Pumpclip Parade – a plea for WordPress help.

Pumpclip Parade is a labour of love.

Well, a labour of hatred for shite pumclips and the pathetic excuses that are offered for them.

It costs money to host, time and effort to run, but generates no revenue. The reward is the thought that it may contribute to a better world of beer.

This grovelling is to soften you up to to request some techy help in repairing the website – for which I can’t pay.

As you can see from browsing the site, many of the images have vanished. A bit of Googling reveals this is a common problem, or rather, several different possible problems. And solutions to different problems are suggested – but  I don’t know where to start. 

Once stuff like

# disable hotlink protection
RewriteEngine off

and

# protect all content in private directory and return a forbidden error
RewriteRule protected/(.*)$ – [F,NC,L]

and

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

RewriteRule . /index.php [L] </IfModule>

are mentioned, I am absolutely stumped.

If you are not stumped, could you please lend a hand?
