    Image Management - best practise - discuss

    Anthony, can you please qualify this. Do you mean DNS the entire forum domain through Cloudflare - or use cloudflare as an image CDN only. If the later, how did you set it up as just an image CDN for XF?

    Best practice - storage of attachments (images)

    The [bd] Attachment Store add-on allows you to 'keep local copy' (ie the default upload location) - in this way you may test the add-on and roll back if necessary.

    Late response, I like your setup as described, but not seeing how you plan to handle delivery of images to mobile? imho, getting mobile right is critical. My mobile traffic by regular members jumped 24% in a space of two months after cutting images for mobile (using imgix) and implementing...

    that's a bug in Chrome, the large image loads in, but does not bust out of frame because it has no width tag - so looks like nothing is happening. If you right click open image in new window you will see that it is full size image. I have not sorted a fix for that yet. I'm not 100% settled on...

    Yeah I used to fuss about what Pagespeed insights said too until I realised it was stupid and had no connection with 'actual' UX speed a real user experiences. I could rant for ages but couple of points; 1. Google does not rank forum pages (in the aggregate) well anymore because they get in...

    Yes, it's resized for desktop too. this is the whole point, I allow 10Mb uploads with no width x height size restrictions other than a max of 40,000,000 pixels. In this way I am future proofing my image store, plus mobile phones can upload large images these days and I want it to be as...

    Yep, Ideally this whole process should be similar to Wordpress where you can register additional images sizes to process on upload, store those indefinitely along with the original and not have to use any 3rd party services other than a CDN (if desired) to serve the images. In that way you...

    Other notes: With the death of Flash, I have decided to turn off the Flash Uploader option completely (ACP -> Attachments) --- this also means I know categorically that all members are experiencing the same upload process when it comes to debugging complaints. Initially I set both Bd...

    Here is a image heavy thread, if you visit with a phone you will see how nicely it plays compared to default XF settings.

    Since posting this thread I have sorted this issue on my site and it works quite well including lazyload. I deployed both Imgix and Imagefly. IMGIX For attached images I use Imgix with BD Attachment store. I choose Imgix because it has a nice S3 Bucket solution and also because the transform...

    How To Use Template Hooks

    thanks I searched 'template modifications' with 'titles only' checked and scoping entire forum. Six pages of results. That thread does not appear. Not sure what you can do about that, good search is hard. There is a reason Google earns billions a week.

    How To Use Template Hooks

    @Brogan Hello, I am attempting to understand why a template modification is not being applied. Despite multiple searches of this forum I can not find anything about how the Template Modification system works - your post I quoted above constantly bubbles to the top of my searches. So.. If...

    @JoshyPHP Feedback Re: Lazyload I'm getting occasional instances of not loading. It appears to be specific to iPhone 7 iOS10 Safari. It appears to be only video (youtube, vimeo) It also seems to be only media that should load above the fold on page load at a very specific pixel depth - but...

    The Importance of Mobile Performance - XF Designers Take Heed

    AMP is Google delivering www as a consistent 'App' like experience on mobile devices to their audience. Google is competing with FB for audience breadth & engagement. Which is why AMP pages get greater weighting in SERP. It's a better, more consistent UX that competes with the UX of the FB...
