    Default Announcement Regarding Attachments and Images

    As you all know, we had a recent update in the forum/gallery. We *think* most of the bugs have all been worked out now.

    But there was still one problem with the images in posts-

    The issue was happening, because the every time someone uploads an image it was "relocating it locally", meaning it takes the URL and puts it on the GS server.

    This can be convenient for some, but others were having trouble with viewing the images. Also, that system would eventually become a HUGE burden on the server, because EVERY image (by default) was being relocated on the GS server.

    The best option was to get rid of the attachments option all together. I know some of you did like the ability to use the attachments option, but it was just going to end up causing too much trouble.

    Now when you want to add an image to a post, just click the little icon to add an image, and insert the URL of the image. The image will go directly into the post - right where you want it to go.

    I do apologize for any of you that liked the attachment option, I hope you understand the reason we had to make this change.

    Please let me know if there are any other issues you are still experiencing with the forum/gallery.
    Thank you ALL!

    This sounds like a great idea and I understand where you are coming from.
    may I suggest... A set of screen shores to be all members are " sure- sure" and "clear- clear" about this.
