Hey guys, a lot of the time I'm getting pictures in threads not appearing, with me having to refresh the page 10+ times for them to show, i'm hoping I'm not the only one with this problem:

Almost any thread that has pictures that another user has posted, as you can see by my print screen in my post.

Looks more like a connection/speed problem rather than the forum.

 

Anyone else having problems?

That's quite a funny coincidence as your picture doesn't appear Harry!

 

And I've never had a problem before with any other websites or the old version of the forum?

What OS and browser are you using , so we can see if other members with the same browser have the same issue

 

EDIT

 

have you tried clearing your browsers cache and checked your anti virus settings being as though the forum has been updated

You've had this issue since the software upgrade?

Try Googling "pictures not showing up for xxx browser in forums"  (where xxx = your browser type) . Depending on which browser you are using there are various settings in the browser (not the forums) to 'accept all images' or not. They are are determined at the user end not the server end.

 

Also as suggested above, clear out your cache close the browser and then restart it. That simple act alone can sort out all sorts of issues at the user end.

PS I'm using Chrome and having no issues on pictures.

I've checked your account and can confirm that this ISN'T a problem with the forum or your account. The problem is your end. If you can respond to the questions above (when it started, browser, OS, have you cleared the browser cache) then I will try and assist.

The problem started when the forum upgraded, I haven't refreshed my cache but will do. And I am using Internet Explorer.

 

EDIT: I just refreshed my Cache yet it is still happening?

I thoroughly recommend Chrome - I don't use anything else now. What version of IE are you using? Can you update to the latest version? 

 

The common denominator for people having problems with the upgrade is IE!

I just had a similar problem with IE (some photos not appearing properly), but as I have recently upgraded to Windows 10 (which comes with 'Edge' browser as well as IE) I have tried that instead of IE and it appears to work OK.

Seems very odd that MS can't fix IE when 'Edge' works OK.

It does also appear to work OK on my 'Windows' phone.

IE does seem to the common denominator for problems with the new software!

 

As an aside, I use Chrome on my Android phone and the forum is a million percent better than the old software on mobile where I had the choice of 'mobile version' where I couldn't do most things or 'desktop' which was big, slow and bulky. The experience on my phone alone is worth the upgrade to me!

Curiosity has made me tap into this topic. I normally use Firefox, but Chrome is also on my PC. Praise for Chrome above made me give it a try and I find that it gives different results if you go to a topic with multiple photos and double-click on one. This is what happens in Firefox (much the same as the way Facebook displays photos for me):

And this is what happens using Chrome

Is that what I should expect?

That's strange!!

 

This is what I get in Chrome:-

And this in Firefox:-

firefox.png.2babc635f88637f5749fdadad91d

 

My version of Chrome is Version 46.0.2490.86 - what version are you using??

 

I know that photos added AFTER the upgrade appear in the Lightbox, whilst pre-upgrade photos appear as downloads in a new tab, but I can't explain why you see something different in Chrome :(

I'm using the same version and post-upgrade photos display as they should in both browsers.

I'm speaking to Tech Support about issues with Internet Explorer.

 

Please can you state which version of Internet Explorer you are using.

 

Many thanks

 

Bill
