Sites are often seen taking time to load. At times there is
a blank page in front of you and the entire page is loaded
in one go. But for some, names I would not mention you see
the background only. After a few minutes the rest is loaded
and displayed on screen. in this article I will help you overcome
and avoid this blunder of yours.
To make websites effective and good in opulence they are made
using tables. Some sites are made having numerous tables of
content while dividing one table into new divisions makes
others. The tip is to use tables separately if there are a
lot of graphics to be put in. the tables should be used to
split the content into parts.
For any thing you study or do you should know the logic behind
it. You should therefore very clearly know how browsers read
For a HTML document the browser displays pictures and content
as they load by time i.e. refer to my second example of sites
in the beginning. The first example of the site kind I referred
to in the beginning was the one made with tables. Display
is done once everything is loaded. Loading time depends on
the graphics used. A large graphic can change seconds into
minutes. Therefore, using the above information we conclude
large graphics should be split into separate tables with cell
placing padding and border set to 0.
Another way is to make two tables, at the top and one at the
bottom. Top one should obviously be given the header info
and logo while the other made with content. This helps keep
the surfer busy to go through the first table meanwhile the
second table loads.
One more trick of use is to make a table and add more tables
inside. At least the visitor can see the main contents while
the inner tables load.
This makes time reduced. That’s all for a quicker site!
If you follow my tips you can make a site quick to load and
win visitor’s satisfaction. More visitors will come
to see your site. Do be careful about one thing. Making tables
does not mean you can ad in shock wave, java and Active X
programs in it. They will take a lot of time to load. You
can use Java script instead, it is a better choice.
If your site consumes a lot of time, make it better and quicker
to use as visitors require a quick service from you.
