Flashing between pages
I can’t figure out why my pages are flashing white when switching between menu items. I’m using a child-theme with no real css changes.
I don’t remember this happening with some of my other sites.
I’ve found a few posts on the net, but none seem to have a real answer solution.
Very annoying to me – let alone client.
Any help is appreciated.
Deactivated all plugins and site seems to run normal with ‘maybe’ a little flash.
However, as I activate more plugins, the flashing takes longer.
Not sure if it is the way Graphene is loading plugins, whether it’s WP’s fault or what, but I haven’t had this issue with other templates so I’m leaning towards Graphene being the problem.
I’ve used Graphene for a lot of websites and I can’t tell clients now to disable plugins until they are happy with the amount of flashing between pages.
I’d hate to have to move to another template system as this one is so flexible and easy for clients to work with.
I’ll keep researching but I’m not an expert on the underlying code so hopefully one of the developers can help.Mod
It could be a single plugin causing this, or it could be a combination of two that are causing this.
It could be related to the size of your background image, as well, or how you are manipulating it with CSS. (Try swapping out just a color instead of an image for a background to see if it still happens.)Quote:However, as I activate more plugins, the flashing takes longer.
It could also be the way a caching plugin is set up.
I’ve now done a fresh install of WP and Graphene and still have the flashing. No plugins (other than Akismet) are installed/activated.
My background image is down to 230kb which is pretty small, but even without the bg image it still flashes really badly in Chrome and IE.
I dunno what to do anymore but to look for another theme which is a shame as I have been using this for a long time.
I hope someone can figure this out for the future.
