Support » Plugin: Perfect Images + Retina » years after still has validation issues for lazy loading

  • Resolved jynk


    I have the pro version but the contact form on your site keeps crashing my browser!

    Can the lazy loading option please put a smaller thumbnail in the src or have it as an option to avoid validation issues. We have 100+ images on one pages and lazy saves us but the 100+ validations issues do not. I know they ‘might’ not be much of a factor but try telling that to a client who can use an number of validation sites. Just doesn’t look professional!

    Unfortunately, it is the way it is. So-called “Validation services” don’t recognize lazy loading at all; they can’t, because it’s handle by Javascript and they would need to run the website as a human does. The real issue is not the service nor the plugin, it’s actually the importance people give to them. They give pointers, but that’s pretty much it. Check big websites, they are very far from perfect, simply because the best websites are made for human being, not robots 🙂

    About the contact from crashing your server, it’s very strange, I don’t see how it could do that, it’s a standard form handled by the most used form plugin; you should try with another browser or maybe update it? I really doubt it’s a problem of my website. I have checked, but I don’t see how.

    Thanks Jordy – surely being able to designate a smaller sized image in the src would instantly remove these validation issues. Default thumbnail or user selectable.

    And not my server – my browser, latest safari on OSX.

    With what websites do you have validation issues exactly?

    Sorry, I meant browser 🙂 I tried with Safari latest version but I don’t have this issue at all. Sounds like a memory error to me and out of luck it happens on that page, but it could happen on any others. This: uses the same plugin, you could try. But a browser shouldn’t crash, if it does, it means that there is a problem with it. Websites can be just heavy or have an infinite process running, eating all the memory (but it is not the case of that page), but even that, browsers ask you if you want to close it.
