Images not showing up.
« on: March 14, 2017, 07:55:03 am »
I've been having problems with my images not showing, it shows up for a few days than vanished. I have seen this on other peoples posts and I don't know what and why it is doing it.

I used to have this problem too, and I've noticed that uploading them to Google+ is usually what causes the problem. If you can, try uploading your images to an image hosting site like imgur instead.

Hope this helped.

There's a couple reasons why it may be doing this. They're all user issues or hosting issues and not forum issues though

1. Hosting site
Some sites are better for hosting then others. Sites meant for hosting (such as imgur or photobucket) will work better than google for example

2. Image file
If the file is edited or removed the image won't work on the forum. That's probably what you've seen when referring to other members. If they removed the images from the hosting source they won't show anymore

3. Internet
Some internets block certain sites. This is particularly common at schools and stuff and if the hosting site is blocked the images won't show up on FT (eg at my old highschool I couldn't see any images hosted on imgur because the school blocked imgur)

I have a feeling though that the issue you're experiencing is #1 so maybe try a new hosting site. Hope that helps ^^
