Why don't some things load on DU

I see a post, the answers suggest there should be a picture or video, but I can't see it.

Any ideas?

1. if you're at work

some sites that the images are being hosted by may be blocked by corporate firewall.

3. Use the F12 button

view your network activity.
each Get request will have a status.
When a response status is 200, that is successful.
300's are usually redirections to other locations. 400's are miserable failures.

Could be an ad blocker, hosts file or a DNS server issue.

4. try using a different browser like chromium

 

It appears to be a DNS issue but sometimes a an addon to your browser will block it. An antivirus blocker (addon)might actually block temporarily while checking it out for nefariousness. not necessarily a bad thing. but it might forget to give it to you after checking it out.
