Setting attachments to display as links rather than automatically show on the screen. I think this will help a ton as when threads develop around an image it will not get viewed over and over and over....
Just doing it as a test now and hope it does not cause that much of a problem.

Over the past few days, I have not ben able to view any of the pics that have been posted. Do I need to change any settings on my browser?
I tried this morning and get a second window to popen but it is just a blank page
Did you get this resolved? Haven't heard of this one yet... let me know.
The speed seems fine but I have not been able to view the images. The images no longer show inline on the post itself but as an attachment. When I click on the link for the image the result is just a blank window. I think it was working yesterday from work but not from home today. I dropped the firewall and got the same results.
Not complaining just giving some feedback. Keep at it Sean, and thanks for your efforts.
I just tested striblue's lobster log pic - came up in a new window just fine so it's not a global problem.
What browser? ISP? Maybe in the cookie security settings?
Well, after all the fund-raising is over we might be able to flip the switch back to all pics on - but for now we believe this is making a big difference in bandwidth consumption.
Hmm will look around today and see what I can find out about the images not displaying on some browsers. Anyone else out there having this problem and what browser are you using?
I've turned on accept all cookies as a test, still nothing on a refresh.
Here's the url I tested with.
That's funny, the url I attached is missing the s=6e018cafb2d420b85cccc246e29a42c2& It was in the text box before I hit post.

The URL works fine for me. I had a similar problem once and had to re-install my cookies, and short cuts I used to various pages. I was goofing around with my security settings and moofed everything up somehow. :rolleyes:
The problem was on my side. Looks like zone alarm pro was getting a little over protective. Blocking private headers was the culprit. Sorry to waste your time.
That is good to know as a few others were having problems. Figure it was a firewall type issue.
Also I know the first version of IE6 that came out did not allow opening links in new windows. It would open a new window but the window was always blank. I had this problem and had to install an updated service pack to get it working. This could also be a problem some are experiencing.
For all those who are having trouble with the attachment links please try again tonight. Found some code that may be the culprit for some folks.
