Photobucket Broken Links

Post by starr- » Sat Aug 12, 2017 10:19 am

Alright so i'm sure many of you have noticed all the broken images around the internet (pictured below). >:( Seriously F*** photobucket.

Anyone have any recommendation for a new site to use?

On a different forum site that didn't support attachments, I used Mediafire to host the image then direct link the html image code into the text and it would show.
Here's an example:

Basically what you do is upload the image, then right-click the file -> view, then right-click the image -> copy url, then plug it into the post between the "[img]" tags.
Clunky, but it's free 10gb.

I've moved on to Imgur. Not my fave but no major gripes yet. I'm not going to go back and update thousands of posts from the last 12-15 years on a dozen forums. I was just about to switch anyway due to their website being all but unusable due to all the garbage other than my pics and their continual effing up of the interface to get to my pics. PB can enjoy the free advertising I'm giving them. :mrgreen:
