Exclamation * PSA * -- Displaying and viewing pics...PLEASE READ!

All,
Seeing many posts that members cannot see posted pics in a thread. A cursory check reveals almost every person who posts this does not have their profile set to view images.
Some members previously had this enabled, and now it's not...most likely some of the latest updates to the site reset them.

Here's how you fix that:

1. Click on “User CP” (far left in blue header bar at top of page)
2. On the left side, scroll down to “Settings and Options” category, and click on “Edit Options”
3. Scroll down to “Thread Display Options”
4. Make sure “Show Images” is checked (see attached pic below)
5. Ensure you click "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page before exiting.


Beyond that, there are some members who are still reporting they can't see posted images.
This has more to do with your OS and/or the type of browser you are using.
Firefox seems to be more problematic than Edge, Explorer, Chrome and Safari (Apple users).
If you have your profile set to display images as per the instructions above, then possibly try a different device and/or browser.

Regards,
Rob

If that setting is used, BB coded images from imgur will NOT display.

Thank you for your informative response! I had a related problem, could not post to the forum. The solution was in the same UserCP Edit Options list, in my case to change the Message Editor Interface option. Yes, Firefox was the culprit. A recent browser "upgrade" removed the viability of the CMP Forum full WYSIWYG editor for some reason. My fix came as a result of reviewing your solution to the image presentation problem, so thanks again for your insight!

You are most welcome!
And thank you for sharing a useful tip with everyone...I had forgotten that the choice of editor can make a difference within certain OS’s/browsers.
Not to mention, the various resets and forum software updates can inadvertently change some users’ settings to something other than what they had selected previously.
I will update the pic in my OP to reflect what you found.

Thanks and regards,
Rob
