Photobucket images are no longer being freely 3rd party hosted by Photobucket. What this means is; any image youíve been using on your forum(s) that has been hosted by Photobucket, is no longer available via Photobucketís actions. Yes, you can pay Photobucket to provide the 3rd party hosting service, but it isnít cheap.
Read the information at this website and youíll understand more about what has happened to any images you were using (3rd party hosted by Photobucket) , see You must be logged in to see this link.

So, this means that many images Iíve posted within this support forum are now no longer available for the readers to view. As to any other website hosting images that might serve as a replacement (free) 3rd party hosting service, I have none as of now to mention.

Know this, this isnít just a problem for ForumCo members, but rather all (world wide) Internet siteís that were using Photobucketís service to post images within their pages.

It appears that Photobucket is once again allowing 3rd party image sharing. My images have once again started showing up within this forum, and my private forum. I have no ideal how long this feature will continue to last. I'll have to check into this for more information.

I've been a little busy with some other projects, but I did find out that there is a Class Action Lawsuit against Photobucket over this 3rd party sharing issue. I think it was brought about (started) around Aug. 2017. I'm guessing the case has things on hold until that is finished.
