Website 'blinks' or 'flickers' when changing pages

  • I have created a site through wordpress, it is designed on a black background and when changing pages the site and content seems to ‘blink’ or ‘flicker’ to white for a second before displaying the new page.

    Is there a common reason that can cause something like this within wordpress? I thought it could be page loading time but it seems to happen with almost any pages on the site, some with just a small image and text.

    Is there anything that can be done through wordpress to make the site more smooth, without such a jump between pages?

    Would appreciate and advice or experience you may have with this issue.

    Thanks

    James.

    Unless you provide a link to a page demonstrating the problem, no one will be able to offer much in the way of assistance.

    oh yeah sorry totally forgot to provide a link to the site:

    thanks!

    You mean the flash of white?

    That’s your browser downloading stuff. It happens. Either make your site load faster (caching, minimization, etc) or get a faster server.

    But it happens everywhere.

    My site does the same thing. I have a custom background and each time I change pages, the original background shows for a second before the custom background takes over. It was not like this until recently and I believe it may be caused by a plugin.

    jameskelly – I checked your page out and it did not seem to flicker. Have you fixed the problem since? If so, what do I need to do?

    FWIW, my site is http://www.filmjackets.com/current/

    You can see the black and white striped background first, then the leather texture takes over.

    Rick, continue with your thread for support with your issue.
    Creating me-too posts doesn’t help the original poster.
