FIXED: Image Problems

    Just Ask Susanposted 2 years ago

    I've noticed yesterday and again today that pictures are not showing up on hubs. I'm in the middle of writing a hub myself and the picture just keeps saying loading.

      No, I went in to edit one of my music hubs today and noticed all the graphics I had made for people to print had disappeared. There seems little point in trying to edit or write new stuff if the old is not readily visible. My guess (and hope) is that it is a database issue that will sort out following maintenance.

      Yep, it appears that Hubpage's update broke something. I hate to say it but it is kind of like being on the old site lol. The system broken and traffic dropping. Cross fingers things get repaired quickly. I am not sure what to do. Correct them or wait?

        me too! just when I am in the mood for editing -

        Do you think HQs know or should I report it?

        1. MarieLB profile image87
          MarieLBposted 2 years ago in reply to this

          Yes please.  Can you report it cause I have no idea how.

          I have been trying to do this for the last 4 hours and all I get is empty squares.  It wont let me insert photos and it wont let me edit the hub in total.

          I have to keep editing each capsule.

          Something is defintely going wrong.

        CruiseReadyposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Unless you have a great deal of time to spend at one sitting, I think I would recommend waiting.  This morning, I spent just under 6 hours doing an edit job that should have taken 30 minutes or so.

        Not only was there the problem with images, but also with text capsules that sometimes wouldn't save, other times couldn't be edited, and new ones that wouldn't add without multiple page attempts and refreshes. 

        Also, the capsule order wasn't 'sticking.'  A refresh might fix the inability to add or edit text (or not) but would also disarrange module order, and  either remove previously added capsules or add back in ones that I had deleted. 

        Yes, I tried clearing cache (twice) and also closing/reopening browser, plus rebooting.  Nothing seemed to clear it up entirely, though occasionally it would be better for one or two capsule modifications. 

        On multiple occasions (more than a dozen) I got the 'something went wrong' message.

        Thank Heavens.  I was not doing anything wrong myself, then.

        I have been trying to upload an article for the last six hours.  All sorts of things kept going wrong.  I imagined that the photos were at fault, so kept trying fresh ones.  I tried to work on another computer, and the same happened.

        I was too anxious to have it up and gone, so did not think to get to the forum and maybe ask here.

        Silly, silly me.

        I did go checking things out at the Learning Centre, and isn't it strange that this problem with uploading photos seems to be a recurring one and coming from a long way back.

      Hi everyone!

      Our fabulous engineers have deployed a fix that should address most of the issues described herein. (Susan, I took a look at your Dexamethasone Hub and the lead image is showing.)

      If anyone is still experiencing issues, please clear your browser's cache and try loading the page again before reporting bugs.

      Thank you all for your patience, and happy Sunday!

        The issue is not fixed.

        I did clear my cache, cookies, and browser history, close and reopen browser.  Images on several of my articles are still showing only the broken image icon. Today's HOTD is also still showing broken images. Random articles on other people's profiles are still showing broken images.

        My complaint has nothing to do with images. It is about the total disappearance of articles. When I go to open a Hubpage all I see is a big blank white space - ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THERE. This is happening very frequently and this morning as I searched to interlink articles it was hitting every 2nd to 3rd article that I tried to open.

        I wish I had cottoned on to what was happening.  It would have been nice to be out in the sunshine.  Not to worry, my latest hub is up now and it is time for me to attend to other duties sad.

        I have searched all over the place but cannot work out the number that appears on the profile icon.  I cannot understand the bearing of it.

        These last few days, as the total of my hubs increased, and the page views shot up, the number on my profile is inching down.

        Is there anyone out there who can understand it?

        Cheers!  smile

    Almost all my photos are missing as well. Trying to fix pages is at a stand still.  How are we supposed to get done before Squidoo takes down the site with so many problems?  Has anyone made a plea to Squidoo to grant us the same grace period as HP has?

    1. LisaMarieGabriel profile image84
      LisaMarieGabrielposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      I am sure the photos (or at least some of them) are now on the HP database, but something is breaking the links or causing delays and difficulties loading them. If it is still happening tomorrow I shall get worried. Meanwhile as I am convinced, from other info relating to ad impressions I have on Goodreads, that low traffic is due simply to just that - not many folks about on line - I am just grateful this isn't happening at a peak time because obviously visitors are going to be disappointed.

      I'm with you on this one, favored. If I can't refer to Squidoo for those links broken on HP,
      I'll have to search everything out manually. Totally maddening.

    FYI there are serious issues with adding new images too.  You have to try to add them about 4-5 times before it will add.  Sometimes it never successfully adds the image.

      I am trying to create a hub also. Yesterday I got 7 photos uploaded before all went south. So I gave up and came back today to get 1 photo uploaded. I have been trying for an hour with no luck. I am at a stand still. It's nice to know it's not my PC as I have made all kinds of alterations to my setup. guess I can set it all back the way it was. Wondering now if I made a mistake choosing HP?

