WP-Syntax
[resolved] 1.0 Slow as hell (10 posts)

    The latest version of WP-Syntax is slow as hell. I am barely able to scroll through pages of source code. Is there any way to downgrade the version? Or to switch back to old CSS rules, which apparently worked faster?

    I have the same problem. The update breaks it.

    A link or two that I can check out?

    Here's a link that contains all the previous version.

    I just visited this page:
    http://www.earnforex.com/blog/2009/04/trailing-stop-in-metatrader-4/

    How is the page slow? I visited in both Chrome, IE8, the Android Web Browser and Safari. The page scrolls very fast. Not sure I see the issue.

    Indeed, the problem is showing up only in Firefox (I use 18.0.2). The page becomes slow when the syntax-highlighted code is visible on the screen.

    Yes, it does appear that Firefox has a CSS rendering bug. Although I don't think I would qualify it as being slow. It does "shutter" slightly when scrolling past highlighted code.

    Here's some CSS that you can add to the end of the theme's style.css that'll remove the alternating lines if this is unacceptable to you:

    .wp_syntax td.code {
        background-color: #EEE !important;
        background-image: none !important;
    }

    I'm going to mark this resolved.

    Yeah, it helped. Thank you! Please consider adding it as an option to turn on/off alternating background in further versions.
