Template references to powerchicas.nl?
« on: May 17, 2010, 06:43:49 AM »
Does anyone know why the site's template references off-site images at powerchicas.nl? This seems like a bad idea for a number of reasons. First, performance. Second, what if that site goes down at some point? Third, some security apps will flag this as ad-like behavior and block the references.

Would appreciate info from anyone who knows if there's a good reason for this. If not, I'm going to grab all the images, put them on the local server, and change the paths in the template.

Ok. Perhaps he'll pipe in here. Hopefully it's ok to just host them locally though.

That's correct. Christine helped create the forum theme and we never moved over the images to the server and updated the forum files.

I am sure she would have no problem for us to move the images over.
