    Default Canít see pictures in old posts

    I have been checking posts in some older threads and many seem to refer to attached pictures that I can’t see.

    Just wondering if this is because of my browser or if it is intentional.

    If it is intentional, have those attachments been archived and is there a way to access them?

    Most likely those pictures were hosted on an external site where the original links either no longer exist or the site became defunct.

    Indeed, this is why it is important to download the pics to the site.
    When pics are lost, the thread often becomes useless.
    I remember when photobucket began charging money, lots skipped and lots was lost.

    Phoobucket had all my photos and some I downloaded and they remain here. The others are being held for ransom at a price I can't pay. I didn't know till the day they cut off the photos they had hosted ( They put the photo onto the thread remarks at some cost to them) Didn't know that back when..
    Download to this site!!!
