Such delays aren't unusual.  Certain things are more efficient using batch processing during off hours or on a schedule.

The thing is you can capture items that are blanked using an external link rather than the URL syntax for display here. Things like the tobacco growing post can be modified to a link to access the right file and then captured and move to dropbox or whatever to then display properly.

I appreciate the info, but it's still not the same when a member has to be redirected to another location for a file.  I was able to upload the PDF for the tobacco story, so it does include the photos.  Negative side is it requires the member to download the file to see it.

That's certainly better but far from perfect, I guess.

You could now click on them and drag them to the desktop - move them to a different site - redo the link and have the pictures display.  Bit of work though.
