Performance issues - iMac and MacBook Air

by skybound » Mon Jan 18, 2016 6:28 am

I have a few Macbook users that are complaining about the performance of our board and how it 'refreshes' when scrolling.

Are there any known issues with Mac users and this theme?

We did test the same users on stock standard prosilver and there were no issues and performance was normal. ie the performance is linked to the theme.

Also if we have updated to our board to 3.1.7pl1 do we need to update the Elegance style too? If so, what is the process?

There could be minor performance issues because of css3 shadows and gradients. Safari is quite bad at handling it and other browsers have minor performance drops as well.

Thanks Arty. Is there anything that can be done to address it, like using standard web safe colours or the like?

(BTW - your elegance theme has breathed new life into phpBB like you have no idea. It is the most professional theme I have seen. I am not shy to say that the theme was one of the cornerstones in our decision in sticking with phpBB. Thank you)

Not really. CSS3 gradients could be replaced by semi transparent PNG images, but that's a lot of work. Shadows can't be replaced.

There is no such thing as web safe colors, it stopped existing a decade ago :)
