        Where is the “like” button??! I love this response. Keep trying Mary! We’re all praying… Jan in MA

    Sorry Mary, no ads, no images. You must be so frustrated.

    I tapped on the logo and one ad did pop up when I opened your blog that way.

  2. Jo in Wyoming

    I got the space for the picture, but no picture! So sorry Mary, I wish we had better news for you.
    I did get a few ads to click on.

  3. Holly in Two Harbors

    No image, but two ads, which I closed. I’m so sorry you are experiencing this frustration!

  4. JudyE

    Got several ads which I closed and the only other things were two comments and the picture of Connie and you.
    Take a break Mary as you are going to wear yourself out trying to correct this issue. Sometimes the break opens up new ideas.
    Have a great weekend everyone’

    Mary, I got some ads. I opened them as usual, and then clicked on the back-arrow key. Is that the same as “closing the ad”? I’m asking to be sure this is correct so I don’t get blocked from receiving updates.

  6. Sue in Oregon

    Same as most. Got ads, and one picture space with no photo. So very sorry. Seems like you are making headway though. Other than no photo loading, the blog now looks the same as always.

  7. Jean

    Mary. Stop. You are wearing yourself out. I closed 4 ads but nothing came through. I am just so sorry this is happening. I am going to pray.

    Mary, it’s time to call in the big guns and take that trip to Des Moines. Don’t forget to make an appointment. Then sit back and open a case of beer. enough is enough.
    P.S. there are a bunch of ads below your picture so everyone, keep scrolling.

    Here’s my two cents. Maybe you should try posting from another device, such as a library or a friend’s computer. If the pictures do post, then the problem is most likely with your ipad. But, full disclosure, I don’t have any apple devices except for an ipod. I hope you’re able to get this issue resolved without too much more aggravation. I admire your persistence.

  10. Jane

    Mary. Stop. Relax. Breathe. Leave this to the professionals. Make an appointment at the Apple store and let them get all the bugs off your iPad. That’s most likely the problem.

  11. Caryn Goulden

    I got 7 ads to close, but no picture. Maybe take the weekend off from this and relax on your lovely farm. ❤️

  12. Nancy A Poole

    Closed 6 ads but now pictures. I miss you. I’m patient. Sewing pillowcase dresses for Operation Christmas Child today. Was tired of my 2 in squares, needed something bigger to hold.

  13. Fiona at Ice Bear Quilts

    Header and Connie/Mary photo and further lay-out as normal, one empty picture frame at the top of the blogs. 8 adds to close, though!

  14. Katherine Gourley

    The banner is back, plenty of adds to close, but so sad just a spot where a picture should appear

  15. Julie E

    A concern I see is that the bar across the top of my screen says “Not Secure -country-Threads-chicken-scratch.com
    It never came through like that before.

    1. Janice Hebert

      Julie E, my computer has always displayed that “! Not secure line”. I wonder if yours has also but you never noticed it before? Jan from MA

  16. Martha Engstler Gettysburg

    Hi Mary, I closed 20 ads. If I open the blog again and hit comment it gives me about 7 or 8 more ads to close. The more I do that the more ads I get. If I can’t get your pictures the least I can do is open ads.

    1. CountryThreads Post author

      Martha Engstler – I am so grateful for your support – this just wouldn’t be worth my headaches otherwise!

  17. Diane Bauer

    I had ads to close but no photos (a blank square outline where I think one was supposed to be).

  18. Jan from TN

    No picture. Sorry………………..But I did close 5 ads!!!
    Take a break from this over the weekend. Maybe your computer is old? has a virus? I don’t know. I’m sure you & your helpers have thought of everything! I feel awful that you’re spending so much time on this. I appreciate that your are as I’d like to see your blog continue but you’re going over & above! PLEASE—-take a break…………………..

      Jan from TN – this is so aggravating I can’t quit now! And my IPad Pro was purchased last November, it’s still under warranty.

  19. Janice Hebert

    I agree with everyone Mary. You should take the weekend and enjoy your family and farm. This can wait! When you do come back I found a site: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-image-upload-issue-in-wordpress/ that I thought was interesting. I haven’t seen anyone mention contacting WordPress about this. Maybe their facebook community has run into this? Just thinking out loud. I hope these suggestions don’t just make things worse for you! I know it must be upsetting. In the meantime, has Connie pulled the next number in the dirty dozen? I can’t believe it’s August! Jan in MA

    1. CountryThreads Post author

      Janice Hebert – yes, she posted in the comments yesterday – it’s #3

    2. CountryThreads Post author

      Janice Hebert – I have read this article but don’t understand it. It’s by far the most convincing of all explanations however and I will show it at my appointment with Apple tomorrow. Thank you! If I ever find out my host server has caused all this angst, I think I’ll kill him!

      1. Janice Hebert

        Ah, I missed that from Connie. Thank you – #3 it is! And I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes if your host server is the culprit! So glad to hear you will be going to Apple. I’m sure they will be able to help but what an inconvenience for you! I’m sure all of us that see them are clicking as many ads as we can. Hope that at least helps a little. Jan in MA

  20. Diane, Squeak’s Mom

    No picture, closed 6 ads, but there were 3 doubles. Not sure if that means anything. Please take a break and rest, Mary. We are a patient group.

  21. Felicia Hamlin

    Hi, Mary. I got the picture of Hazel, but somehow there was no place where to post. If there was a photo in the last test, I didn’t get it. I am sorry you are going through so much trouble. I do miss your news.

    Technology can be a bear. Wishing that you will find a solution soon.

  22. Bonnie McKee

    No pictures, but I closed 3 ads! 🙂
    I’m also praying!
    Hang in there!

    several ads to close….Sending Sunny thoughts & Hugs your way….Hang in there!! Sandy in Indiana

    Hi Mary, closed 4 ads. Good luck at the Apple store. Don’t jump over the counter if they fix the problem in 5 min. My son worked there 10+ years ago, it’s pretty amazing. My son-in-law manages the tech dept. at a college and fixes things too fast for me to follow. My next project for either one is to help me dump a bunch of downloads that have duplicated somehow and help organize my photos. I take notes but half the time still can’t figure out the weird stuff. I’m lucky to have tech support; that’s the term I use when I call for help. These devices are wonderful when they work!!! Keep you in my prayers that you will be able to have an Ah!!! moment when all is fixed. I also miss the quilt posts and wonderful photos. Take Care.
