On some topics when someone posts a picture all I get is a small box with an x in it and "posted image" beside it. It is probably a firewall setting or something like that but I can't figure it out. I can see the pictures with my kindle, but not my home or work computer. Any ideas?

This may happen for various reasons, and it's not easy to tell why. Sometimes pics or accounts were deleted with only the dead links left, sometimes the particular cloud provider's server doesn't work, and there may occur temporary troubles with the web browser or web connection.

I experienced that when the problem persists, it's either due to a firewall setting, or the link is dead.

Sometimes pressing F5 (refresh page) can help......

Thanks. It has to be a firewall or some other security setting because it happens on brand new posts. I just can't seem to figure it out. Maybe it is an internet explorer thing?

Today I encountered two strange happenings here that made me post a new topic to the Forum Feedback subforum. :-k

It is definitely internet explorer. Last night I used firefox as my browser and was able to see everything fine. I just can't figure out what security setting IE uses that blocks the pictures.

I am using IE and am still using it and can see it all now.. the web people must have fixed what was wrong...
