"Start Slideshow Paused" doesn't stop the slideshow from progressing with any settings I've tested. Is this known to work with any particular setting? I could set it to a very long delay as a workaround, but does this use processing that would be otherwise unnecessary?

Can you click on create new issue in this issue queue and give me as much info as you can from the instructions at the top. Especially number 2.

Thanks. We have inner pages where it was requested to have slides not rotating, but to change on page reload, so I did this by hiding controls + pager, and setting "Start On Last Slide Viewed" (or else every reload gets first slide). "Start Slideshow Paused" does not keep it from rotating. I can't publish the site in development. Here's the js outputted:

jQuery.extend(Drupal.settings, { "basePath": "/", "admin_menu": { "margin_top": 1 }, "viewsSlideshowSingleFrame": { "#views_slideshow_singleframe_main_slide-block_2": { "num_divs": 2, "id_prefix": "#views_slideshow_singleframe_main_", "div_prefix": "#views_slideshow_singleframe_div_", "vss_id": "slide-block_2", "timeout": "90000", "sort": 1, "effect": "fade", "speed": "700", "start_paused": 1, "delay": "0", "fixed_height": "1", "random": "0", "pause": "1", "pause_on_click": "0", "remember_slide": 1, "remember_slide_days": "1", "controls": "0", "pager": "0", "pager_type": "Numbered", "page_hover": 2, "pager_click_to_page": 0, "image_count": "0", "nowrap": "0", "sync": "1", "advanced": "", "ie": { "cleartype": "true", "cleartypenobg": "false" }, "pager_hover": "1" } } });

If you just want to show one random image then it's best to not use views slideshow and just use unformatted and set your number of items to 1 and then in filter set it to global: random

Thanks, that works perfectly (it's *sort* global random).
I love working with Views Slideshow, thank you for this excellent module!

But there is still a matter of starting slideshow paused not working that needs to be fixed and so it is. Thanks
