Topic: Stop loading of thumbs

I've disabled the viewing of thumbs all together in some of my galleries.  Even though the thumbs do not show, Simpleviewer still seems to be loading them.  If I view the speed of the page using something like Pingdom Tools, I notice that many thumbs are loaded before the page loading is complete.  I have it set to only preload the next image.  So really only one image should be initially loaded with no thumbs.  Thanks for the help.

Re: Stop loading of thumbs

After setting thumbPosition="NONE" and mobileShowThumbs="FALSE", you can also remove all thumbURL attributes from the <image> tags in your gallery's XML file.

Re: Stop loading of thumbs

Sorry, I should have mentioned I'm using Flickr.  So the first two options are done, it's just that it still seems to load a whole bunch of thumbnails from Flickr.

Re: Stop loading of thumbs

As far as I am aware, it is not possible to change this behavior.
However, thank you for pointing it out. I will look into it further and post back if I have any news.

Re: Stop loading of thumbs

That seems like it would be a good option to add to save page loading time.

Re: Stop loading of thumbs

I'm thinking this might be a really serious bug in the way it loads thumbs from Flickr.  I'm going to try and copy what is being loaded below on initial page load testing by Pingdom Tools, and this is with it set to show no thumbs at all.  There are hundreds of request being made to Flickr for thumbs.
