XF 1.5 Image Proxy not retrieving images


Well-known member
I recently enabled the Image Proxy feature on our forum, and there are cases where images are not being fetched.

With the settings I have in the capture below, would the image(s) be refreshed after one day if there had been a problem fetching when them image initially? If the image was attempted to be refreshed and it no longer exists, would the cached image then be used?

I notice that we are able to manually recache the image so I have been attempting to do this from the Image Proxy Log. However, each time I click [Show Image] it fails to fetch the image and so shows the placeholder (still).

Thank you for any comments.

Refetching really only applies to successfully fetched images. Unsuccessful attempts apply a lengthening delay in retrying until eventually the failure becomes permanent (unless manually refreshed).

You should use the image proxy tester (under tools) to get a more specific reason why a particular image isn't loading.
