Ticket #383 (open enhancement)
Use CSS sprites

FluxBB is a light forum application, why not use CSS Sprites to reduce the http hits ?
I have already implemented this feature on my personnal skin: http://forums.fedora-fr.org (http://common.fedora-fr.org/fedorafr_v5 … prites.png) but a core implentation could be nice.

I agree with you, a core implentation could be nice.
But you mean a sprite for everything or one for the buttons, one for the banners and so... ?

- Milestone set to 1.4.6.
- Priority changed from normal to low.
I would agree on the reducing http hits part, but I've never actually used CSS sprites before - how are they for cross browser compatibility?
On a separate note, we should actually consider doing this for FluxBB.org too, we have a lot of small images here.

I tested http://www.alsacreations.com/xmedia/tut … mple1.html and http://www.alsacreations.com/xmedia/tut … mple2.html using IETester and it works like a charm, even with IE 5.5.

- Milestone changed from 1.4.6 to 2.0-alpha2.
I'm going to move this to 2.0-alpha2 since I'd rather not edit the existing skins too much, as they are technically meant to be stable.

- Milestone changed from 2.0-alpha2 to 2.0-beta1.
Since we don't know if the current styles will make it to the end of 2.0, I thinks it's a better idea to move this to a later date, also, if the styles need to be redone, we're losing time.
