Hi,

This is my second modification and I hope you like it.

What it does: It lets your members and your visitors feel that your site or forum is very fast when they access it. It is just like a trick only not really it does speed up your forum.

Version of vB: It works with ALL versions: vB1, vB2, vB3.0.x, vB3.5.x, vB3.6.x, vB3.7.x, vB3.8.x, and any version in future. More than this, you can use it for any simple website. :smoke:

Time to install: ~ 1 sec.

How to install: There are no database changes, additional files, ... etc. But there is only one change in a template.

1. Open the HEADER template.

2. Place the following code at the top of the contents:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Note: Otherwise, you can put it at the top of HEADINCLUDE template.

3. Save & Enjoy.

Try to change the numbers in the code: (Duration=0), and you will see its effects. But I used numbers 0 to make it seems to be a fast loaded page.

Interesting... but you should probably note that it only works with Internet Explorer.

Oh, I really didn't note or tried that before since most of my members use IE. Thanks for your notation.

BoYagoob, thank you for your contribution.

The title has been edited slightly as we felt it was slightly misleading. I have also added a note that this only works in IE.

Ok i just gave this a try on a board that has a lot of forums (500+) where the forumhome is loading kinda slow (5-10 seconds to fully load). In the top of the page there are 2 animated banner images.

I do understand that is only a visual trick and doesn't really speed things up.

How i tested?
- Applied the above change
- Did an initial pageload (i asume it doesn't make a difference on the first page load)
- Scrolled to the bottom of the page
- Did a page refresh

This was really a confusing experience.
- To my feeling it took a bit longer until the cursor changed to the 'busy' icon.
- While still viewing the bottom of the page (where i ofcourse can not click anything, since the page is not really loaded yet), the 2 dynamic banner images where showing on top of the text in the bottom of the page.
- After the normal time it takes to load the page, the screen seems 'suddenly' to refresh, the 2 banner images that where blended over the bottom of the page disappeared, and normal control was returned.

Bottom line i think is that while it might give a better look on some forums, it might also be causing confusion on others. So use it with care.

If you have a relative fast loading page (from a human perspective, loading in less then 1-2 seconds), it might give the human eye the impression of faster loading. If the page takes longer, then it will probably be confusing.

I am very happy to read your reply in my thread , and as you may know I am a beginner in decoding for vB. Unfortuantly, I can only test this modification only in my own forum and my test forum. So, as you stated it depends in the forums:

Also, for sure, this is the fact:
