I keep getting irregularities in image postings and am trying to find out what is wrong, or what I may do incorrect.
Today file 'George Barbier - 93' was missing from the webpost, leaving a blank space, not even a white square with a so-called closed icon. When hovering the mouse over the space, it reads the file name.
After looking it up in the Media Library, the thumb was there. When I returned to the page, the image was back. OK, maybe a matter of slow loading.
Likewise with a a Kelly Freas image in another post. When I closed my browser and returned to the site, on the frontpage this image was back.
In this post, a vanished image, but the file name this time shows as a page text line... 'unknown 166'. I gave it that name, but why does this text appear only here, and not at the other pages where the same open space was featured?
It's possible that when readers click the last link, they will see no missing image. It has returned, then. As they usually do. By why do they vanish in the first place? It means that at a given time, a visitor also sees no image.
On my side, they do not re-appear after a Refresh of the page. I have to close my browser, or simply bide my time.
I also saw various missing thumbs in the Media Library summary, while the image was fully there in the post.
Is it a matter of slow loading? Or could there be something enclosed in the image file that makes the file unstable?
In the Media Library summary the images carry this data info:
The file type is JPEG
Dimensions: always kept comfortably within the limits of the template lay-out
Link URL. When uploading, I always click NONE to avoid an unwanted extra frame around the image when placed with a wrapped text. When re-opening the Media Library and clicking Show, I see that the Link URL data of an upload is still there. I didn't forget to delete it, it simply returns, and in all uploads. Fortunately it does not return in the HTML of the text-editor...
I wondered if I need to click 'Save All Changes' for every upload I make. In my opinion, that option is only for when I want to make a correction in a file name after uploading.
