ZOT! Photo Posting Mystery (Just a Spam Vanity)

Posted on 01/06/2011 6:27:32 PM PST by plinyelder

As an experiment, I created a web page at sites.google.com.

I uploaded a photo there and then posted that photo on the forums board at Ebay.

Here's where the 'teaser' comes into play .. I am the only one that can see it!?

I built the page and posted it using the Opera browser.

Now if I use Chrome, Firefox or IE to view the same photo at the same forums .. I can't see it!?

Even if I delete my cookies in Opera and sign out of my Ebay account .. I can Still see the photo but nobody else can .. Even if they are using Opera!?

Not really any kind of emergency or problem (I Did say vanity) to overcome it's just as I said .. a teaser .. for sure.

I have that same picture posted in this message below and .. I can see it but .. Can You?

Funny thing .. If you click on the picture that you can't see .. right click and copy and paste the url for the picture .. paste it into your address bar and click .. The picture opens regardless of what browser your on!

Wild guess but sometimes you think you are sending someone a picture as an attachment or inserting it in some document, you check it an the picture appears correctly but what you really posted,attached or inserted is a link to the file on your hard drive, the link works for you cause it is on your hard drive but it doesn’t work for anyone else because obviously they do not have access to your hard drive.

SO make sure whatever you are posting, attaching or inserting is an actual file not a link.

Not a link per say.
It is an image url and I can see it but .. You can’t.

I know something about website and page building.

The only difference is .. In one image, I’m using google’s website image/hosting site to post the image, (the one that only I can see) and the one that Everyone can see is hosted on photobucket.

Same html coding .. just different hosts.

No. Good idea. Why don't you take him over there, maybe hang out for awhile and make sure he doesn't get lost. It's always been linked here:

or here's the short-cut:

I pinged you to the sandbox, if you want a place where you won't get heckled while you experiment.

It's a good place to try stuff out. I'll be watching my pings for the next hour or so and if you reply to my post to you, I'll actually be helpful instead of snarky. ;)

I understood. Problem is some websites do not allow referencing images on hosts other than their own. If you created a webpage on googlegroups(?) and referenced the image (<IMG SRC=...>) on that page, we all could go to that webpage and view the image there.

Happens to me all the time when I search for images to post on FR and it turns up with the proverbial red X box. So now I test it by writing the code, eliminate and windows I may have open with that image, clear my cache, then preview the post to see if craps out on me.

I believe the challenge is when Google uploads the image, it doesn’t add a file type extension or it adds in data after the file extension at the end (such as after the .jpg in your URL). Most browsers now can still handle that, but your browser may not be recognizing to display the image correctly.

This used to be an old issue people had with Netscape or early IE browsers.

I’ll dig around to see if I can find a solution.
