No image loading in blog posts or home page

  1. For the pas t 12 hours I am unable to see any images attached in my blog posts or home page. The pages seem to be loading infinitely. I can see all text though.
    I have tried clearing caches and trying with different browsers. Nothing helped.

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

  2. And I can't see the images in Media Library as well.

  3. can anyone throw some light on this problem?

  4. I see images on the blog linked to your username. I am using Firefox 23.

    1. If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    2. If you are using an IE browser in compatibility mode please disable that mode. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    3. If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/

    (a) Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

    If applicable see here for instructions on how to clear the cache for Chrome and Safari on the iPad:

    (c) Disable all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily.

  5. Here are the results:

    1. I was using Google Chrome Version 29.0.1547.57. Previously I did clean cache etc. However, I gave a try using a clean FF 23 just now. Same results.

    2. No IE here.

    3. Tried all of these. Nothing helped.

    4. a. I am on a laptop running Ubuntu 13.04 (x86_64).
    b. Tried with Google Chrome Version 29.0.1547.57 & FF 23.

    If it gives you a clearer picture here's an image of what's going on (from FF):

    I am from India. Is it possible that a local server has gone low?

    Connection timed out for the first two IP addresses.

    Same result through ping. Connection times out for the first 2 services.

  9. Thanks for posting additional information for Staff.

  10. My pleasure! Actually I too want to get my stuff right as soon as possible ;).

  11. Staff deal with threads in order of those with earliest dates stamps and timestamps first and move forward to the most recent ones. Every time we post to a thread that timestamp moves forward.

  12. Who is your ISP (Internet Service Provider)?

    Do you also encounter this issue from a different computer and Internet Connection? Otherwise please contact your ISP to ask if they are blocking WordPress.com

  13. Yes, on a different computer running windows but on the same network.
    WP is not blocked as I can see the pages but not the images.
    I have provided the server IPs above for which connection times out - 192.0.72.2 & 192.0.72.3.
    When I ping them I get -
    --------------------------------------
    $ ping 192.0.72.2
    PING 192.0.72.2 (192.0.72.2) 56(84) bytes of data.
    From 59.165.191.33 icmp_seq=1 Time to live exceeded
    From 59.165.191.33 icmp_seq=2 Time to live exceeded
    From 59.165.191.33 icmp_seq=4 Time to live exceeded
    --------------------------------------

    I will check from another connection tomorrow and update as well.
    But, are the servers up?

  14. But, are the servers up?

    Yes, they are up.

    Are you working from a firewall enabled network? or business location? if so, please contact your local network administrator or ISP to ask if those IP's are blocked.

  15. I am confirmed now that the problem is with the ISP. I'll be using a proxy till the issue gets resolved. Thanks for your time!

  16. You're welcome. Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.
