Prevent images from displaying while loading with AnythingSlider

AnythingSlider is just another jQuery slider effect, except we can embed any content as it uses a semantic unordered list HTML (5) structure.

My recent client wanted a mixture of HTML, videos and images, which means you get the nasty flash of the UL elements whilst your browser renders the window. Apparently its called Flash Of Unstyled Content (or FOUC). Whatever. Its called really annoying to me. So here is a bit of code that should be included in the default anythingslider.css but isn’t for some reason.

Find the #slider reference in your anythingslider.css or wherever the CSS is.

Add in;

[codesyntax lang=”css”]
overflow-y: auto;
overflow-x: hidden
