Suggestion about home page:

Postby drag chevette » Fri Feb 20, 2009 1:11 pm

get rid of the column on the left and just use the buttons up top, the double links seem to slow the page down and make OIR the slowest loading page I visit....and I have cable internet.

just a suggestion

The column down the side is just CSS, it might be adding 1 or 2 K total to the download, and even on dialup that's going to be basically impossible to measure.

The thing that is slowing the front page down is the pre-load on the images that slideshow through the center part of the layout. Any kind of high speed connection shouldn't have a problem with that, though.

I guess maybe you are getting a pause due to the outside calls to accuweather that don't seem to be returning the proper data.

Is it the page itself that is slow for you, or is it the actual download of the page that is slow?

Devin,

tested this back to back three times....

the page pops up in about .5 second then starts loading........

and loading....

and loading....

and about 20-30 seconds later you can actually hit a button that will take you somewhere else.

I have cable connection and THIS PAGE is the ONLY page that takes me longer than a few seconds to load up...... :bang:

I didn't mean to sound like I was saying that it is not moving fast for you, I'm just saying that the menuing system isn't the issue, the image loader is where the slowdown is.

Would you mind if I asked which browser you are using?

Try the home page again Drag Chevette, I took about 100k out of the home page by using higher image compression. See if that loads quicker for you. It loads in about 5 seconds for me.
