After removing Norton antivirus from my Mac, I am not able to see all the little pictures on the Microstockgroup webpages anymore. Safari or Firefox. Anybody know how I get them back?

Post hoc ergo propter hoc.  Removing Norton has nothing to do with it.  None of the glyphs are showing up for me either.  I'm guessing it's a hosting problem on the forum.

Looks like all the glyphs are supposed to come from a host called cloud.microstockgroup.com.  My DNS server doesn't recognize that hostname, and neither does the one at my web provider.  Bad, bad Leaf!

I'd say IS hacked the site, but that would be silly, they can't even manage their own site.  ;D

No problem here.  PC with Windows Vista and Firefox 17.xxx.

And it works on my laptop at the office.  My guess is that this is a new host and not all the DNS servers know about it.

I think things should be fixed now.. but it might take an hour or two for everything to look normal.  The problem is on my end not yours.

technical answer: I have had the site traffic running through cloudflare but just stopped using that service today - mostly because cloudflare also blocks the IP address of the user which makes it very hard to keep ahead of the trolls / spammers. ... so instead of cloudflare resolving the DNS's, my server host is now resolving them.  I had to make a few updates to the server host settings and messed up.  I think it is fixed now though but might take time for the proper settings to be propagated everywhere.

Let me know if things don't look better by tomorrow.

It's very weird but for some reason I can't put my links to Shutterstock or Depositphotos. It won't take and keep my username but does for all the others.
What am I doing wrong.  :(

Just checking - both those require your user ID number not username. Made that mistake myself with SS link some time ago! Regards, David.
