    Hello people,

    is there a way to load product categories before all product images in the homepage?

    I mean, my client wants a hundred products in the homepage, and they take a while to load… just then the categories load. What I need is that the categories load at launch, so the user won’t need to wait for the entire page and products to load before they know what the categories are.

    Thanks in advance,

    regards,

    Flavio

    Hi Flavio,

    Please install this plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lazy-load/) . It loads only the images which are on the user’s screen first and only then starts loading images off screen. This would be the easiest solution.

    This is a similar solution as above (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lazy-widget-loader/) but for very slow widgets, to make sure the widget loads last.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Thanks Nick, I installed the plugin but didn’t noticed any difference, actually… maybe I’m missing some configuration, I don’t know.

    I’ll look further for another solution, but I believe using plugins may be the best way, right?

    Thanks again for the help, Nick!

    Regards

    Hey fla_dechen,

    Yep, in that kind of situation where you are loading a huge amount of photos a plugin is going to be the most simple route followed by attempting to mod the theme, which with this situation could be fairly complex.

    Hi,

    I concur with Devin. Not sure why it did’nt work I just tried http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bj-lazy-load/ on a site with many photos and it worked great. In the plugin’s settings please try loading the javascript in header and another time in footer and see if there is a difference. First though, you should empty your cache.

    Thanks,

    Nick
