Hi Sylvia,

I'm guessing the reply screen is the slowest of your pages, due to the many animated smileys. When there are animations on a page, the browser has to re-render each frame of each animation, which will slow down any page.

Re: Slow Board


Hi Sylvia,

Your board's background image is 566.9 kb, which is more than 1/2 megabyte. Since it's an animation with two frames and isn't optimized, the browser has to keep re-loading [sign in to see URL] kb (more than 1/4 mb, the size of each frame) over and over again. If you use a non-animated jpg instead, it will only need to load one frame, one time, plus the file size will be smaller.

Re:


Hi Pitszal,

I ran your background image through ][sign in to see URL] and got this optimized version which looks pretty good to me, it reduced the size of the pic down to [sign in to see URL]... That should help...

Re: Slow Board


That's a much smaller file size, and definitely worth a shot. I fear that it might still be too large for some people, but it can't hurt to try. emoticon

Thanks, Rick. emoticon
