View Full Version : Not getting pictures
I dont know if it is just me but some posts with pictures I dont get the picture.I know some people have had problems posting pics but by answers the pic should be there. Could it be settings on my PC? As an example I cant see the picture on choppers first post http://www.bushcraftuk.com/community/showthread.php?t=6789
PS I dont get a link there either.
Thanks in advance
Same here :confused:
I can see it fine. I'm using Firefox. What browser are you using?
I have no problems either.
Internet explorer 6, I think! It is only some photos not all.
Goose, it's the same for me. I have windows XP and explorer 6.
I've tried on both my computers one running XP PRO with IE6 and the other running XP Home with IE6. Bothe have SP 1 & 2 installed and I haven't got any problems at all.
I'm no computer man, but I'd imagine that since JT can see it with Mozilla, and it works for me on Opera, but everyone using IE6 has problems, that maybe you could try a different browser? I appreciate you may not want to switch permanently, but it might help narrow down the possibilities :)
are you guys getting white squares with red x's in the corners?
No, that has happened on occasion, it is just the post referring to pictures and other posts confirm that the picture is there, but there are no boxes, spaces or links at all.
sounds very odd.... have you looked in the option settings on the user control panel, i think there's something in there about allowing you to view images... but if it happens on and off then i don't think it's this problem.
I browse the forum with both firefox and ie6 and i'm pretty sure it's not a browser issue.
It's always good to have 2 browsers installed on your machine anyway.
I've just installed Firefox, and i still cant see the piccies in the thread mentioned at the start. Now i'm confused. I'm running ZoneAlarm suite if that gives any clues...
that's really strange... should work on one of the browsers.
zone alarm shouldn't make any difference, as long as it's set to allow browsing then everything like the images are part of the same web port.
try this, can you see the image here if you open it in a new window?
All i can think is that it's a setting somewhere that's blocking it... have you got anything that is blocking sites? ( perhaps zone alarm is to blame, can it block sites now? can you see anywhere that disallows "yoxio.com" ?)... I would suggest looking in your internet browser settings, but since you just installed firefox, there should be no "blocked sites" in it.
It does seem to be zone alarm, just switched it off and refreshed,the picture is there. The other thing it seems to be blocking is animated avatars(eg Spamel) I will have a play with settings and see if I can find why.
Ps the link you put up works as a link, in the original location the picture is part of the thread when ZA is switched off.
Zone Alarm is blocking the photo, it thinks it is a banner advert, I changed settings to allow banner ads and I can see it!
Still cant see the animation avatars but I can live with that, Spamels scared me anyway, first time I logged on from work and it moved I thought I was seeing things!
Thanks for the help and patience everyone.
Yep, that's all sorted now... :) :)
