3rd party hosting issues


So now Photobucket wants $400 a year for 3rd party hosting. Which has caused this problem for the board i help mod...

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Is there anyway to remove those huge boxes from the board? It makes it very difficult to read older posts. And frankly it's just ugly and annoying. Any help with this would be amazing. Thank you all in advance.

Re: 3rd party hosting issues


 ... hmm ... As a temporary fix, try adding Photobucket's URL to the censored words list. Not sure if that will help on the board's design images, but might help with images posted in posts.

If you have the powers to do so, you will need to upload the images to a new site, and then switch out all of the URLs/links in the CSS, HTML, Customize language set, & Edit layout / colors of your board sections in the board's control panel.

You will also find the image links in there to delete in order to get rid of the hijacked images, but you'll need to copy/paste all of the info to a doc or thread to make it faster and easier to add back in once you have the new images ready to put back up.

Pastor Rick has a list of all the sites you can and can't use here on Runboard in this thread:

Re: 3rd party hosting issues


Thanks! I will share this info with my admin (she's away from her computer for a bit)

Hopefully we can get it sorted. I already pay for Image Shack for all of my personal photos so it would be easy to use that, I just need to make sure that the tier I pay for allows us to do what we need.

Thanks again emoticon

You are most welcome.

It's a lot of work to relocate and switch out all of the images, but it's cheaper to do so. I really think they're going to find it was a bad move on their part. People might have paid had the price been more reasonable, and they had given plenty of time before shutting down 3rd party hosting.

Re: 3rd party hosting issues


Photobucket is committing business suicide IMHO which leaves everyone who has trusted them in a lurch. This is not the fault of anyone on the staff of this board or [sign in to see URL]

If anyone needs smilies to fix their message board, I am attempting to post the collection of smilies I have collected over the years and host on [sign in to see URL]

The collection which grows almost daily may be found in this post at my Design Elements message board (]over here).

Re: 3rd party hosting issues


Thanks, Rick. I had intended to link to that info, but I didn't know where to look for it ... and I'm still uploading tons of smileys at Whoosh and redoing the smiley code threads ... sometimes I feel like I'm never gonna be done with this task.

Trying to work on my nonFiction Book and game board & card game sets that will go with the book as well. This happened at a bad time, and has put me in a foul mood, I'm afraid. Which is why I keep stating I'm fixing to delete every blasted board I own. *eye-roll* Why is it never easy?

Thank you Pastor, that is a really good collection! emoticon

Natasha, I'm sorry your board is having to deal with this. I agree with Pastor that Photobucket is committing suicide! And it's exactly what they they deserve! emoticon


I have to [sign in to see URL] photobucket horror, is the FIRST time since I closed Queeny's [sign in to see URL] I have been HAPPY that I closed it. I could not even imagine trying to change over several thousand Lord of the Rings photos, wallpapers and smiley's... emoticon

Re:


No more custom backgrounds for me, I guess. For now, they are still ok on the 3 boards I help manage, but the day the images disappear, there is always Runboard background sets to us (thank you RUNBOARD!!)

Re: 3rd party hosting issues


Don't forget that the skins use graphic elements hosted on [sign in to see URL] which is not going anywhere in the foreseeable future. Between Runboard, [sign in to see URL] and CSS tricks there is a whole host of things that can be done without looking for any "outside hosting site." emoticon

Re: 3rd party hosting issues


Natasha, I just looked and saw that these photobucket-hosted images were still an issue, so I added a line of CSS to shrink them all down to 15x15px... with the exception of the banners at the top and bottom, since they are still visible for some reason. I hope this helps.
