Problems with displaying photos

Unread postby alf » Mon Jul 12, 2010 11:22 am

Not sure what's wrong but since this morning i can't see any pictures on the forum. All i get is blank spaces. Is the problem only on my side? I can't even see the trip reports :evil:

When i click on the "large" format of a picture i get a message that says i don't have permission to logg onto flicker to see the picture. Maybe it's because i'm a member at tinypic and not flicker?

That could be.....do you see pics at all or do you just see [img] ?

:hmz: I thought maybe your settings had been changed in your User Control Panel to NOT display pics...sounds like your browser is blocking them for some reason...are you able to see pics on other sites...ie FaceBook?

It must be my browser. It's blocking facebook. Thanks CC. Now the forums won't be the same without any pictures. :(

:( There must be a way to change those settings....I have asked the Mods for suggestions to help you. If you are at work..it's very common for your IT people to block certain things from coming in. They want you to work..you see :whistle:

Thanks CC. That's why i don't like these IT people. Always think they are clever and always want you to work. Never allow you any forum time. Hope i can by-pass this.

Can you try another browser?
You may have inadvertently blocked a few things.

Are you at work?
They may have blocked all kinds of sites, for some unknown reason. ;)

This you should be able to see, even if they block a lot of sites:

That's hosted on my site, and should give no trouble.

Yes Duques i'm at work and yes i see the picture. So what you are saying is that they are blocking flicker but not tinypic? That's why i see some pictures but not all?

No, I'm afraid that won't help. Non members can always see public photos, unless Flickr has been blocked.

Maybe try one of the proxy sites. You need to paste the url of the page you want to view in a field and click on enter.
