      Can you make the pictures not hot please. Anyone can click on them and it takes you away from JPR, to the originating web site. Once there you are free to root around on the site, in what is normally fairly secure territory.
      Any other site, you can only see the picture in question and nothing else, as you are only allowed to see the picture in question there.
      This is a security issue for me, as I don’t particularly care to be having strangers rooting around in private areas of my web sites.

      It is one thing to right click and open a link, or save a link and quite another to actually go to the site as JPR is setup to do now, as if one has permission to look around at someones otherwise private site areas.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
      If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
      Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
      Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.

      …. but I see how this could be a security issue.  Thanks for pointing that out, retired liberal!

      Where did you see this?

      All the images i’ve come across aren’t hotlinks. Members do have the ability to insert a url into the image.

        Scroll down to the nice ol’ lady with the ruler.
        I have never had this problem before. I could take any picture from my photo site and they were never hot.

        I’ve figured out how to avoid the hot link problem, but still it is a problem that needs to be looked at.

        P.S. This site can be slower than molasses in January. My computer fans spin up whenever I change pages. This usually indicates a css problem. No, or improper set-up cache?
