    It seams like using the fullscreen slider on the homepage with “Attached Media” will load all the images attached to the site at once. This is okay while browsing the site with a desktop/laptop with a great internet connection. But I get serious problems with mobile devices like the iPad. Loading all at once means 140MB of data loading (400 pics) before the webpage can be used.
    Is there an option somewhere in the code to just load the needed files on demand and not all at once beforehand?
    Thanks for your support!

    Hi Raphael,

    I do not recommend loading up 400 images on a single page as it will create a massive strain on your server, bandwidth and the users computer.

    Currently lazy load is not built into the theme, but you can test this out using the Lazy Load plugin here.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Tom
    Thanks for your reply.
    Sadly it didn’t work.
    If you start browsing the website (homepage has the fullscreen slider with 400 attached media) it still loads all the data directly.
    The Lazy Load plugin didn’t change this behaviour of the slider. It worked on normal pages but not in combination with the fullscreen slider.
    Any more advice or can this be fixed with a paid customization order?
    Thanks for your help!
