    As of this morning, all Instagram posts on the forum just show up as long white boxes. This has not been a problem before. Anyone have a fix? I’m on an iPhone using Safari.

    I can see the imbedded IG posts when I use Chrome, but I would prefer to continue using Safari.

    Girl this has been forever for me. Sometimes I see them (very rare), but most of the time it’s just an endless, blank scroll. I also have an iPhone and am using Safari.

    It’s super annoying and is making my experience unpleasant. Have you ever contacted @dimopoulos about it? I don’t think the problem is on my end, because it’s always worked fine.

    I have already closed and restarted IG, updated the app, then deleted and reinstalled. Nothing has changed for me. :(

    Aww man. I was hoping it would work for you too. That's so frustrating. Sorry it didn't work.

    Thanks for trying. I’m happy yours is back up. The mods did contact me to let me know that admin is working on figuring out the problem. So hopefully it will be fixed soon.

    @Theresamonet I hadn't contacted any admin because I feel like there was another thread about this some time ago. I always update my IG, so I think it's a server issue. Hopefully it gets fixed soon, because it really takes the fun out of being on here when I can't see people's posts. :sad:

    The same is happening for me, which is really annoying and inconvenient.

    I can’t see this image (I could see the kitten when using my laptop), but it’s a wide blank space on my iPhone using Safari. I can see it on my phone using Chrome. All my software/apps are up-to-date.

    @dimopoulos I’m not having a problem with Instagram but I can’t see any media/images from Amazon. Is that being worked on too?

    Thanks ladies for the feedback. At this point it sounds like an issue based on the platform you are using i.e. Safari vs Chrome. The plugin for our site was updated as of 3/17/2018. If we are able to find something else to assist all we will definitely implement. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.

    Does this apply to Amazon as well? Do I need to start a separate thread for that to be looked into?
