I used to enjoy reading all the blogs and looking at all of the fine photographs that supported the dialog. A little while back the pictures started to be replaced with a red X in a box. I have not yet discovered how to get the pictures to replace the X. On a few attempts I have been able to click on the X and get the picture to come up, but this has been very rare. It is of no use to read the blog if you cant get the whole story. I know it must be me or my computer, but I sure would like some help. Thank you.

There is likely a few possible causes.
1) The person deleted the photos from their photobucket, shutterfly, or similar account (nothing you can do to solve it from your computer)

2) In some cases websites like photobucket will block a site if they are putting too big a draw on their server. It may be a temporary block, or in some cases it is quite permanent. (nothing you can do to solve it from your computer)

3) Your internet service provider (the company you use to connect to the internet) may intentionally or accidentally block some sites. If it happens to have blocked the site that the blog is tyring to show the images from, then the images can’t get to your computer.

4) Your internet connection due to security settings, or firewall settings or router limitations may have a limited number of continuous connections that it can make to the internet. So while this page loads (one connection), and the 5 ads from other locations appear (up to 5 new connections) and the photos get downloaded from shutterfly or photobucket (another connection) all add up to a bunch of connections. So if your configuration quits at 6 connecitons, then the page and the ads will load, but the images can’t be downloaded. (this is the one you may be able to do something about.)

Thank you all. I will look into my ISP and security settings and see if any thing has changed on my end.

If a picture is not shown or I have to go some where else to see a picture, I don’t even bother reading or looking at the posting.

I get them too once in a while. They are on the posters end. All the other posters work just fine.
