    On my old XP computer at work, all image links are broken & I can't post. Chrome & Firefox both have this problem.

    I've cleared cookies & cache but no luck.

    Thoughts?

    Have you always used this computer and it suddenly stopped working?

    No-it's been hit or miss. Mostly miss though. Only worked a couple times. Probably for the best otherwise I'd be posting more...but my OCD won't allow something to be broken.

    Sounds like the cdn is being blocked from serving the images and the js required to post.

    Do all your other computers work fine?

    Good question-the XP laptop is where I do all my browsing. My desktop is running Windows 7 & I've never tried it. Just checked & I can't post from there either. No problems from home or my phone.

    I can post on other forums, so I'm not sure why this one is affected.

    can you open this image in a web browser?
    Code:
    http://rod.athome1.netdna-cdn.com/data/avatars/s/0/126.jpg?1382376369
    Also what url are you using?

    ramsondemand.com

    or www.ramsondemand.com

    The link is blocked by the security filter. I'm guessing that's the problem.

    Using the "www" version.

    Kind of weird why they would block a cdn.. But that is your culprit. The images and the js that is needed to post and view images is being blocked. You have any blocking be done locally on your browser?

    I have Adblock Plus running, but I don't think it's blocking anything on this site.

    It shouldnt be.. I have it turned off on this site just to be sure.

    Is it something you can ask your sys admin why it is being blocked?

    I've since turned off Adblock, but no help.

    Asking the sys admin would be fruitless. They're not exactly helpful.

    I don't know how to do that. I'm not that savvy.

    At least we identified the problem, now it is just a matter of working around it.

    Can magically post on this computer today. Couldn't yesterday. Fingers crossed it doesn't change back.
