[Plugin: jQuery Image Lazy Load WP] Broken in WP 3

Viewing 7 replies - 1 through 7 (of 7 total)
  • Must confirm the issue, WP 3.0, loads images anyway, then replaces them with grey placeholder. Which means it’s not working.

    But it seems like the problem with the jQuery plugin, not just the WP plugin. Anybody knows any alternative?

    you can just insert the jquery itself, which is very easy.

    all the plugin was doing was inserting 3 lines into your header, nothing fancy or codey.


    once you download the files from there just insert this into your header, using your own location for the lazyload.js and the grey.gif (or whichever image you choose):

    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
     <script src="jquery.lazyload.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
          $(function() {
                 placeholder : "grey.gif",
                 effect      : "fadeIn",
                 threshold : 0

    @schaefermic – can you give an example of page where it actually works?

    I was going to mention Mashable but it is broken there too. The images fade in but they are all pre-loaded.

    Has there been any development in this issue? I’m trying to speed up my site, but I also found that the images are pre-loaded with this plugin and WP 3 (tested by loading a page, disconnecting internet, then scrolling to the bottom of the page where the images are – yes, they fade in. Same happens on Mashable).

    Any ideas of other plugins that truly delay the loading of below the fold images for improved page speed?

    THIS WORKS – on first loading like a Mashable:


    Why? Please Help Us!

    My issues with this is that I had to remove some money making ads on the sidebar because the plugin prevented it from showing and now I discover that my gravatar is also behind the gray gif image.


    Any help out there? Thanks in advance I really appreciate it.
