My iPad has stopped showing images in Safari. Why?

About four days ago, my iPad stopped showing images in web pages--there's either a grayed out box where they should be or they're just missing. All the text loads fine, it really just looks like image resources are deciding not to load. This happens in Safari, and in Safari view controller views like Tweetbot (so it's Webkit-wide?) Force quit Safari, restarted, still broken. Upgraded it from 9.2 to 9.3.1 this morning, and same thing. Did I toggle some setting inadvertently? Or is this a bug, and if so, how do I fix it?

Try going to history and clearing your cookies and your cache. I don't know what's happening with your ipad, but nearly every time my phone or whatever starts having trouble loading stuff in a browser, clearing the cookies has worked to fix it.

Do you have any Content Blockers installed?

Go into Settings -> Safari -> Content Blockers and if any are on... turn them off.

It was totally the content blocker I have installed. Thanks SansPoint!
