I have a QGIS project with several hundred WMS and ArcGIS MapServer layers. Every time I open the project it starts loading them one by one, which my take quite a while. enter image description here

Is there a way to prevent them from being loaded automatically?

I checked the Network Options menu, but besides setting connection timeouts, there is no option in regards to loading on startup.

  • The image you show in the question is a .sid image file not a WMS. Several hundred layers in one project is a lot, what is the use case for having that many layers in one project? – artwork21 Nov 30 '16 at 16:45
  • @artwork21 The WMS behave the same as the .sid in the ArcGIS MapServer. They are 1*1Km aerial images (what else) of a larger area. – HDunn Nov 30 '16 at 16:52
