Replacing pictures lost from Photobucket

Post by brackish » Wed Jan 17, 2018 4:43 pm

I posted a number of pictures in the finished and launched section of this forum. My pictures were hosted on Photobucket and when they abruptly did away with their free photo hosting, those picture disappeared. Is there a way to add them back from another source. Does this forum have the space to accept direct from my pictures and host here or do I have to go third party hosting such as Google photos?

Brackish,

We do have our own photo hosting, both via the "Add-on" Gallery function of the forum itself, and a separate gallery installation that is tied to your forum username at http://gallery.bateau2.com

Please feel free to use either of those for your images for this forum.

Unfortunately there is no way that we can retrieve your images that were hosted on third party websites. If you still have your photobucket account, you should be able to retrieve the images by logging in and going into your albums.

Thank you for the information. I still have all my photos, they were just on Photobucket to use as third party hosting. Is there an edit function whereby I can go to my old post, remove the photobucket broken links, and replace with good links from another source. Or do I have to do a new post to have the photos in the launched section?

I moved the pictures I wanted to show to my gallery here and then inserted them where needed in my old threads. I am sure there is a better way but this worked for me. Took a lot of time :cry:
