Bit of a noob question here but I am not a coder...
I have a blog post that displays several (50) thumbnails of images that are hosted on a few other 3rd party sites. The load time on this page is slow because the actual images are large and must completely load because I am displaying the thumbs like this...
<A HREF="http://www.3rd-party-site-image.jpg"><IMG HEIGHT=100 WIDTH=100 SRC="http://www.3rd-party-site-image.jpg"></A>
...rather than making thumbnails for the images and hosting the thumbs locally. As you can see I have a link to the actual image too, in case that matters.
My questions are:
1. can I use this plugin the way I am displaying the images on my site? 2. Will it help my load times?
3. And, if so, how would I actually implement this?
Thanks in advance, you help is appreciated.
