This is my test gallery: http://www.fotoetude.com/?portfolio=masonry-portfolio-example-flexible
Please, comment the following problems with showing of the photos in the Flexibly Masonry gallery, I have been made one of this for testing. Please, see a few screenshots below:
The result of speed-testing of my internet connection is here: http://fotoetude.com/images_for_support/speed_test.jpg
When I open this gallery and scroll down, the new sets of Images are loaded rather slowly. And even more - the full size background gallery doesn't work automatically. I must push the "next" button every time in below slider's control.
The flickr galleries work much more rapidly.
How is it possible to increase the comfort of looking of the photos in the Flexibly Masonry gallery?
The next problem is the counter of photos in the lightbox, which is using of the Flexibly Masonry gallery. When the visitors open the light box, they look there only the small number of photos. If they want to look all photos in gallery, they must scroll and scroll down more and more. It is so boring. How is it possible to be avoid of this moment? Is it possible to do this: when a visitors open the lightbox and push the "start" button there, the number of all photos appears there, and they will able to look all photos to the end of the photostream, at the same time with preloading of all images?
I have already raised this issue before of buying of the Flashlight theme, but I could not imagine how it works slowly. Hope, these are the issues of adjustment of theme only, because the example of the Flexibly Masonry gallery on Themeforest site works reasonably (but there are 40 items, not so much).
Please, advice a little.
