Anyone else having LAGG while scrolling on the site? Its only this site since the new theme. Kinda odd

Cleared cache that wasnt the problem... I think its the background image being to big or something

Whatever it is, its just this theme, the old theme is a little twitchy but the mobile one works fine

Yeah, it is a little slow in mobile browsers for some reason, but the old one is as well.

Yeah, I'm not sure much can be done about that. These themes have quite a bit more to them compared to the standard ip board or mobile theme. It makes sense for them to be laggy. That's why the mobile theme exists.

I gotta say I have no lag scrolling here at all. Win7, Chrome, semi-beast pc.

Some of what you saw earlier may be due to the theme still being worked on. I did notice some slow loading earlier but that seems better now.

That's what happens when you set 90% of the page elements with the opacity property -__-. That, and the wall paper takes up a huge hump in the memory believe it or not. Everytime the page scrolls, all browsers (from what I can tell) rerender the page if you have a fixed background image.

My suggestion to whomever is designing the template is to cut back on over using the opacity property. It might help.

So, how do you make things transparent without using opacity?
I am the one who made the theme, and it is my first. I have zero background in this so bare with me I'm learning. :)
However, aside from the one or two in this thread, I have not heard any complaints about speed or lack of.

I'm on a nice quad core machine and I find a few sites and including this one (old theme and new) laggy.

I use chrome and I have no idea why it doesn't like some sites on this machine. I'm currently on windows 8 and it's still laggy

I've tried difference video drivers and even played with gpu acceleration in chrome via about:flags

Might have to switch back to firefox, which I havent used in foreeevveerr.


Edit: I just installed Google Canary (nightly build of chromium I believe) and my lag is gone. Trying to find out the difference in the builds.

Well it looks nice regardless. Most first time themes I've seen almost look like a rainbow. But your color contrast flows perfectly...

Anyway, your opacity is barely the issue - at least for new computers. I'm running a 4-5 year old machine and it renders the site perfectly once I disable your background image. The only way to avoid the lag is to opt out the background image (and you have 2 set).

My suggestion to you is if you don't want people to complain, instead of setting the background image as a fixed position, try doing a repeat-y and see how that looks. Also, you have 2 background images set on the page.

One on your <body id="ipboard_body"> tag and then another one your <div id="content"> tag.

The repeat-y will make the bg scroll with the forum, right?
Cause that's what I don't want. I like how it stays.
As for the 2 bg images, I did not set it up that way, I just put the images in place. How would you fix this? Just remove the bg line from content so it defaults to body?
I seriously am learning as I'm going here. I have no background in this.

Yup, works fine!

If you ever need any help, I work as a web designer (php,html4/5,ajax,etc..) as well as a c++ developer. Just send me a PM if you have any questions.

Blame it on Matt. LOL, well, really though, I use Chrome on my PC and the only time I notice any lag is when scrolling through a page and coming upon one of Matt's posts on the page. It's not just once in a while, it's every post of his. The post comes into view and the scrolling speed slows quite a bit. Continue scrolling until the post is off the screen and it speeds up instantly. It's his signature I'm sure that causes it for me. Every time without fail. No biggie, just wondering if anybody else has noticed it. Sorry Matt. Couldn't resist saying it. :)
