Hey guys,

The instructions provided above is a temporary fix that we can offer at the moment to help restore your images until we have a more concrete solution soon. Moving forward, we highly recommend that you use the Attachments tool within your User CP, Albums and Gallery to host your images on our site here. We can always increase the storage space to better accommodate your pictures.

Furthermore, for Chrome users we came across an extension that will enable you to see the broken images hosted from PB. Another temp fix for now (who knows how long it'll hold up) but here it is - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...bifiaedg?hl=en <- click on that link and do the following:

Add Ext > open the added ext at the top right corner of your browser "P" > select Manage Ext > tick off the box for both Allow in Cognito and Allow access to file URLs > refresh link of affected images to see they're visible again!


If you have further questions or concerns about any of this, please let us know - we're here to help you. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Cheers,
Natalie

Looks like it's working - nice pic! Let us know if there's anything we can help with. We're still waiting on a fix for the affected images from older threads but we do encourage members to continue using the attachment tools and posting them directly on the site so you don't go through this debacle again with another free hosting site.

Thanks guys,
Natalie

FYI, I used Google Photos to upload some pics and was able to post the link in VR successfully. So if you are looking at alternative sites to replace Photobucket, give Google Photos a shot.

My experience on another forum is that Google is a bit hit and miss. I'd look for an alternative.

Before you ask, it's just a thumbnail...

Hi there,

There are alternatives such as Imgur and Flickr if you don't like Google. However unlikely it is for a service like Imgur to move to a paid subscription model, and it does seem very unlikely, the most future proof method of posting images remains uploading them directly.
