F&%#%ing Photobucket..
« on: July 14, 2017, 02:35:40 pm »
I am just beside myself about fu%#%ing Photobucket !

Users have been finding out about it as their embedded images on other sites have turned into placeholders telling them to update their accounts, and as Photobucket has rolled out email notifications telling them that if they want to keep embedding images, they have to pay $399/year.

Can anyone recommend a good third party photo hosting site that has no problems with embedding images ?

Fu%#%ing Photobucket has just totally screwed up five plus years worth of compiled work and research for myself and forum members..  I am about as pissed off as a guy can be !

Check out this post

Well, I opted to try Google image hosting..

The image links are huge , so shortened them using tiny url..  Woke up today only to find the forum apparently does not like the tiny urls either in the sidebar or within signatures..

Now member signatures will not accept the long Google image link..

Is there a way to make it so members signatures can accept more characters ?

I would not advise using google those urls are too long I am not sure is that official image hosting from them? Google tends to kill of its projects so I would be wary.

imgur.com works well. I switched to it years ago after i abandoned the uselessness that is imageshack.
imgbox.com is nice too. I'd recommend either of those.

Thanks for the recommendations!  I started putting some pictures on imgbox.com, but I'm stuck on how to share an individual picture if I'm posting in my smfforfree3 site.  Any tips?  At first I could hover over a picture in my gallery at imgbox.com, and click on a red box that appeared.  From there I could figure it out.  But that only worked once for me.  Now there isn't a red box to click on when I tried again.

Never mind!  I figured it out.  :-)

Does anyone know of a style that doesn't have this problem? I've tried switching styles but all of them have photobucket images used...
Please help ...

Nevermind, I found one that I used a long time ago.

If anyone has any other style sheets for smfforfree3 that don't use photobucket, please let me know? Thanks in advance. I really appreciate it!
