    True, it doesn't work with Firefox 2.0.0.1 but works on IE7. Annoying.

    Vindicated.


    Just to note, we like and use FireFox when ever we can and we prefer FireFox over IE, but because of some Ghosts in the Machine, sometimes we're forced to use Internet Explorer to get the job done.

    Vindicated again... (not a good thing)


    PlastX before & after shots




    The pictures are no longer on the Photobucket website, or their location has changed and thus the red x's now show up.

    Kind of takes away the power of Before & After when the pictures are no longer viewable. Thus the premise of this post, that we i.e. Meguiar's are in this for the long run, not a day or two, so we want photos to show up years down the road, not red x's.

    I use www.picturetrail.com

    I have been a member with them for years and years. I paid $20 a year and I get unlimited storage and can link my pics anywhere. I can even use the thumbnails to provide Avatars.

    Forget Photbucket and those other places. I have never had an issue with picturetrail.

    Can you limit post photos only to those in Meguiars gallery?

    I too hate the Red X's, happens in many forums but you search find what you want and the answer but the photos are gone and you miss half the post.

    On another Forum I visit I found this recent post:


    There are 45 of those little icons and not a single photo!

    Re: Why PhotoBucket is a waste of time...

    I don't like imageshack. Outside the US, or whatever their logic is, many of the images show up just as frogs that say something about the registry that the person who posted has to do.

    Some forums are filled with those, others not so much.

    So I upload to my server. Just have to remember not to delete anything, and on some software, I have to remember that if I add a picture on the page that isn't at the end, the software will rename when publishing, so that picture 5 that I might have posted somewhere now becomes 6.
    (I should add that my Corvair site has more than 900 pictures I reference to, and the other cars will probably also hit that before I finish)

    So I've taken to uploading them with their real names and then writing the site with references to the warehoused images.

    So pics like this will always be referenced by their real name: "Corvair_front_10-2012"
