Unable to see most pictures
« on: December 07, 2015, 02:22:35 PM »
Haven't been here in a while but have recently come back.  I am unable to see most pictures.  There are a few I can see but otherwise when I try to look I just see an X.  Or if I click on it, it says page not found, check the url.

Is it just me?

Can you give us a page link or two that does not display an image?
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

If you didn't have the time or money to do it right in the first place, when will you get the time and money to fix it?

I'm able to see all those pics. Maybe it's a browser issue.

Those are all visible to me.  Try refreshing the browser window when images won't appear.

The images that people post in the topics are not hosted on the forums server.  The images are stored on other host servers such as photobucket, imgur, picasa, etc.  So it is possible that some images may disappear if the person who owns the images removes them from their host.  It is also possible for the servers where the images are to be busy, slow or down. However, all the ones linked to all seem to be still present.

All those photos are visible on my server - using Firefox as my browser...... 

Might try a couple different browsers.   ???

The pics are hanging up for me but I think I know what my issue is. I'm still learning the ropes with satellite internet and I think my computer watched you tube all by its lonesome one night...ooops  d*. So at throttled speed pics start getting hung up on a picture heavy thread. Refreshing usually completes the load

I am getting so POed at satellite - and stuff that loads into the cloud without you knowing it.  I was talking to the ISP office the other day.  One of the techs told me one of the customers was logging usage and the satellite modem was using bandwidth all day with out anyone on it.  They are wondering about unplugging it when on using the internet..... We at one time was going almost the whole month without it running out and throttling down.....  It is now more like ten day then starts throttling back......

I used Internet Explorer and Google Chrome and still can't see all the photos.  Weird that I can see some of them, but not all.  Oh well.  But that's half the fun... :-\

 ???    What kind of internet connection?   Have you tested the actual D/L and U/L speed.   Some of the images people use to post images to the forum are huge file sizes. If the internet connection you have is slow that can make those huge files painfully slow to load. Sometimes they will stall completely.

I'm on my work computer until I get a new laptop at home. I would say it's pretty fast but I don't know specifically.  When I can see photos, they usually pop up fairly quick.

The other day I couldn't see any of the pictures in Medeek's truss calculator thread, but then I couldn't view his website either.

With those being simultaneous I would place the reason to be something on Medeek's host service. The images in his truss topic are hosted on his own site.  Things/glitches/maintenance happens.

Workplaces have decent connections for the most part. 

When I have an issue on a website I usually go try a different website I am familiar with to see how it works. If that is fine but one site in particular is not I place the blame beyond my control and go back later.

With some images not showing on a topic here, but other images showing on other topics the blame is likely someplace between the host where the images are and your computer. Most likely at the image host.
