    Default Post Editing Turned Off

    Photobucket is now charging ransom for my photos, so the hundreds I've posted in my DIY threads are no longer visible. I have moved many of the photos to another hosting site and will try to update those threads if the editing function can be turned back on for older threads.

    Sorry, but it cannot be turned on selectively for individual members or specific time periods. However, we wouldn't want you to change them to another photo hosting site. The same problem would no doubt happen again and again.

    You can attach photos directly to your post within our website. That way we can control the images displayed here.

    We discourage the use of 3rd party photohosts for this very reason. Photoposts have caused numerous problems for us in the past. For example, multiple times in the past we've seen them get taken over by hackers who put malware in the images. Then just viewing a post with those images can infect users with the malware. In another example we had a photohost that got purchased and they wanted to force everyone to stop linking to them so they replaced all the photos with pornography. Every photo that was posted in threads worldwide suddenly displayed the porn images. We found out when Google sent us a warning about our pornography in threads.

    Don't click on the photo icon. Click on the paperclip icon in the full editor (go advanced).

    That’s good to know. I always thought we had to use a 3rd party host.
    I'm not sayin' that, I'm just sayin'......
