Red Cross In website page

By john.cb1 ·
Can anyone tell me why i get a red cross in a small white box on a web page instead of the picture.

Is there any way or software that i can use to remedy this problem so i can see the picture on the web page

The red cross is a marker provided by your browser when it is unable to located the image which should be displayed. This is usually caused by a missing image on the webserver or an error in the website code which determines where your browser should pull the image from.
Neither of these can be resolved by the end user and must be resolved by the web administrator.

Try to locate the email address on the site for the email address of the person to contact who maintains the site. Send them an email and include the address on their site with the missing image. You can just copy and paste the web address into your email.

Hope this helps,

Ted

Most newer browsers have the option to turn off picture loading. In IE 6 it's on the Advanced tab in Internet Options (Show Pictures). In Mozilla, it's under Privacy & Security in Preferences (Accept all images). Hope this helps.

If this is happening a lot check you browser settings and what they say about pictures. In MSIE you got to Tools >> Internet Options >> Advanced tab and go through the list of actions.

About half way down should be a sub-heading Multimedia and it has the various settings re images, check that 'Show Pictures' and 'Smart Image Dithering' and 'Enable Automatic Image Resizing' are ticked. Without the resizing the system will only display the place holder if it thinks the image is way to big or way to small.

Can be your security setting in IE/Anti-virus has restricted access to the web site that houses the picture. I personally set mine to restrict spam sites which brings up the cute red boxes on all web sites, except micro-soft.

ie: ads.com.*, ad.doubleclick.*, etc,,,
