Forum Background Changed...

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to optimize the forum for fast loading on web browsers regardless of how fast or slow a person's Internet connection is. One of the things I am experimenting with right now is removing the forum background "picture" that had a textured dark earth look and replacing it with just a dark earth color.

Believe it or not, these little changes make a pretty big difference on some web browsers and connections.

I'm not sure I am going to keep it like this or if I will switch back to the textured version.

I noticed it too but also could not finger it out. Looks fine this way too.

It helped on my ipod, and I'm sure it'll help on other portable devices.

Yeah, I had a member ask about it for that very reason so I've been trying to optimize it.

PS: Anyone who is still seeing the remnant of the graphic at the top of the page beneath the logo should do a hard refresh of the page (shift + refresh on Firefox and MSIE) to clear their browser cache.

Anything to speed it up helps. Yeah, living in the boonies has one drawback and that is slow internet.:) But I guess that is off set by being able to shoot on your own property.:);):)

David what is the size of the pic that you were using for the background before? was it a larger image or a smaller image that repeated?

Smaller that repeated. I've been doing this stuff for quite a while now. :hat:

Just curious, I actually liked the image but, I know how it goes with slow internet.

It's not so much the size of the file itself as it is rendering on mobile devices.

Is that a Mark Twain quote?
