Thanks a lot for adding your request!

I do understand your point and I also think lazy load would be a great solution. We’ll try to add this task in one of our future updates :slight_smile:

Thank you for helping us!

Hello folks!

Big news is coming — lazy load beta version for embedded widgets is here! :heart_eyes:

It doesn’t work as a built-in option yet due to a couple of unresolved matters, but you can adjust your widget manually in order to make it work :slight_smile:

To turn it on, please add the “data-elfsight-app-lazy” attribute to a

element in your installation code.

For example, here’s how the code looks like initially:

And here’s how it should look like with the attribute added:

Please keep in mind that it will work only for widgets which are not in the initial viewport (e.g. users have to scroll down at least for a little bit before they reach the widget).

Please do let us know if it worked on your end :slightly_smiling_face:
