Pinterest won't load pics

Go to solution

Hi everyone!

 

None of the image shows up whenever i tried to load Pinterest. No matter using which browser or devices as long as it linked to wifi.

 

I've tried the methods from previous threads including changing DNS on devices and my parent control is off. None of these helps...

 

Any ideas? 😄

Merry Christmas and welcome to the forum.

Pinterest seems to work fine here.  Piles of images display on the page.

You might try typing    ipconfig /flushdns     from the Command prompt.

Type  cmd  in the Run box.

 

If all else fails try 1 factory reset of the Hub.

Hi Liam!
Merry Christmas! And thank you for your reply!

Sorry I should've clear that the I've been trying to get to Pinterest through different devices including iPhone7, iPad Pro 2017, MacBook Pro 2017 and MacBook Pro 2012.
All of them are able to get the pics from Pinterest through internet sharing from iphone, but not trough wifi nor ethernet.
So possibly the problem it's not the DNS cache?

Also, I've just tried the factory reset of the BT smart Hub.
Still couldn't get the pics showing up on Pinterest by using app through iPhone and iPad.
As for the laptops, the webpage won't even show up no matter which browser i use...

Any other ideas? 🙂

Don't have any Apple kit, so seeing you tried alternate DNS servers not sure what to try next.  A quick look around turned up this link, might give you some idea of what to look at.

Hey Liam!
All the other website showing perfectly. Just not Pinterest...
And also since the pictures won't show in app as well so this still won't solve it...
Thank you again~

Any other ideas guys?~~

Thank you both @Keith_Beddoe and @Liam_!

I've checked these earlier posts before and tried changing DNS on my MacBookPro2017. That didn't work at the time.
Tried flushing DNS caches earlier and that didn't work as well.
Also I have trouble undestanding how flushing the DNS only on one laptop can have effects to all the devices including phones and tablets.

But today I found a different method/code to flush DNS caches.

I opened terminal and copy paste: "sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder;sudo killall mDNSResponderHelper;sudo dscacheutil -flushcache"
And after keying my password to confirmed. IT WORKS!!!

Also have a full effect on all my devices! My phone, tablet and also the other MacBook!

So yes problem solved!
But still confused... why flushing DNS cache on one laptop could change all these???

Really odd that one device should have that effect. I am not sure how long Apple stuff caches DNS lookups, but somehow it was retaining out of date info.

 

I only use OpenDNS, not the BT DNS servers.

Latest update...

Sadly, all the other devices back to not loading pics from Pinterest again. I didn't change anything, it just happened...

Tried reset network settings on iPhone7 and it worked for a short while. Now back to not showing pics again.
As for the iPad Pro, even reseting network won't help.
And I've tried changing both DNS settings to google DNS and open DNS.

Any other ideas?

How are you changing the DNS settings, as the home hub does not allow that?
