The old post was closed: indexhibit.org/forum/thread/17750/

I was wondering if there was any solution to the load time issue here, or any other formats that were similar to thickbox. I want to use multiple, full screen pages of the visual index format - but the increased load time (20-30s) and the fact that it simply does not load with any more than 20 images is frustrating.

Please let me know if there is anything to do about this.

Page in question = gregorycartelli.com/project/x

It looks like: indexhibit.org/forum/thread/19798/ fixed the issue, but I can't figure out how from his page.

Then you didn't see this thread: indexhibit.org/forum/thread/19694/
Just remove the sleep commands, as Vaska suggests (ndxzsite>plugin>plugin.jxs_ndxzbox.php for the Overlay effect)

Removing the sleep commands or setting them on 0 just shortens the overlay load time but not the thumbnail load time when they are in "uniform height". How can this be solved? Loading of the thumbnails takes quite long.

Maybe it's a server issue?

After all as far as I can recall (and I maybe mistaken) uniform height was still a beta version for the Visual Index format.

But can you post a url with a slow loading page?

Sorry for not being more clear in my original post - its the load time of the thumbnails with uniform height that is causing me issues.

A link is here: gregorycartelli.com/project/…

My load time comes in at 8 seconds now, down from 20 earlier. Any tips with this issue would be greatly appreciated, but I will change the overlay load time as well!

Thanks-

Sorry to keep on double posting, but now I've removed all sleep() commands and the overlay is failing to work...

Something you edited breaks the script maybe?

ps. You have 10 images in the url you posted above. I checked one of them and I think that 954Kb for one image is way too much - gregorycartelli.com/files/gimgs/…

Here's my page, it also has long load times for the thumbnail page:
meikepeters.com/index.php/projects/malta/
Are there any other possible ways to speed it up?

I had the same problem with overlay after removing the sleep commands, I had to re upload the script files via ftp for it to work again. I edited the sleep commands to (0) offline and uploaded them and then the overlay worked quicker but it had no effect on the thumbnail load time. My pictures are around 300kb.

The more thumbnails you have the longer they will take to load...

When I change the setting from grid "uniform heights" to e.g. grid "left/ soft" the thumbnail load time is much quicker so it must be a "uniform height" issue, what could that be?

The uniform heights thing is not finished - very experimental. The problem, most likely, is that it's regenerating the thumbnails each time instead of simply using the previously generated thumbnail. Easy enough to resolve when I can get to it...I think.

When do you think you could fix the problem?

Can somebody send me the format and it's files - I'm not even sure where to find it around here...
