Slave Show/Hide Layer not working

Hello.

I have a site (http://www.60SecondMarketer.com) where I’ve stacked images on top of each other so that they appear in sequence when someone visits the page.

The problem is that the stacked images appear only once, even though I’ve set the Sequence Timer to Loop.

Here’s what I’ve done:
• Created a graphic box and put an image in it.
• Created a second graphic box on top of the first and put a different image in it.
• Selected the first graphic box and assigned the Slave Show/Hide Layer action. Settings are Initial: Visible; Restore: Sticky; Slave Group: Indigo; Slave #: 1.
• Selected the second graphic box and assigned the Slave Show/Hide Layer action to it. Settings are Initial: Hidden; Restore: Sticky; Slave Group: Indigo; Slave #: 1.
• Then, I’ve selected the Page and assigned a Sequence Timer action to it. Settings are Speed: 1500; Loop:Yes; Slave Group: 1; Find Slaves: Top; Trigger1:Yes. The rest of the triggers are no.

Again, my main problem is that they change images just once and I’d like them to keep changing every second and a half for as long as the person is on the page.

Thoughts?

Gosh, I was hoping it was that easy. Unfortunately, I tried making them both Initially: Hidden and that didn’t seem to work. (It just made the initial image hidden, then once the action took place, it stayed on the second image.)

Any other thoughts? It seems to be that once the action is executed, it stops looping, even though I’ve got the page action set to Loop.

Not sure why it’s not working. I have it working on one of my pages http://www.windowcleanuk.com/services.html

You can always send me the freeway document and I can take a further look

Hi, Nathan. Thanks for your help. I saw your site and, sure enough, it’s working great.

I ended up deleting the graphic boxes and re-creating everything. I should’ve done that from the start and saved you and everyone else some time because it seems to have fixed the problem.

In any case, thanks for your help. I appreciate it!
