Suddenly this happens: the thumbnails of my home page (which is a list of blog posts) suddenly take forever to load. Literally forever (they never load). But even this is not totally accurate: sometimes they just load fine. It seems like 70% of the times they keep loading forever and 30% they load just fine. Which leaves me completely baffled.

Some additional info that might or might not be related:

1) I used regenerate thumbnails and nothing changed;

2) I'm using the free Cloudflare service;

3) the picture displays just fine once you click on a post (the full size img).

Any ideas what can I look at?

  • Could you link to the live site? Note that WordPress typically doesn't participate in serving static files to visitors, they are passed up and handled by web server. – Rarst Nov 21 '14 at 19:43
  • To me that sounds like a CDN/Cloudflare issue or your hoster does not allow that connection (or something between like state restrictions in Iran, China, Turkey etc. - depends on where your server lives). Anyway, we will need to have a bit more info. Please file an edit to your question. – kaiser Nov 22 '14 at 9:01
  • Please describe method used for testing 'literally forever'. – SkyShab Nov 23 '14 at 1:06

I'm thinking the images are hosted on Cloudflare's CDN? Have you tried using a different browser to see if the issue still persists?

Also, if you provide a link, other users could validate if they have the same issue.
