Postimage Links

Post by bearbutt »

It appears that Postimage changed their hosting service and URL, so that all previous image links are broken. After the Photbucket fiasco, Postimage seemed to offer the most stable image hosting platform, but that was mere wistfulness.

So--the only way to fix this is to relink the images to their new URL--a real hassle, as it means going back into all previous posts and edit the link.

Or, for the SGM bulletin board, do as Joe Fox suggested a while back and use his facilities to upload images here, so that problem won't exist... at least here... :|

Ed, thanks, yes--it took me a while to find it (as it's hidden under the "Rules")--but Joe's direct upload instructions seem like a good way to go for posting images. I'll try it out.

Snowing most of the day here in Chicago--it should reach you tomorrow.
