Lazy Load Images

Last Update: Oct 19, 2022

This addon is 100% hooks based requiring no source edits to install.

Works with ElkArte: 1.0-1.1


This addon makes all the images “lazy load”. It is common that a website presenting images, some of which will be off screen until the users scrolls down the page. In this case and in order to make the websites load faster, we can use lazy loading where those off screen images are not fetched until such time as they begin to enter the viewport.

In order to do the lazy loading, the Lazy Load Plugin for jQuery is used.
