    Why is it I can edit some, can't edit others.

    I've changed file names in Photobucket thinking I could change them in my posts but I can and now they aren't showing. Anything I can do?

    The forum is set up so that you can't edit post more than a certain amount (2 hours?) of time.

    If you PM me with what you want doing I'll sort it out tomorrow.

    Lost me a bit there mate ......

    When I try to edit your post all I get is this:

    [​IMG]

    How about if you reply to the post and re insert all the images you want, and then I'll delete the old post when you're finished?

    Its an annoying rule but I can see the point in it.
    Its mainly annoying in the build threads if you like an index on the first post.

    I'm always happy to edit stuff if someone asks, (and I understand it correctly!)

    PS, Scott, your signature is growing daily!

    So are other mods but they might have enough on their plate with out people wanting them to edit their build thread.

    I know. It will start shrinking soon.
    Its only that size to help spread the word about upcoming events as it seems the event section can get a bit over looked.

    EDIT:=- Better? :)

    The example I gave you is one that will work, the file name and folder name just needs to be changed within the IMG brackets. If you tell me which IMG I used I can send you the new ones?

    There's like 20 pics in each post though? I can do but it's gonna take me ages as each blank photobucket template looks identical.

    Why can't you reply to the post adding the correct links to the pics you want to host. I can then cut and paste your reply into the post you want overwriting the original?

    Right, that should be ok?

    For reason unknown it wouldn't let me copy multiple pictures, so I had to copy and paste each individual image location, and then add the IMG tags at either end ......
