    Not getting pictures - New to forums

    Hi,

    Just bought my first 3D printer - a Prusa i3 from the second owner who upgraded to something larger. I've done two 3D objects before by sending files to someone else's printer, but now I have my own. Should be fun.

    I have a problem w/X-Axis belt tension, so I found this thread:

    Maintenance, Mods and Tips'n'Tricks - Prusa i3

    But in looking at the thread, pictures don't show. Prior to registering and logging in, I saw that the post did have picture references.

    Is there some setting I'm missing to see in-line pictures, or do they just happen to be gone on this thread?

    Thanks.

    It's not you. 3DPrintBoard has been broken for over a month now.

    Eddie, Brian, Sarah, and any other admins, you really, really should be courteous to your users and explain whether this is permanent or whether there's hope of the problem being resolved some day.

    Thanks. I was going to post a picture of my printer in hopes of someone identifying the kit manufacturer and then getting some firmware and settings info. I guess I'll hold off for now.

    I think the issue is with images and attachements that were uploaded prior to about mid April when 3DPrintBoard ran into some server issues. If you can post an image today, it should display OK. You can also always link to an image that you have somewhere else like imgur or dropbox.

    FOLLOWUP COMMENT: My statement about new images and attachments displaying OK was with respect to the attachment situation as it was in early 2015. That seems to no longer apply in 2016.

    Hi Guys,

    I have raised this with Eddie some time ago, I also cannot see any images on the site either nor can I see images I am uploading. I'm not sure what's causing it as I don't have access to that part of the forum, but I'll see if we can get it fixed, it is becoming a bit frustrating when you read a thread and someone is describing a picture.. but you can't see the picture

    I'll try and keep you posted.

    What I find even more frustrating is all the threads from new users talking about how they tried and tried to upload images/attachments and the forum wouldn't accept them. What are these new users supposed to be told that encourages them to keep using the forum?

    As I said over a year ago on a prior round of server/attachment issues, users should at least be told whether the situation is permanent or not.

    EDITS FOLLOW:
    If the inability to upload new images and attachments is permanent, the FAQ page needs to be updated to correct misleading information on how to upload stuff.

    I believe it's fixed. Let me know any adjustments that you would like see made.

    We're closer, Eddie. Looks like being able to post attachments might be working. Should it be possible to insert a full-size (non-thumbnail) image? Maybe I just forgot how to do it, but that didn't seem to work.

    All prior attachments and images still appear to be gone. The ones you see throughout the forum recently are all linked from elsewhere.

    I was able to insert an image from photobucket just a few mins ago.
    That being said I did not get a chance to edit it down to a more manageable size yet I will do that now.
