Is anyone else only seeing the ALT text for graphics, and not getting the graphics themselves?

I still have no graphics.  Am I still the only one?  Would someone at Escape Artists like a screenshot so they can see what I'm talking about?

It just started happening last week.  For the longest time I still had graphics.

Apparently the problem is that I'm using the Opera browser.

Was an update done recently to SimpleMachines?

hmm thats weird.  try goin thru the options on your browser, make sure it isnt blocking any images.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Did that.  It's not set to block anything.

I can right-click and reload the images, but every time I close and reopen Opera it clears them out of the cache.

It's only happening to this site, too.

*shrug* I'll deal with it.  Not really a big deal.

Some firewalls selectively block images... for example at work I cannot see anything from Photobucket, which means right now 75% of the avatars are bocked.  That is Corporate paranoia, however, it could give the illusion graphics aren't working depending on the source of said graphics...

Yeah, the weird thing is, in other browsers, the graphics work.  It's just Opera.  *shrug*

Sounds like the next step is to find another forum using SMF and see if the graphics load from there.  Then you know if it's SMF or EP.

Problem solved!

Apparently in Opera, SHIFT-I turns images on or off for a site, and Opera remembers your preferences.  I must have hit it by accident.

So, yay!  Graphics again!
