I’ve noticed when viewing posts, whether the originator or replies, posted pics are no longer showing, just a little empty square outline. Viewing on an iphone 6. Is there a setting I need to change? Worked fine for years, until the last week or so.

This is a question for the site moderators to answer. It is probably designed into the software used by the LJ site. Photos require a lot of computer storage space, and are sometimes a vulnerability to hackers. So the software may routinely put old photos into backup files. What happens if you click on the small square?

Have you tried restarting the phone? You could try downloading the Chrome browser and see if that works any better. I don’t see any settings that would be blocking images but I might have a different version of the IOS than you do.

Can you include a link to an example, so we can see if it’s messed up for us too?

I have the same issue. Using Chrome on a desktop computer. The 6 photos that are part of the project posts are visible, but no photos that are embedded in the text are visible. Includes all projects, blogs and forums.

Just started today…

I have restarted the computer – no change.

I’m on Firefox, Win 10, and all the pics that should be here are here. Either it’s been fixed since the last post from sras, or you guys need to get off the spywagon browser, that would be Goofle.

I tried to view pictures that I posted today both on Chrome and Safari, nothing, just little squares with a ? in them.

It’s working here now…

The only thing I did was walk away for an hour or so… :)
