    My guess would be he's blocked from using FTP at work so he needs something with a "web uploader"

    www.lycos.co.uk allows remote linking and uploading from the web.

    That takes effort, particularly if you want to secure it properly.....

    Still more effort than signing up for a lycos.co.uk account

    Cheaper as well, but it has more restrictive limitations.

    Indeed, but if you only want it to link images, thats hardly a problem. Especially since he's currently using geocities which is more restrictive

    We have been over and over this.

    We did a phpbb upgrade and it disabled all but appropriate image extensions for security reasons.

    Sorry, sir, I missed the memo.

    The good news is that my txt avatar still works.

    I've been trying to reach you, but your extension cord doesn't reach that far.

    Says you. Get a better host than geocities. There is a thread in AFK and I have told A duck! of two more that are pretty reliant.

    Not necessarily directed at you, but why is it a security risk to allow those extensions in the post, but not a risk in the avatar?

    The avatar also presents a security risk, I suspect they just overlooked it when they mad the patch.

    Though unless you are carful the avatar makes it more obvious who is causing the problems than the post body.
