      I can see what you are saying @V.T. Eric Layton regarding my last post. However as I just copied and pasted the pics they showed up just fine here. I do normally post from a url with a .pg or .png or .gif.   My other problem regarding not seeing Josh's recent pictures is not related to the above. It is however related to something  at Imgur. I accessed Imgur from three different pc's two of which were running through a VPN which means that thye should show a different isp location, yet the Imgur log shows me accessing their site form the same isp location,       I just made a change in my VPN to a different country and at Imgur it showed up,       It looks like the problem was at Imgur or with my VPN.     I can upload pictures to Imgur and post them here so it looks like things may be back to normal.   😎

      The reason your images are not showing up correctly is because the board's software cannot parse the carp that you're posting. Below is the source code of your post above:   <p> <img alt="https://www.pcreview.co.uk/proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgur.com%2FZYEZFR4.jpg&amp;hash=0a18dd75d66940d8e5591ee57cdc11e3" data-ratio="34.83" src="https://www.pcreview.co.uk/proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgur.com%2FZYEZFR4.jpg&amp;hash=0a18dd75d66940d8e5591ee57cdc11e3" width="933"> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <img alt="proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgur.com%2" data-ratio="140.04" src="https://www.pcreview.co.uk/proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgur.com%2Fu1A5hoY.jpg&amp;hash=1d94413b9bee674c887aa90b5b5566aa" title=""> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <img alt="Bleach.JPG" data-ratio="77.72" height="321" src="https://www.pcreview.co.uk/attachments/bleach-jpg.11127/" title="Bleach.JPG" width="413"> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <img alt="proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgur.com%2" data-ratio="74.94" src="https://www.pcreview.co.uk/proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgur.com%2FHymHpDo.jpg&amp;hash=ba0e3725b36dcf066bb9c796162469f3" title=""> </p>   You'll notice that none of the URLs in the above post are .jpg or .png or .gif. These are the ONLY URLs that the board can understand when posting images.   To post an image, it needs to be on a server somewhere in the form of a jpeg, png or gif file. The URL will be something like this:   https://i.imgur.com/eow89jU.jpg or this https://i.imgur.com/BA1y8Gc.jpg. (my images served on Imgur).   Anyway, I'll edit your post above to make it work...

      Man! You are definitely having some image posting issues, it seems. I'm going to go into edit mode on your post above and see what's going on...
