    I would like to change the buffer icon to something more relevant to the client/website. Please advise how to do this. I have the animated GIF but couldn’t find where in the template to change the buffering icon.

    Hi Andrew,

    May I know which ‘buffer’ icon are you referring to?

    Andrew Winkler Friend

    The Rubik’s cube buffer icon used in the JA Social II template.

    1. Rubiks-Cube

    It’s a gif file locates in: /templates/ja_social_ii/images/preloader.gif

    Do I need to overwrite that file (and risk having it being overwritten by a template upgrade) or can I set the filename somewhere to my own GIF file?

    Yes, it’s set as background so you can override.

    Try this custom CSS:

    .features-loader {
      background: background: url(../images/preloader.gif) center no-repeat @white !important;

    and change the path to the path of your desired image.

    Thanks for that. The site is now displaying the desired new GIF loading buffer, but only on the frontpage. How can I make it show on all the other sections as well, which are using the standard stylesheet?

    On which pages I can see that preloader on your site also?

    Andrew Winkler Friend

    You can see it on only. It would appear, that the ‘preload buffer icon’ feature is only available on the "Features intro" style of the JA Social II’. I would like to have it available on pages using the "Default" style as well.

    Try opening this file: root/templates/ja_social_ii/tpls/default.php (or other php file in the same directory which is associated with the layout you use)

    add this div tag:

    <div class="features-loader"></div>
