Photos no longer work
Sep 23rd, 2016 at 8:41pm
 
I tried to post some of my recent work via Photobucket but the photos don't show when I preview - just a little red box.  I never had trouble before. I tried to reduce the file size using the program recommended but the pictures just turned into color blotches. I even tried to load the reduced pictures via Photobucket but got the same little red box.  I then noticed that photos included with past posts have disappeared.  I don't know what changed this year but posting pictures is now a hassle - at least for me.

if i remember correctly, PhotoBucket was blocked earlier this year because of the large lag time in loading photos. I am looking into this.

also, and this is a software quirk, if you load photos and preview, you have to reload the photos before you post. people are working on a fix.

Sorry Eric, Dave is correct, Photobucket was blocked because of the complaints I received.

The complaints were:
1) Getting redirected to Photobucket's site
2) The time it takes for a photo to load by those with a slower internet connection
3) Photobucket's long and inconsistent connect time.

I've mentioned numerous times in the past that Photobucket is not the ideal place to host your images for viewing on our forum and I'm sorry you are affected by this.

You can upload your images to either our Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register or here on the forum.

Images in the Gallery remain there until you delete them.

Images uploaded by using our Attachment Feature remain on the forum for 2 years (upgraded from the original 6 months).

Thank you for understanding
