It's a great way to lean Linux in a gentle, easy way James...

You'll find it's nowhere as scary as it might be made out to be...

Linux learning is never a waste of time...

It will take a shed load of work to re-link all the images then ?

What is best, bulk upload or leave "as is" until Media-Fire tells me to bugger off ?...I have been using them for years now without any payments/problems

I'm not scared of Linux at all, I've had reasonably pleasant experiences with it. I just chose apple over linux years ago when I abandoned windows as it was less faff setting up. Setting up an email server is a whole new world but funnily enough I did used to have my own domain albeit on a commercial server and it didn't trouble me. As I don't take pleasure from IT type stuff I have no recollection of how I did that.

Image file upload facility - DANGER

Postby Old-Guy » 16 Jan 2017, 20:07

I suggest that anyone intending to write a post that includes images should:-
    1. Compose all the text (minus images) and submit it, then
    2. Edit the original post adding and inserting just one image,
    3. Submit the edited post containing the one image,
    Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each additional image.
Why?
Because if you type up the text of a post, spend time locating and adding several images, and then click on the (name of the) next image to insert, you will see the image. IMHO, this is the intuitive thing to do if you have saved edited images with meaningful file names. There is no (obvious) way back from the image view - you have lost all changes since the last submit (if there has been one)! :shock:

Hugely frustrating to put it politely - especially if you've done it twice in a row.

Saving a draft is little help as it won't contain images or any record of what they were.

I can see your issue now. I don't have an immediate fix, but as a workaround, you can right-click the image link and open it in a new tab, which will leave your original tab intact.
