Lazy Load v2 – delay image loading Nivo Slider v3

Nivo Slider is a great image slider which I recently implemented on one of my WordPress blogs, the problem with the current version is all images need to be loaded first prior to running the Nivo Slider JavaScript.

After a bit of searching I found a fork by Lee Powers named Lazy Load, the update was for an older version of Nivo Slider which didn’t support responsive images.

After a bit of copy and pasting I managed to port Lazy Load to the updated Nivo Slider version.

Find the fork on Github.
