Re: PhotoBucket became a paid Photos Hosting Service


OK I think Flickr is the way forward.

It allows linking to forums and boards and has choices for either direct linking by URL (text display in forum which redirects to Flickr) or various thumbnail sized embedded images (which also redirect to Flickr for full-sized image).
The following is an extract from their help pages...

Copy the BBCode
    Click a photo to open it.
    Click the Share icon Right-pointing arrow.
    Click BBCode.
    Pick the size you want to display.
    Copy the code and use it on your website.

Get a direct URL to it
    Click a photo to open it.
    Click the Download icon Click to download and image to Flickr..
    Click View all sizes.
    Click on the size you want to see.
    Right-click the image.
    Select Copy Image Location or Copy Image URL (text may vary per browser).

Their ToS lists the usual about copyright, non-violent, non-sexual, non-discriminatory and specifically states linking to blogs or boards with embedding is allowed provided the link-back to Flickr is kept.

Re: PhotoBucket became a paid Photos Hosting Service


See my examples of the Flickr linking in the test section here

Jalal,
The avatar in the control panel does not allow https links.
Could you please ask Runboard why and if there is anything they can do ?
I'm sure we could use tinyurl to create a http link and I suppose once it is done we don't need to keep doing it.
Atleast the links from Flickr seem to work for standard thread posts with the https links

...if anyone wants to see what form the Flickr links are in, just click "quote" in the test section post I did as if you are going to reply and then you will be able to see it

Re:


Thanks Kev,

It seems I already have a Flikr Account for the forum that I used a while back, but am not sure why I stopped using them, something I remember they did that made go to PhotoBucket instead.

Here is one of the pics from one of my existing albums on Flikr. Hopefully it works fine emoticon

Yes it does.

Also note I managed to work out how to get the avatar working...
just had to remove all the code before and after the img.../img placeholders and change the https to http such as

Re:


Well, Jalal, that took me back in time...

Got my letter from PB today asking me to upgrade to a Plus 500 Plan or: "Some features on your account will be disabled".

Does that mean they've finally caught up to me and my avatar and signature will disappear? I suppose I should do something about changing now/soon anyway.

Re: PhotoBucket became a paid Photos Hosting Service


Hi Julie,
My Avatar and signature pics didn't disappear after I got the request to upgrade. That is, I can still see them on my posts so I am assuming others can as well.

For a little while I was still able to expand on other members thumbs/pics but then that was stopped....by PB I assume. I then received the same message to upgrade my account but as stated, my avatar and signature pics are still viewable.

Anyway, Kev fixed had to fix his avatar/signature so I guess it depends on how they were created in the first instan.
I have now tried the Flickr solution and it appears to do the job.

cheers and good luck.

Re:


I didn't receive any notification from PhotoBucket just yet and I have 2 accounts with them.

Yes Dave, your Avatar is working fine for now and so is Julie's, but I'd migrate it across to Flickr if I were you.

Re:


Chances are Flckr will end up doing the same thing in the future, so don't reply on them to host important stuff or lots of files that will be linked in many different areas...

What you might be better doing is set up a paid hosting arrangement ($120 a year will get you an unlimted account) and share it among a group of people and keep the costs down.

The problem with the free sites is that once you have EVERYTHING with them and all the links etc pointing to them - You have a MAMMOTH task to have to go back and re-direct every single link that you have used... I am hosting about 4100 images for a mate who has a few complex build threads on other forums and he has spent almost 10 days (3-4hrs a day) doing the re-direct... he is about 1/4 of the way though...

Use free sites at your own risk...

Re:


Got the letter, now it's all gone.

I'm sorry, but couldn't cope with going back and re-doing pics. Just.too.hard. As I'm sure it is for lots of people.

I think we'll ending up having to host our own pics, for a cost - but at least we'll be paying for something we have control over.....more or less. I've been thinking of using a paid site for quite some time, but nothing ever appealed, and then I forgot.

Even so, paying doesn't guarantee forever, when they can shut sites down overnight, like they did with MegaUpload. Lots of people lost all their information, including businesses.
