Re: Off Topic: Why can\'t I see Posted Pix??
Just did some playing around. I downloaded Darryl's picture and FTP it to my server and it linked fine and displayed fine for me here on your mesaage board. I still get the red X in your post and the others right now down below my first post.
So then I took an image of my own and posted it on webshots after opening a new account for myself. I use "public" acces for my album. You had the option of selecting private and only allowing invited guess to view or public for everyone to view. I thought maybe this was it, but my image would not display from webshots.com on here even using the "public" selection for my image.
So I would say the bottom line here is: It's not something on your site. It has to be something on these free image hosting boards. I've never had a problem doing it from my server, but can't get the same exact images to display from webshots.
Something for anyone posting to keep in mind when posting images is after you hit the buttom to have your post added. If you go back into it your post your image may display properly right then because the image could be in your browsers "cache" if you had it opened locally before copying it up to a hosting site. Your browsers "cache" keeps local files of visted web pages on hand to help with download speed. The problem is sometimes when you can't get to a particular web page or something it will display the files out of your cache. So you think your looking at a web site when your only viewing files on your local hardrive. It does depend on how your browser is configuraed though.
So after you hit post and it comes up and displays, hit reload on your browser. If it redisplays again then there won't(read.. should!!) be any problems with others viewing it also. If it doesn't then it won't for any body else either. Just something to keep in mind.
