Pictures not appearing
« on: September 4, 2021, 08:01:14 AM »
So, having issues with images no longer being visible, but my imgur account is still active and nothing is wrong with it. A lot of my recent images in my painting blog are simply not visible to me. When I click on them, however, then they open correctly in imgur. Any thoughts?

Splitting this into a new topic solely because a lot has changed on the forum side since 2017, most notably the server.

I have noticed that your images sometimes don't appear in your topic when I browse it, but sometimes they do.  The image that you have posted in this topic neither appears here nor on the image hosting site.  Which browser are you using?  I'm using Firefox.

Hi Irisado,

I am also using firefox. The images usually load for me. I almost wonder if I should use something other than imgur. Strange that it affects others as well.

I would suggest testing whether you have the same issue with a different browser before changing anything else to see whether it is related to Firefox.

Alright, so I tried chrome & Edge, and none of the images will attempt to load.

So, I'm not certain if it's a web browser issue.

you seem to be using linked BBCode. the problem with this is it is using HTTP instead of HTTPS, which cause it to break.
it put this inbetwwen the IMG tags http://i.imgur.com/YWqdVCf.jpg
instead of this http://i.imgur.com/YWqdVCf.jpg

Here is your link from your last post after I added the "s"


EDIT:
I use the BBCode which correctly adds HTTPS, looks like this is a bug with IMGUR's Coding for Linked BBCode, as it has dropped the "s" from the second reference.

Thank you for the explanation, Mage!

That makes sense, since I believe 40k online used to not be on HTTPS before. So whenever that upgrade happen, it just broke my entire thread  ;D  :P.

Well, Iris & other mods, how should I proceed? I don't want to re-upload all my hundreds of pictures throughout that very long thread. And no one can see any image there anymore.

Should I just start another thread?

If you want to keep the current topic, you can just edit the first post to explain that everyone needs to click on the pictures.  Clicking on the pictures in your topic results in them being displayed.  The issue of images not showing even when being clicked on was only occuring with the image that you linked to in this topic.

yup -- basically, since this site is https, your browser will not display any images called with http -- because it's insecure.

I had turned OFF the proxy before the migration because it was a bit buggy...  let's see if it works better now. (but it's always safer to use https, if it's available)

oh.  Proxy is on.

The problem is that your images are too big. :)   To conserve server resources, the proxy will only convert images smaller than 5MB

Hi Kindred, thank you for the explanation  :)! I'll see what I can do to shrink the file size.

Thanks!
