Support » Plugin: Elements Plus! » Preloader sometimes gets stuck

  • I tried to include the Elements Plus Preloader on the gallery page of my site. It seemed to work fine, but I had a report from my client that when he tried to load the page, the preloader got stuck. I have therefore removed it until I understand the issue.

    Under what circumstances might the preloader get stuck?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi,
    It seems the onload event that is required to trigger in order the preloader to hide is not triggered or takes too long(large images, scripts not loading correctly).
    Can you enable it temporary so I can check this out? Perhaps in a testing enviroment

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply. I have set up a duplicate of the website here and enabled the preloader on the gallery page: http://michaelp183.sg-host.com/gallery/

    Maybe it’s something to do with the fact that I have added some JavaScript to enable left and right swipe gestures?

    Hi there
    I works all the time on my end.
    But, you should consider adding a lazy loading functionality for your images. It takes a lot of time to load them all, and the preloader still works when images are loading.

    Thanks for looking into it. I could not get it to fail either, but my client said this:

    “I’ve just tried to load the WVAT gallery page on my laptop and all I get is the preloader and the gallery doesn’t open. On my ipad I get the same or the message: ‘Can’t open this page’.

    So I am a bit reluctant to use it without understanding why.

    Hello,

    I am experiencing this on the latest Firefox (89) only (Windows 10 and macOS Catalina). I do not experience it Brave (Windows 10 and macOS Catalina), Edge or Safari. Sometimes a page will display as expected after showing the preloader, but then subsequent pages will not display once it has failed. Exiting the browser will sometimes solve the problem – until it inevitably re-occurs. Disabling the plugin solves all page loading issues.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there @khlondon
    Please open a new ticket with your issue here https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/elements-plus/ (http://i.prntscr.com/LdXpvnS-QRO1qFQMyxBf5g.png)
    Forum rules strictly forbid hijacking on other support threads I am afraid.
    Plus, I strongly believe this is not related to the original thread.

    Please share a URL with your site also, so I can check this out. Also, please try this: Since this seems like the load event never fires, install jQuery Migrate plugin and from its settings select the jQuery 1.x.x legacy version to load, clear your browser’s cache, and ping me if this occurs again.
