Lazy Load Images

What you can do to help:

Delays image loading until after the page has rendered, only loads images in the viewport

Last updated

This is an Elgg implementation of the jquery lazy load plugin by Mika Tuupola:

The purpose of this plugin is to delay the loading of images until the page has rendered.  Then images within the browser viewport are loaded on an as-needed basis as the user scrolls.  For long pages this should decrease load times as images way down the page aren't being loaded at the same time.  If a user doesn't scroll down the page this means images aren't being loaded unnecessarily (also saving bandwidth and server resources).

Degrades gracefully for users with javascript disabled.
