most of the old Photos were hosted thru a site called Photo Bucket which was a host ( 3rd party ) ...but was shut down a few years  ago .

That’s the issue with “hosting sites”. I had hundreds of pics on that site.

For those who arnt aware how it all works I will try and explain.

Images and files need to be uploaded to a website called a host.
 they stay on the host and arnt actually on the website your viewing unless it has an Image hosting facility and that costs from not much to several hundred a month depending on how much room and bandwidth you purchase. Picture it as a remote fuel tank and turning the tap on from a dribble to fill. This means how big the files can be and how many times they can be viewed before you get a message from the host that bandwidth has been exceeded.  Still with me?

There are several image hosting add ons for the software that runs this forum that can at the press of a button upload and link (add a direction sign and order to display the image at the image address). and this is where it can get tricky as there is very little control of which images can be displayed as copyright and "other" images may contravene the websites hosting conditions.
All in all it can be a giant headache and require constant supervision and I doubt if thats something being considered by our webmaster or it would have already been done.

Im sure somewhere on here is an instruction how to but anyways.
(There is and its here  http://forum.ozvmx.com/index.php?topic=6667.0)
Easiest answer is to get just a little computer smart as its not that hard after the first few times. Open an account on one of the free image hosting websites yourself. or you can use facebook or any image on the internet but the address will get longer the more its linked from the original host so  best not to "borrow" others pics before asking.

Upload your pictures.
The host site may may come with BB code address or HTML codes already done for you or you can right click the image and select copy image address.

On this forum, in the Reply box , hover over the first pictogram button which is under the change color box.

 You will see you have inserted the word IMG enclosed in sets of square brackets with a switch on the last one. That is the software code to display the image at the address we talked about up the top. It says start and finish and no spaces are allowed either side of the address or it wont work so it will display like this.
Code: [Select]
[IMG]https://www.dirtbikes.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/TM400A.jpg[/IMG] and it will look like this when all the code is correct. you can see if you did it right by looking at the preview before posting. best of luck.

It shouldn't cost anything.

Upload your photos to an image hosting site and then insert it's URL using the 'Insert Image' button- lower left on the panel.

I was wondering, how many dollars would need to be collected/donated, per year, for this site to be able to have an easy load option for pics, like most other websites? Maybe if a thread for each year could have a running total, so we know how it's going, I'm sure many would contribute.


So where did this get to?....Is there a dollar figure?...I'll contribute for sure, would be great to see more post and pics on this forum.

Gents,
I'm looking for a shop in Melbourne or central Vic to rebuild a 1973 Honda XL250 motor.....Would like to find someone who really knows these old bikes well.....Please don't suggest placing an ad on any of the facebook pages, just too much 'noise' there for me.

Cheers.
