    I have found evidence that other members are finding it difficult to post at certain threads. Can someone please identify this RAF film from this description (The Way to the Stars) is a good example. It is clear that both Nick Dando and Rick C were unsuccessful in their attempts to provide links, the latter to a photograph of the Odeon Portsmouth. As I hope they will confirm, the links would have been highlighted (in blue) in the post preview but didn't show up when submitted.

    At the aforementioned thread, Nick's post should look like this:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038238/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    ...
    Having tested various threads, it seems all the technical hitches I described above only apply to threads at the Lobby part of the Forum, with the exception of British Film Chat. We can't post links, videos or images - just attachments. Reply with Quote is also not working properly. This is evident in the last two posts at the Ask a Film Question threads 'Battle of Britain' and 'Film Release Date' (I mistakenly thought Mikey's was at British Film Chat, which is functioning normally).

    So, what can be done?

    Teething problems?

    My latest post, at Film Release Date, was intended to look like this:

    Hi, Mikey. The Daily Express cinema listings indicate that Operation Kid Brother, an A-Certificate film, replaced Beach Red (X) at the London Pavilion on 25th April 1968.

    According to the Daily Mirror, this was to be the film debut of Karin Malik, but she isn't included in IMDb's cast (she doesn't even have a filmography). I can send Don Short's article "Operation Kid Brother", from the same paper's 29th December 1966 edition, if you don't have it.

    Steereo_mono was right. It is Life of Brian (well done):



    Another notable absentee at the new Britmovie is Will.

    Excellent, Dr. F! Echoing cornershop - what's on the left? I've never been able to make it out.

    I'm pleased to see the one with Jenny Agutter again. I got tired of seeing Peter O'Toole all the time..... doubt if I'll get tired of David Niven!

    Hi again and thanks Cornershop for the link to the Missing to the Moon thread - good to read it again - time flies!
    As for the banner I should've gone to Specsavers.

    I think that's Life of Brian on the left.

    Welcome back, steereo_mono (fondly remembered from the Mission to the Moon thread). I thought this was the best known banner?:




    L-R from Peter O'Toole as Lawrence of Arabia, Stanley Baker (Zulu), Michael Caine (Get Carter), Sean Connery as James Bond, an Italian Job mini, The Ladykillers again, and Carry On Camping, featuring Barbara Windsor. What's on the left?

    That was really to test the link to Photobucket - which thankfully works. Now I can return to proper posting.
