    Question image loading in DD ticker script

    Hi and thanks for so much help over the years.

    I'm using a DD script, ajax_ticker that worked like a charm at first, but now the image isn't loading. The alt is there and you can see the image placeholder trying to load but it fails. I'm wondering if somehow, both in IE and Firefox, the image is too slow for the ticker? It is RGB and I've tried both png and jpg file types. What the ticker is doing is showing a text review of the website with a small image of star ratings. THis is running on a Linux server. Any insights appreciated.

    Maybe the image sizes are too big to load before skipping to the next entry? Have you optimised them?

    To check it out properly though, can you post a link to your page and also a link to the source/demo script on DD so we can easily see which ticker script you're using.

    Please post about Dynamic Drive Scripts in the Dynamic Drive Scripts Help section here where I've moved this thread, and:

    Warning: Please include a link to the DD script(s) in question in your post. See this post for more information.

    And we will need as Beverleyh requested, a link to your page.

    And if this is an RSS feed script (sounds like it from your description, but maybe not), if it is, we would need the link(s) to your RSS feed(s) that you're using with it.
