Since I do not have an iOS device I'm somewhat at a loss.

[MENTION=5236]Blood on Blood[/MENTION] browses the site via his phone and the standard desktop style. A few days ago, images across the site stopped showing up. Can any of you help troubleshoot?

Does he just clear his cache? Is there a setting for individual site he may have altered?

Thanks in advance.

If he's on a network at work, things may be blocked. happens to me at work. I have to turn off wifi to see things that are hot linked a lot of times:

Screenshot reflects being on LTE, so he's not on a wireless.

Does TMobile do the whole "Unlimited, and then throttles after XGB" thing?

With it not even showing the little 'broken icon' image, it makes me think its still trying to load it.

No one else has been having issues, correct?

I have been having the same problem last night and early morning. Pictures load now just slow. I am not in the best service area so I just contributed it to that. The phone did not act like it was trying to load anything at the time though.

I view the same way and have had a few images not show and sometimes people's avatar pic is just a black face or one with a mustache, but didn't know if that's something they did

That's just now. I am not on wifi. But the mobile view is better IMO

Works fine for me.

What doesn't work fine is images on Safari. If someone posts a large image it doesn't auto-resize. So every time someone posts a 4k picture of porn it's jacks the page up. Is there a plugin that will auto-resize pictures?

Sorry for the threadcrap. This seemed like an appropriate place to ask this question. :)

The board autoresizes the images by default. I even had it shrink them further for mobile purposes.

Safari just sounds like an uppity cunt.

Ah, I thought it was browsers doing that and not the board. It works in every other browser but Safari. She is a very temperamental one.

Not to be a dick but...

Suddenly you care about ifphone users? I have complained about inconsistencies with the mobile view for a while now and usually the answer is get an Android.

Yes it does. Tapa isnt doing anything different. Its still using img tags, which the board will resize. If you use the forum attachment system (which tapa alternately allows), it MIGHT not resize. I rarely see people using the attachment function built into the site so I cant readily say if those are resized or not. Theyre usually below the resizer limit so I dont catch them.
