I can't get ImageShack to display my pictures any more;

    I can't get ImageShack to display my pictures any more; they just show as a red 'x' (and I can't do anything by clicking or right-clicking it). Before I go pestering the customer service guys, I thought that I'd check here to see if anyone else is experiencing similar.

    They did a server dump, I don't know if it was intentional or not, but I lost some of my pictures I had hosted on them and had to re-upload them.

    That's the same site that I use, and I even tried it through the donated link, but it's still doing the same thing. It says that the picture is there, and has all of the tags, but it won't display. This is what I get:

    That's the alleged forums link to my picture.

    I can tell from the link that it's an incorrect address. Are you selecting the option for "direct link"?

    I am taking a wild guess, but try removing the .th from your file as it may screw up the link.

    When naming files it is ussually a good idea to not use .'s since some programs will get confused and think it is a new extension.
    Try _th.jpg instead. (Or just remove all dots, I know that imageshack changes the filename so perhaps you did not type .th but you typed .something)

    Hmm I see you changed it and it still doesn't work, that's odd.

    Weird. It's showing up with a black background instead of white in the thumbnail. But the link works if you click on it.

    Edit: Even if you go to the page of links in imageshack, the thumbnail shows up funny on their site too. I've never seen anything like that before. Not a red X at least. :rolleyes:

    I got this from their FAQ, I guess it is possible that the server is down.

    I uploaded an image and hotlinked it, but it shows up as a red-x.

    I am posting this both to test if my imageshack is working as well as to show you what I see when I click your image.

    Thanks, all. I didn't, in fact, name the file at all other than car1.jpg for storing on my own system. I transferred it to this work computer via thumb drive, and it renamed the thing by itself. :grumpy: I also didn't change it back.
    Anyhow, I took your advice, radou. ImageCave worked fine. The link is for an Engineering thread, but I'll put it here as well just in case you're curious.

    Well, nuts! Now I'm getting a 'Explorer can't open page' message when I click on it.

    Thanks, 'Circles'... but that doesn't look anything like the picture I uploaded. I can tell that it's the right one because of some of the parts and labelling, but my picture is a coloured-in blueprint. :confused:

    I see all of them, so still am not sure what the problem is. No red Xs (or blue question marks...Safari's slightly politer equivalent) other than the one in dontdisturbmycircles' image that includes one inside some other stuff.

    Well, the code is all messed up there.

    I see it, but it's nothing like the original on imageshack.

    If it makes any difference, this is not a new thing for me. The same thing happened with the drawings of my Hallowe'en makeup about a month ago. I still can't see them.

    I just thought of something. The ImageCave code that I picked was for a thumbnail. I'm going to deke back in and grab the one for a big picture.

    edit: [​IMG]

    Well, that certainly didn't help any. :grumpy:
