With this plugin images are only loaded when a visitor scrolls to the images. It saves your server bandwidth and saves your users from load images that they never scroll to. This increases the loading speed of all pages.
The plugin only has to be activated, there are no further adjustments necessary. Easy and effective!
LLFJ uses the script "Lazy Load" by David Walsh. No extended Framework (such as jQuery) is required, because the script uses Mootools!
* Images are loaded only in visible areas
* Saves bandwidth
* Increases the loading speed of all pages
* Nice fade-in effect
* Exclude images
* Exclude components
* Exclude URLs
* Exclude Bots - search engines can index the images
* Exclude in Joomla! Editor - the plugin is not triggered if the editor is loaded
* Toggle selection - entered data are not excluded, but included

The extension is completely free, but you need a subscription for support:
I had an issue with images not showing up that have JCE_popup attributes applied to them (for opening up in shadowbox java script window). The developer was kind to point out that I can exclude those images by specifying their names or by specifying a prefix (such as "jce_") and then adding the prefix to those image names I want to exclude. Worked like a charm.
I would like to see this plugin being able to exclude plugins (such as JCE_popup) in the future.
If your pages contain lots of images, then this plugin is a must!
And if it does the job you are expecting it to do, then make a donation and support its further development.
Thank you very much for your review!
Everytime I had to deinstall it due to conflicts with other extensions who were more important than lazy lloading images.
Everytime I bought an extension, the support of this extension told me that the problem was the lazy load plugin.
Such a shame because it is a nice plugin.

Thank you for your review!
Why didn't you use my support forum? If these extensions use jQuery and suppress the loading of Mootools, then you can not blame Lazy Load for it. This plugin only works if Mootools is also loaded. So it is the fault of these extensions and not of Lazy Load.
Thank you very much for your review.
Sorry, sounds like a fake review for me!
Which component do you use for the feeds? Why don't you exclude it in the settings of LLFJ?
I'm getting tired to say it to users like you:
Why don't you contact the developer first via mail or support forum instead of writing such reviews? Do you want to motivate the developer with your average (bad) review to update the extension? Why do you destroy good ratings which were the result of many hours of unpaid work? If it is "serious" important for you, then contact the developer and ask him politely if he can help you.
With the last update, which had been suggested from a review here at JED, it became even better and is a showcase, how Kubik-Rubik understands the user needs.
I use this extension on several, image heavy sites and it really speeds up loading time!
Following the "Level-Up" idea, I just spent him a coffee and would like to submit my honest "thank you" for his dedication.
Thank you very much for your review and donation! :-)
- It's not SEO compliant. Images are no longer visible to search engines when using this plugin.
- Theres a issue with Safari browser: If using the reader function of safari before all images where loaded, you don't see the images in the reader.
- It's only possible to exclude URL's, but not to include them. I really missed the possibility to activate this plugin for just a few URL's, cause i don't want it to use on my hole site. So i had to insert many many URL's to exclude almost my hole site.
- For my intention, the pictures were loaded to late, so the user has to wait for larger pictures (>200kb). It would be nice, if it would be possible to set it by myself when pictures should load.
Thank you for your review and your suggestions!
1.) Can be solved with a user agent detection. Was never asked before.
2.) Was never reported before and I do not use the Safari Browser. Will check it and try to correct if necessary.
3.) Can be implemented easily, was never asked before. Stay tuned at my site for an update!
4.) It's an option in the JS file. Just open and edit it. This as well was never asked before, but it's a valuable input.
It is my opinion, that the JED is not for user support. I do provide a free "feature request" topic at my support forum and would like to concentrate all questions there. I am sure you understand that it is very time-consuming to support on two or more different sites. Would you be so kind and repeat your questions and suggestions at my forum? It would help other users and would fulfil the Open Source idea much better than giving an average rating.
I am always willing to improve my extensions and give them for free to the community.
Nice! Thank you for the review.
Thank you very much for your review!
Tested it on a gallery intensive site, it looks cool too as the images fade in.
Its now going to become part of my Core Joomla master install package.
Faster page loading, less bandwidth = Fantastic
Nice work :)
Nice review. Thank you!
