    Im having issues posting from Photobucket

     

    the links look like this when I post from my IPad:

    %5BURL=http://s124.photobucket.com/user/reddavehasbeentaken/media/VL%20Commodore/IMG_0224_zpsnnbc809b.jpg.html%5D%5BIMG%5Dhttp://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p30/reddavehasbeentaken/VL%20Commodore/IMG_0224_zpsnnbc809b.jpg%5B/IMG%5D%5B/URL%5D

    If I do it on a PC it’s fine, just the iPad, it might be me being retarded but I’ve been doing it this way the whole time I’ve been here, only the past week has it played up

    How many people on here are now affected by Photobuckets change of Terms & Agreements ?

    Basically I am screwed as there are no longer 3rd Party Hosting Images to forum etc unless you become a paying member.

    The year fees are nothing short of extorsion.

    Not a fan personally but then I’m not much of a fan of living your life using your mobile either.

    Didn’t like Photobucket either TBH, I’m not a fan of the so called “cloud computing” craze period because what Photobucket have done will happen more and more where so called free storage will suddenly incur fees and your data will be held to ransom effectively.

    I keep all my stuff on my home server.

    I keep all my stuff on my home server.

    I do too, actually on a usb stick I keep on my key ring, but also at work on my personal drive so its backed up.  But am I right, that programs like PB are the only way to get the image code for posts in the forum?

    Also, still unsure why all my image links work form PB, but I see others don’t, why is that?

    All my pics are gone, they just show a message about upgrading my subscription to allow 3rd party hosting. What a joke, their Facebook page is exploding with complaints. It’s gone from a free service to $399, shitloads of build threads will  be affected, and a thread without pics is almost useless and will reduce forum users and visitors

    So I have looked into my account, it says i am currently a “Plus 20 member”, I assume somehow thats remaining current for a while, but it looks like you can be a plus 50 for $6 a month, that seems fairly reasonable.  $399 would be ridiculous.

    Yep, $5 a month thereabouts wouldn’t be too bad, but from all accounts you need a Plus 500 account to be able to link images to be shown in forums

    If that’s the case that’s just insane, I just found them on FB, wow people are not happy.  Incredible anyone in business would make a decision like that and not have half an idea what the consequences may be.  $399 is just crazy. I think maybe I am not effected (yet) because way back I signed up for a $2 a month account so i wouldn’t get the adds.  But its says it runs out in August, I assume after that the cost will go up.

    Lol, sort of ironic I am using photobucket to post this!!

    Looks like you are right, its only the top plan that will allow the linking, thats just bullshit.

    Probably only a matter of time before your pics don’t work me thinks.

     

    You could always host the pics directly on your own forum server.
