Hi, some news about the issue.
I’m sorry to say I don’t come with a fix yet… and I couldn’t reproduce the layout issue.
I’ve tried to reproduce:
- On a recent PC running XFCE / Firefox
- On a 5 years old PC running Windows / Firefox and IE
With 2 kinds of fake data:
1/ 10.000 songs in 1.000 artists and 10.000 albums (that is 10 songs per artist, and max. 21.000 objects displayed on screen)
2/ a quite improbable scenario of 10.000 songs in 10.000 artists and 10.000 albums (that is, max. 30.000 objects displayed on screen)
On scenario 1, both PC on firefox can handle it without much problem, even when all songs are displayed. IE is ok except when displaying all the songs, performances aren’t good. In no case the layout is broken.
On scenario 2 there’s clearly too many data displayed, it’s clearly not a good experience but it’s still possible to navigate through items (just need to be patient ). The layout is not broken.
I even tried to display up to 90.000 songs/artists/albums on screen on my recent PC and it worked without breaking the layout (of course, it’s very slow!)
So what’s now?
I’d have liked to reproduce the layout issue
I’ll try to implement a lazy-loading feature, but I can’t say if it’ll fix your layout issue.
At least, you can turn on and off the library now
PS: I’ve fixed the library tab not showing up in settings. To get the fix, go under /var/www and type “git pull”. You’ll have to restart the web server (sudo /etc/init.d/php5-fpm restart)
