Post Fixing postimg.org broken pic links
Hey all, it seems the • ADD IMAGE TO POST • / postimg.org people for some reason or other (like not renewing in time) broke old photo links (bastids!) by changing their domain name from postimg.org to postimg.cc

So if you want to fix the image links in your posts just replace that string -- postimg.org -- with postimg.cc

Alternately you can do what I do and post images inline using a flickr.com account (or smugmug.com which recently did a merger with flickr) and have more assurance your stuff will remain linked and portable, as well as being able to organize stuff you care about into albums.

I tried editing postimg.org -> postimg.cc, but I get a "403 Forbidden" error, which seems to come from the forum's software (some permission issue?)

I was able to get a couple pages edited on my "66" build log and then got the 403 error thang. I'll try again tomorrow. Hopin' I can do a few per day :roll:

Update: did a few more pages this morning. Discovered that if the post has three or less photos, I can edit it, no problem. If there is four or more photos in the post, I get that 403 error when I try to edit. I will continue to edit the posts with 3 or less photos when I can.

Weird, huh?

Several times now whoever administers that site has broken things, so I wouldn't be surprised...

FYI: My "1515/66" & "12/6's" threads have been all edited, photo wise, as much as possible for now.
