Sorry about bumping an old thread, but i've the same Issue and see no way to fix it.
Succesfully customized smooth slider to work with a customer wp 3.0.4/atahualpa 3.64 site
, and noticed the image fade/rotation stops after a couple minutes in the homepage with the smoothslider on.
After reading this thread I replaced the rotation code at http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=6921
with the current one, but nothing changed.
Is there a way to fix this?
Is there some other featured/choosen content slider plugin available i'm not aware of? (tried featured content slider but didn't like the output)
Any hint will be appreciated.
