We are currently using the loader in the “only on Home page” mode. However, we would like to know if it’s possible to only show the loader once per visitor session; preventing them from having to watch it again if they navigate away from the home page and then come back to the home page. Thank you.
Hi, no problem, this feature is already on our to do list for the next update. Thanks.
Awesome! We’re looking forward to it. Thanks for the quick reply!
Hi, just want to let you know that we have updated LoftLoader Pro and the “display once per session” feature is available now. Thanks.
I’m missing the logo opacity fade up loader that’s available in the free version?
Nvm, I’m just stupid.
Hi, so glad it sorted out. And thanks very much for your review!
Loader does not work on all pages (se projects e.g.). View here adverman.it
Thanks for purchasing!
When you choose to show your loader for “All Pages”, that means the loader won’t show for posts, and the projects actually are posts of the portfolio custom post type, so the loader won’t show on each project (as they are posts).
If you’d like to show the loader for your projects, you need to select “Sitewide” for “Display On” setting.
BTW, we can add a new feature for this in the next update, to let users choose to show the loader for picked custom post type, like projects, testimonials, etc. Thanks.
Thank you for the update, and especially for the requested feature which was just released (smooth animation).
One more feature which can be added with ease is the ability to choose a background image instead of gradient colors, and in which we will be able to choose to repeat it or not (for pattern especially…)
Thank you for your suggestion! No problem, we will add it in the next update. Cheers.
Thank you for the requested feature which was added 5 days only after I have asked for it.
I’ll rate your plugin during the week, 5 stars btw : Active development, user friendly, effective plugin and honest price.
Thank you very much for the kind words!
Hi, is there a way not to load any Google fonts through the plugin? I checked the font dropdown and didn’t see a “None or default” option.
We’re trying to optimize the website load time and there are Google fonts called from multiple plugins and LoftLoader is one of them.
And is there a way not load all plugin related css and js inline but through individual .css and .js files?
1. Google Fonts – We can add an option into the font dropdown list so the text in the loading screen can inherit the default font using by the site.
2. Inline CSS & JS – No problem, we will add an option so you can choose to save styles into an individual .css file. And we will do some changes to remove inline JS.
We will include these changes in the next update. Thanks.
The Loft.Ocean Team
Just purchased it. What an amazing experience. Very intuitive, and so elegant !
Thanks a lot
Thank you for you kind words and your great review!
I see that there’s the option to only show on the home page and the option for it to only show once per option. I’d like to be able to combine those 2 options.
And about this feature, we just want to make sure we understand the requirement correctly before adding it:
Do you mean: only show the loading screen on the homepage once per visitor session, no matter which page the visitor comes to first? For example, the visitor comes to a blog post first then goes to homepage, the loading screen will still only show on the homepage, not the first page the visitor sees?
I’d like for it show only once and only ever on the home page during a session.
If a visitor starts on the blog or anywhere but the home page, I don’t want them to see the preloader on the blog or any other page. If they then go to the home page, I want the preloader to show up on the home page. If they start at the home page, I would like the preloader to show on the home page. I do know this is currently already offered. I’m just confirmed that I understand.
Most importantly though (the feature you currently don’t offer), if they visit the home page again during this one session, I don’t want the preloader to show during that revisiting time.
Thank you for your detailed and clear explanation. It is very helpful. No problem, we will make a quick update to add this option soon. Thanks.
Thank you so much for the update!!
When using a gif the preloader seems to lag a bit too much. Any way to fix this?: http://dev.sagamuseum.is
We have created the same preloader as yours on our demo site, and it is smooth, please check it here: http://www.loftocean.com/loftloader/test-for-gif/
Love this plug-in. One feature request for a future update would be the ability to assign different loaders or custom messages depending on the page. It would be nice to have one loader with a custom message for the home page then just a basic loader for all the other pages.
And, this feature is available since version 1.0.6 (released on February 24th, 2017). If you didn’t find this option in the settings panel (Advanced section > Enable “Any Page Extension”), we guess you haven’t updated it to the latest version.
And you can find details about how to use this feature to add different loading screens to different pages in the documentation – chapter 2.9 Advanced > 2.9.2 Display different loaders on different pages. Yes, on each page you can have different loaders, different messages, and more – just like what we do on our demo site.
