My little piggy logo has not functioned since the last forum rebuild for some reason. I don't know why. It's a sweet little piggy.

I noticed someone the other day with their signature image linking to an upload on this site. That doesnt work as you need to have a 'propper' URL to the image, i.e. www.pulse-jets.com/files/image.jpg rather than the attachments script; www.pulse-jets.com/files/downloads.php?file=blah

phpBB has disabled images with endings other than jpg, gif, png etc for security reasons.

But, how come it worked before? You'd post an image in the forum album and just link the signature to the image's URL in the album. It worked fine for a while and then it stopped for me. Steve's worked much longer but it has also stopped now. Weird.

The forum checks if the image is 'correct' whenever your profile is edited. The feature would have appeared with the forum upgrade a while ago. Did it disappear after you edited your profile?

So, if I post the image here it will appear in the filelist and I will be able to link to it. But, I can't link to an album image in the same forum. Weird.

It does work! I still find it funny but at least it works. Thanks for the suggestion.

Childish, I know, but it does make me happy.

So, because I can no longer edit the original message, I have to make a new one to post a pinkier piggy.
