One reason vB4 is slower than vb3 is the use of shading and rounded corners. Add this to the bottom of the additional.css template and your forum will speed up considerably.

Feedback from users, saying their forum loads faster.
Measurements with Firebug showed no speed increase after removing the rounded corners.
It is a browser site rendering process and has nothing to do with the page request so the "speed effect" totally depends on the hardware specs of the visitor.

Hi there

In an effort to speed up my site, I stored css sheets as files.

However when I do that, my backgound image (in doc_background) doesn't work.

If I switch back to not storing css as files...the background image works again.

Anyway I can store css as files and still keep my background image?

I selected to store CSS as files and then all my editor icons disappeared.. I turned off store CSS as files and my editor buttons are back. I'd love to use this function, but gotta have the editor buttons. The button is there, and if you put your mouse over a button, the text says what it is, but the actual icon is whats gone.
