Support » Plugin: Display Featured Image for Genesis » The backstretch image takes too long to load

  • Hi Robin, how are you?

    I’ve been using the plugin for a while and I love it. Thanks

    I have a little problem, as you told me once the image above title takes too long to load because it waits til all the content is loaded and then it shows up. This is good practice in web programming and I understand that. However, the result when somebody goes to one of my posts is a white screeen for about 2-3 seconds until the image above title shows up.

    What about setting a rule which gives some preferences? Like loading the text first, the image above title after that, and finally the rest of the images on the post… What do you think? Could you kindly provide me with some code to do this change please?

    Thank you very much!

    You might look into a lazy load plugin option, which should do what you want in terms of the text/content loading before the images. I found this blog post which reviews several lazy load plugin options.

    Otherwise, one thing you might consider is adding a dark color as the background on the .big-leader element, which would allow users to see your post title even while they’re waiting for the scripts to load.

    Hi Robin, thank you very much for your quick reply!

    Well, these lazy load plugins affect the core, but not the plugin itself.. so the image keeps loading in 3 seconds..

    I also tried adding the black background, but I it doesn’t work.. it takes a few seconds to load (showing white screen), after that it loads the black background, and finally the image.

    I even hired two web developers and they couldn’t help me… I really don’t know how to find a solution.

    Any other idea? Thanks
