Loss of picture yet again!

14 comments


Good morning everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and warm.

Last night I logged on to GoY, then clicked on to Microsoft Edge to access the photos, avatars etc., only to find nothing but empty boxes as before! This morning the text is there, but not the pictures.

Before I ask my I.T. Support (daughter) how to solve this problem I wonder if anyone here can suggest what to do next.

It really becomes so frustrating and I don’t understand why it has happened again, having been so problem-free for a couple of months.

All solutions welcome!

Shirley,it's the same for me,and also Amy 2,as we have been in contact this morning,so it isn't just us,it seems.I have had no problems at all since using Microsoft Edge,till last night.
At least we know it isn't our fault,which is a relief,but like you,I have no idea how to fix it..

I had just asked about this on Questions,before seeing your post..xx

I don't have this problem Shirley , but I have to log in with my password every time and sometimes when I click on something, I get an "oops" saying there is a problem and then it works !

Rose,I have tried all different ways,logging out,and back in again,and no 'oops' for me ! very frustrating ! I've even tried Google Chrome again,but no change..still the same on Microsoft Edge.It's been great up till last night.x

It is now 5.15pm and 'normal service' has yet to resume . . . so frustrating as I would love to see pics of snow from around GoY members gardens!

At least you won't miss seeing one from my garden,Shirley,as we had ours last weekend ! thank goodness we didn't get anymore,but there are still lots of places that are flooded from the heavy rain last week..roll on spring !

Sandra and Shirley, can you get firefox as that may work for you?

Morning all, yesterday I messaged Dave via 'Contact Us' and he promptly replied to me this morning.

His pics are still there and he can only assume it's down to the browser again. He suggests using Safari so I shall await daughter's view on that. Not being techie minded I rely on her input!

Oh well,that's me left confused then,Shirley.I have no idea how to change browsers, but thank you anyway,for contacting Dave,and getting a response. Microsoft edge is fine for everything else I use,so can't understand why it wouldn't be for Goy? I don't fancy going back to Firefox either,as that wasn't as good for me,when I changed to Windows 10. I shall have to wait,like you, till my Techie(Daughter) has time to come and sort it out for me..In the meantime,I can still read blogs,Questions,and reply .:o) xx

Sandra, talking browsers may as well be a foreign language to me as I know nothing! Hopefully it will all resume soon . . . I miss seeing photos on blogs and pics . . . :o(

I have no problems seeing anything on here & I'm using Firefox!

Browsers are no more than any other programme you download & run on your computer. You can have any number of them that you like! You can even open them all at once & each one will open in its own window - just like tabs in a browser do today, only they all open on your desktop & you have to change between one an another. Not as convenient as tabs but if you want to see how a page looks on a different browsers that's how you go about it!

Some years ago I was into making my own websites & I downloaded & installed about 5 different browsers all at the same time so I could view my pages on different browsers. I had Opera, Safari, Windows internet Explorer & Firefox but I can't remember what the other one was. (No, it wasn't Chrome as it didn't exist then. They all showed my pages slightly differently so I would go back & make changes & then open them up again in the browsers until I was satisfied they showed how I wanted them to show!
