Here is what I found on formation in regards to the issue of Photobucket.  Looks like there are going to have issues.  The best option is the image hosting tool we have with the forum itself.  Of course I am sure there are other options any other ideas guys.


Dear users,

We inform you that the hosting images service PhotoBucket, which is one of the biggest hosting service on the internet and used by a lot of Forumotion users, changed its terms of use and you have now to pay to use it.

Since the beginning of July 2017, Photobucket added fees to display the images it hosts on third-party hosting. Indeed, this service allows only the users that have a premium account on their service to see the pictures hosted there. A premium account is around 400$ / year ! affraid

Consequence : more than 100 millions of internet users discovered a notification that asked them to buy a premium account to be able to use the images hosted on Photobucket or just to see them on their own website.

Indeed, the images hosted on Photobucket are only displayed for the premium account and are not shown on external websites they are on, replaced by an image that invites the users to suscribe to a premium account.

SEE EXEMPLE:

To avoid any problem on Forumotion themes and forums, we are going to replace all the PhotoBucket images that are on Forumotion by an empty image.

We'll do it on the Wednesday 12 of July 2017. As a consequence, we invite all the administrators that have PhotoBucket images on their forum to change their host by hosting those images on another host, such as Servimg which stays free.

Thank you for your understanding,

Best Reguards,
The Forumotion staff  king

Just found this you can create an account to the image hosting site that is used by the forum.

I still think flickr is a good option and Imgur is simple as well, the issue here is with Imgur you can only post a link no picture.

I just drop files from my computer. It is easy and I have no need for a service.

Like this one from 1969

Great photo buddy Thumbs Up I know the server on the site is a very simple thing to use but still there are people the have been using Photobucket for quite some time now. I did see that Photobucket has a $2+ option which is much better than the $400 they were asking for. Still there are free option and the server we have is the best option.
