When board index initially loads, first item in newsfader fades quicker than fading delay setting.  All items fade correctly after that.  Any way to fix it?

Apart from rewriting the newsfader that was originally written 18 years ago, doubt it.

I'd speculate that the timer that runs it starts counting too early so that it does trigger at the correct interval (default 5 seconds) but that everything else hasn't quite loaded so it glitches such that it has whatever's left out of the 5 seconds before moving on.

If that's what it is, complete rewrite required to change how it triggers, when it triggers and on what cycle.

Ok, thanks.  Maybe we'll just place a shorter item first.
