Improvment: Slider spinner with font awesome
We are using the module slider with different dark baack color

The loading spinner is an image (/plugins/system/yjsg/assets/images/yjsgsliderLoader.gif) so if we change the background colors it will dissapear.

The suggestion is to make this spinner a font awesome spinner, so it will work on with any font color.

Font Awesome Examples

to be honest , all of them are ugly
we might look for alternative one

yes it's cool

the issue I see with those including FA ones is that they all require CSS3 animation which fails in IE9. Loading polyfills just for the spinners is overkill.
Like said will look in to this for possible change.

but in all honesty we cant ever know what your bg will be , so css override for the grid where the slide is used is the simplest solution
get the spinner - Circular (Spinners) AJAX loading GIF and APNG spinners, bars and 3D animations generator

change color and add to custom.css for now

we have used that site in the past, but when you are making a lot of sites is really a pain to create that image for each background color.

That why we really prefer fonts ... just "color: #rgbrgb" dinamicly and it's done.

And now .woff2 (faster and smaller) is released ( even better. With little support for now but will improve over a short time period (Can I use... Support tables for HTML5, CSS3, etc)

I will look for a suitable solution , maybe an image fallback for lower versions of IE11
