    Members hotlinked images being replaced

    The Teak Door Forum does upgrade the Software where practical and sometimes there are unintended consequences that accompany the upgrade.


    One issue that is apparent is that Members photos which are hotlinked are sometimes being replaced. This has nothing to do with the Moderation/Administration Team.


    It happens when Members hotlink to images which don't have a unique name and are named 1.jpg or 1.gif etc. The server will load the first posted image with that name.


    To overcome this happening maybe it's best to directly upload the image to the Forum or name your image with a unique filename.


    Unfortunately we can't customise the software.

    The moderation team.

    Sounds like a little kids excuse to me. Chocolate syrup all over the face hands and floor. Mom, "what the heck happened here?". Kid, " A ghost did it mommy!!"

    The folks at vBulletin have quite an extensive support/advisory forum that could be pursued to remedy the in-software auto-glitch - or not.

    As Moderator has mentioned already, mages embedded from your files or from the in-house albums [original filenames] usually work best.

    Nonetheless, thanks for the updated communique Admin.

    Posting a photo that's hosted on another website.
