At times there really is nothing to say besides the obvious. Hopefully that statement soon won't make sense because this blip will have been resolved. The whole episode will be no more than a vaguely recalled speed bump in a bigger adventure.
I've done everything I can think of and the works in progress show is still a blank white space where the photos go. I guess it's just going to be malfunctioning until I can figure it out or just give up and delete it. In the meantime I'll keep rearranging and poking around at it and trying to get answers and results.
Hmmmmm. Just as I clicked preview the window displayed with both the new and old (code should match, though) WIP slideshows along with both FO shows that are currently there. However, as I saw at times last night the timing of the WIP versions is off. If it isn't completely blank, it's doing what I just saw: flashing a blur, just a brief fuzzy gray rectangle that never materializes into an image and fades out as soon as it appears. So maybe the issue is timing???
Added above paragraph and clicked preview and now I see 2 working shows each of FOs and WIPs. I know it isn't me, lol. I guess I'm just going to have to live with this for a while... Fortunately, since I'm pretty much the only one here, the oddness of it will likely go unnoticed.
Just for fun, I'm seriously considering how to go about changing the size of those items anyway. Surely it's not the time to do anything extra when just the basics aren't 100%, but why would I leave well enough alone? I've been sucked into the underlying gobbledegook of the working parts. That's a clear invitation for tinkering! I've always been the kind of person who knows just enough to be really dangerous that way. I can embrace this aspect, especially when I'm being provoked by items changing and functioning by their own whims. That's how I've managed to get a lot of skill and understanding in a range of areas. I'm not the least bit afraid of replacing sinks, faucets, light fixtures, and even had the old washing machine and dryer set in pieces and then working again several times. I am fearless this way. I will prevail.
