Problem Viewing Galleries

Not me, but a freind I posted the link to - been through all the usual firewall and windows IE stuff - does anyone know of any issues that may not be apparent to an IT Biff like me?

Is this galleries on here? TPF only galleries, or in general?
What's actually happening?

It depends on which link you sent him as hotlinking prevention is currently active for all galleries.
If you send him the link like the one below but to your gallery instead of mine it should work and from there your friend should be able to navigate around fine.

http://www.thephotographyforums.com/.../Steves-photos

If you link to any futher in from a different domain, it will block you

It prevents anyone linking to your pictures from some other webspace..ie knicking our badwidth but using the [img] tags on their site

The above will lead him straight to your top level album (the one that holds all your sub albums of pictures as you have it set up) Any futher in will activate the hotlinking. I just tried to see

That's what I sent - it's worked fine with other users, just not hers - I thought it might be a firewall prob, but she says not and has even had remote assistance check it out...

Baffled...

has your lady friend tried cut/paste the url direct to browser? If not, navigate in to the meain site and then to the galleries, it SHOULD work as Steve has stated above, though sometimes a link to an image takes you to the site home page(i think msn bombs you out this way)

OK she can get to the page, but the images themselves won't open.
Hang fire for a while - she's gone to Tesco for more biccies (not for me, unfortunately - she's in Yorkshire and I'm still in the Beautiful South), so I can't talk her through it just yet.

i think it is a firewall issue, tell her to set it to allow this domain, and it will work fine i tells ya...

if she views the forums, can she see the smilies?

Not sure what FW she uses - prob Windows...

THIS is exactly the problem I've been trying to describe (sorry for potentially hijacking the thread, Rob)... Gallery images (as well as some of the icons) were not visible on my home machine. At the moment, though, they're fine...

Cheers, Chris,
Pop Up blocker enabled, I think.
I've told her (when she gets home) to go to Tools>pop up blocker>settings> allowed sites.
Hopefully this will sort things out.

Let me know if you have any more dramas, Chris.

And thanks to Steve and Matty for the prompt responses.

I know that there has been other answers since you wrote the above but if others can see it and she can't then whatever the problem is, it is definately at her end or her ISP. Not much help but if you can report back your progress as you try things we will do our best to help at this end.

Many thanks - I think it's been the IE firewall all along - I've sent the same link to dozens of other peeps with no probs.
I know she frequents chat rooms and similar so may have a higher protection level than most of us.

Seeing as I'm apparently not the only one to be hit by this issue, would it be an idea to have this info as a sticky in the Rules and Announcements forum?

Well it is on our list of things to do but unfortunately we are a small team and other things keep getting in the way honest

You are right though, consider it added to our "to do" list

She's getting to the web page but the images appear as red X's she's on a dial-up connection as well.

Still trying - she has an older version of IE by the sound of iut so I'll get her to update overnight.

It could be that dialup is causing the problem, although I doubt it.
With her still using dialup, is she using some ISP's own software?
Either to dialup or to browse (Like the BT Yahoo browser), rather than a proper version of IE.?
ISP software usually comes with crippling software, so could be the place to look.
