Picture Trail causes big problem

Postby Niner Alpha » Sat Jan 31, 2004 11:28 pm

Picture Trail had a problem which will make a lot of the pictures on the site not load until I can correct them. Big problem but it will be corrected. This was their email.<br>
Dear Member,<br>
If you are not currently posting images to any<br>
auction or other website, you can disregard this<br>
notice. <br>
We have experienced serious technical problems<br>
on part of one of our servers overnight. We had<br>
to take quick action and move the affected<br>
accounts because we believe the problem will get<br>
worse and cannot be fixed without taking the server<br>
offline for several days. <br>
You will not see any difference in the operation <br>
of your account except for one important thing,<br>
and that is the fact that the image urls used<br>
for posting to auctions and other sites will<br>
have changed. Whereas the image urls used<br>
to contain "pic6" in the url string, they will now<br>
contain "pic11" instead. Other parts of the<br>
url strings have changed as well. <br>
If you're currently posting images to auctions<br>
or other sites, those images will no longer<br>
show. You will have to get the new image urls<br>
and update those previous urls. To get the new<br>
image urls, log into the members area and click<br>
on More Options in left bar and then click on<br>
the Image URLs link.<br>
We apologize for the sudden change in the image<br>
urls with no prior notice. It's very rare that<br>
we experience technical difficulties such that<br>
we have to take such drastic action as to move<br>
accounts from one server to another. <br>

I used Photobucket to post pictures, just followed the directions that Niner Alpha has posted under the "Site Announcements". He takes you step by step and it turns out to be a lot easier than I thought. And all this time I thought that him and Chuck were so very clever, turns out that even I could do it. (No cleverness from me!)<br>
Seems the old saying, "If all else fails, read the instructions." is actually true sometimes. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :D --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://pub39.ezboard.com/b6thbattalionofthe31stinfantry.showUserPublicProfile?gid=ninerdeltaindia@6thbattalionofthe31stinfantry>Niner Delta India</A> at: 1/31/04 9:30 pm<br></i>