A little bug has been added since you have implemented the smooth transition/end animation. If you click on something like “I agree” in a info box for the EU cookie law, a # will be added in the hyperlink and loftloader will automatically launch its beginning animation… but with the impossibility to display the ending animation because no page reload is operated.
Just try it here : https://www.les-alternatives.com and click on the “OK” button at the bottom of the screen. It seems to happen on Chrome, not on Firefox.
Thanks for contacting us! We have tested the page on 4 browsers and on 2 computers, however, it works well for us, we couldn’t reproduce the bug.
When we click on the “OK” button at the bottom of screen (the cookie info bar), the hyperlink just remains, no ”#” is added after the link in the address bar. The loader background doesn’t appear again.
We will keep an eye on it. Thanks for reporting.
Hi, It’s because I have desactivated the smooth page transition and the ending animation (I’m stupid, I had to let my initial setup in order for you to see the bug^^).
Please try again, I’ll activate my initial loft loader setup … and don’t forget to clear your browser cache in order to see the cookie notification. I’ll let this setup for the next 5 hours, and will desactivate the smooth page transition/ending animation after this time.
I hope you’ll be able to test it in time.
EDIT : it happens too in my acf form in which I have a repeater field. Each time a user click in the + icon to add a field, a # is added to the hyperlink and then launch the ending animation again. It’s then not related to the cookie plugin itself…
Thank you! We have found the cause. We will fix it and upload an update for it to CodeCanyon soon.
BTW, according to http://quality.market.envato.com/codecanyon, it may take about 2 days for an update to get reviewed and approved after we upload it. You can deactivate the Smooth Page Transition on your site now, then reactivate it later after get the next update.
Thanks very much.
Perfect. Thank you for your job
One more tips in order to get more visibility for your plugin, especially in the codecanyon search tool : try to add the word “transition” and “animation” in your plugin name. Something like “LoftLoader Pro – a Preloader Plugin for WordPress with awesome transitions and animations”.
Thank you for the suggestion, we will try later. And we have uploaded the update and it’s in the review queue. Please always feel free to let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!
hi, i have purchased a theme for wordpress which has a preloader built in, I have also purchased your plugin and would like to use it instead of the default preloader. How do i remove the default preloader…when i try to edit yours and activate it, the original loader wont change.
Hi i have a theme for wordpress that comes with a built in preloader. Id like to remove the preloader and use yours. it is activated and when i customize it, the original theme preloader wont change or display the changes affected by your plugin settings. How do i remove the original preloader or just get yours to work properly?
LoftLoader creates a new preloader on your site, if your theme has a built-in preloader , LoftLoader will not affect it. It sounds like LoftLoader’s preloader is covered by the theme’s built-in preloader so you cannot see it.
To remove theme’s built-in preloader, please contact the theme author, ask them how to disable/remove the theme’s preloader, so the theme won’t load any CSS and JS of it. The theme author knows the theme’s code and logic, and knows how to edit the theme code without breaking anything else.
After the theme author help you to remove the theme’s built-in preloader, the preloader created by LoftLoader will display on your site. If you have any problems or questions then, please feel free to contact us via email email@example.com.

We have checked your site and found the white rectangle is caused by another plugin which might called “jpreloader”. You can try to disable/remove that plugin from your site. Please see the screenshot: http://www.loftocean.com/loftloader/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2017/04/jreloader.jpg
Thank you so much and really sorry to have taken up your time.
I wonder why when LoftLoader is activated, multiple request of admin-ajax.php are launched after the full DOM has been loaded?
Just go to my homepage here : https://www.les-alternatives.com and open the network tab of your browser inspector. These requests seems to come from keep-alive.min.js. I bet it’s not very SEO friendly, since it add a lot of requests which increase a lot the total loading time.
It’s a bug in version 1.0.9. We have fixed it in version 1.0.10 (released on April 10th, and please see the changelog here: https://codecanyon.net/item/loftloader-pro-preloader-plugin-for-wordpress/17339671#item-description__changelog ).
Please update to the latest version to fix the issue on your site. Thanks very much!
Thank you for the answer. I’m using the Envato wordpress plugin in order to get my CodeCanyon plugin up to date, but it seems yours isn’t taken into account by it. Whatever, I’ll update it manually.
Hi, thank you for letting us know. We will check and see if we missed anything for the Envato Market plugin. Thanks.
