I have a problem. The last two sites I've designed have really slow rollover displays. I can't figure it out. Here's the address to one: (edited) the same page is loaded on my site as well and doens't have the rollover delay. This seems to keep happening and I can't figure out what I'm doing (or not doing) that is causing this. The address that displays correctly is (edited) Thanks much if anyone can help.

Welcome to webmaster world grafx, Terms of agreement doesnt allow you to post your urls in threads, you should edit it and remove and give the code.

You should try a different rollover script search on the web for one because both versions are too slow, I am on dialup but that shouldnt matter, it works fine in opera 7 its cache handling is better, seems like your preload images arent working properly and when you go Onmouseover its trying to load all the preloaded images again, you could debug and see weather your setting the preload true flag properly.

But Id rather get a better script.It looks like a half Macromedia Script, half something else, but they usually arent that slow, also Macromedia rollovers act funny in netscape 6.

grafx, you may find it is the speed of the site in question that the "rolled over" image isn't being downloaded until actually rolled over.

Try using javascript to pre-load your images.

Thank you all so very much. I will use a different script.

Of course, you could always consider lightning fast CSS rollovers... No scripts required, just pure CSS.
