Problem
Can't post pictures from Photobucket

Question

For some strange reason, I cannot copy any pictures onto my posts.  I just tried copying the same picture to a post using several different methods but none will work.

 

See here for test post

OK, great news!!! The problem with Photobucket has been resolved.  All new images will work. All old images now work too. The only problem that we have is with the images that were posted while we had the problem.  Those will have to be reposted.

this seems to be a photobucket specific problem

 

All the links they give you are not to the actual image, but to the page with an image.

so this 

 

http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn251/jgerock/1986 325e Auto/IMG_6292.jpg

 

Does not actually represent an image. If you click ont hat URL, you end up on a page.  The only way for the software to interpret that as an image, it actually has to be am image.  As you can see, the links to Flickr work without issues as they lead to actual images.

 

Please, contact photobucket to see what they changed.

I still believe it is the space in the album name.  Second one works, but the first one does not

Have tried to post with pics for several days- still not working. My project blog on the 69 now has an assortment of pics and broken links (from older posts no less).  I will contact pb today. I just noticed another FAQ project blog has the same issue (02tom m2 riviera).

 I am up to date on my payment to pb and the amount of storage.

Posting from a different album (almost ALL of my albums have spaces in their names - from the very beginning of my PB account).  Now looks like the "Direct" copy method isn't working here but the "IMG" does.   The "IMG" copy method was the original method I posted here on the FAQ until instructed to use the "Direct" method.

 

"Direct".  The interesting thing about this method is before the actual image would show up right after you pasted the link - now it doesn't.

I'm seeing the same issue as a Free photobucket user. I haven't been able to get any method via photobucket work since aug 26

Jake - lots of comments from users on the photobucket web blog.  Many folks cannot even access their accounts.  Some are getting a "site maintenance" error - something I haven't gotten yet.