                I was using images from my "shared pictures" folder in my computer. when I was uploading I browsed to that folder to choose a pic. Now I just browse to my "Libraries / Pictures" folder and they upload fine.

    Just so everyone knows, on all the missing photos if you edit the capsule you can still see the photo even though it doesn't show on the hub page itself. This gives me some hope that I won't need to reload all my images. What a pain.

        If - like me - you cannot wait, I suggest you try again.

        I had the prob of the white static screen.  I had the title bar and nothing else.

        Being the impatient sort, I fiddled, rebooted,  did some more, rebooted.  Within a matter of minutes I was in, minus some buttons on the menu.

        EG:  It did not give me a SAVE UNPUBLISHED button, nor an EDIT button at some stage.  Just DONE and PUBLISH buttons which were no good to me.

        Be persistent. Try again or better still shut it down and dont look at it for a while.  I have to go out now, so phew. . . I wont give in and check every hour for a while!

    I can upload images now, but the number of views that my articles are receiving are running backwards. I don't mean that traffic is slowing down, I mean that rather than adding to the total number of views, it's actually subtracting them. This has been happening for the last 2-3 days.

      I think #bibliopola that we are experiencing a variety of rogue actions.  I think there is some corruption of the coding.  I imagine that some stuff which used to work seamlessly is not out of sync.

      Let us hope that when all is well again they will credit us with the points that seem to disappear from our pages.

      In the meantime, we can just use the time to do some research smile smile

      If you are from Squidoo and have book reviews showing the book, go to Amazon and download the picture of the book and upload it to your hub.

      They will not show up on your hub on your profile page if it say's "Buy Now"

I tried clicking on edit and yes, it was there so I saved but it still wasn't appearing on my hub. However, I deleted the photo, clicked on 'choose photos' and it was still there along with all my others, uploaded it to my capsule again and saved - this time it worked. :-)

          All the images on my hubs are broken too. The photos page in my account shows all my photos, but when I click My Photos in the image capsule, even the thumbnails of all of them are broken. Even the thumbnail of my profile photo is dead. I stopped bothering.

          I am not sure why it is taking so long, seems to be that something went horribly wrong when moving over the sX.hubimg.com servers (X for 1, 2 etc). I hope they are still working on it, because I don't even have some of the original photos on my harddisk anymore.

          At least HubPages.com seems to be reachable again, it was incredibly slow and/or not working yesterday. I guess that is a good sign?

      Hi Pateluday, I don't pay too much attention to the hub score so I can't answer that but I do want my readers to be engrossed in my hubs and I know the photos are a very important part of keeping them reading the articles so I spent the time deleting then re-adding the photos which worked for me.

      It would be useful if we were given a time scale on when this fault likely to be fixed but doing what I did seems to have resolved my issues (which is the same as yours and everyone else in this thread it seems) so I guess you can ride it out and let them continue working on it or spend a bit of time trying yourself.

      Fingers crossed for everyone that it's resolved soon :-)

        jenza20 Thanks! But hub score is an indicator of how close you are to what the publishing platform asks for. It improves your writing ability. Anyway photos are difficult to acquire hope everything is set right soon.

    What is really unsettling, is that one of the featured hubs that is on the main HubPages site, when we are not logged in, is not showing the "intro" photo. The one entitled "How to Organize Files" simply shows with a black box.

    Hopefully, today, all will be remedied. It's been a lot of work - and fun - adapting to HubPages when one was used to Squidoo, and this is one more thing to handle.

    At least most of us are in the same situation. That is some small comfort!

    The site has been slow and missing images all weekend, but it seems better for me this morning. I see from the comments that it isn't fixed for everyone.

    When there are sitewide problems, I recommend not trying to fix it yourself. In this case, don't touch your images, trying to fix them for yourself.  Write your hubs offsite (on Word) and wait to transfer them when the site is back up and running.  You'll save yourself a lot of frustration, and system resources.

  28. Millionaire Tips profile image90
    Millionaire Tipsposted 2 years ago

    I wrote a post to say that the image problems seem to have been fixed and the site is running faster, but I got a message that the post had been moved somewhere else.  Then when I hit the back button so I could copy what I wrote and pasted it again so I could see where the post had been moved, it told me I had already posted in this forum.  When I go to forum messages under "your", it says I posted here, but my post isn't here. 

    So apparently all the site issues have not been fixed. smile

    Anyway, my point is that you shouldn't try to fix things while the site is having issues. I wouldn't even try to write a hub. Save yourself some serious frustration, and save the system resources.

          I would say that if things don't look right to you, then they are not resolved.  If I had images in place and they are no longer there, I would look to HubPages to fix that, and not do my own fix, unless they tell me they have done all that they can do.

