A long time ago I added this template modification and had really forgoten about doing it.
It now shows up as an error, and the error says this
Is this something that I should worry about, and does it actually work?Code:<meta>isn't allowed in<body>elements
Make your forum's speed seem faster 1. Open the HEADER template.
2. Place the following code at the top of the contents:
<META http-equiv=Page-Exit content=BlendTrans(Duration=0)>
<META http-equiv=Page-Enter content=BlendTrans(Duration=0)>
Note: Otherwise, you can put it also at the top of HEADINCLUDE template.
3. Save & Enjoy
How does it work?
When a page posts back (for example when you click a button on a form), it normally causes a screen flicker as the page is redrawn. In a lot of cases the screen that is redrawn is very similar to the previous screen, and the flicker is an annoyance, disrupting the user's experience. The Blendtrans function causes the old page to blend smoothly into the new one, rather than flickering.
A lot of the time, this gives an identical effect to an ajax style http request. The page appears to have stood absolutely still as just one part of it is updated.
This simple trick alone gives you about 50% of the benefit of ajax, with a 1% of the effort. Having said that, it's absolutely limited to that one visual benefit, and limited to one browser.
To get the full benefits of ajax, you will of course need to use ajax, not fajax.
