Thank you Patrick for reviving the site.  It would be a travesty to lose the old tool encyclopedia that this forum contains. Papaw would be proud!

Glad it’s back. Was worried it was gone forever.

You're all very welcome.

Two steps forward, one step back! Isn't that always the way? I've got the profile views fixed now, so go ahead and view some profiles!

Still working on restoring the attachments directory. I hit a little hiccough with that one. Trying to retrace my steps.

Alright, I found out why the old file attachments aren't working and I know how to fix them. Trouble is, I only know how to do it one file at a time and there are 59k+ files.  :shocked:

I'm going to look for a way to try to fix them all at the same time. There's got to be a way out there somewhere.

The attachments issue has been fixed, and all old attachments (should) be fixed now. Looks like forum avatars are suffering the same issue. I'll get on that in the next day or two.

Update: Avatars seem to be solved, also. I increased the size limit so if you'd like to upload a larger avatar photo, please feel free. :)

For some reason I can no longer post pictures from my iPad. I get an error message about them being JPEG files rather than JPG files and I don’t know how to change them. Any thoughts? Patrick?

as far as i know, jpeg and jpg are one and the same (don't know  how or why there are two naming conventions).   you should be able to simply rename the file type to jpg to make them post.   not sure how that works on i-devices :undecided:
