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.

Thank you

This is a real pain. It has screwed up a lot of the DIY threads. Honestly I can't go back and fix all of these, I have over 5000 images posted here. Way to go Photobucket!!!!! Greed.

We have the space to accommodate any images you want to host here with the Gallery, Garage, or direct posting with the Attachment Manager. Once hosted here, they wont be going anywhere.

If there is anything we can do to help, let us know!

Hey there,

Are you looking for a tutorial on the process of uploading images to the site using the attachment manager?
We can create a sticky thread for this, that way members who are not familiar with the process can check it out.

What do you guys think?

Richard.

Please do.
The only way I have found is to load the image into the galllery, then link from there.
On my Ipad, thats the only option I have found.
I wish the insert image php script in a thread post had the same insert image interface as in the gallery.

Tutorial on process of uploading images to the site using Attachment manager:

This is done individually when you want to upload your image(s) within a post or new thread. For reply post - select the Go Advanced editor option and use the attachment tool (paperclip icon) which will open up a small window that says "Manage Attachments." Here you can Choose File (if saved locally on your device) or Upload File from a URL (if you migrated your images to another hosting site) > then select Upload.

It'll then appear below a new section that says "Current Attachments" which the size file indicated. If you change you mind about the image(s) you uploaded, you can always remove it/them. When you're satisfied with what you've uploaded, you can Close this Window (top right corner).

Now, back in editor mode, select the downward arrow next to the paperclip and a drop down menu will appear. It'll show all the image/file you uploaded. If there are multiple and you want to upload them all in that post, simply select 'insert all'. Once you selected it, it'll appear in the white text box as [ATTACH ]XXXX[ /ATTACH] x's being #s then you can Preview Post to see how it'll appear and make any necessary changes if needed, then select Submit Reply.

Follow the same steps if you are creating a new thread, you are already in the 'Go Advanced' option and will see the paperclip 'attachment' tool in your row of functions above your text box.

Then, if you go to your User CP (top right corner) > left side, under Miscellaneous - Attachments > You will see your list of attachments.
---------------

How's that for the sticky? Let us know if there's anything that could be clarified or any confusion and we can turn this into a sticky.

Thanks guys,
Natalie
