Solved "Look who's popular!" Photobucket image replaced my forum background [RESOLVED]

Post by 8BitDiggler on November 8th 2011, 7:49 pm

I made this forum about 3 days ago, and I check it today to see this:

http://8bshforums.tk

Photobucket stock images has replaced my background and some other images telling me that "image exceeds bandwidth with too many views".

My forum doesn't even get a lot of views.

Does anybody know how I can fix this? All help is appreciated.

Sorry, we can't do anything. You must go Pro to get rid of bandwidth problem.

You can upload the images to other servers.

So if I re-upload every image onto another image storing website, everything will look the way it's supposed to? Or will my bandwidth be exceeded once again due to a certain amount of activity on my Forum?

Edit:
Still, all the images I upload are very very small, I don't understand why I'm given so little storage space. It's just the banner and the icons that I've uploaded.

Yes, it will look fine. Smile
Don't know about the bandwidth, it depend on the site you upload them.

Alright cool, thank you for your time, although I have one more question. How long after I've re-uploaded the images to a different server will I see it change back? (roughly)

Alright, after re-uploading every image file and trying them out to see if they displayed correctly (4 different times with 4 different image hosting websites) the problem still persists. I also went to my servimg.com website and deleted every image file I've uploaded to my website.

Also my website now has major loading issues

Hi,

If the image is still appearing, then you haven't your links in the CSS or Pictures.
Admin panel >> General > Pics management.
If you can't update all the links there, simply click on the Colours > Css. and find & Update the links.

Im sorry but this is the only way to do it.

Ah, yes, I looked further into it and found a solution online. What I did to fix my problem was I went to the Admin panel> Display> Colors> CSS and I deleted all of the Photobucket links.

This seemed to fix the loading problem and the background problem.

Thank you guys so much for your time. The simplicity of this website really made a mark on me and I thought it would have been a shame if I had to take my services elsewhere.

I'm now strongly considering going premium.
