After the update to jetpack 2.1.2, the widget displays a broken link instead of thumbnail image (images are JPEG). I have checked the media gallery and all images are OK. http://lumeaparalela.ro/
Before the update, everything was OK.
I really like your plugin and I would not like to deactivate it.
I’m having the exact same problem. I am running Jetpack, but I do not have Photon enabled. Any other suggestions??
EDIT: It may not be the EXACT same, but it’s hard to say. When I clear my cache the photos show up. But if I come back to the site the next day the images again display as broken links. I can’t very well have our users refresh their cache on each visit! 🙂
I am not running Jetpack and I still have issues using this widget. Can’t seem to find a reason. Looks like I will have to deactivate the plug in until I can resolve it. I need to have a thumbnail on the random post.
