    Same for everyone but Crystalhead I think. Not sure why the site settings have changed, but it's been like that for a long time already.

    Not being technically minded I think the size of some postings absorbs too much capacity to show in it's original form.
    Copyright is something else to consider.
    There are lots of free images available, however some companies claim copyright even though the posted wording should be the actual property of the person who wrote it in the first place.
    By using their chosen own background they feel they have the right to claim copyright!!!
    However they can't police every website or every persons PC......just my own thoughts as to why it is the way it is. JB

    You may want to create a test account without admin privileges, then try to post an image. It really only works for the Crystalhead account. Regular accounts can't include a pic in their post, only a link.
    Similarly, the last time someone managed to add a picture to an album under the Media tab is more than 3 years ago.
    I tried, it really doesn't work anymore. When trying to upload, you get an error.

    After posting LINK, right click and copy Image, edit post and add. Even as an Admin we do not allow more than one account per User, that may get both accounts blocked. Both Rye88 and myself have messaged Users that play more of the ownership role and requested the fix's with no end result as of yet.
