page background refresh, can I stop it?

I have what might be 2 questions.  I'm using the apycom jqmenu on my web pages and when I select a menu item and go to another page, the menu highlight just goes back to home and does not stay on the selected menu item and I suspect that part of my problem might be the whole page seems to be doing a full refresh where the background flashes white, then redraws the background and so on.  In an earlier version of my site with a different menu, the back ground did not refresh like this.  So what is causing the background image to redraw, and how can I prevent it when changing pages.  The background image is the same for all pages.  Thanks.

    What's the URL to your problem page?

    In which browsers are you seeing this Flash of Unstyled Content (aka FOUC)?

    I'm not seeing it in Firefox.  But it may help if you reduce the size of your background-image from 900+ KB to something better suited to the web, under 100 KB.


    I would also suggest consolidating CSS code into an external CSS file and linking your Template to the external stylesheet.  This will save load time.

    If your persistent menu indicator isn't working, something is wrong with your code.

    Validate your Template code & fix reported errors.
