FAQ

Do i need to modify my website or plugin to make it work on my custom theme?

No, this plugin can be used without any modifications or requirements. It´s using general tags for images, background images, iframes and videos.

How does it work?

Elements that are most slowing the page load are removed and added separately depending on user´s journey.

Does it support ads services?

Unfortunately Ad services like Google Adsense and similiar causing iframe blinking when scrolling. Please use Skip parent element option for ads.

Can i use embed elements?

Yes, embed elements are OK, but there could be a random bug when using embed Google maps. All images below Google map might be loaded earlier.

Why is plugin using !important priority for background-images?

This is used only when Visual Composer is active on your website, to override VC´s styles.

Reviews

Best Lazy Load plugin

El mejor sin duda, el único que me mantiene el marcado HTML de las imágenes responsivas, los demás que he probado solo mantenían el src y eliminaban el srcset. Lo único que le echo en falta es mantener la proporción de las imágenes que no son visibles para evitar los saltos de contenido.

Not progressive

This isn’t “progressive” loading – the image does not show a blurred/optimised version of itself while the full resolution image is being loaded. The image must still be fully loaded before the user sees anything. Also there’s a broken image in the menu backend.

This is what is meant by “progressive” loading:
