The issue you’re experiencing isn’t Connections related, well, sort of, but not really yet. The theme or another plugin is loading jQuery 1.9 instead of the version bundled with WordPress. This is a very poor practice because this will cause a problem for many plugins, including Connections because the code depends on the version of jQuery that is bundled with WordPress. jQuery 1.9 removed a function that Connections uses to show the loaded images rather than the spinner. I do need to update that code because it is likely the next version WordPress will come with jQuery 1.9.
So what’s the solution, if you grant me a temp admin account I’ll make edit to Connections to completely remove the spinner.
