Images not showing up...please help!

  1. Here's the link:

    http://ginnyphillips.wordpress.com/

    As you can see, I've never had a problem with this before. I just posted a blog and maybe 90% of the images have shown up, but random ones have not. They ALL show up while I am posting them, while I am still in my dashboard "Create New Post" page. Then when I go to the site, several are missing and just have that tiny blue square in the middle with the file name. I have even removed them and tried reposting them in other spots and they still don't work. Again, they work in my dashboard and show up in my post preview there.

    Please help!
    Thanks!
    Ginny

    The blog I need help with is ginnyphillips.wordpress.com.

  2. Well, let's see. Your latest post by itself appears to have over 100 images in it. What exactly did you expect? Most likely your browser is timing out, or your connection. On top of that you apparently have your blog set to display about 12 posts on the main page. Even with my 5mb connection it took over a minute for your page to load.

    First I would suggest better optimization of your images to reduce image file size. I'm seeing virtually all images being over 100k in file size. Optimize them so that they are down around 35-50k in size. http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/08/optimise-your-images/

    If you are going to have hundreds of images in a post, set your blog to display only one post per page (settings > reading). You always have to keep your visitors in mind. A large number of people are still on dialup or slow DSL connections (256k) and they simply will not wait for five or ten minutes for your page to load.

  3. thanks, I really do appreciate the link and the help...but maybe next time you don't have to be so rude!

  4. Rude? I don't see rudeness at all. I do see an awful lot of good help and advice.

  5. Really. I don't see 'rude' either. Me thinks the lady doth protest too much. I saw a very good response that was technically rich.

  6. Eh, if I had it to do again, I would have worded things differently. I apologize to ginnyphillips, I was a little snarky there.
