Loading Screen How-To

  • I have no idea where to even start with this…

    I want to setup a custom ‘loading’ page/screen for when a user signs up for multisite. I am using Gravity Forms for the site registration, and the new blog is copied from a template site using WP Replicator. The problem is that the template site is fairly large, so creating the new site takes 20-30 seconds so for that time the screen is just blank while the process loads.

    How can I go about setting up a loading screen/page to display while the site is being created so users don’t think the screen is frozen? I have seen this on many sites I use, but have no idea how to set this up with wordpress (or gravity forms?). Help is sincerely appreciated here because I am at a loss.

    I would just add a .gif

    Do you know of anyway to perhaps display a textbox too(or lightbox, as I have one installed I could just execute with php)?

    I figure that way I could just have a note saying ‘if you click the “back” or “refresh” button all the polar bears will die’ or something
