I also don't see any pictures. Just checked in Bing, I can see the pics; in Firefox I can't.

Yes, on my home computer the pix also do not show up. Microsoft windows 10 latest version laptop Using Chrome. Wonder what's happening? Chris?
I CAN see pix on other threads with the home computer.
I usually use my Apple device for this site.

Edit: I also called up this thread using Edge. I never use Edge. But, No pix. Hm
Downloaded Firefox. Logged into the site. Still no pix for me using Firefox. Weird.
Used Bing. Yep, there's all the pictures again.

I need to correct my terminology, I don't use the Microsoft browser very often. It was in fact Microsoft Edge where I could see the pics.

Hi Folks,



It's probably all the security crap they force us to use now.


The want us to run encrypted connections on https but then of course, many people link images from other sites which break the secure connection anyway.


If we don't run on https, then even a casual visitor gets a warning that the site isn't secure which isn't really true. We aren't running a bank here, it's a site for boating pictures, but everyone is forced now to run on encrypted connections or visitors get browser warnings and penalized by Google.



For what it's worth, the pictures show for me fine on Firefox and edge no problem.


The real problem is that we really need to update the forum software to something more modern. I updated Endless Boating some time ago and the software there XenForo is much better.



It's really off topic in this thread I know - my fault...


...But what do you folks think if we change software platforms?


It would mean a big change, but it would also allow us to have a much more user friendly platform especially for mobile and tablets.


We kind of have an older crowd here though and I thought it might be hard for some to learn a new software platform and it might frustrate them.



Let me know your thoughts.



-Chris

I agree, the only reason I use a desktop is that I'm on one all day at work.

I'm up for changing it. Incidentally shortly after my last post I started being able to see the pics in this post.


Lastly, I'd like to thank everyone who voted for my pic, I'm proud to finally have a pic of the month!
