Background image loads slow

Recommended Posts

wasabikino

My background image (18kb) is loading slowly (especially on IE). HostGator says that the code for the background comes after the content. IS there a way to fix this? On the iPAd, it looks like my previous background (light blue) is loading first, then my new background (royal blue) on top of it. Is there a way to clear out old background images? I uploaded several background images and I want to delete them. I deleted them out of the Media Library, but it seems they are still attached to the theme. I have the plugin W3-Cache and deleted all caches - but this did not help. Any suggestions? Do I need to go to FTP and delete the images? Which folder???

The image loading last is by design. If it didn't come last, your site would just appear to hang there, and load nothing, until the bg image was loaded, THEN it would load the rest of your sites content. I'd get rid of W3 cache personally, and get your site on a CDN (Content Distribution Network). MaxCDN is having a FREE thing right now, you signup for $1 and you get a TB for free. Nick

I deleted old backgrounds from Image Library. I had 2 old backgrounds. This helped a little. Thanks for all your responses. We can end this discussion now. Have a great weekend!
