    Default photobuchet ?

    How do I get my photobucket pictures to show up on TWM without paying $40 dollars a month. Somehow or other I think this may require a good bit of work.

    Thanks for any help you can offer
    Jim

    I have over 10-12 years of forum blogging all pic based off PB. All of it is fucked unless I pay up.

    Coupon code Rock100 for $15 a year off.

    I have been working with them via email but damn it's a slow process. I already had a paid $30 account; due to my heavy uplinking. Anyway, I got them to let me buy a discounted (see coupon code) Plan50, and they are going to enable my linking so it will go back to normal. So my costs went from $30 to $45. Which sucks but I can handle that....

    Ugh!!

    Can we use a different photo service or upload from our computer?

    you can, but in the case of me, I have so many threads and pics linked to that database, that it is impossible to go back and correct it. So I'm stuck with their lack luster service.

    We? Well, you or anyone can use any service you like. Google Photos is free, I believe, and I'm not sure, but the Apple Roach Motel (iCloud) probably has a free tier where you can provide a link and embed large photos.

    But to Chris's point, if you have literally thousands of linked photos on various forums, those links will all fail once you move to another service.

    No, they dont go away, they are still there. They're just implementing a policy whereby they will charge for providing embed-able links to the photos stored using their service.

    But if you dont pay for that service the links will no longer be valid.
