To strike a good news bad news balance - this morning the forum is working perfectly, as usual. Hurrah!

Is it possible to put a smaller size limit on photos uploaded to the forum, that way we can possibly retain more photos related to information, and those that wish to post large multiple vanity photos can use an outside server.

I like the "vanity photos" so I hope posters do find a solution. I've always preferred books with pictures.

Me - Flickr. Easy to use and at this time, free. Let's hope it stays that way!

I wish I could link to my OneDrive photos but I don't think that's possible. Unless anyone knows different?

Nick, Tapatalk uses Cloudfare to deliver the forum, which many other sites do to.
To explain what Cloudfare is this is lifted straight of Wikipedia
'Cloudflare, Inc. is a U.S. company that provides a content delivery network, DDoS mitigation, Internet security services and distributed domain name server services, sitting between the visitor and the Cloudflare user's hosting provider, acting as a reverse proxy for websites.'

It's essentially a way to protect websites from Denial of service attacks and spread the Internet traffic amongst a number of servers, so reducing load on the host and in theory its meant to make the sites faster.
I have noticed similar issues lately on other sites I go to that use Cloudfare, Cloudfare seems to of been dropping the ball a bit lately, hopefully they lift their game

Nope new one on me, if you could email the address in your screen capture with what you were doing, what browser your running and basic computer details that would be good as it would give Tapatalk something tangable to look into and might end up solving some of your issues.
