Updating Photo Links
« on: April 20, 2018, 09:31:55 »
A few hardy souls (not least Nik) have started updating photo links.  It isn't too difficult but is time consuming.  You can only edit your own posts and links:

- open the post you wish to edit
- click 'Modify'
- delete the old Photobucket link
- click the '+' next to 'Attachments and other options'
- go to 'Attach', browse for photos and attach the one you want; repeat as required
- click 'Save' bottom right

Please let me know if this is not clear!

Since I started ‘Project Replace’, Peter(dkp_cobra) found an image host called PostImage, which is simple & basic & FREE!
I have now completed the BEX333 thread using them as follows:
1.Open ACOC post you wish to modify. Note the name of the ‘lost’ image(s).

2.In a separate tab, open Photobucket.
Locate the lost image(s) in your album & download it.

3.In a separate tab, open PostImage and upload the image(s) you just downloaded.
(You will have to register first, and it may be easier to create new albums for specific topics as you go along)

4. Copy the ‘Hotlink for forums’ code found in the ‘share’ icon on each image.

5. Paste this code into your post on the forum, replacing the existing Photobuggerz code.
    Repeat for each image.

Simples... ::)

Also, after I had finished (AAAARGH!!!) Mathew (on the Frua section)has posted a Fix code that you copy into Google Chrome, Mozilla, or Opera. This bypasses the coding in Photobucket software that blocks images.
It works. BUT. I do not know what security or safety implications there are to this, so please, I do not recommend using this, download at your own risk!
