Help needed with setTimeout function

Posted on 2015-01-09

My website uses the responsive image slider from slippry.com. On the same page, I want to add a setTimeout function that will delay a modal from appearing. Separately, both work fine, however there seems to be a conflict which I can't identify when both are used.

$(document).ready(function() {
// This is what's used to call the slider:
    jQuery('#slider').slippry({
        adaptiveHeight: false,
        controls: true,
        pause: 8000,
        autoDelay: 5000
        });
       

// This is where I setTimeout:
        setTimeout(function() {
          $('#signUpModal').modal('show');
        }, 2000);

});

Any help figuring out what's going on would be greatly appreciated.

There will always be a conflict when there is more than one function using a timeout.  You could try a setInterval and see if that helps, otherwise you need to either kill one of the timeout functions; consolidate them; or convert one to use CSS transitions; or change the design to something that works.

Not sure what you're doing wrong as this works ok for me: http://jsbin.com/xuwoce/1/edit?html,js,output

I assume you're using bootstrap for the modal?

Thank you Rob, for setting up a test page. I didn't even know the jsbin.com site existed - it's pretty nice.

Utilizing what you put together I was able to track down the source. Turns out there was another script on the page that I had missed entirely, which was causing the problem.
