Support » Plugin: Lazy Load » [Plugin: Lazy Load] Will this work on remotely hosted images?

  • Resolved wtawta


    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.

  • OK, I think I may have figured out how to implement what I’m trying to do but I don’t think it’s working. I made a short video showing the way I have it set up now.

    If someone could take a look and let me know if or what I missed I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    Your attributes are reversed. The 1×1 pixel should be the src attribute and the actual image should be the data-lazy-src attribute.
