    Supersized 3.0, really excited to use so I dropped it in a site I am working on and it looks great… only one problem, I can’t figure out how to stop the slideshow on the last slide. It just loops and loops. I have been at this for over 6 hours…

    Any help would be a lifesaver, I am at deadline and getting nervous I won’t be able to figure this out in time. Thanks for reading this!
