Images not displayed in media library or on blog

  1. Hi - suddenly today I cannot see the images already uploaded to my blog, just "broken image" markers in the library and alternative text on the blog itself. Attempting to upload images fails similarly. I have changed nothing. Anyone got any ideas please?

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

    I have same problem today, if I go to the image library I cannot see any images, and I am unable to upload new images. But I can still see the ones in my blog. Any ideas?

  3. Following my early 'flag' I'm now getting similar problems on my media library

  4. Blogger.com is starting to look more attractive... images still not displaying on blog, in library and cannot be uploaded.

  5. I see images all over this blog http://dieselelectricelephant.wordpress.com/
    There's an issue with blogs being duplicated that Staff are aware of and will help with. I have tagged this thread for their attention. Subscribe to thread and wait patiently for Staff to assist please.

  6. What browser and version are you each using? There have been some reported issues with images and specifically buttons not working.

    There is also the largest DDoS attack in history going on right now against Cloudflare, which might affect your blogs if you use Cloudflare or if WP and Cloudflare share the same image servers.

    I have flagged this as a bug and also alerted staff.

  7. Many thanks, I suspect now that the problem may be within browser Firefox [27.0.1] which updated yesterday (heck of a coincidence). WordPress library images show, albeit slowly in Opera - their slowness there may be caused by the DDoS attack confusing the issue.

    The blog is a completely vanilla installation using only the basics - as in, I have no idea if third party image repositories are being used, I ain't using 'em deliberately. Ditto the browsers, no fancy settings or changes, absolutely out of the box.

    Many thanks, I seriously appreciate your support.

  8. I am using Firefox 27 and like I said above I see images - no problem.

    Then you are posting to the wrong support forum. . WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate, have different log-ins and run different versions of themes with same names. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and not for WordPress.org software installs. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

    I likewise see images on your blog

    @stephenhip
    I answered your other thread.

  11. This IS on the wordpress.COM blog site. My sincere apologies for being a civilian and not knowing the correct terminology. Good grief.

  12. @ianhutson
    okey dokey because I see images using Firefox 27 all over
    http://dieselelectricelephant.wordpress.com/

  13. dieselelectricelephant.com does not load for me at all. http://dieselelectricelephant.wordpress.com/ loads very quickly and with all images in place. I'm also on FF.

  14. Many thanks for checking then chaps, I guess that the Firefox update is a red herring then and not part of the problem. May well be down to the denial of service attack mentioned by Timethief.

    Talking of time, I do apprreciate yours, thank you.

  15. Experiencing same problem and I'm using Chrome. Broken links appearing instead of images (for images previously uploaded to Media Library)

  16. @moraymc
    And the URL of the blog in question staring with http:// is ____________?

  17. Was only affecting some images, not all. Now seems to be working again. Possibly intermittent issue as has been suggested.

  19. Hi,
    I have the same problem. I thought it was fixed, but it came back again.
    Images are disappearing.
    My latest post, which is in draft form, won't show always the image I have put up. Either in the draft or the preview.
    When I go to Media Library, all images in the library have blanked out, there is a small white box instead for each image, and it contains only the image title.
    Random images on my blog are also disappearing. Some come back temporarily, some don't.
    When I go to my reader, I can only see a few of the images from other blogs, too. Most are blanked out in the same way. I don't know if this means it is something I have done or they are experiencing the same problem.
    Any help at all anyone can give me would be really appreciated.

    Hi there,

    When I visit your site and media library, all images are displaying for me as they should.

    When I go to my reader, I can only see a few of the images from other blogs, too. Most are blanked out in the same way. I don't know if this means it is something I have done or they are experiencing the same problem.

    I'm wondering if your network speed may be an issue here? Have you tried accessing your site (and the reader) from a different network, or possibly try a different browser or computer to see if that clears up your issues?

    If not, let me know and I will be happy to take a closer look.

    For several days blog photos are not always loading and my media library shows a question mark for all images. This occurs both on my iMac and iPad while using Safari.

    I was showing the NSA Surveillance banner.....are they getting their own back, I ask?

  22. Hi

    I am having the same problem that I can't upload images/see previous images on my blog. I use firefox as well I don't know if this is the issue. When I check my blog on other devices I can see images.

    Do you know how i can fix this to add images onto my blog posts?

    Thanks

    Random images images failing to appear on my own blog, in my image library, and now when using the reader for other blogs. This is becoming seriously annoying. Then when I click on the image frame I get a dropped server link message. Is this my ISP, or is it a WordPress issue. Can anyone please help.......

    Are either of you BT customers? We have ha reports of similar image disappearance issues, and BT has been a common factor in those reports.

    Thanks for the additional info!

    Yup, BT.......and since yesterday no more problems......thanks for responding.

    Great, thanks for confirming. We have an eye on this issue...

  27. My images keep coming and going again (thanks for your previous help, BTW, jerrysarcastic) and I am also a BT customer.

  28. Just one image has disappeared from one of my posts. Still in my media library. I am not with BT and I don't use Firefox. Can the image be re-inserted?

    @clarepooley33

    That sounds like a separate issue (unless you see a broken image link where the image used to be) in which case you should try to re-insert that image. :)

  30. Thank-you! I will try to do that:)
