Images @ ImageShack not found (IE6)…

Post by Clo »

:arrow: Admins

:) Hello !

• For let's say, a fortnight, I can't view the images from the posts here when hosted @ ImageShack.
- This occurs with IE-Maxthon, always the message : "That page can't be opened…"
• For instance, this Dreamer's one:

Code: Select all

http://img216.imageshack.us/my.php?image=xnstrangefseffectan6.png 
- The thumb nail is shown in the message, but the link fails from it.
- Even pasting the address in the address-bar doesn't work…
- It works only when pasting in Opera browser, but that's inconvenient since it isn't my default Web browser for the fora.

• I assume that these image have been uploaded from XnView (?).
- So, maybe something that IE doesn't like has been set¦changed in this function ?

- TIA to check !

It's probably just ImageShack been ImageShack. :wink:

Unfortunately ImageShack is really unreliable nowadays and with all the adds and popups it's getting more annoying than it's useful.

That Dreamer's image url didn't work for me with the first try, but with the second try it loaded just fine... Typical ImageShack.

Clo, are you using an ad-blocker or is your hosts file customized?

:) Hi W. !

• At first glance, nothing in that painting… It worked some weeks ago - still in my IE6-Maxthon…
- The pop-ups filtering bar is not displayed, I've ZoneAlarm (gratis),
but since it works when pasting the URL in Opera 9.21, no trouble from it…
- I assumed that the codes sent (perhaps) via XnView could be different than formerly ?
- Personally, I don't use such images hostings, I use my own provider's Web space,
but it's indeed limited, and the good gratis hostings are getting rare…

• That isn't a big deal, but irritating and time wasting.
