Excluding Image Grid Images From Lazy Loading

Lazy loading plugins can interfere with the correct loading of the Image Grid. To exclude the Image Grid images from being lazy-loaded you can add the following to your lazy loading plugin’s CSS class name exclusion field.

Advanced Customizations

siteorigin_widgets_image_grid_lazy_load

Exclude an Image Grid Widget image from lazy loading using the siteorigin_widgets_image_lazy_load filter. Replace 6119 with the ID of the widget you’d like to exclude.

add_filter( 'siteorigin_widgets_image_grid_lazy_load', function( $lazy, $instance, $widget ) {
	return $instance['image'] !== 6119 ? $lazy : '';
}, 10, 3 );

wp_omit_loading_attr_threshold

The SiteOrigin Image and Image Grid Widgets use wp_get_loading_attr_default to prevent lazy loading above the fold. wp_omit_loading_attr_threshold can be used to adjust how many images are excluded from lazy loading. The below example will exclude the first two images on the page from lazy loading.

add_filter( 'wp_omit_loading_attr_threshold', function( $omit_threshold ) {
	return 2;
} );
