I've added the CSS-Tricks anythingSlider to a page - it works correctly in Firefox and Chrome but in IE8, it starts on the last element instead of the first. This is a known bug apparently - Googling got me this...
When AnythingSlider is initialized on a hidden element, the last slide will show instead of the first. This is because a scrollLeft value cannot be applied to a hidden element. So either initialize it with visibility hidden, or if that isn't possible, then set the scrollLeft when it becomes visible:
var s = $('#slider1').data('Anythi
s.$window.scrollLeft( s.$window.width() + s.easingMargin ); // may not work if resizeContents is false (width will vary)
which demonstrates the problem. I've obviously not done it correctly because I get an error '$window is null or not an object'
I've selected 250 points not because it looks like a huge problem but simply because I've got a client who needs this on Monday morning. BTW as you'll see from the site, the order of the slide is very important, so they must display in the correct order.
