    BB Browser Displaying Pics.

    Advertisement



    How come when I go to a webpage that has a lot of pictures, not all of them will show up. Only about the first 20 or so will be there the rest will be just be placeholders. Granted I am talking about a lot of pics. (anywhere from 50 to 200). I realize it is due to memory, but is there a way to fix it so they all show up?

    Have you checked you browser settings?
    Content Mode:WML & HTML
    Show Images: Yes
    Show Image Placeholders: Yes
    Make sure all options are checked

    Also, could you please let me have the link you are talking about. I have gone to many sites that have tons of images and it does take a long time to load, but I still have seen them all. One site in particular had about 50 pictures, and each one I was able to view.

    ...oh, 'show image placeholders' should be on? Hmm, what does that actually do, or allow?

    Hardcorp, have you tried changing the emulations modes? I am using BlackBerry and can see each picture just fine, I went on my pc and matched them up. 131 images to be exact.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The emulation mode does not seem to effect it and I'm am currently on a differant network and still no change.

    Does anyony know if there is a size limit for the webpages? On Opera Mini it will only show 3-5 pics at a time because of a size limit.

    If there is can it be changed?

    Re: BB Browser Displaying Pics.

    I get this problem sometimes when there are a huge number of images, and the site I'm opening is slow. It hasn't really bothered me as I can always do the Menu/Get Image thing if I really want to see the images. It occurs most on www.neatorama.com and boingboing.net. I think it may be a timing thing or a cache size thing. Haven't figured out how to correct it yet.

    Hope this helps.

    I don't think the emulation mode will help here - just sounds like the browser tries to keep things light.

    I believe the browser just downloads the first few images to save bandwidth and to keep page rendering responsive. You can probably do a "Download More Images" from the browser menu while on the page - note that you will have to wait a bit for the request to finish which is a pain - nothing that I know of can be done on that front I'm afraid. Even if there is a download all images menu item, it's unlikley that all will download if there are quite a few of them - I'd try sticking to "Download More Images" and see if that helps.

    Perhaps someone else knows more than this or can straighten me out on it as well
