    Where is your pic stored? If you move it's original location (storage place like Photobucket), then it breaks the link here as well.

    Do you have links to example pages or posts where pics are missing?

    Can you link directly to the post or page with them missing?

    Where were the pics hosted? Did you delete or move pics around?

    Once you upload a photo to any photo storage site or space and link to it in a thread you should never ever move that file from the storage place. If you move or delete the image it will never again show up where you linked to it.

    A big slice of birthday cake sure is pretty on a plate. If you eat the cake there is nothing left to look at. Gone. Poof.
