Image display issues

Lots of issues with images not displaying. I'll click on an attachment on a post and it will just sit there and spin without loading. And random sig images will refuse to display over multiple threads. Same issue here on my work computer and also at home.

Anyone else?

I've had that happen to me too. Not very recently but it's happened quite a few times

Hi there,

Can you grab me an example of this?
It doesn't seem like the forum as migrated to the cloud/https.
Just need to dig further into this

Cheers,

Ed

It happens randomly. Sometimes everything works great then randomly it'll stop working

^This.

What happens is that certain sig pictures (mine and a few others) along with any of my linked images will fail to load. There's not really anything to see...

Today it's working fine, BTW.

It looks like the problem is directly related to the fact that the site now has https. The site was given https hack in June and one of the results is that the forum will no longer show content from hosting sites that are not secure. When I look at the links that you have in your signature Spannerhead, most of them are on http sites (not https) so that would explain why those images are not showing up on the site, now that the site has https. The reason why you might be seeing your images from time to time is because you might be visiting cached versions of the site, so if you have the old URL bookmarked on your computer, it might be leading you to a stored version of the http site (where you would see your images). To make sure that everything is up to date, I'd suggest deleting any old site bookmarks, clearing your browser's cache/cookies and then logging into the site (making sure that the URL is https). You can re-bookmark the site to make sure that you're visiting the correct URL.

We understand that this is a bit of a hassle for people who have images hosted on non-https sites, but ultimately all hosting sites will soon be required to have https anyway, so it's only a matter of time before all of the now-missing images are restored. In the meantime, there are some add-on/plugins that you can install should you need to view http images on the site. You can also try using Internet Explorer (if you have it), since it does not enforce the same security measures as other browsers do.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Cheers,

Erik

Erik, the thing is that the isse also occurs on photos that are uploaded directly to the forum as an attachment

Hmm...odd indeed! Well, if you come across any specific examples, please send them our way so we can take a closer look. I'm not noticing anything out of the ordinary on my end, at the moment, so it sounds like it might be a tricky thing for us to hunt down. Screenshots or links to specific examples would be much appreciated, the next time it happens for you.

Thanks folks!

Erik
