I actually went back to some of my recent posts and actually re uploaded all the photos so that they would show again, I'm not saying that is a solution as there are 1000s of photos on here however I didn't like it that my pics were not showing so decided to do something about it. I really feel sorry for Graham as he puts so much hard work into this forum and he is kind of stuck at the moment trying to sort things out.

we are still trying to sort it out, Michael is having a look for us. If we get it sorted we are moving the forum to a more up to date one that people hopefully will know how to fix.
I'm still smiling though :)
The other thing is that once we do get the pictures loaded then the pictures posted since the problem might not show up so you may have to load them again Rob :( Best thing at the moment I think is to wait a while and lets see if I can find someone who knows the system.

But that was nice of you to do, so thanks.

Before on forums I've used things like photobucket to upload photos and then just linked them in here (like my welcome thread, the photos are hosted on my website). This will lighten the resources you will need for your site (webspace and bandwidth).


Good idea Rob, I'll do the same to mine. Saying that, the little black box might be an improvement!!!!

We are having some work done on the forum this weekend, fingers crossed we get the pictures back.

I'm hoping it gets sorted.

Goodness the technical jargon I get about why the pictures are not showing on the forum, I have no clue and keep passing the info on.
Still have no clue if or even when we will get the pictures back up if at all.

Do you know if the problem is due to the server or is it down to the forums? Did the actual photos get transferred across?

I'd offer to look for you, but I only really know the basics and I dare say these would have been covered already.

This is the last email I have but there are many more that I have no clue about,

My guess is, that the image / attachment files have been damaged by transferring them the wrong way via an FTP program (ASCII instead of binary).

If there has indeed been such an upload (e.g. with FileZilla) then the only way to resolve the issue is to upload the files again in the correct way.

I can't say I've heard that one before (but not saying it isn't true).

Have you got all the old files on backup?

My web guy says we have back ups, he is uploading them onto a platform so others can view, I have a guy from Germany looking at the moment.
He did the picture re-sizing I think it was sept/oct last year on the forum so hopefully he will know his way around, if not I will come back to you if OK?

Yeah sure, I'm not a expert by a long means but suppose it can't do any harm to look. I'm on holiday at the minute, but home from tomorrow so feel free to give me a yell.
