Re: rah_textile_bar

using the css sprite technique in a future version might be a good idea – it takes a while here until the buttons are displayed…

You can also :D:

  • Get a better hosting company with fast connections and server that can decode the images faster.
  • Get a better connection to your home/office.
  • Use client side cache to store the images.

Actually the “takes long” have probably nothing to do with the connection speed but instead that the server is damn slow and sucks. Why? The images are encoded to the code and bad hosting companies (most of those mass storage hosters with “unlimited bandwidth” and “almost unlimited processor speed” are those) can’t provide services that are fast.

With my host it is instant – the image appearing ‘cause the image size in kb is so small. But when i use my other testing server, old server that is as slow as those mass storage hosters, then it takes freaking a lot of time.

Althought i could put those all icons to one damn big image, but it doesn’t fix the host issue, it could even make it worst.

But after thinking about it:

  • Next version will contain a huge image. That atleast removes the response time dingdong issue, but addes more slowness if and when your host is what it is :)

Mostly not, and won’t never be officially supported by IE6 or below. Reason:

  • Images are 24bit Alpha channel pngs.

Please, upgrade your browser.

Re: rah_textile_bar

It works on my browser at home but I’m stuck with IE6 at work for now. Great plugin, thanks!

Re: rah_textile_bar

I don’t want to start a riot here, but why the need for the png format?
There are still ton’s of folks who (for one reason or another) are stuck in IE6.

Re: rah_textile_bar

Strangely, I was trying out your rah_write_each_section plugin and with it activated this plugin works on the write tab of a section.
