Hi, Admin. Didn't I make a post with links to my recent GAP photos? Is that allowed? I am sure that I created it, but somehow I cannot find it.

Anything with a link gets checked first by admin before it becomes visible. Give it a day, likely even less than that.

Bill in Houston from Houston on 11/3/2020 1:23:57 PM:
Hmmm. OK, will keep watching.

Still hasn't shown up, so I tried again.

OK, submitted a post with links for pics again. It's been a couple weeks and it's not approved. Google Images is your source for GAP images. :)

Bill I apologize for all the trouble. As John mentioned, some posts must be reviewed before they appear here. But there seems to have been a glitch in the program that notified me when posts are waiting for review. I'm sorry about that, but we should be good now. I've done the following to make sure your posts get through: 1. Fixed the email issue so I'll get notifications again when posts need review. 2. I added your IP address to the "trusted" list, so it should now always accept your posts with no review needed. 3. I loosened some of the restrictions that flag a post as possible spam. For example, I realized your post might have been flagged as spam if it contained the word "gallery", because that is a word that appears often in spam posts (you can just imagine). But since your post was about photos, it might have contained a legitimate use of the word "gallery", so I lowered the severity level of that word. Most of the other words in the "spam word" list are not appropriate to mention here (again, you can just imagine). 4. I added some extra diagnostics so that I can better see why posts are getting flagged for review, just in case yours does not get through again. Thank you for participating in the C&O Forum, and again I'm sorry about all the trouble.

Bill in Houston, go ahead try one more time to post that link for the photos. Looks like Ray got it sorted. John

Just tried again. Thanks, Ray!

Bill thanks for coming back to share your photos! They are in a separate thread just below this one. In case these two threads get separated over time, here is a link to view the post with photo links: https://bikecando.com/talk.aspx?tid=10674&mode=disp
