  • Attachment Problem & Troubleshooting

    It seems that at least one member of the Forums is having difficulty in seeing the attachments I provide on the boards. It may also extend to seeing non-Photobucket attachments. I don't put non-Photobucket attachments on the Forums, but some do and that's absolutely fine.

    Does anyone have a suggestion or two on how to alleviate this problem ?

    I believe that member's browser settings are most likely the issue.

    Does anyone know how to adjust this ?

    Your input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    To clarify, numerous others have in the past had this same problem, and it was always the fault of the browser settings. I've never had this problem, and so do not know what was done to rectify the issue. I suspect that it is in the security settings, but I use Firefox and not IE, and also don't know if it is a browser-specific problem.

    Please help if you can.

    Thanks,
    WTM

      Bump up.

      If anyone can suggest how others with problems viewing attachments could step up to the plate here, we'd appreciate it.

      One issue is in regard to seeing the hyperlink for the photobucket attachments...but when clicked on for access, the attachments don't appear.

      Would going to Internet Options....Privacy....and setting the browser to Medium Security help ?

        I don't use explorer, if thats the browser concerned but clearing caches, removing cookies is usually a cure all.
        Ask the member to try a different browser, firefox, Safari and Chrome are all good alternatives and might provide a workaround until the original can be fixed.
        If the problem is occurring in the new browser then at least he/she will know that it's probably a problem within windows settings and it might be easier to narrow down the possibilities.

            Firewalls. anti-pop-ups, antivirus etc can also prevent certain items showing up in your browser as well as the browser security settings

            You can try adding photobucket as a "trusted site" just in case something is identifying it as a security risk

            Certain "codecs" to allow viewing of different formats of pictures and video are sometimes required - as is an up-to-date Active X or Flash controller

              Hi Howard

              The images that I post are from my Flickr site. That includes a number of the icons I post which are not necessarily JtR Forums icons but from elsewhere, such as this parrot which is hosted on my Flickr site as well as the below portrait of yours truly. If anyone has any trouble seeing the images I post let me know.

                I have just posted a message on the Hughes-Hallett Gallery thread. I know it went through because it's there on the new posts list. But when I click the link, I can't see the message.

                    Anyone else having trouble getting posts? I've changed ISP so I figured it was this end. The page begins to load but never completes. If you cancel loading the page appears. As I say it might be this end.

                        I've been having minor problems with the forums along these lines for months now

                        I first identified it as an ISP problem as when changing pages in the forum it would hang and then I would completely lose my internet connection

                        It would return if I used the repair facility - I've given my ISP a bit of verbal over this

                        It was only after a time that I realised this only occurred with this site

                        It happens quite frequently, but I just either go back one page then forward again, refresh the page a couple of times, or do the repair whereupon it loads the required page

                        I think it must be a server issue but since no-one else was complaining about it I couldn't be certain it wasn't my network timing out

                          Hi Nemo

                          I think the particular problem I'm having has cropped up before, because the last post I can see is post number 80. Since I have posted on there today, and How has added a second, it's the problem of the next page not appearing. I gather that some posters can see 20, 30 or more posts per page, but I have only ever seen 10 per page and it normally causes no problems.

                            Hi Robert

                            Yes, I think Tim has the solution for that problem

                            If he didn't then I would have suspected the server was at fault in not updating the page, but it's strange how some people see the posts and some don't

                            Regards

                            Nemo

                              Actually Robert, I've got the same problem - lol

                              I can only see as far as post 80 too

                              Is it because the thread has been archived in some way I wonder?
