Since a few days, inline images do not show and instead

Text appears. Tapping does not show the image either. (I've included the screenshot here, yet it doesn't show to me!!)

    Shows done for me right now. Probably either a network issue your end or an issue with imgur (try posting an image hosted somewhere other than imgur)

  • Could you see the screenshot? I still can't. And I cannot see other images too and that's the problem. Oct 21, 2017 at 12:18
  • I've tried imgur.com and I guess it's blocked, cannot be reached. This also explains why I can't see images. Can stackexchange produce a workaround to this problem or shall we wait (a few years?)? Oct 21, 2017 at 12:21

    if imgur is blocked from your end then not much SE can do about that

  • SE can take this issue as a feature request, hopefully. Which may bring up interesting new opportunities for them. Oct 21, 2017 at 12:40
  • Feature request to do what? Change image hosting? It will just be blocked too. You're using some very strict ISP, that's all. Oct 21, 2017 at 22:07
  • Imgur apparently has been blocked not by an isp but by a country and probably not for something that was posted by/for SE. Therefore, SE may think of a workaround for this issue. Though they are not obliged to.. Oct 22, 2017 at 5:28

On my iOS I can see your screenshot, please check your iOS, possibly a network error on your side. (proxy, firewall that block content type, etc...)

I see Turkcell as a provider, if in Turkey I know the state often block some site by blocking DNS resolution.

nb; Added my comment as answer to show you my printscreen.

Apparently this situation arises when and if the image cannot be reached, on the net.

In this particular case, imgur (that apparently hosts all images posted on SE) cannot be reached.

Sometimes, some domains are blocked, and most probably imgur is currently a blocked web domain.

I don't know how important this issue would be for SE. I've found out that it's not a bug that SE experiences.

However, this can be seen as a feature request to have redundancy of image sources. If one does not load, load the secondary one, or use a different server/domain for people with access issues.
