Solved Images disappeared from the forum

Description of problem

I discovered this week that many images have disappeared from my forum, in almost all the threads/Topics.

The images are ones that I copied from Tumblr. Another member who was assisting me discovered that Tumblr has changed the URL for the images that disappeared. The URL of the disappearing images changed slightly. For example, at the time I posted a certain image, its previous URL used to be: http://67.media.tumblr.com/4874c8a97c05de48393981448d840586/tumblr_oh3238mGto1uetdyxo1_500.jpg

But now the URL for this same image is now: http://68.media.tumblr.com/4874c8a97c05de48393981448d840586/tumblr_oh3238mGto1uetdyxo1_500.jpg

It seems the difference is that the number which followed after "http://" in the original URL of this image once was "67," but has been changed to "68."

The URL of other images changed where the number after "http://" used to be "65," but now have been changed to "66." I haven't gone through all the posts to see what other changes there are in the URLs of the images that vanished, so there may be more URL changes other than these 2 examples.

Can anyone please help me? Is there a way to bring the images back in a way that I do not have to re-copy the images, from post to post?

Thank you in advance for your help or suggestions. I really appreciate any help I can get.

If the images' URL's change, the only way to fix it is to change the links on your forum.

Thanks for your reply. Is there a way that I can fix the link, by doing search and replace (for example, search for "http://67," and then replace "http://67" with "http://68")?

You mean on your forum? I believe it is not possible.

You will have to talk to tumbler about this problem and voice That you have lost your items due to the change and maybe they can work something out as we can not really do anything about this as we are not the host of that site.

Thank you both for your suggestions. I appreciate it.

So there has positive movement on my problem. A member of my forum has suggested a method that works in terms of bringing back the images. The method involves going to the Admin Panel. General-> Word Censoring. Then replacing "http://65" with "http://66," and replacing "http://67" with "http://68" (and also doing the same with "https://" versions). Then going to each post with missing images, "edit," and "send." I tried doing this method and I must have done something wrong the first few times, because it didn't work. After a few attempts, it did work and the missing images were brought back. I was wondering if someone may suggest a similar method where I can do something like this, but forum-wide, Category-wide, or topic-wide (in other words, so it does not require going post to post)? Thank you in advance.

Thats a good way to do it but thats looks to be the only way to do it as we don't have a system that will change the text of a thread other then going in each thread and changing it your self by hand.

I still say talking to the host about this may help things they may have a way to fix this for you.

Other then that we can not do anything to help as its a host problem and not ours Sorry.
