    Deleting pictures

    I keep getting to a stage where it says that i have used my quota for uploading photos, so i go to the end of my attatchments & delete a page as an ongoing thing, just realised though that it looks like when you delete them it also of course takes them off the threads so anyone looking cannot see the pics anymore which ruins the posts altogether, is there any way around this, why do we have a quota??

    There's good reason for having an attachment quota. Basically all the attachments use up storage space on the server. Without quotas things could get carried away and we run out of space

    As for using attachments, personally, I don't really like them. I find it much better using the image hosting feature and think the way the images display in the posts is better. Attachments aren't a very robust way of keeping images online

    For the deleting part, yep, that's the case. If you delete any hosted files or attachments then it'll also disappear from anywhere that file is referenced. That's just the way it works.

    Guess what ... Out of the top 5 users with the most attachments on the site you're number 2 with 584

    What are all the attachments ? If you want a photo album setting up I might be able to sort something out.

    So you mean there's a chance that the same picture has been attached multiple times ??

    If that's the case then it's not the best way of doing things

    The best thing that could be done would be to get your pictures online, preferably albums to match your folders and then just link to an image in your post (with the [img]...[/img] tags). This is how most of the images on here are displayed.

    A guide of how to use the RnS image hosting is here --> https://www.rodsnsods.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=305

    For your albums/folders i'd suggest looking at using something like Picasa
