I see only a small picture, and when I click it it's getting bigger. That's since yesterday I thought.
The bike isn't the problem

Right, that's how it's supposed to be since yesterday in order to save bandwidth and to make posts with attachments take up less space on the screen.

What browser are you using?
Have you probably enabled an ad filter (such as Adblock for Firefox), which filters the URL when it finds the word "thumbs" in it?

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

I'm using IE 6.0.29 and have Ad-Aware SE installed.

I can now see the file names, but not the pics

Can you try to clear the cache and see if it's still the same?

Again: if anyone else is experiencing this problem please post in here or PM/email me.

Florian, I have tried CCleaner, and done all the usual to get the pictures to show, but no luck as yet.

That's really strange since you're really the only one who has reported this so far.
Microsoft software has the vice to come apart after a few years of use.
Do you have missing pictures only on the Weight Weenies forums or also on other sites?

If you have the chance you should give the alternate browser Firefox a go to see if the problem happens also there.
If yes, then a system DLL in Windows might be broken, if not some IE bug or registry problem might be the reason.
In any case you'd have a much safer browser then with no need for tools like AdAware or other spyware cleaning tools.

IE sucks. Use firefox, it is Great. tabbed browsing, pop up blocker that is superior to IE, its much cleaner. plus firefox has lots of addons. i do not use IE for anything, any website that doesnt play with firefox, i do not care for (not really, but they will work well with firefox in the future).

use opera, firefox (mozilla), or netscape; but whatever you do, stay away from IE :!:

What happened to the thumbnail function that was happening.

I posted some photos in the expectation that they would be reduced and Frankie had to edit the post.

The smal pics were great.

Bruiser,

if you deeplink to pics on your own or a host site the size isn't affected. The pics will show as you see them on the site.
If you decide to add the pics as an attachment the pics will show as a thumbnail.

I hope this explains it.
