Hi,



How come there are some threads/posts I can't see pictures in but others can? In the same thread I can see video but no pictures - I have checked I have the 'enable pictures' selected in my settings.

ÂMay all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their pain. May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free. May the powerless find power, and may people befriend all life. May those of all species who find themselves lost, the young,...

Good question. I noticed the same thing. I just figured it was some sort of quirky thing with Chromium,

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That is the essence of humanity.

What posts specifically are you referring to?



I see some red X's but that's usually a problem with the website hosting the image.

It seems that this post ^ should should have a picture, but I can't see one... If it doesn't have one, just ignore me. I'm using Firefox on Mac OS X, if that helps.

There is code for an image in that post but it goes to this url...



http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr....yzSvrYfeTAM%3D



Which is apparently not a link to an image.

OK, cool. That sort of thing probably explains the occasional missing picture that I encounter. Thank you!

I noticed it in others but most recently this one - https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...Trying-to-Save



When I view it there are no red crosses, just gaps where pictures should be.

In the first post?



It appears to be a post by the same person. I wonder if they're not using the proper tags to do what they want.

No, all the way through - the pictures that VeganTigress has posted of Bella. Especially towards the end of the thread.

Sure.... I can't see 15, 20, 30 and 72 to name a few but I CAN see 52 and 61. I'm currently using Firefox but I viewed it in Internet Explorer and I can't see them in that either. But from the posts everyone else has made, it seems like they can see them. A few of the newer ones are 211, 222 and 228.

Same issue I posted earlier, all of the images are listed in the following format...



http://s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr....xIRMe41P1iI%3D



Click it and you'll see the image doesn't load. It's an issue with the way it's linked, not the way it's being displayed here.

Bum and I did so want to see pictures of Bella! Thanks for looking into it though.

I have the same problem with VT's pics. I can only see half of them. Weird.

I have this problem myself - I upload a photo to say, twitpic, copy the URL from properties, and it shows up - but when I go back to the thread, there's just an empty space, no sign I'd posted a picture at all! What am I doing wrong? most recently this thread, post 26 https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...t=#post2586125

Maybe they don't allow remote linking of images. That's the same server the other person was using.

You should be able to upload pictures to VB from your computer when you use the advanced reply.

When you post a blog it's easiest to do it from another site like Flickr. I signed up for an account with one of them just for that purpose.
