Live doesn't use preview files?
« on: November 26, 2011, 11:15:48 AM »

Hello,
My Live template doesn't use the preview files generated by TOG. Is there a setting for that or something i can change in the template so the preview uses the generated preview files?


BR


BTW:
i tried posted question on the rawr site but it shows an sql error.

Sorry for the delayed response. And I apologise for the website, its now hosted on a very basic server that isn't as reliable as it used to be. We are working on it!

The new Live Template does not use generated previews, it instead uses a more intelligent lightbox plugin that loads the full size image and scales it to the browser. I decided this was better now that internet connections are faster. It can even use the full size image as thumbnails but I would recommend still generating thumbnails as multiple connections puts load on HFS.

You would have to do some programming to get it using your ToG generated previews.
