Unable to edit? Pictures are missing and there is no way to fix it. This has ruined my blog.

in #steemit5 years ago (edited)

The recommended image host imgsafe.org has lost my pictures and now steemit removed the edit button needed to fix it.

I had over 20 articles full of pictures. I was proud of my pages. Now they look awful.

Blog entries without pictures now show markup language commands, and are generally worthless without pictures. These were pictures I took, so it's not copyright issues. Like this product review, 10 pictures are missing, now it is completely worthless. https://steemit.com/bbq/@bbqbear/bbq-product-review-hand-forged-iron-pigtail

I do not want to share broken crappy looking pages with people...

If there is no way to edit it, can I just delete them?

@dantheman @ned Don't ruin peoples blogs because of a security problem. Give back the ability to fix this.

Edit: This change will result in duplicate content being found by search engines. I will have to repost my articles with correct image links to fix these problems.


I agree this is something that will have to be considered. Locking posts after the first payout causes some problems with maintaining a blog. I understand why the restriction exists, but a conversation should be had around ways to handle long term editing.

I am also frustrated by this problem!

It seems like imgsafe.org decided to block hotlinks from steemit. Fair enough, I guess, but we need a way to edit our old posts and replace the broken picture links!

Yes. This change completely ruined months of work.

You could host your pictures somewhere else, then re-post your blog entries again with the new links.

That is what this change forces people to do.
Duplicate content, and leave crappy broken copies everywhere for search engines to find.

you can host them here https://www.steemimg.com/

this is so cool. thanks. but why bother creating an account?

borad of edits!
