Hi,

All the photos on the topics, posted on photobuket are now gone:



Other foruns have the direct attachment on the posts or a members gallery from where then we can post directly on the topic. How can we insert the images again on the most recent topics? I've looked around on the forum but didn't found the answer.

It appears that in order to put your photos on any third-party, i.e. this forum than you're going to have to start paying a monthly fee.

Unfortunately I just don't have the funds to start paying a monthly fee to photo bucket. So if you want to put photos onto the forum than we are going to have to find another way to do it.

It appears that everybody wants money nowadays, I suppose that is the nature of the Internet, the more people the more money there is to be made. It cost me nearly £1000 a year to run this website. My Google advertising just about covers the running costs with a little bit left over.

So by your answer I conclude there´s no way to put the photos directly on OFL?

One of the foruns I use has the possibility to attach directly the photos on the topics. Other alowws to create a photo album on the forum gallery and after that the pictures are available to insert on the topics....

I know running a website has some costs, but the forum platform should allow to attach files on topics or have a photogallery. Its harder for me to insert pictures on several foruns instead of using the photobucket and then use the same links for all foruns, but I still want to update my topics and I'll do so on all foruns, but I have to be able to put the pictures directly. Paying photobucket is impossible for me.

I been thinking and it is important for people to be able to upload images. Therefore, I am now going to allow members to add attachments. However, you are limited to a maximum size of 120 kB. I haven't got time right at the moment, but a little bit later on I will include a program in a sticky which enables people to resize photos if they are too big. Photos that are uploaded have got to be stored on our server. If I simply let people upload any photo of any size then we end up with a Tom of photos that take up a lot of space.

Anyhow, why not test it out to make sure it's working for you.

It might be a case that I need to reinstall the Tapatalk plug-in to get it to work again. It seems that the problem is related to the upgrade of the forum software. Because like I said in a previous message, I haven't done anything with the plug-ins are part from disabling and then enabling, no changes to the settings at all.

If there's anyone else who uses Tapatalk and maybe you could confirm whether it is working for you or not.

I've been on the tapatalk website and log into my account and is a load of information talking about switching to HTTPS. To be Qantas, that would understand what they are asking. The website forum is hardly used nowadays and am actually thinking about completely removing I just having our articles. It's costing me over £900 a year for the server and that's just because of the massive database connected with the forum. It's getting to the point where I just can't justify spending that kind of money when nobody bothers to use the forum anyway.

I'm afraid everybody seems to be going over to social media nowadays for their answers and to talk to other OscarFish enthusiasts.

So I'm afraid there's not much I can do regarding the tapatalk plug-in.

I fear that OscarFish lover.com has had its day. I actually don't think there are as many people keeping Oscars nowadays. I can see this by the statistics on how many people visit the website. In our heyday we would easily do 3700 every single day. Nowadays with anywhere between 2000 & 2500..
