Solved Background image strangely disappeared

Post by Evochron Reavers on January 8th 2012, 3:29 pm

Hi

The background image on my forum has disappeared. It is now showing the tiled 'This image has been moved or deleted' image from Photobucket. This is odd, because even though in the beginning I did host the background image there, I do not anymore. I uploaded it and used the servimg link for it, just like I do with almost all other images. Clearing forum cookies doesn't help, and changing the image to another one or completely deleting it neither.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Apologies, forgot to add the link. Here it is: http://evochron-reavers.forumotion.net/forum

Some additional info, maybe it's helpful:
The background image is an 8x8px tile image from my own creation. It worked without any hitch before. I also used a 2x2px tile image before, also without any problems.

At this time it doesn't seem to matter where I host the image, Imageshack, Photobucket, or forumotion's servimg. It just won't show but instead displays the Photobucket notification.

For some unexplained reason it has now recovered and all is working again. Could it be that there was some kind of delay or maintenance going on on the Forumotion server or something?

Well what do you know - it's back just as quick.

I would like some advice from FM staff if it's possible.

If you have image/images in your computer memory card try uploading it to imgur.com and when upload finish click to image and copy the link. Wink

I found the problem. Updating the background image did not update the CSS stylesheet. It was using a different image than the one I uploaded.

This can be closed.
