Viewing the forum issues



  • Does anyone know if there is a way to automatically load all the images in the forum post instead of them been loaded when you scroll to that area? I find that whenever there is a post with a lot of images the page jumps all over the place as images are loaded at different points. I presume this is to reduce bandwidth, but when I want to go to the last reply it loads them all up anyhow. Does anyone else have the same issue or does it only bother me?



  • @gary-wilkinson it is to save bandwidth and load the page quicker. The issue is that people are uploading large images > the server does resize them however they are still large where it takes a few seconds to load once your browser is in view. Other sites like facebook/twitter get away with this with their crappy compression algorithm.

    This is one of the reasons I create the slideshow for the contests each month. This way you can see all the images at once without missing any.



  • @chip-valecek thanks for explaining chip. It's not been a problem on most pages. Only those that have so many pictures uploaded to it, but the slideshow is a big help.
