Web Albums, The Quick Fix

As per yesterdays stadium sequence (see below) you may have noticed that our blog regularly features Picasa Web Albums. Having been told by several people that the albums do not load, I made a concerted effort to get to the bottom of this. After all, there’s little point to having them if many of those it’s intended for, are unable to view it.

Firefox is my browser of choice and having never personally encountered this, I soon realized that those who do, are all Internet Explorer users. Downloading and installing Firefox is definitely one way of getting around it. To me, the fact that so many still use Internet Explorer serves as evidence that people are indeed creatures of habit, who don’t like change. Firefox is a free download and is widely regarded as a far more superior browser.

However …..

If you insist on Internet Explorer and are experiencing this problem, the solution really is quite simple; you need to download a later version of Adobe Flash Player. It is also free download and is very easy to install. Once the process is complete, the web albums will load as intended.

Hope that was of assistance to some!
