History

#1 Updated by F. W. over 6 years ago

Would you be interested in further contributions to the efficiency of the frontend? I guess I could try to find a solution to maintainable CSS sprites, and CSS and Javascript minification and compression.

By the way, do some images intentionally lack a transparent background?

#2 Updated by F. W. over 6 years ago

(Like message.png and comment.png, one has a transparent background, the other has a white background.)

  • Resolution deleted (Fixed)

As far as I know, images are directly taken from the famfam icon set, any lack of optimization or transparent background is not intentional. If you want to provide a fully optimized set, I'll integrate them all in the same commit.

Anyway, we don't want to maintain CSS sprites, it's a bit too complicated to maintain. Thanks for your contribution.
