Uploaded Images Need Replacing

Post by Paul Swinhoe » Tue Feb 04, 2020 11:44 pm

Images included in your posts became corrupted while they were on the servers of the old hosting company.

This is what you need to do to get them back:
  • Login to the forum
  • Find your posts
  • Click the pencil symbol to edit them
  • delete all attachments and images
  • save the post
  • Edit it once again
  • Find the images on you computer
  • Upload them again
  • Save the post

When you have done this all should be OK.

A few things to remember:
  • Image files need to be less than 256kb in order to upload properly
  • If you find the images in Windows File Explorer, you can drag them directly into the post - very easy - just hold the Ctrl key down select them with your mouse and drag them in where you wan them
Any problems with the website or forum contact me via the COL website
