    PS Might also have something to do with the forums being moved to new server last night from around 5pm onwards and may have problems again this some time afternoon for a little while as the attachments will be transferred to the new server then.

    i know im only new here but how come no one post there pics using an external image host without having the links to click ie this way, you can resize the picture at the start then simply upload it then copy the "forum code" link to make it come up like this

    We (the owner, admins and mod mods) prefer that you use the Forum picture attachment function because it keeps the pictures on our server and doesn't destroy a thread if you revoke or lose your picture hosting site.

    The other reason is that in most cases they load faster too.

    Totally understand now, thinking back so many forums ive been on you have gone to look at old pics and theres nothing there because the host has removed them, thankyou very much for clearing that up.

    I'm experiencing problems trying to attach a photo to the forum, I've tried with Ubuntu using firefox, windows with firefox and the windows native browser but can't get a photo to attach, is anyone else having problems?

    Does Flash Player need updating on your computer? I had to do that a couple of days ago.

    Yeah it did Dean, I updated the flash player in windows and it's working again but Ubuntu is another story, it's been giving me all kinds of grief for the last couple of months, it just won't run properly anymore, it's a shame because I really liked using their operating system but now it's almost unusable for me.

    When I go to attach a pic to a PM it comes up as requesting a URL, how does one go about doing so???
