Pictures on the Forum Are Loaded Slow

Post by prince_charming on April 27th 2011, 8:47 am

I have received a lot of complaints about my forums are being loaded extremely slow, specifically the pictures of the forums.

I could not figure out the reason of this problem but it is "chasing" away my members because of the slow speed of my forum.

My forum address is http://worldbeauties.forumotion.com

I hope you can help me figure out what the reasons for this.

Some personal Notes:
As for me, I am loading the forum quite ok although when I get into the topics, the pictures of the topic are loaded slow too. So I don't know what to do with this as well as the reasons why. Hope you can help me because this (like I said) are not very pleasant for my members and they are not accessing my forum anymore

Hi,

Please do not post in bold, it is reserved for the moderation team.


Regarding your issue, for users with slow connection it is normal that your forum is slow to load as you have really a lot of heavy images.

I suggest also uploading all your images to the same image host, and try compressing them in .JPG with an image editor program.
The best solution IMO would be to try and delete a few from your index.

I'm so sorry for the bold thing...I dun know about that

I believe the main reasons are the slow connection however I don't think all the members have slow connection cuz I received the complain from almost every single member on the forum.

And most of the picture on my forums are .JPG and .PNG so I don't think the problem is caused by images type

Beside deleting from the index, do you have any other thoughts about other reasons beside this ?

Thanks so much for your help

tell those who are having problems to clear out their pc ,cache. Could be them.
I also agree with typo(who dares to disagree) that images can/will slow down a site. His suggestions are dead on. Very good

yeah I did tell them to clean out their pc, cache but almost 100% people on there are having the problems. Besides, I also clean my pc, cache but I am having that problem too even I am the Admin. And I already reduced to the minimum amount of pictures. I wonder if there're any other reasons?

I took a peek and although you're not going to like hearing this, I have to again agree with typo, being you have a tremendous amount of images displayed. That would be my first hunch as to your trouble. in addition, many of your forum images like the forum icons are 2x-3x larger than they should be on average.
Beautiful site, but Wow!!

Thanks so much for taking your time and visit my site and all comments are welcome to enhance the value of it. I appreciate a lot for your wonderful suggestion. I will try to once again, re-format all the pictures to its minimal size and then let you guys know what happen next. This may take some time Razz
