About This Web Site – cache
The home page of the College website has been updated to improve usability and efficiency.
Each item in the rotating promotional area now loads automatically in the background once the page is initially finished loading. Therefore, when a visitor clicks on one of the thumbnails in the promotional area, the current story will fade out and the selected story will immediately fade in, rather than having to wait for the selected story to load.
With this change, the implementation of the browser’s back and forward buttons has changed on the College home page. Visitors are now able to use the back and forward button in their browsers to navigate to and from the stories that they’ve already viewed.
Finally, the code used to implement the dynamic elements on the home page has been optimized further, reducing the amount of time it takes to initially load the page.
The style sheets used to control the appearance of the Web site have been improved and enhanced. In addition to some stylistic changes within the style sheets themselves, the content management system (CMS) has been updated to allow these style sheets to be cached, which will help improve the speed and performance of the Web site.
