[Free Add-on ] Lazy Load [img] 1.2.4

No permission to download
Compatible XF Versions
1.4, 1.5
MIT Licence
Provides lazy loaded image support via the Unveil.

A zero query method for per user-group lazy loading of the
stance before images are loaded.

Uses a noscript tag around the original img tag. Make sure you set the Unregistered group to "Never' for lazy load if you are worried about SEO.

Supports the add-on [Tinhte] Image Attachment Optimization & CDN Support .

Option to force lazy loading of contents in a spoiler tag.


Adds the permission:
  • Enable Lazy Load Images
For "Forum Permissions" and "Conversation Permissions" sections.


"Enable Outside threads/Conversations" permits the lazy loading bbcode injection to run outside of those contexts. Inside those context it will still respect permissions.

Known issues:

  • Doesn't work with XenForo Media Gallery.
  • Doesn't work with Resource Manager.
  • May impact SEO due to the use of noscript to present the original image to users without scripting.
  • Loading spinner is ugly, and not per style.
