    Hello Kriesi et al!

    My client http://bit.ly/V4rm1L has been loving their site; it’s been easy to navigate, manage on their own, and they’ve needed little support from me until now. Thank you for that!

    However, they’ve added too much content to their site and with more than 50 portfolio items showing, it appears like this http://bit.ly/ZhlOcJ

    So I went searching your great forum for some alternatives:

    First I thought Paginating that front page might solve the problem. But it gives me a new one – no sort across the entire portfolio due to an ajax limitation.

    But seeing as how the sort is crucial to my clients, I guess that’s not a great solution.

    If I limit the portfolio load to 52 items, the page loads ok, but means there are a great number of portfolio items that don’t make the sort still.

    I know I can add individual portfolio items in my Menu as a drop down, which is what I’ll likely do, but isn’t there another way?

    How can a site like http://www.thestylejunkies.com get so many images to load without it killing their site? I know they’re based on the theme SizeMttrs: http://themeforest.net/item/size-mttrs-responsive-portfolio/full_screen_preview/1559545

    Can’t wait to hear what y’all come up with!

    Hi codaqueen,

    The site you referenced is using a lazy loaders so the images aren’t loaded until the user actually views them (or is just about to view them).

    I can’t say one way or another if it would be easily implementable with the theme but I believe there are a number of plugins that do that kind of functionality as a drop in service. The biggest

    You could also look into a caching plugin so that you aren’t doing a big database query each load.

    HI Devin,

    Thanks for the reply, but it looks like there is an incomplete thought…

    The biggest….. is what? ;)

    Oops, sorry about that. I was going to say the biggest performance fix is usually getting images optimized but then I checked the site and they look pretty good on size.
