Preload Menu and Tools Dropdowns

Postby scromar » Sat Mar 26, 2011 12:30 pm

I could not find this suggested elsewhere in this forum. I am frequently annoyed when, after arriving at lds.org, I click on either the tools menu or the menu menu, and it takes a half second for it to load. Why not preload these items so that they appear immediately when they are clicked on?

You may want to use the feedback link on that page to report that. While some things posted here do make it back to the developers, there's no guarantee. "Feedback" is more reliable.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

When you send the feedback RussellHltn mentioned be sure to include which browser you are using. I use IE8 and both menu items are there right after the page loads.

I forgot to mention my browser, but I have noticed the same behavior in Chrome, Firefox 3.6, Firefox 4, IE8, and IE9.

This has mostly to do with the speed of your Internet connection. I would love to wait only a half second for the menus to load. I usually have to wait 5-10 seconds at the very least.

And if the menus are loaded more quickly, that just means something else on the page is not loaded as quickly.
