Numpty Query

Post by ratatooie on Thu 11 Aug 2016, 12:41 pm

This is, as the title suggests, undoubtedly a numpty question, but I have not been able to view any of the pictures on a few of the recent threads starts by jameshambleton in the blogs section:

http://www.cb500club.net/t4712-project-big-1

http://www.cb500club.net/t4726-cb500-engine-investigation

 The pictures (or where I assume the pictures would be) appear as a " " only. I'm not sure if that will show up, as I copied and pasted, but it is essentially a small dash like this "-" but a bit shorter

I'm using Windows and Chrome with a few adblock extensions, but even when I disable them both, the pictures are still missing Sad

Same happens with a stock install of internet explorer.

Any ideas?

I run adblock but I have it disabled for this site even though when you register the adds go away. The images shows fine for me as it's the photo of the brake fluid. 

I host my images using a weirdish way, I use facebook to host my images as I always have, it saves the site bandwidth and I have full control of the images. 

Click this and see if you can view it.

Ah. I might have just worked it out. My work blocks everything Facebook so if the images are hosted on Facebook, that might be why!

It's a different domain address so it should work, depends on how they block it.
