    loading of images in a page

    luadke Level 1
      Hi,

      Just wondering if someone can help me when it comes to images loading in a page. Is there code which tells the browser not to display anything until the page is fully loaded.
      problem page - here
      also here

      thanks

          Not really. You can kludge it by masking the page with a covering,
          positioned container, and only hiding it when the page loads, but that's a
          pretty cheesy approach.

          Your real problem is that this very very simple page fragment ALREADY
          CONTAINS 69 images!

          21.2K 1 HTML/Text
          52.7K 1 Flash Object
          8.0K 1 JavaScript File
          59.9K 69 Images
          142.0K Total size
          72 HTTP requests

          And, it's already 142 K!

          There's worse news for you - your Flash banner is not working properly
          (flash/banner4/banner4.swf), and to add insult to injury, your page is going
          to fly apart at the slightest provocation (<!-- fwtable
          fwsrc="BannerDropShadow.png) - read this -

            thanks for the reply,

            I know about the flash - think I can sort that out fine.

            When it comes to layout, i've got really into using fireworks (copying the html from there and pasting it into DW. I just like the flexibility of Fireworks. Do you think there is a way I can stay with Fireworks but also make the workflow simpler, cutting down on size etc...?

              To add to that. I did want to make this site so that a certain part only needs to be loaded once (the banner and left side). What is the correct terminology for this? sorry if it already exists in the forum

                F1 - DW Templates or Server-side-includes.

                  Ok, thanks with that.

                  Still would be grateful if some one could help me out with;

                    This is something that new users often ask. Before we can answer, we need to know what problem are you hoping to solve by doing this?