            Well mine are resolved. I fixed myself. As advised by hubpages staff. Sadly not the case for everyone so again, if hubpages staff would send a 'fresh' update for those who were unsuccessful in resolving these issues, that would help. To the best of my knowledge,  Hubpages have not requested anyone to not resolve the issues but did make a suggestion how to fix it and to be fair, those of us that have resolved are only trying to help those who haven't. I really think hp staff should be updating this rather than us getting into a debate over whether or not we should fix ourselves

    HP-
    Are you fixing the photos or are you leaving it to us to comb through our articles (some of us have hundreds!) to hunt for broken images and re-upload them ourselves?

    I can see from checking random articles that original uploads  are fine, but the 520-pixel wide and 260-pixel wide jpg renderings that display on many articles are not showing up.  For example, on yesterday's HOTD the original of the lead photo is good.

    http://s1.hubimg.com/u/11740716.jpg

    but the 520-pixel wide rendering (that readers see) is bad

    There's another photo further down in the article whose original is good

    but whose 260-pixel wide rendering is bad

    This weekend our engineering team worked on migrating our data centers to a new location. This is causing high load times sitewide and may affect the functionality of other parts of the site (e.g., Hub Stats). The missing images issue is mostly fixed, but if you come across new examples today (calculus-geometry, we are looking into the ones you provided) please post them.

      Hi Marina,

      To be honest I find it a bit disturbing to hear you see that the images problem is "mostly fixed". Because I can clearly see that it is not, I feel perhaps you haven't found the true cause yet have stopped looking for one?

      Are you sure you want each and every individual member to come forward, is that your solution?

      If it has to be, ALL the images in my hubs are messed up:

      http://tarayates.hubpages.com/

      That includes the thumbnails in the photo capsule where I pick the photos from my gallery. Even my thumbnail that is used here on the forum is messed up.

        @tarayates; I have just been and had a look at your hubs and the missing images are Amazon books.

        They will not show up on your hub on your profile page if it say's "Buy Now"

        Go to Amazon and download the picture of the book to your computer and then upload it to your hub in a photo capsule.

        Put the Amazon "to buy" capsule of the book further down the hub.

        I have done mine they are all working now.

          Hi Marina, you are right. It wasn't yesterday, but during the day today it seems to have been fixed. Many thanks!

          Tip for others in this situation: check multiple browsers. Chrome in particular is extremely aggressive with its caching, it is not enough to reload the page. Once only one of your browsers is 'misbehaving', the problem is basically solved on HP's end and you are down to merely a caching issue on your end.

    I'm worried about how this slow load time is affecting our traffic, bounce rate, and the time spent by visitors on the page. The longer this goes on, the more chance it has of affecting our google rankings. It's been 4 days, which seems a tad excessive for any technical problem.

    1. tarayates profile image85
      tarayatesposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      I agree. The HP responses in this thread are also far from reassuring. I don't get the impression that they even consider it a major issue, but rather a few isolated little problems here and there...

      I don't know what else we can do. I wish HP would just acknowledge the problem.

    2. Marina Lazarevic profile image87
      Marina Lazarevicposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Thomas, the slow load times are mostly impacting signed in users. Most of what we serve to signed out users is heavily cached and doesn't touch the database much. You can see for yourself by visiting one of these publicly available pages:
      http://stats.pingdom.com/y2olaj4ezmiv/36305
      http://stats.pingdom.com/y2olaj4ezmiv/56526

      Please don't interpret the lack of frequent updates to mean that we don't care about or aren't working on the issue. We care as much as you do about keeping the site running smoothly. HubPages engineers worked the entirety of this past weekend and well past midnight the last few nights. They are working as fast as they can to get everything back to normal. The HubPages team is small relative to other web companies; successfully migrating data centers takes time and a lot of hard work. We acknowledge that the slow load times are frustrating and worrisome to folks -- fixing them is our number one priority right now.

      Thank you, everyone, for your patience and understanding as our engineers continue to work on this.

    I went through each of my 18 hubs (I feel for Hubbers with over 25). I found three hubs with images that weren't displaying. When I went in to edit and reupload the pictures, I found that the original thumbnail and image source info was still there. This helped me to figure out which was the missing image. I reuploaded it, c/p'd the text and then deleted the original thumbnail.

    Here's is the rub. There are still broken image icons in the recent images box on my profile page. I can't for the life of me figure out which images those are since all of my hubs seem to now have active images.

    Posting in forums still acting up. Hitting submit appears not to work but then you find your post was posted. A window pops up after a very slow wait saying "This website not working, reload." I also thought I saw someone's post disappear.

    Edit: When a poster thinks the post didn't go through, they hit submit again or click reload and a second post is posted. This is why some forums have duplicate and triple, and even multiple posts. You don't realize it until you go back to the forum. Spooky and annoying. What I have done is delete my duplicate post.
