I know your busy,l not complaining, but wanted to list a page with on pics.
https://elightbars.org/forums/threads/evolution-of-the-federal-vitalite.27361/

I'm curious, I run several web pages and if I move the images to a new location I have to go in and relink every pic to a page to show. In HTML a pic is listed as #picname, When I move an image to another folder it will show the link as http://www.page name/picname, i have to go to that page and relink the image from it's new location. Is that perhaps what is happening? I'd be willing to help if there is a way for me to do it.

It is more complex than that... it is all database driven. Only some attachments are broken, and the images are still present, just not linked properly.

I don't have an edit post option
This change came with the reinstatement of the Supporting Memberships.

Rob, see above your post about editing (if you didn't already). Paid members get the perk of editing posts. Free memberships no longer do

Tony,
I saw that after I posted... thanks for the heads up.

Not to sound negative or rock the boat... but that is silly.. Editing a post is a basic function... like replying or even posting itself. Is there an FAQ or to use IT terminology a release notes that will be posted somewhere to see what else has changed?

Thanks,
Rob

To correct your own post is what I would like to do to correct misspells and other faults at least within a curtain amount of time, let say 30 minutes.
That should make this forum more readable than what I suspect it will be from now on.

It seems as though the price disappears when a listing is marked as sold. Here is an example: https://elightbars.org/forums/threads/whelen-lc-liberty-i-o-board-sold.84865/

Leaving the selling price after an item has sold helps the entire community to value their items. This forum has managed to become a solid historical record of equipment values over time.

Please make it so the new listing system retains and continues to display price information after a listing has been marked as sold.

Does it look like any of the lost pictures will be back? Thanks.
I'm sorry, another cross-country move for work has spun life out of control again. The question of having the files is not the problem, it's how they were previously linked. I have to work with the author of a previous plugin we had (to help save disk space) to get things sorted out.

Thank you for all of the time and effort you and the rest of the site staff continue to dedicate to make this site great!
