    Used to be so straight forward but I can't find it anymore. Used to be just a matter of opening up your profile.

    Cheers,

    If you click on your name have they now become "your attachments "( ie the images you have posted) or did you mean something else?

    No, unless I'm going mad, each user had a gallery on AVF that he could upload pictures. Perhaps they were removed when the new forum software was introduced but I'm sure that I've used it since then.

    I can see my attachments but I barely used to use that method. I used to use the AVF gallery and had loads of pictures uploaded.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    I'm really surprised about this - expected loads of answers by now.

    I've been looking through my past posts which would have included images from the gallery. Like this one

    For Sale - Huawei E585 MiFi - Unlocked | AVForums

    The images have mysteriously disappeared

    This is the link to one of the images

    http://www.avforums.com/forums/members/44930-albums898-picture12759.jpg

    As you can see, AVF Galleries certainly di exist, although they were called Albums (I remember that now) but I can no longer find any trace of them.

    Where have they gone and if they are no longer available, what has AVF done with all my pictures?

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    I had several albums with loads of pictures amongst them, so where have they gone?

    I have never deleted my albums.

    And how would you get to that link from the user interface?

    I suspect that AVF have removed the facility and deleted all the existing content?

    Can anyone here confirm that they still have an intact album?

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    Yes it doesn't work for me either. That was the point I was making - that link is pointing back to where the albums used to be - they are no longer there.

    Cheers,

    I know exactly what you mean, I used to use the Album in my profile as well, and its gone, I also have no album in IG's links. Looks like personal profile albums have gone, and any we did have have all vanished/ been deleted etc.

    I don't believe they were intentionally deleted, I think they were left behind when the forum migrated. IIRC correctly everyone was asked to make sure they had everything they needed before we left. It looks like you will have to start from scratch :(.

    Please don't shoot the messenger.

    Don't get me wrong, thanks for the input. I do fear that any content from the old forums is gone though.

    Thanks for looking into this. A bit of a shame, but at least my sanity is intact - I started off certain they used to be there but when I couldn't find them I began to doubt my memory and whether I was thinking of another forum.

    So apart from the link you posted, how would you get to the new Albums through the normal user interface. When looking for the old ones I didn't find the new ones either.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    Thanks, looks like you are correct.

    What an obscure place to put it though. Albums are related to members so they should be accessed from the member drop-down or profile not a general public one.

    Also the Community Drop Down seems very temperamental when I used it. At first I was going to reply that there wasn't one - then I realised that you have to keep trying and holding the hover and eventually you will strike lucky. If you then get the drop down and don't select anything it sticks down obscuring some of the site.

    I very odd implementation in my opinion. Odd place to link personal info, and odd behaviour of the drop down itself.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    That only shows attachments to posts, the profile albums were different and I know my old album images don't appear via the attachment link.
