How to Set up Carousel Content for Lazy Loading

How to Set up Carousel Content for Lazy Loading

One of the reasons why sites on RebelMouse are able to score 90 or higher on Google's PageSpeed Insights tool is through our lazy-loading functionality. Lazy loading ensures that only the most critical content is loaded first when a user clicks onto a page.

However, if you have a carousel-style layout for content inside of a Lazy Load element in our Layout & Design Tool, it will not display:

The issue here is that carousel JavaScript is wrapped in lazy-javascript by default. So when you lazy load a carousel, that code never turns into an actual script and the carousel does not load.

This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.
