Hi Tom,

Done that, thank you.

Images are back but still two black bars on profile shot.

Out of interest how come other sites don't require you to clear caches? Is it automated somehow by them?

It's not a major thing but a bit of a pain as It signs me out of all of my numerous online accounts every time.

Perhaps a general message is needed in the feed for newer users (and me haha!) who aren't so tech savvy!

Thanks again,

Richard

Thos is an awfully complex question to answer. But in short, the infrastructure upgrade we're currently doing is to move away from caching and extensive use of databases to something called 'Elasticache' which is near real time search. This then removes the need for caches :) this is very similar to the tech facebook uses and will literally change the whole way the site shows objects (images)

Just wondering how long the upgrade is going to take?

Is the look of the site going to change?

Is there some sort of a bug right now? I can see all photos, but when I open them, in order to "view" - it shows nothing, just crashes. I am usually using my phone, but it is not working either on my laptop? H E L P? My internet is working perfectly well...
