I'm having an issue on a website where all of the sliders (there are 4) are being shown before quickly disappearing.

The site URL is:

On investigation this appears to be jQuery or Mootools doing this, but I can't figure out where/why.

Any ideas please?

My guess is a few things:

  • You're importing jQuery multiple times
  • You're site is rather heavy with scripts

The main thing that I'd say could be causing the issue is the entire JS script for the slider is being completely obfuscated by eval():

Meaning is has to un-obfuscate it first before actually executing it.

What can you do?

  • Ensure only 1 instance of jQuery is being imported
  • Whichever extension is calling Mootools...banish it and find an alternative.
  • Find an alternative to the slider extension you're using.
