On Sunday, I got an email from someone that photos weren’t showing on my website. But I couldn’t replicate the problem on Windows, in Chrome, Firefox or IE, or with an Apple online emulator. But on Monday and Tuesday I got two more emails from other people reporting the same thing – with one common element, they were using Safari as their browser. I was scratching my head, though, because my website was showing up fine in my Safari emulator. So I started digging online, and lo and behold, the glitch that doesn’t display images only happens with Safari version 9 (my emulator uses 8), and with some, but not all, WordPress sites and themes. No problem using Firefox on a Mac; it’s purely a Safari issue.
It took most of the day to right this ship. (Yes, I do all my own web stuff.) But the really great thing about this kind of glitch is that it shows how many people are invested in this website, and will take the time to email me when something isn’t working. On those (thankfully, very rare) occasions when my website goes completely down, I’ll get a few texts or emails within an hour with a heads up.
Hopefully it’s all fixed now.
