So as the topic thread says, I'm noticing that images are broken in the forum as of late.

At least on both my desktop and laptop. My phone still shows them just fine.

It seems to be the images that people have uploaded onto Comic Fury itself that are the ones showing as broken despite when you click to see the images on a separate tab/page, they will show up.. Images from other places seem to show up fine.

And it's only the forum I'm seeing this issue.

Well, right away my at the bottom of my posts is supposed to be my comic's banner image/link to the comic and all that's there is the broken image symbol with thw word 'image' next to it. A lot of peoples' signatures are showing like this to me. The ones that aren't, aren't using Comic Fury as their image host.

Looks fine to me in 3 browser environments: Firefox/Windows where I'm logged in, and two which are completely fresh: Chrome/Knoppix and Firefox/Knoppix. What I have seen in the past is porn blockers blocking some innocent comic material. I don't remember if that applied to anything on Comic Fury or not.

I'm noticing this too. MST3K's sig (and various other images) isn't showing for me on PC or phone (android), using Chrome on both. I have to right click and open in a new tab to view them...

I'm having the same problem, I thought it was an update issue. It happens to images I upload here and post on other sites too.

For me, the image being asked about in This Thread does not show up. Might be the same issue.

I'm using an android tablet.

I’m only having this issue on my phone, and even then only once in a while.

Using this very thread as an example, here's what I see looking at some peoples' comments. Almost all broken images...as I'm sure this will be to many people it sounds like unless you click to see it in another tab or page.

Something similar is happening when I look at my scheduled comics. When I go to edit a page, the image for said page looks broken.

I don't think it's affecting the pages themselves though, as today's update looks perfectly fine from my comic page.

Edit: Also happens in the webpage editor. Images broken in editor, but look fine on the page.

That's odd, I haven't had any problems with images loading here lately :/ I use Firefox on my PC and uhh... the generic Samsung internet browser on my phone and they both work fine...

The Letter M:For me, the image being asked about in This Thread does not show up.

That image I can't see. Otherwise, I've not noticed any missing images. Did see a few comic pages seemingly out of order the other day. It's been a very long time since I last saw that.

I don't know if this is the thread for this, but I had a page disappear from the 2017 Halloween exchange.

Halloween 2017 Crossover Exchange

This was the unfinished version, Fantomah and Bleach Blond Valkiries of the Forth Reich

The finished version is lost, gone on some long ago laptop.

okay so I figured it out, it looks like the latest chrome update may block mixed content, i.e. HTTP images embedded in HTTPS pages. This isn't a problem on the webcomic sites themselves, but if the images are embedded elsewhere, chrome may block it. The webcomic sites are still on http, because dreamhost, our hosting company, doesn't support wildcard ssl certificates, this is one of the reasons we're planning to move servers. I was actually going to work on some monetization stuff next, to increase our server budget a bit more before we make the move, but this kind of throws a spanner into that plan a little bit.

So I think there is actually a way to get https on webcomic sites to work now that we're on a private server, but it involves doing the dreamhost equivalent of voiding the warranty, which means they may be more hesitant to admit fault if anything goes wrong on the server in the future. I'll also have to figure out exactly how to do it and make sure that I won't accidentally break anything. So uh, I'll do some research. I think if you click on the little i next to the URL bar, you may be able to allow mixed content in the interim

I'm not using chrome but that image didn't load for me...it's possible the author of the thread really did take it down though.

I managed to solve the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling my Chrome.
