Navigating to page containing ion-slides causing the swipe behaviour to stop working


I created two pages with identical sliders. (say HomePage and Page1Page) I place Navigation links to the other in each (via navCtrl.push)

Now while the slider works well (that is responds to both swipe and clicks on pager) on the HomePage, it does not respond correctly to swipe on the Page1Page. Why? What am I doing wrong?


Going back to the HomePage from the Page1Page causes the slider to stop working there too!

All help/ideas appreciated.
