How do I use?

After you activated the plugin, the plugin’s settings page will be available in Settings > Border Loading Bar in your administration area of WordPress.

The plugin settings are divided into sections, and each setting has precise instructions about what they do. Some adjustments will not be displayed if not needed. Browse through the settings from top to bottom.
Before you can see Border Loading Bar running on your Web site, you must activate your operation in the configuration page Settings > Border Loading Bar. This happens so that you can make all needed adjustments before displaying it openly to the public.
It is recommended that you enable the Test Mode located in the first section called General Options of the configuration page for the plugin, so that you are the only one that can see the Border Loading Bar running on your web site and can carry out any adjustments with comfort.

Activate Border Loading Bar for the Public

To ensure that all users can see the operation of the Border Loading Bar on your website, you must ensure that it is enabled on the configuration page for the plugin and the Test Mode is turned off. In this way, all users can view Border Loading Bar in operation.

How does it work?

Most of the time, the websites have a large quantity of images or they have a large size, which causes the load time of your page to be much slower. Border Loading Bar is responsible for representing that load time on a progress bar, ideal for users who need to show proof of the time that it takes for the page to load.
Border Loading Bar not only represents the load time of the images, if not also the rest of the contents of a page, thus making more accurate representation of the load time.
