Linked images not viewable in Chrome browser
« on: November 25, 2020, 11:27:58 PM »
In the middle of a guitar building thread by Sorveltaja, some regular users reported no longer being able to see the thread images. The problem was traced to a Google Chrome change that automatically blocked linked images from http sites. It apparently only allows showing embedded images from https (secure certificated) sites.

This did not seem to affect other browsers (Mozilla based, eg. Firefox, and Chromium reported so far). The Chrome user work arounds reported were changing the Chrome settings to allow non-secure content on this site. Please see the following thread for specifics:,13258.0.html
I love it when a Plan B comes together!

I just noticed that images are now visible in Chrome on Android devices!

Either Google has changed its policy or Eric has changed something.
