Fullscreen Slider not preloading carousel images

Here's the thing:

If you use the fullscreen slider and the next row is using a background image/video it is preloaded and slides in smoothly.
BUT if the next slide is using a carousel you don't have the sliding in effect, as the images only appear after the row is fully in view.

I guess it's clear what I describe but you can also see it here (work in progress): http://web136.s163.goserver.host/benroth.info-wordpress/home/
The rows that work correctly, use background images instead of the carousel.

I guess this could be called a bug, or is there a simple fix I'm not seeing? Lazy loading on/off doesn't do it.
Thank you very much for your help.

Shop related questions and issues

gridder and product page

Dear @Richard

thanks for the reply.

The post is about the possibility of creating/editing a single product with the Gridder as one can do when creating a project or a page. It would just provide a more flexible way of showing the content of each product instead of being constrained to the template way of showing a product. Just exactly why one buys the template - due to being able to "design" each page or project with the Gridder.

Hope I managed to explain it.

Thanks for the info regarding the access to the gridder on the "shop" Page though

Full screen Slider / Doesn't work with first full image


It happens when I go into a project. If the first image is full screen, I cannot slide to the next one ( the row doesn’t appears). It is just working if I click on first, it zooms and then, slides to the next one.

You can see the problem in the following link :

3-tiered dropdown menu

Is it possible to have a 3-tiered dropdown menu? Meaning, once you hover the mouse over the main menu item, the first level of sub-items show up, and then on one of those you can hover and additional options then pop up?

I have sub items input this way into the menu editor, but when using the code I listed below to enable the dropdown feature, they all show up at once instead of the third-tier items remaining unseen until I hover over their parent category. So basically I want to hover over "work" and then my subcategories show up, and when I hover over "VISUAL", "PORTRAIT" "FASHION", & "PERSONAL WORK" show up off to the right. Right now I have the below code used to enable the drop-down menu, but it makes everything show up at once when you hover over "work" (including the visual sub-items, which show up on top of everything so it's very messy).

nav.primary .sub-menu{
display: none;
position: absolute;
left: 0;
top: 30px;
background-color: rgba(255,255,255,0.9);
padding: 25px;
border: 0px solid grey;
nav.primary .sub-menu li{
display: block;
.menu-item:hover .sub-menu{
display: block;
