    Hello folks…

    It appears that Photo Bucket is gradually working their way through their subscribers accounts, implementing their new pay policy where you can't link your pics from there site to other web sites like ours....

    Apparently it's become a huge deal on a lot of other sites where people have hundreds of pics referenced back ...

    I need to test some code to see if we can work around it for now, but I don't have PhotoBucket account that’s been penalized yet. It’s important that you be a member here who has already had their account blocked and have NOT signed up for their Plus 500 $40/month Subscription. So, can one of you guys who use Photo Bucket (if you have it) and meet the previous criteria, try to link a picture into this thread?

    If your account that has been blocked on other sites to showing your Photo Bucket pics, you’ve probably been seeing this pic below.


    (Click PIC to Enlarge)

    If that’s the case and you now see your blocked elsewhere picture here, then it appears this temporary workaround is functioning correctly. so you should be able to continue linking your pics without signing up for their Plus 500 $40/month Subscription

    NOTE: Sooner or later Photo Bucket will adapt their code to cover this hole, but until then, this code modification may (or may not) work.

    Use IMG codes if you can ...

    Thanks ...

    Regards,
    Doug

    Thanks Youngblood....

    It appears we have a working fix. Even though Photo Bucket is blocking pics from some accounts, basic subscribers will still be able to post them in threads and posts on Milsurps.Com.

    Note: For now, this workaround for members only works on our site and no other Internet sites. Also, once you've linked to your post pic from Photo Bucket, it may take up to 15 minutes for it to appear on Milsurps.Com. This is due to a background processing maintenance routine that runs every 10-15 minutes and it's what converts the Photo Bucket blocking pic to a member's real pic. During that wait, you will still see their blocking pic as shown in my previous post.

    For those of you who have referenced (3rd party linked) your Photo Bucket pics to our site for the last 7 years, they have all been preserved and saved on our servers for everyone's benefit and research. Therefore, they still appear in your posts here as they always have.

    For more information on how (and why) this works, read this thread Why are my images from Photobucket, ImageShack etc. copied to milsurps.com?

    Hope this helps some of you ...

    Regards,
    Doug

    It's possible that Photo Bucket have done something to block our workaround of their block....

    So, I need another test to see if our workaround is still functioning.

    It’s important that you be a member here who has already had their account blocked and have NOT signed up for their Plus 500 $40/month Subscription. So, can one of you guys who use Photo Bucket (if you have it) and meet the previous criteria, try to link a picture into this thread?

    Here's a photo meeting your criteria which I'm sure hasn't been previously posted on this site:
