Some Photos and Avatars appearing as icons w question mark
Over the past couple of days I've had an issue where certain avatars and photos appear as a system icon with a question mark in the centre. (see below)
I'm running Safari on a macbook.
This happens randomly and refreshing the screen sometimes addresses the situation.
I'm also having the same issue when I click on photos. The pop up loads but if I try to scroll through the photos in a thread, I get the questionbox icon again and the never ending circle indicating the photo is loading. (photo below).
Interesting. I just tried to post that this issue is still a problem, and the post wouldn't go through - TWICE. The picture size is only 204KB, so it's not because it's too big!
Two pictures from the current WFD thread on Home Cooking. First picture was viewable; second pic was the little avatar that looks like a landscape with broken line through it - similar as what I'm seeing on Breadcrumbs' initial post right now.
I *did* open another window tab, went to CH, and went back to the thread, and both pictures showed up. But the 2nd photo didn't the first time I looked at it.
Not going to try and load the picture again - but CH is *definitely having a problem. Not a cache issue, as I clear cache at work every Friday evening.
I'm seeing the same on Firefox/Mac.
Another twist is that if I click on a photo immediately after uploading it, the window that pops up shows another photo in the same thread, and not one that I've uploaded necessarily. After a little bit, then I get the spinning circle. A few hours later, I will be able to open the photo in the pop up window.
Still also having issues with photos showing in the thumbnail, but won't resolve in the larger picture - just the "never ending circle", as Gio said above.
And I've already cleared my cache yesterday, as suggested by PeterCC in the thread noted below, so it *shouldn't* be that issue.
I'm experiencing the same thing. In addition, one photo I wanted to look at simply had a short/small faint vertical line in the post and clicking on that brought me to where the photo should have been but the "never-ending-circle" was there instead.
