[pmwiki-users] Chrome blocks my farm-served images - any workarounds?

Chrome's behavior is even odder than I had thought.

I directly entered the URL for the small image, as you suggested. It was displayed. After I did that, the image displayed in both my farm and local wiki. However, I then noticed that my farm wiki *didn't* display another small image for which I hadn't directly entered a URL. I had thought that under Chrome the farm was displaying all the images while the local wiki wasn't - but apparently that was not the case.

I tried looking at Chrome's developer tools' network panel, as you suggested. At first, it listed the image, and the image also appeared on the browser page. On another tab, however, I have the same exact URL, and yet no image - even if I refresh. 

To make matters more confusing: when I opened the developer tools Chrome told me to refresh the page to see the network activity. Each time I do that, I usually briefly see the image listed (The Initiator is "Other" whatever that means), then it disappears from the list. However, at one point it didn't disappear from the list, so I could look at it clearly, but it's gone again now.

One thing I'll mention in case it is potentially relevant: I have a password set on my web directory. But that shouldn't matter - Chrome IS receiving the image, and even displaying it sometimes.

It's bizarre to be looking at two Chrome windows with the exact same URL side by side, and to refresh each and consistently get one with an image and the other without. So I'm now more confused than ever about what's going on!

Start with your Chrome configuration, remove all extensions, plug-ins, add-ons, and so on, and see if one of them is blocking you. If that doesn’t do it, start up Chrome with a completely fresh profile.
