Ticket #383 (open enhancement)

Use CSS sprites

  • Created: 2011-03-30 14:07:54

  • Milestone: 2.0-beta1
  • Component: styling
  • Priority: low

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: ( … 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 too, we have a lot of small images here.

  • 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.
