image in the slider they look like a jpg compressed to 40 or 50%. Now this was one test and I have not had time to test it anymore so it might be something else. I know they are not "upsizing" as you say so that is not the issue.
To come back to this issue, I figured out a potential cause to this while working on someone else's slider who was having similar issues. The problem is, if you don't take into account the borders of the slider, and size the image to the size of the slider as specified in the StyleVars, then the image is actually being resized slightly, resulting in a "blurry" or lo-res image. On the user's site I was working on, it ended up that if the slider was sized 12px wider than the actual image, then it would look exactly how it does outside of the slider.

With that said, how the slider handles images will be overhauled in a future release, as I have come up with some further ideas on this, which hopefully will result in better performance as well as better looking images. I don't have a timeline for this fix just yet, but it is definitely in the planning stages.

Hi, I purchased this from your siteabout 12 hours ago, but I've still not received the download. It still says 'Awaiting Authorisation' even though the payment has gone through successfully.

I already contacted you through your site, but have had no reply.

I am not involved with the payment process, but I want to say you should have gotten an email about verifying your Paypal email. Please check you Junk/Spam folder for the email account of your Paypal account.

If this doesn't work, I will also pass information on to the guys in charge.

Just a little note that I replied to your email roughly 15 minutes after you sent it - have you checked your spam folder/ensured *@dragonbyte-tech.com is on your safe sender list?

In future sending a PM or starting a thread on the DBTech forums is the best way to ensure you get a quick reply - especially since posting about Pro products here on vb.org is against the rules, so we can't actually give you support etc on that here

It works "below forum" but not "above forum"
When I say works, it displays things I didn't request, like articles, and blogs, which I clicked off, by hold the control key and selecting which was the only way I could have it not select.
Anyway that's where I stand.
Thoughts?

Thanks
Bill

Just installed on 4.1.11. It has potential, but, slows down my website so bad that it kills MySQL. I get a lot of "mysqlserver has gone away" errors after running it for just a few minutes. I really like it and would pay if you can get around the lag and the sql errors.

Just more for my info, how many items are you loading into the slider. Also, what kind of hosting are you on (shared, VPS, dedicated)? With the next major update, processing should be improved.
