I would like to show a loading panel when a user clicks on the Forums link in main menu of the website since the main page of forums takes about 6 to 10 seconds to load and become interactive, which creates a bad user experience on my website.
How would I show a loading panel by using Velo code or some other method?
My approach is as below.
(1) Hookup the click event of the menu item that would show a box or strip or lightbox with an animated gif. (but I cannot find a way to do this after going through Velo documentation)
(2) I would then hide the above box in $w.onReady event.
