A built-in option in many WordPress themes such as Newspaper, but there’ll be a plugin.

No. It is not.

And you should not look at crap sites to optimize your site for news


It’s not built in feature, because I have seen too on many WordPress sites with different different theme so I can say it’s by Plugin

Its Lazy Loading of Images, You can use any Lazy Loading Plugin, Most plugin contains this feature

@BihariLala is right. It’s a built-in feature that comes with many WordPress themes. However, you can also achive it through custom code and Plugin.

Example: HitMag

Currently using Jetpack lazyload, so is it necessary to disable the jetpack lazyload module to use it?

Exactly. First, the JetPack module (lazy load) need to be disabled.

Okay, Let you know by the night. Currently outside.

At last I have found the option in Block Settings> Thumbs on Modules/Blocks in Theme Panel of Newspaper theme.

Now it’s working as other news websites.
