Technical Issues I can't see pictures anymore

Recommended Posts

(edited)

Since yesterday (after the forums migrated to a new server), I can't see the pictures posted by members anymore.

I see this instead:

img-3013051-2-798482Sanstitre.png

 

etc.

 

EDIT: I can see attachments though.

They are missing, so I would guess it may have been posted after a backup or however the staff migrated to the new VM.

Perhaps they are still there, no idea. It might just be that they were lost in the migration. (derpy, we blame you)

Hey Blobulle, I caught this last night and actually submitted a Support Ticket.  Its board wide, and impacting even partner threads.

Attachments work, but off site images will not display after a certain period.

 

 

EDIT

 

Some details.

 

 

Broken images appear throughout the board from approximately 17:00 EST 8/21/2014 on.

Signature image files are unaffected as far as I can tell.

 

Images linked on other secondary sire pages (like the Support page) appear to be unaffected

Image attachments are not affected as indicated above. (as they are hosted on site)

Avatar images are likewise unaffected (as they are hosted on site)

 

Emoticons are unaffected (as they are hosted on site)

The issue appears to start shortly after the VM migration, but I don't want to make assumptions regarding cause and solution.

The issue is universal to all browsers obviously

 

Basically, it looks like anything stored in an assets folder is fine. Anything temporarily cached isn't stored.

So, will this bug get fixed soon?

Will this be being fixed? I believe I've posted literally every picture message through a third party image hosting site. I'll be sad if now no one can see those ever again.

Seems fixed to me unless it's for a specific site that doesn't work. I just posted a picture in a topic which worked just fine. Also I don't know if it's unnafected too but images posted on about me descriptions in profiles work fine too.

No. I checked your posts and it's not fixed. When you link in an image it will show temporarily ... but break within minutes. This is why when it happened the first ones that noticed were the fan club heavy posters, since they are image heavy threads with users constantly in there.

 

The average user will post and see their image fine, but not revisit unless quoted, mentioned, etc and even then ... they may not see it.

Any picture I put up in posts keep disappearing. *_*

 

It's very strange - they'll last a limited period of time before "breaking". I can post an image, and it'll show up. Then I'll check back a couple hours later and it'll be broken.

@Lavo will probably fix this. I've assigned a task to him. Hopefully, our saviour Lavo will attend to this.

Good to hear. :D

 

At one point I thought it may be related to the 8/5 release of nginx or just a simple file permissions issue, but I couldn't duplicate it myself in a stage environment I made. Here's hoping it's an easy diag and fix for Lavo.

Why haven't any staff replied to this thread? I'd kind of like to know what's happening with this :confused: It's getting really frustrating to deal with. 

Is there any updates or news or anything on this bug?

Any progress on the issue? I am still having problems with this as linking to pictures keep disappearing or tuning into broken links.

Yes, the image issue is indeed open and being reviewed by the Technical Admin group. Since this is an issue that many of us have concerns about I will try and put routine updates in this thread on any progress.

I have found that if you put the image in spoiler tags, you will be able to see the image when you "unspoiler" it. I think that should be done until the issue with posting pictures is fixed.

Lets see if that prevents that little 'escape' issue.

And now we wait.

 

It's been a seriously super annoying problem, so I look forward to the day it's fixed

Unfortunately that workaround is not valid.

 

I will tell you that one valid workaround is imgur ... Upload via link to imgur and post the new imgur link on MLPF. Actually this process should work for any image hosting site that doesn't require 'http://www.' to view the image.

Putting it in spoiler tags worked for me, so I kinda thought it was a site-wide temporary solution. :/

 

I suppose an alternative would be to have a thread in the testing forum and hosting an image there and just copying the URL. I'll try that.

In your test thread, are you doing this

Nope, it's turned all dead now.

@Jeric I used the test thread to attach the files and just copied the image URL and posted them here.

Feld0 spent some quality time with MLP Forums and it looks like the image linking is resolved. Before we officially call it fixed though, I'll keep this thread up for a bit longer in case the problem resurfaces.

 

So [img ] to your hearts content.
