Images and banners

ALSO:

After I post, or, if I get to a message with an image and embedded banner ad I cannot scroll past it.

Problem solved (or at least understood!) We use a service called MaxCDN (https://www.maxcdn.com/) to serve up content for the site, like images and javascript. The idea being the site loads faster, as wherever you are in the world, those assets will be stored somewhere nearby.

I checked their status page today here: http://status.maxcdn.com/ and they reported some issues in Frankfurt data centre, my guess is that had some impact on loading the page, for whatever reason - not sure why it should if you're in the UK, but maybe it was routing the assets from there for some reason.

Anyway, hopefully they'll have everything resolved before tomorrow, and the site will load normally again. Will keep an eye on this thread.

MajorMagnum, I've purged the cache on MaxCDN, see if that makes any difference now. If not, can you look for one of the broken images, then grab its url, and try doing a traceroute to it and send me the results at support@trade2win.com

I think we managed to get to the bottom of the problem. Basically our CDN network changed some of the ip addresses they use, but they didn't tell us, so those new ips were getting rejected by the firewall we set up after the DDOS attacks. Now we've updated the ips that are allowed and so it should be fine again. Looks like they just changed it a few days ago, and they have lots of ips, so would explain why some members have had problems whilst others haven't.

Thanks again everyone for reporting the issue, and do let me know if you have any further issues. I'm hoping not!

FYI the search feature in the Reviews section is now working again.

It was coming up blank, but now the results show normally again.

Here's how some of the forum's folders appear to me, today (please excuse the tongue-in-cheek but irresistible comment that the lack of all text is certainly "one way of not seeing all the spam and self-promotional posting"! ;) ) ...
