Pictures have disappeared. Please help!

Post by razza1987 on January 12th 2018, 9:54 am

I used forumotion to create a forum. The website address for it is:

http://mjfa.forumotion.com/forum

None of my pictures on the entire forum are currently showing up. I used Photobucket to create it. What is going on??? Someone please help!

There is one way you can get around this but it is a long way around it.

log in to your photobucket account
you will see all your items just fine.
Now open a new tab on your browser and log in to your forum.

Now if your forum is messed up (The layout) you can use the URL off of photobucket
then on your forum you have a host called servimg you can use them to host your items for free.

all you need to do is this

then add your photobucket URL here


Now just replace all the missing items

Thank you for posting the video showing how to host. I just wish there was a way to get the pictures that were already on the forum but are no longer showing up Sad

Photobucket changed their policy. You have to pay now for posting images on third-party sites.

Unfortunatelly the photobucket problem is caused by a business decision by the owners of photobucket. In order for you to place images on external websites they want you to pay to upgrade the account to a premium one. It costs alot of money, so unless your willing to pay that the only other solution is to move the images one by one to a new image host, such as servimg.

I believe also TinyPic does the same thing.

It's not letting me view some of the pictures in my gallery on Photobucket either. I'm getting the same third party picture instead of the actual image
