This isn't important, but, if there's an easy answer, I'd appreciate hearing it.

I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird.

In the last few hours, whilst logged off from the forum, I've received notications for 3 topics. The first was from Eugene here:

http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/topic/76598-a-few-hand-crafted-gagboards/

the second from Lee:

http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/topic/76599-my-2015-travels-part-1-miamis/

and the last from Simon:

http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/topic/76601-124th-waltzer-rebuild/

All of them list the file names for the photos in the topic's first post. Those in Eugene's notification can be clicked on and opened in a Firefox window. None of Lee's can be opened. Only one of Simon's can be opened.

I can't see why there should be any difference. Anybody?

Hi John

 

It will be impossible to say what is happening from the info given.  If you are able to forward me the email I can investigate. 

 

Regards

using Firefox and the links John provided, I can click/open ALL photos from each post in a new 'gallery style' window.

Done - I've sent the last one.

I think you might have misunderstood my post, Harry. I'm referring to the links to individual photos in my Thunderbird email notifications.

I've looked at the email you've sent and can offer an explanation :)

 

The email you've sent me displays all six photos in it. Only one is a link though. The one that is also a link is the photo which hasn't been "inserted into post". That is, if the photo in a post has been inserted into that post it displays in the email as a photo. If it is an attachment but not inserted into the post it also displays as a clickable link. If they were correctly inserted into the post none would display in your email as links.

 

All the best

 

Bill

Thanks, Bill. :)

It always bugs me when these things happen for no apparent reason. :(
