Topic tags/keywords: photo question

I’ve been trying to follow Gary K’s blog on building a harpsichord. The blog has numerous step-by-step photos imbedded in it. I can’t get any of these (or embedded photos in other blog entries) to display. I do get the photos on the project pages to display okay.

I am running IE8 with a Windows Vista OS. I am also running Norton Internet Security.

I thought I might find a FAQ page that discussed this, but I have not yet found one.

Can anyone give me a suggestion as to how to get these photos imbedded in the blogs to display?

Gary, I believe the problem lies in the fact that up until a couple of years ago, the site did not host its own photos for blogs and forum posts. You had to post your photos to an image hosting site like imageshack or Flickr, and link to them externally. Consequently, if a poster later removes those photos from the hosting site or closes his account with them, the photos will no longer appear in the post.

Since Gary’s blog is from a good while back, this is most likely the problem.

I agree with Charlie. Try sending GaryK a private message. I’m sure he will help you out.
