There have been several occasions recently when remotely hosted images linked with the

Code: Select all

tags are failing to be displayed. Photobucket now prevents images being displayed on any forum (unless you pay) and Postimage's servers have become somewhat flaky. This is obviously beyond my control.

To prevent this happening in the future you will be better off using the attachment feature that I have enabled on the board. That way images are stored on our server and should always be displayed.

I have changed the way that images from insecure (http) sites are handled.

Any image hosted on the HiFi Kabin via the Attachments link under the posting box
attachments.png
and all images hosted on a secure (https) site are displayed in full. Should you link an image from an insecure (http) site the image will not be displayed but replaced by a link.
