Ni pictures showing up?

We have received a bunch of frustrated emails from the good citizens of Woodyboaterville complaining that there are no photos showing up on WoodyBoater when on an ipad. Now, we are getting this out there because through some detective work, have found that its older ipads. Roughly 25% of our readership, and growing. iphones are fine, but these old Ipads are having an issue. I asked if they had checked the usual issues. Restart, Smell for leaky fuel… etc.. Even went as far as googleing the topic. Yes, I went that far.. And nothing helpful. Just stuff about updating which has been done, clearing out the cache, and other stuff. The Boatress has an old ipad doing the same thing so I can experiment.

Works on newer ipads

Now, its also appearing on other websites, so, not sure if its in the ipad, or some sort of updated widget we are using and not knowing. We have looked, and we know how important that toilet seat from a Chris Crap is to you all. The good news is you can atleast read this text…. For whatever that’s worth… yeah.. Sorry about that. We are working on the issue, and if any of you ipadadytes have figured this out, be a hero today and let us know. For gods sake man, there are boat pictures being missed out there!

    The only thing I like more than checking woodyboater in the morning is my Ticonderoga #2 and a legal pad – no technical difficulties with either and I can doodle on the legal pad…and chew the pencil!

    Wow, so it’s not my classic iPad needing to be put out to pasture. I have been forced to use the desktop or Marianne’s iPad to view photos. Now that I know that the WoodyBoater FBI is on the case, I will wait for direction from the skipper about what I need to do to get back my photos. I have total faith!

    Nice to be reminded that my 1935 wooden boat is in fact more dependable than my iPad.

    Live the Analog life! Wait, no.. wait, We can fix your ipad problems.. Anyone have a fix? pilot light out?

    I am looking at the pictures on my IPad Pro and they look great. In fact yesterday I used the IPad and could even smell you and Stinky! Love this technolo0gy.

    Two choices. Update to a newer iPad or get some grand kids.
    I use the Jaxon peed on it story and go get a new one.
    OK that’s a third choice.

      Jim….my grandchildren are in charge of all my technical devices………One call that’s all.

    The pictures were not working with my normal iPad browser either… I assumed it was my problem, so was trying a few things and found that for some reason, in the ‘private’ setting it worked! Now both seem to be working!

    Thanks Floyd! I now know what my kids are getting for Christmas! Eye Pads, and maybe a Ticonderoga “stylus” or two.

    BTW, I don’t have an iPad and can’t help there, but do any iPhone iOS 11 users have any tips on how to get pictures taken with your phone (or past iPhones) to upload to the comments section here? I have tried a few different apps to resize and change file type but with unsatisfactory results. The old simple app I used to use doesn’t run on iOS 11 yet (ever?).

    John in Va.

    Don’t know what you did but all images are there today on my older IPad. My coffee taste so much better.

  11. Fred

    Same problem with my 2 year old iPad. No pictures. old laptop, Windows 7, pictures show up fine. Go figure? I am not buying a new iPad.

    WoodyBoater loads fine on my 6 month old ipad but I had to download Firefox to control the ads on facebook for it to work.

  13. Rick

    This is probably my son’s fault. He does something with the Cloud Overlay Services for Google. I don’t understand what that means either, but he probably turned something off.

      If you get everyone to get a new iPad will Apple be a new WoodyBoater sponsor?

  14. Richard Daley

    I have same problem as m fine
    Can not load pictures to comment section from my iPad
    Have 2 old and new iPad same problem will not load no matter what we try. Frustrating

  15. Randy

    … just another reason to stick with a ’90’s vintage ‘computer’ — no ipads, upads, wepads to complicate life = more free unfrustrated time to play with the boats!

    Untechnology rocks!

    I had the same issue recently, and found that disabling the JavaScript in settings helped. But only for this site, then all other sites had no pics. So for now it’s an extra step to view pics. Or just do it here while at work!

    Wow, there is supposed to be pictures on Woodyboater? I just read it for the articles…

  18. John Lisicich

    Aloha and happy Thursday!
    Working GREAT on my iPad Pro!
    Thank you for ALL THE GREAT stories! Love it!

    I don’t got no pitchers on my iPhone 4S. Probly the same as yer iPad. Somebody got it figgered out yet?

    It’s amazing how many spelling and grammar corrections I had to ignore to type those three sentences. How does Matt get through it every day?!?!?

  20. Jamie Smith

    My iPad 3 stopped showing Woodyboater pictures about 5 weeks ago. But, hallelujah after to-days story and the new widget my pictures are back! Thanks Matt and your crew for persevering on the issue

  21. Matt

    OHHHHHH! Yes, they have a North Korean hack squad working on taking down photos on old ipads. Its genius…

    The hosts on my usual talk radio show this morning were talking about this and basically said that older iPads are becoming obsolete for anything other than Candy Crush or Cookie Jam. They suggested turning them into serving trays since it no longer matters if you still your drink on it anyway.
