    Where, a couple of days ago, I saw pictures rather than links to them within the body of a thread, and subscribers' signatures, I no longer do so.

    Can anyone suggest why this may be?

    Hello,

    You can add images in the thread (see this part of the FAQ)

    There is a limit of 6 pictures in one post.

    There are more BB codes you can use:

    Greetings,

    Thank you Bertus, but that doesn't answer my question.

    Take a look at this thread http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=23295

    When I first looked at it I could see the three pictures in the first post. Now I can see only the URLs.

    When I had added my post to the thread I could also see the picture I posted and my signature, but now I see only the URL and no signature.

    Something has changed, but what?

    I still see them very well. It is possible the hosting site was down at the time you looked. It is one of the reasons we have a local site to host pictures, not to mention the ability to do the same with attatchments.

    BTW, Wikipedia's definition agrees with me on ground, one person does not set the conventions. Yours is also true, it is an or condition.

    A problem with the hosting site may well explain non appearance of the pictures Bill, but what about my signature?

    It is possible your browser settings may need tweaking.

    While that is a reasonable suggestion, I don't believe I have made any changes to my browser settings for ages.
    Neverthless, what settings would give the results I am experiencing?

    Depends on what browser you are using...

    Of course. It's IE7.

    There's no problem with Firefox.
