  1. Hi Guys. I did so and somehow the pictures won’t appear anymore. what did I do wrong? What is this doing to my system? and how can I restore the pictures?
    I fully downloaded the images-directory “img” on the server. There are two folders which I tried to restore but couldn’t handle it….

    what way do you suggest?
    Thanks for your help

  2. WTF? All my images disappeared now and are replaced by questionmark images. How does the new image storage system work and where are the images actually stored? I’ve moved the images as described above and also set the radiobutton appropriately. How can I solve this issue?
