To demonstrate the on-demand image script, see this YSlow component report showing only 4 images downloaded - 3 thumbs from the first page of the gallery, plus the header logo (there are 18 gallery images in total!).
And the YSlow component report showing only 9 images downloaded - 8 thumbs from the first page of the PHP gallery, plus the header logo (there are 80 gallery images in total!).
Now considering that the 80 images in the PHP gallery (40 thumbs, 40 enlargements) weigh in at just over 3MB altogether, that's a BIG difference for a page that YSLOW reports as 144.5kb. The on-demand image script saves around 2.85MB
What the?.... Somebody had my menu listed and was selling it on codecanyon. I posted it here on 1st April, and the unscrupulous person started selling it about 10 days ago (17th June?). I stumbled on the listing via this Tweet: http://www.jqueryrain.com/2014/06/re...3-canvas-menu/
The listing has now been pulled but I took screen caps of what they copied and sold as their own. The markup structure, CSS and comments, even the wording of the features list and meta description was a blatant copy.
