PicApp images don't appear in Blog or Tag surfers

  1. I hope I am posting this in the correct forum. When I view WordPress.com blogs in my tag surfer or blog surfer the PicApp images do not appear. I only see the the code. If I want to view the images I need to leave the surfer and visit the blog. Can this be avoided?

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

  2. Can someone please respond to this? Thanks.

  3. No one has replied because none of the volunteers here know the answer.

    Can you give us a link to a blog where this is happening so we can test?

  4. Hi thesacredpath,
    Sorry it took me so long to respond. I didn't see your response. Here are a couple of examples:

    Thanks.

  5. I just added your blogs to my blog surfer and I see all the images just fine.

    It might be an issue with either your browser or firewall.

    What browser and browser version are you using, and what operating system?

  6. I don't have any PicApp images on my site. Did you try to add the 2 sites that I sent you links for? They are just a few that are using PicApp.
    Btw - I am using IE8. This is the only browser I can use due to requirements from my full time job.

  7. Thesacredpath, Sorry I am re-reading your comment again and I see that you said "blogs" and not "blog". Now I understand. Maybe it is my browser. Do you think that WordPress.com should be maximized for IE?

  8. First off, yes I have both of those blogs in my blog surfer and their images are showing just fine.

    With IE8, try switching to compatibility mode. See this page and click on the "compatibility view" link to the left and it will show you how to do it: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/features/easier.aspx .

    [opinion]
    IE's market share continues to dwindle and with their refusal to build their browser in to be compliant with established web standards, they not only become less relevant by the day, but are irritating web designers to no end. Web designers are getting very tired of having to jump through convoluted hoops just to accommodate IE.

    Where IE enjoyed an 85% browser market share at the beginning of 2003 - when Mozilla (later to become Firefox) introduced their browser - that is now down under 40%. At some point, designers will just turn their back on IE entirely. Microsoft will then be forced to either build a web compliant browser, or simply fade into irrelevance.

  9. Thanks thesacredpath,

    I know, I know. Many people have advised me to dump IE and switch over to Firefox. Unfortunately it is due to my day job that I am restricted from doing this. We have a customized software package from Oracle that only runs on IE. It would be nice if we could all band together and get Oracle to switch over to Firefox...lol.

    But don't feel too bad for me, at least I have access to a free laptop due to my wonderful day job.

    For now I will try the compatibility view.

    Thanks again for your advice.
