Default VEF - for dial-up / mobile users - advice

Having now connected to VEF with slow connections and mobile dongles with bandwidth limits there are certain unwanted things you will experience if you dont take precautions

On VEF a post can contain up to 125 thumbs (correction - now 150 thumbs - kudos to G-Type)


Dial-up 56k and downwards


At these speeds you really are hamstrung and need to seriously consider
blocking all the images , ads , avatars , signatures. and avoiding moving gifs

Then you have a bit of control over

- how long it takes pages to load
- how much bandwidth your using up



The first place that will help is your USER CP
Located top left under the VEF lady



After entering - on your left - you select options - under setting
- half way down the page thread displays - visible post elements



Then you untick what you wish to avoid - avatars , signatures
& images (other option is to leave this checked and block images in your browser)

Changing the number of pages from default 10 to 5 worthwhile or

If your heading into general discussion / non-content areas up to 40 per page




Mobile Dongle



Unlike dial-up the speed here isnt the main issue but the bandwidth limita with todays large posts of up to 150 thumbs at 5-10k x 10-50 posts can eat away very quickly at your limit.

To that end rather than turning off images altogether using add-ons in your browser
which can be turned on and off easily is worth exploring as it allows threads to load quickly.

Then you can select individual posts - right click the number of the post - open in a new tab
- turn off the image blocker and refresh page - only downside to this is a lot of most image posts come with no text but if your after the videos in a thread this speeds the process up.

Firefox has one called image block

Image Block adds a toggle button that conditionally blocks/allows loading of images on webpages. The toggle button is added to the navigation toolbar (extreme right) by default. Blocking images results in faster browsing, especially helpful on handheld devices or slower connections like GSM/GPRS/EDGE dial-up etc

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...n/image-block/

Around the wider web add-ons like no script (firefox) & script safe (chrome)
can give you even greater control on things that suck up bandwidth

No script security suite
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...script/?src=ss

ad-block plus another useful one
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir.../adblock-plus/

Browser suggestions for setting up your browsers
firefox , chrome , opera & IE

http://www.techsupportalert.com/cont...y-concerns.htm


Gifs - moving in posts


These can still be found on VEF - leftovers from a time when they were allowed anywhere

Image block in firefox blocks these for me



Editing posts


You need to isolate the post before the edit
- right clicking the post number and open in new tab
otherwise when you save the edit the other 4,9,19 or 39 posts per page will load in full.

Also, try a lightweight browser like K-Meleon. It has some of the features described built in (like image toggling)

Good site which lists many of the browsers by 3 different categories
light weight , specialised & mega



Then lists then by what core rendering engine is running them

A tutorial on how to set-up most browsers with add-ons

If graphics are not an important consideration, for extremely fast page load times nothing beats the Lynx browser. I find K-Meleon to have some very fast page loads. I have not done a thorough comparison, but in the graphical browser arena it is one of the fastest and most memory and CPU efficient.
