Lost Images on My Posts
Posted by Papa_D on Monday, April 16, 2018 9:29 AM

FYI

I was surprised this morning to see most of my of the images in my previous posts have been "lost". The host site that I use changed the direct link address. Here is a typical old address:  

     https://s20.postimg.org/dw0bifggt/Marx_400_Windup-_Edit.jpg

The "org" has been changed to "cc". It's possible to edit the images in each post to make this change. I've done so on the current active post on Marx mechanical engines. It will take some time for me to update older posts. My rant of Why, Why, Why!!!!!

This topic got me curious, so I did a little searching on Postimg.org. There doesn't seem to be too much information on the site. But I did see a few calls for it's blacklisting. If the site was commonly blacklisted, then they might have changed domains to get around it.
