General Support / Both Forums Are Down ?

General Support / Attachments Question
« on: October 10, 2018, 09:50:08 pm »

I just want to make sure I understand this correctly..

The "File Attachment Options" only take affect if I go through the "maintain" step, correct ?

Looking at the settings, there is no reason why images and avatars should ever be removed unless I do the "maintain" step, correct ?

The reason I ask, is that when I view "browse files" it shows 658 pages of attachments, but there are several hundred of those pages that are blank.

The forum for what ever reason has lost a lot of images over time. I am not completely sure why, and just want to make sure that ther is not some kind of automated setting that is deleting attachments after a specific set period of time and for some reason the forum is loosing attachments.

General Support / Glitch in Preview ...
« on: September 21, 2018, 10:35:14 pm »
This has been going on for a long time and is driving me nuts .  It was not like this on either forum when I first created them.

Having the same problem on both my forums..

This shows everything that is typed prior to preview.

This is all that shows up in the top window when in preview mode. Just a single line..

I have to scroll using the up and down arrows just to be able and view one line of text at a time.

How can I or you guys fix this so that when in preview mode the entire post shows up ?    :-\

SMF For Free Codes and Support / Cod For Moving Recent Posts To Sidebar
« on: September 21, 2018, 04:46:34 pm »
Is there a code that can add to the current side bar code that will let me show the "recent posts" within that side bar instead of the bottom of the forum ?

Or maybe there is already some kind of setting that I can not find ?

General Support / Help With Sidebar Code
« on: September 21, 2018, 01:57:35 pm »
Will have to go to the forum to actually see what I am asking about..

If you look at the sidebar.. Notice how towards the top it reads, Bob shared this beautiful Monarch Jasper Cab.

Bob Shared this beautiful cab is in regualr black text, and Monarch Japser Cab is blue hyperlink.

When I try to do the same just below where it reads, Peaches shared this wonderful titorial and finished Ocean Japser Inlay Cuff.

I can not get "Pearches Shared this wonderful tutorial and finished" in black regular text separate from Ocean Jasper Inlay Cuff which is hyperlinked in blue.  Everything wants to be blue..

Here is what that part of the sidebar code looks like..

What am I doing wrong with the code  ???

Code: [Select]

<center><b><font size="2" color=#B22222>Forum cabochon in the Spotlight</font></b></center><p>

<center><b>Bob shared this beautiful <a href=,18571.0.html><font color="#0000FF"><b>Monarch Jasper Cab</center><p>

<center><img src=""></a></center><p>

<center><b><font size="2" color=#B22222>Forum Jewelry Design in the Spotlight</font></b></center><p>

<center><b>Peaches shared this wonderful tutorial and finished <a href=,17978.0.html><font color="#0000FF"></b>Ocean Jasper Inlay Cuff</center><p>

<center><img src=""></a></center><p>

This has been going on for about a year now..  These weird unwanted polls keep popping up on a lot of topics..

What causes these ?  They are an eye sore and would like to prevent them..

Is the forum being hacked ?

General Support / Non viewable videos
« on: September 07, 2017, 05:27:22 am »

Some members, including myself are not able to see videos that are shared .. It just shows a black box.

Not that it is a huge big deal , as we can right click and paste from properties the url into a browser, but thought I would let ya know... Maybe there is a simple fix ?

General Discussion / F&%#%ing Photobucket..
« on: July 14, 2017, 03:35:40 pm »
I am just beside myself about fu%#%ing Photobucket !

Users have been finding out about it as their embedded images on other sites have turned into placeholders telling them to update their accounts, and as Photobucket has rolled out email notifications telling them that if they want to keep embedding images, they have to pay $399/year.

Can anyone recommend a good third party photo hosting site that has no problems with embedding images ?

Fu%#%ing Photobucket has just totally screwed up five plus years worth of compiled work and research for myself and forum members..  I am about as pissed off as a guy can be !
