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

Community Support

If your photobucket pics are not appearing in your forums, I found this way to recover them posted on another forum.

-----------------------------------------
If you are using firefox browser add this extension
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...otobucket-fix/

If you are using google chrome or chromium add on this extension
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...=1506768501086

Your old bookmark MIGHT take you to a really messed up page (I had a glitch in Firefox on a proboard site). If it does either logout or login, the proper looking page should now appear. Create a new bookmark.

At this point your forums with Photobucket photos should all appear and work just like before Photobucket tried to rob us of our photos.

Thanks for that, RoadiJeff.

While these extensions/addons help, it may only be temporary as we don't know how long it'll hold up for.

If it works for you, then great! Our techs are looking into getting a universal fix in hopes that will restore all the affected images for good. Until then, we encourage all members to upload their images directly on the site to prevent another situation like this from happening.

Let us know if you have further questions or need assistance with this.


Cheers,
Nate

Thats an option as well, thanks for posting that.

As Nate mentioned, we always suggest you use the attachment manager to ensure that what you post here stays here. It would be an issue if any of these other sites followed PB's business model, then we'd be back to square one.
