Ok should be updated now.

Make sure you post the hosted image first before any text.

The image extension has to be .png, .jpeg, .jpg, .tiff, .gif, .bmp, etc.

I spoke with the tech team and they noted the following:

Quote:
https://www.starbikeforums.com/forums...ictureid=12505 is not a valid image extension.


External images are working, but it looks like this mod has a customized profile that is hiding a valid image extension like seen on a normal profile (like ours).

Ours: Star Motorcycle Forums: Star Raider, V-Max, V-Star, Road-Star Forum - admin's Album: Feb_11_BOTM - Picture

Modís: Star Motorcycle Forums: Star Raider, V-Max, V-Star, Road-Star Forum - bevo1981's Album: test - Picture

Customized user profiles are not supported properly on Toucan.


You will need to add the image for the mod into your profile and use the image there. Or, the mod will have to upload to something else like Imgur, Photobucket, etc.

Ok, I tried the new look and I want to go back to the old setup... The new system is much more laggy and I find that it now crashes Firefox regularly when I had zero trouble with the classic version. You say in the initial posting that it is possible to go back to the original skin but the supposed option doesn't seem to exist anywhere. PLEASE GIVE ME BACK MY TROUBLE FREE VERSION!!!!!!!!!!!

'06 VStar 1100 Classic - black with ghost flames!
Cobra sissy bar and luggage rack
National Cycle windshield
National Cycle quick release hardbags
Lindby engine guard
Driving lights mounted to engine guard

More to come when I save enough cash!

Hey Kyle, it's whatever the current version of Firefox is... I had a prompt to update it a couple of days ago. But the new skin has been slower to upload for me since the beginning regardless of the version of Firefox

Can you try clearing your cache and maybe do some PC maintenance in system tools. It might help with the speed issues.

Thanks,
