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 283.45 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 GifMagic.com and got this optimized version which looks pretty good to me, it reduced the size of the pic down to 384.79kb... 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
