Default Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Photobucket Terms of Use http://photobucket.com/terms

Thank you

Any suggestions regarding correcting this? Wait till photobucket gets their greedy hands out of everyone's pockets or just move to another site?... does anyone have a site they like and use other than photof--kit?

If you have listed your images on another hosting site we can replace the IMG code with the broken one for you but we will need a link to the new image, and the thread in which it is broken.

We also have some work around's that PB has not put a stop to yet, so we can try those but we will need links to your threads with broken images.

There is a Chrome extension which is getting positive feedback: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ifiaedg?hl=enm

Let us know if we can help.

Drag them to your desktop, name them if so desired, then when you post on the JJ, hit "Go Advanced"; scroll down and click on "Manage Attachments"; click "Choose File" in the new small box that'll come up, and then "Upload." (There are two "Uploads"; click the upper and then the lower.)

Back to the large (JJ) screen. Click on "Preview Post" to make sure it's good. When you're satisfied, click "Submit Reply." Done.

A real tech writer could probably have made this sound less complicated. In fact it takes only about a minute, and you can put up multiple pics in a single post just by returning to the small box and accomplishing the minor rigmarole described above.

Real good to see your smiling avatar again, Lester.
