Ok so we all know that Photobucket got greedy and since then every single post and topic with Pbucket pics attached is now useless. I switched to Flickr and have only created a few pics, some new to show things, and a few older pics reuploaded when older forum posts were requested updated.

Now I can't get flickr pics to upload but only on this forum, I've tried a couple of times the last few days, only on this forum do they not upload. Any ideas? Some setting changed?

Not sure why that would be.....I'm just using the supplied BB Code link from Flickr...seems to work OK, I haven't shrunk any of my pics.

You can post pictures directly to the site in a browser window, you do not need to hotlink at all.

FYI, our software is very old, we need to do an upgrade at some point for sure.

I've been playing around with ways to do that but since it is so old there is no direct pathway. I think eventually we will have to take the site offline for a while to get it up to modern standards to be able to do things like post from Tapatalk, etc.

Will keep the forum up to date.

I have added a post to yours with the correct BBcode this forum understands. That said even if I modify your post to have the correct code for some reason it doesn't display correctly.
