Posting Photos

Post by Turkeytop » Fri Sep 25, 2020 10:03 pm

Of late, some users have been telling me they can't see the photos I post. Just a little square with the word "image." If I post a link to the photo, they can open it up and view it.

But I could see them OK and other users have been saying they too can see the posted photos.

Now, tonight, I'm not seeing any of the photos I've ever posted on any thread. Just the square with the "image" word.

What has changed?

So, with the help of another user here, I've learned that my photos are invisible only to users of Chrome.

When using Firefox or Explorer, there isn't a problem.

Apparently not browser related as the image in your Keymic Mouse thread didn't display for me with Chrome, FF, Edge, and IE.

That's odd. I can see it in chrome, but if I try FF I can't.

I think I had this problem once before and MW said he had tightened up some settings. He tweaked something and it was OK again.

What you have posted in Chatterbox "Keymic Mouse" between the IMG brackets is NOT an image file. It's a link to a gmail item, and no amount of MW tweaking is going to show it.

OK. I get it. I'll fix that.

But there's still the issue that I can't see any of my posted images if I'm using the chrome browser. That's something new.

In Chrome's address bar, go to

chrome://settings/content/images - turn on Show All

then, if you're still not seeing the images, go to

chrome://settings/content/insecureContent

Add www.mibuzzboard.com to the 'Allow' list - at your own risk.

Address bar? Is that where the URL is shown?

Tried all of that. It didn't work. Then, I also added the address of the site where my photos are stored. The site I link to when I post a photo. Now it works.
