Some of the soldiers NEVER made it home ......

Unread post by Buzzard » Sun Dec 13, 2015 9:12 pm

:idea: No, it's NOT about people losing lives ..... it's about PICTURES uploaded to Yamaha Forums, mostly as attached files. :idea:

The recent change of server and possibly the latest update, has left some topics and posts with pictures either missing, and/or distorted. :cry:

I have brought this to Sauls attention, and he has managed to salvage some, but there's still a lot of "broken" pictures.

The examples below are just samples from the guitar topics, but the key/synth section is probably affected too.

viewtopic.php?f=24&t=8387
viewtopic.php?f=24&t=5019
viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1351

:idea: It looks like photobucket pictures and youtube clips aren't affected since they're external URL's/links :idea:

:?: Can more pictures be salvaged, or must the members "bite the bullit" and reload their snaps :?:

Regards
Peter

:idea: edits are adding new faulty links or removing links to posts with pictures intact intact. :idea:

Don't anyone re-upload just yet. I am trying a few things to see if I can solve the issues so hang in there!

Something odd going on here. Many of those photos were added 'after' the site migration so really they should appear fine.

I have backups from the old server up to October 28th which is when we moved the site.

These files only go back as far as 2010. Before that we didn't have an upload facility so any images missing pre 2010 are not to do with the site migration.

There may be a few images still missing but it's just a case of editing your post, delete the attachment that is there already and then add it again. That should sort it.

All in all it's been pretty smooth sailing moving servers so a glitch here and there is not too bad.

If anyone is having issues editing/deleting etc just let me or Buzzard (Peter) know and we'll get it sorted it. :)
