I think It’s JetPack’s Image Accelerator

Update: Automattic’s support team have resolved my issue. Thanks to them for patience and diligence.

The support staff at Automattic didn't believe me when I told them that the September 8th update of JetPack broke something on my website. This morning I noticed that most of the images in my blog post were not displaying. I followed the troubleshooting tips recommended by Automattic. When I disable JetPack, as I have done now, all my images load. When I enable JetPack but leave all other plugins disabled, none of my images load.

I will leave this post on my website so that the staff at Authomattic can see that clearly images load and display from my server when JetPack is disabled. I think there is an issue with communication between the JetPack Image Accelerator software on my host and the WordPress.com servers. It seems live support is not an option even if I am paying for the service.

Two JetPack updates in the same week? Why? What went wrong? Did you rush to fix it and broke something else?

Tech support suggested that I may have deleted items from my media library. All images remain as they were when I uploaded them to the server.

I've left JetPack and all other plug-ins enabled but disabled the JetPack Image Accelerator.
