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

By consensus, we will be moving forward with dropping the limits on editing posts so users can fix their own threads manually. Once we are confident we are all good, we'll raise the limit again

This is good as a work around for now but we can't guarantee that 3rd party browser extensions will always work. Our techs are still looking into a fix to restore the affected images - your patience on this is greatly appreciated.

Moving forward, we highly recommend that you use the Attachments tool within your Go Advanced option (can also be seen in your User CP), Pictures & Albums and Gallery to host your images on our site here. We can always increase the storage space to better accommodate your pictures if need be.

In addition to chrome's extension for this fix, we have also found one for firefox:

Chrome -*https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-embed-fix/naolkcpnnlofnnghnmfegnfnflicjjgj/reviews?hl=en

Firefox -*https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/photobucket-embedded-fix/?src=ss&hotlinkfix=1505232105684


Let us know if you need assistance and/or have any questions.


Thanks,
Natalie

Are you able to increase the size of the image that we can upload using 'Manage Attachments' as they are so small compared to PB.

Hey there,

Thanks for the update on PB. This is all up to the user's budget :)
The free alternative would be the extensions mentioned in post #4
