Accessing images on ArchNet
Dear all,

I have not able to access images from the Archnet site since last month or so. They are also certain online publications, which I have not been able to download. I have tried various Internet connections through out Karachi and the result is the same.

I would really appreciate if any one of you is able to help out in this problem. I need access to information soon, for teaching purposes.

Thanks,
Mariam Karrar

Mariam, the problem is likely to do with your Internet connection or browser settings. Your connection may reside behind firewalls. There is nothing that can be done from this end. Are any other members from Pakistan experiencing the same problems?

I'm experiencing the same problem and it seems that the media strip at the first page causes that. Actually I have never managed to see the media strip at this page. However, I tried this new feature in my Group Workspace on Digital Cities and it works perfectly.

Mirjana, please see if your browser is blocking pop-up windows. If so, the media strip will not work. Set your browser to allow for pop-ups and try this feature from any of the thumbnail pages in the Digital Library. Let me know if it works.

I have checked. My browser does allow pop-up windows, and it opens media strip in an image collection, but it shows appropriate number of EMPTY frames. I tried the Hasan Fathy collections and couldn't see ANY image or thumbnail.

Mirjana-try it on a smaller collection. like Camera Studies in Iraq which has 73 images rather than 1290. As I cannot re-create the problem it is difficult to solve. It works fine from the places I have tested. After opening the media strip, give it a few seconds before scrolling to allow time for the images to load. It could be your connection speed. I hope it works. Let me know.

Shiraz, I have accessed ArchNet avoiding Lobby & News page. The collection you mentioned worked perfectly. I tried other collections, as well as the APA pinup board and all images and media strips were visible. After that, I opened the Lobby and News page and experienced the same problems as before. After accessing the Lobby and News page my system can not show any image, nor in collections, neither in media strips.
It may be useful if other members could check the same so that we could compare results. I have a modem connection from home that works on 40Kbps.
