View Full Version : Thread Images not being displayed

07 July 2004, 08:41 AM
On some of the threads ( I've just finished reading the SUB'D Modelling one on the Max forum ) some of the images are not displayed, there is just a placeholder ( small white box with an X in the middle ). I tried show images from my browser but it does help not BUT some images do display automatically ( seem to be GIf's and JPEG's ) and any attachments work fine.

Does anybody know why some of these do not display.

It's probable that the images that don't display are being hosted on a website that isn't working when you try to view them. (Or the person has gone over a bandwidth quota or something).

The other possibility is that they're images in a format that your browser doesn't support (eg. you have a five-year-old copy of IE and the image is a PNG file).

If you point me at a thread I can have a look?

Thankyou for your reply, I know understand as some of the threas are quite old, although there are some up to date posts.

Here is the thread link;

Thankyou for the help.

Wow that's a long (and old) thread!

I've looked through a bunch of the pages, I can't see any missing images... but I didn't exactly read through all 50+ pages ;)

Is there a specific page missing images? Were they attatched images that you had to click on to open, or were they just automatically displayed inside the post?

Thanks Again ...

Yes, please try this page

There are several images I cannot view, I'm using IE6.. but on some pages before this I can see the images ? ! as below

Got it :)

All of the images were hosted on, but are no longer hosted there. (Presumably they've been removed permanently... I can't see any links to them on the site either.

If they're really important, you can try contacting the owner of that site to see if he still has a copy.

Thankyou, that's fine, at least I know the cause of the missing images.
