I definitely thought it was working this way. But I understood that was what Bhanu was referring to as “lazy loading”, which he was proposing to disable. Now in hindsight, I might have misunderstood. Is “lazy loading” only the loading of non-essential elements while already displaying the important ones ? (like loading pictures after already having displayed the rest, rather than waiting that everything has been loaded up to display everything at once)
I see less the potential relationship with the described problem if that’s what “lazy loading” is, and not the loading of only the current portion of the topic (which maybe can’t even be disabled and discourse always works that way. Is that what you’re saying ?)
Do you think this way of loading topics may have something to do with the “ad revenue” problem ?
That “lazy loading” does ? Or that it’s probably something else ? (like what has already been mentioned above)
