Images not always loading

I found out about Ghost recently and I’ve since migrated a Wordpress site and I’ve set up a new one. Ghost is great, but there’s one thing I can’t figure out. Why isn’t it serving the images consistently? Some are just not loading and which ones seems to be random. E.g The front page sometimes loads and sometimes doesn’t. Do I need a bigger server?

It looks like you might be uploading .webp images, which Ghost doesn’t currently support. Reloading your images as .png or .jpg should solve the problem.

For more background on WEBP image support, refer to this GitHub issue:

I’m not uploading webp files to my knowledge. Which image are you referring to? I’ve only uploaded png and jpg files that I know of. Unless they’re webp with png extensions?!

I have the same issue. At first I thought it was just my browser (always running Safari Tech Preview), but I asked other people around the world to test it with other browsers/OSs, and they all see the same. The images not always load. A refresh will often fix it, but not all the time.

Did you ever find a solution?

Does your website have SSL (HTTPS) enabled? I had a similar issue where images wouldn’t load. I resolved my issue by changed the image sources to retrieve each responsive image using https instead of http.

Could a Ghost developer point me towards the source where I can overwrite the image ‘srcset’ attribute’s values?
