Hello GAWoods!
Are you trying to attach an image?
If so, this can explain it alot better than I can :
Android Forums FAQ

Or are you having an issue viewing images in other folks posts?

I am not trying to attach an image. Just viewing post, if there is an image in the post, say a screen shoot, it appears as a broken icon for me.

I have this problem in the browser on my phone. If this is where the problem is occurring then open your browser and simply hit your menu button or key and select "Request desktop site". This works for me so hopefully it works for you!

Yes I can view the test image. I read many post where someone has posted a screen shot or something similar when describing an issue but instead of the pic there is a small icon that looks like a broken link.

Well, that could very well be an issue with the way they posted it.
It may not be on your end at all.
How does this screenshot look?

Yes that is what I see in many post. So you are saying the problem is more in the way the poster is attaching the photo rather than on my end?

Exactly
Sometimes I'll see the broken image, and just to be sure, I'll refresh the page and then it may show

Hey, Mikestony... I was trying to figure out this very problem. In this post I see nothing at all except the text. I also see nothing at all in the your next post about the broken link. Some times like this post Photo thread I see 2 diamond shapes with questions marks in them. Same results on mobile app, mobile chrome browser, as well as Chrome, IE, and Firefox on pc. I can however view the test image you posted. What does this mean?

Please help!

Try to clear your pc browser cache and cookies to see if that helps on the computer side.?

Maybe try to do that on your phone too? I rarely use the mobile app for AF or a browser on my phone, so I don't know if you can clear any cookies on the phone browser....I always use Tapatalk.

It's odd that you can only see my test image screen pic though

Nah, it shouldn't be but just to be sure, go into your user control panel/edit options:
http://androidforums.com/profile.php?do=editoptions
then scroll down to "Thread Display Options" and under "Visible Post Elements",
the "show images" box should be checked.

Alright, I cleared browsing history and tried again on PC. Both the screenshot and broken link show up as a white rectangle with a red X in it.

You have that issue with Chrome, IE, and Firefox? What version of windows are you using?

Hmm, I'd have to do some more research on your issue.
I'm sure there is some setting that needs to be changed, or perhaps Flash updated or Java updated, but to be honest, I'm kinda clueless beyond what I suggested
Let me see if I can get more eyes on this for ya

I can add that the two little diamonds with question marks in them are displaying correctly for you. They're ascii symbols, rather than broken images. If you quote my post you should see them in the text editor: ��

I run into a lot of broken images, as my work's firewall/proxy blocks access to a lot of the popular file sharing sites (dropbox, drive, etc).

You can right-click on the broken image and do "Copy Image URL" (or something to that extent) to see if the image might be hosted on a site blocked for you.

Are you at work, a library, or using a connection behind a firewall or filter? At work I can't see anything from imgur. I don't get broken links or anything.

Codesplice, though I had to right click. properties. copy the image location that way I have figured out that work firewalls block photobucket. Now to figure out the issue at home...
