SP images being hosted by new server

I noticed this yesterday!

Postby silversummit » Fri Nov 20, 2009 2:22 pm

And now sometimes when I click on a picture to enlarge it after thumbnail view, I get a request asking how I want to open each jpeg (Picasa etc.). Some pictures enlarge fine but others bring up that message. I didn't explain that very well....

I'm using the latest Firefox.

Something has very definitely changed since early yesterday!

I use Firefox also, but this auto-opening menu for jpegs doesn't happen outside SP. I don't really understand it; all modern browsers know how to display jpegs directly.

The images are permanently hosted on a new server, but the name will hopefully change soon to something like images.summitpost.org (once the RackSpace Cloud allows CNAMEs).

Yes, I've noticed this as well when using Firefox. I'm not sure why sometimes it opens in the browser and sometimes it opens the image on your local machine. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to it.

I am seeing the dreaded red X, and some of the photos are not showing up on my profile at all. Simply white squares. All of the title and description info appears, but not the photos themselves.

Hmmm, which photos exactly? Looking at your profile, all of the images on your profile page show (the squares) and I went through some of the image pages and they all showed for me.

I've seen this with every browser I've used, when the connection to the server is poor and there are fits and starts in loading.

This happened to me at work yesterday morning with my profile picture using IE. I'm at home today using Firefox.

I've only run a handful of tests (with Firefox), but it seems to be related to the extension of the image file: .jpg is good and .JPG is bad.

Can we be told whats going on and why? It sounds interesting, is there a little blurb in another thread about the nature of the change?

Anyway, best of luck getting it all working!

I've had this problem when writing one of my pages, heard this explanation too, but some of my pics were visible only with .jpg and some others only with .JPG, couldn't work it out.

Yeah that's quite common and I find it quite annoying... anyway, don't wanna sound uptight, so take your time Matt and thanks for your good work :)

Thanks, I just repeated that with my SP-hosted images, and that's exactly what I got, in about 10 trials. Puzzling; I would think the client-side app decides if an image will be displayed in browser window. My browser displays local images correctly whether they are JPG or jpg.

I can't see why it would make a difference (even knowing that the server OS is case-sensitive), but maybe the server folks need to associate both jpg and JPG with images.

This is happening to me as well. Strangely, if I use Craig's computer it's fine -- only on mine cannot seem to load the images. We are both running XP with IE.
