@nomed01. The “Mootools Upgrade” only refers to Joomla 1.5.
As for how long it takes for a page to load… this is something that persons need to understand is a function of how the HTML page loads the table element and also the processing a memory needed to recurse through numerous folders and files.
Setting Collapse to Yes(1) only affects what is done after the page is loaded. Even if you set it to No(0), if the table is large, the page will still take very long to load. That is not a result of the plugin, but a result of the fact that you are loading a huge table in HTML. This is just the way HTML tables work.
If you want to have a better performance you can do one or more of the following:
- Use List instead of Table
- If you want to use a table, list a reasonable amount of files and folders in one listing. For example, you could use multiple listings for various subfolders, instead of one listing for an extensive fodler structure
- Set easing to Linear
- Set transition duration to “short” or even 0
For your particular situation, you are going to need to display much fewer files, in multiple tables, and if possible on different webpages. In all honesty, my professional recommendation is that it is not good practice to display hundreds of files on a webpage. Easy Folder Listing Pro does indeed make it EASY to display hundreds of files, but I, as its developer, do not recommend it. It is not a good organizational practice, nor does it provide a good user experience.
Let me know what you think.
