I'm working on a project for a friend that involves a massive page with 3,000+ photos. See: http://www.thepurplepixie.com/projects/purple-pixies-people-project/
Currently, I have pagination set to 50 thumbnails per page in order to try and get the Infinite Scroll (Wordpress Plugin) (Infinite Scroll Homepage) to work, and to illustrate how I have the galleries set up in NextGen. Before, I had pagination off so it was one massive wall of photos, which, while accomplishing more or less what I was wanting, ultimately was brutal to load -- both in terms of memory and bandwidth.
I can't seem to get the plugin version of Infinite Scroll to work, I'm guessing because it's more structured towards post content than big bunches of images. Also, I have multiple instances of the pagination system per page, due to multiple galleries per page.
Does anyone have any idea how I would go about lazy loading these images?
