Depending on what galaxy and time zone you are in, it should be getting close.
It does not bother me that the pictures are not here, but rather, the unkept promises of next week for the past six months.
I will admit, I am computer stupid, and cannot imagine the amount of work it takes to move the pictures over, but a bit of honesty would be appreciated. Promises kept?

The task itself is a real booger, and can be complicated by how the original (old) images were stored and organized... but I do have'ta wonder about the say /v/ do relationship thing (all that said now, they images probably are already waiting, but are being held-back by some other more relevant process).

My largest concern is the number of Google (and other) searches that should land on a good thread here, that instead lead would-be readers to a post that has no value without the accompanying images... often threads that used to be well-illustrated and very helpful and could be a gateway for advertising revenues (unique views) are now empty and meaningless and that reader is 'going elsewhere' to find their information.

Ah well... Sorry we missed Easter.

Satan I really hope there weren't any real Easter Bunny's killed in the making of the commercial above!

It should be quite simple to re-instate the missing images in old posts, assuming a back-up file from the old server is still available.

There were on the old server in the format:

Code:
https://goldwingfacts.com/forums/gallery/123/123_051241_560000001.jpg
where the /123/ sub-folder is the user's ID number.

If the old /gallery/ folder is copied as-is to the new server, all the images in the old posts would become visible again.

The problem is that this wouldn't recreate the Photo Gallery in the new software or allow members to access and edit their old pictures in there.

But getting the old posts working again is surely the most important requirement? If necessary members can recreate their Gallery by uploading afresh.

regards,

Martin.

thats a non-issue Stan,, as a sitemap gets sent to Google every day so the links to threads and posts are always up to date.

i think the folders are all still there, , but the problem is we all have different member ID numbers to what we had before, and the old gallery image folders have our old member ID numbers. so working out who owned what gallery folder in the old days is a headache.
but as you said, having the old pictures available at all will be better than nothing.
