Support » Plugin: Smart Image Loader » Images disappear on Android devices

  • Resolved konehead


    Thank you for developing the Smart Image Loader.
    However, I discovered a problem on android devices only. Certain images would not display. Very much like they were invisible. I discovered this when viewing on a Nook Tablet, and an HTC One X Android smart phone. The images displayed correctly on iPhone, iPad, and desktop computers.

    Once I turned off the Smart Image Loader plugin, all images displayed correctly on a refresh.

    Hope this helps you to uncover the problem.

    I looked into the issue. For some reason some images do not have an according noscript tag which holds the image source. This only occurs on older Android versions with the stock browser. Newer devices using Chrome do not seem to be affected.

    What i found does not make sense: the html markup is the same for every device since it’s generated server side, the tags have to be there. So i assume JS does not find them (in fact there is no trace of them looking at their parents innerHtml). But it does find SOME of them, although all have exactly the same syntax.

    I’ll look further into it.

    Well it’s an android bug, but i found a workaround.

    Please update the plugin to get the fix.
