I am querying whether this is a good idea, and if so best way to do it.
I have a channel (club_listing) that contains 40+ fields. There are 250+ club_listing entries.
On my clients current/old site, they have a Club Listing page which lists each of the club names. When you click on name a popup window appears with all the relevant details.
(I would prefer not to have a popup or new page displaying each clubs info.)
What i wanted to do was have hidden divs on the page that contains all the data for each entry. When the user click the club name, the relevant hidden div appears displaying all the info.
Now i already have a nice script that is doing this for the FAQS (click question, answer displays below it). I wanted to use this same script, but on test the page takes ages to load.
My initial template embeds the template with the club listing. This club listing template (uses parents tag so opens channel tag for the parent (zone) not club_listing) embeds the data for each club (snippets don't work).
Is it NOT a good idea to have a single page load the data of so many entries (eg, 40 fields x 250 entries = 10000), or is there some way that it can all load quickly and is acceptable to do?
Any response is much appreciated!
