Photobucket is dead, move to a different provider.
Any heads up as to what may be a good reliable one, I have no end of trouble trying to post pictures even from my phone?
Yeah. Photobucket sucks. I can still attach photos from my own Gallery though.
I still struggle, mainly using my phone, and I am a bit of a dinosaur.
I could still use a push in the right direction for a simple way I can post pictures and videos on here, I have tried to post them but just keep being told files are too big etc.
Use a hosting service like Imgur. You can upload all your images into specific folders on your account there. When you want to post an image over here, you just click on the share link and copy over a link pre loaded with image tags and just paste on the forum. For videos, just copy and paste the url from YouTube. Nice and simple.
Excellent, thanks for that, hopefully I can post some decent pictures next time I try to!
Testing for: Cubeupload and vgy.me, second.
Does anyone know if there are any freebies out there that have the same sort of filing/sort system as Photobucket, e.g. album creation etc?
Just signed up to VGY and they do have album options. It might be the one but need to do some more tests.
Has Photobucket had a change of mind, because my photos seem to be linkable again, going by what I've just posted?
Strange, they work here but not over at rcgroups.com.
Any ideas why that might be?
Nope, they have gone. They worked for about 5mins but now they are dead.
Edit: For those interested, I've gone with 'postimage.org' as a hosting site.
I've used dropbox, super handy to use via phone too. But aparently all the cool kids are using googledrive now.
