I am not sure if this was addressed before, I see a pattern of it in several threads. When pics are loaded from external source, they get scaled down to a certain size, which works fine. But whenever you visit the thread this process repeats and causes some major lag in splashing the page. Maybe there is a flag to be set in CP or on admin page where it caches the images even if it's coming from external website? Or maybe disabling resizing altogether once it is done initially? Just throwing ideas out there...

people would need to resize their own picts which can be done on photobucket or I prefer paint.net myself.

But if they don't resize your going to get HUGE picts which to me is a bit (really) annoying. So I'm glad the site resizes picts.

Lots of people don't know how to resize picts or don't want to take the time to do it. Or if they are uploading from mobile not all phones can scale down picts on it.

But maybe admin can make changes to fix it..

This is not what I am talking about, Krissy. Every forum software resizes pics and this is the right way of doing it. The problem is in how this pics are presented and the overall experience when you are trying to scroll a page with 4 or more pics loading.

Oooooh I wonder if it would help to resize them smaller rather than the 800 height they are being resized to now. But given my experience with forums, that the picts are just going to take time to be resized unless people are willing to do it themselves.

I'm not exactly sure how else you'd imagine it would be done? the photo loads, then the resizer runs if it's larger than 800px and gets resized.

Every forum I've ever been on loads the thread first with the large images then the resizer kicks in.

It does work like that in every forum but there is no lag, I was thinking it's cached somewhere on the server. Is it?

no, because it's ran by client-side javascript, not server-side.

I forgot to also point out in my earlier reply that resizing every photo that is larger than X pixels by the server would put A LOT of load on the server itself.

Then,we should kindly ask members to resize their pics,before uploading them here.. 800 X 600 should be the maximum size,and its also,the perfect one.
