After upgrading to Wordpress 3.1 earlier on, I noticed that the image slider on the frontpage no longer rotates between the various post, it's stuck on the first post out of the four available. I can switch manually using the thumbnails though.
At the same time, the news ticker has gone berserk and is updated rapidly about 2-3 times per second. Both were configured to switch every 7 seconds (7000 milliseconds).
Additionally, I'm not sure if its also due to Wordpress 3.1, but as I tested the site earlier using IE8 (I use Google Chrome usually), I also noticed that the image slider does not animate (usually it fades from one to the other) even when I click the thumbnail to switch manually. It just switches image instantly with no transition effect. On IE8, the ticker doesn't update at all.
