Hi Jim,

I see this from time to time on DCT: "Image can not be found" and am wondering what it means? And why the phrase is used?

I hazard a guess, that there is no suitable Smiley to fit the occasion?! - as in the recent (postal) uproar over Linux...

Thanks, Jim.

Bye for now, Bob.

Hi Bob,

This came about when we changed the forum platform over to WordPress about 3 years ago. WordPress handles images much differently than our older system did. Dave transferred everything over but there was no way to simply transfer the images... we would have needed to upload and re-inset each image individually all over again. Seeing how this chore could possibly take months, we decided that the posts would be just fine without. :)

So, the "image can not be found" message happens in older posts because: the link (or reference) to the image remains intact but when WordPress looks for the image in its database, it can't find it.

Hope that makes sense mate, :)
Cheers... Jim

Thank you Jim. I understand, but am overawed by the tremendous complexity of technology, indeed of Operating Systems (Windows, OS X, Linux) and other things, as you mention, tied in with technology. Take MS Windows: it seems Microsoft itself does not know how some of their own stuff works, and why it sometimes goes wrong - at least, so I am told.

Well, I doff my hat to you techno-geniuses, indeed I do, but sorry, the image here can be found: Surprised
