Photo Hosting Issues
We have been hit with the same problem hundreds of other forums have where members have embedded Photobucket pictures in their posts. Sometime in June or July, Photobucket decided that free and budget plan members would no longer be able to embed their photos in blogs, etc. unless they upgraded to a $400 per year plan. That would not be so bad, but ALL OF THE OLD links went bad so now forums and blogs are displaying a ransomware type of photo, requesting money.
Our forum allows users to upload and embed photos at no charge. We host them. We don't provide hosting for linking to other sites, but for our members, it is free. There are a number of other free options out there as well as some really good premium sites that are less than 10% of this new charge. We have a few options noted on our forum, which you can read at: https://yamaha-enduros.com/index.php/forums/how-to-use-the-forum-features/6117-photo-hosting-alternatives
Many of our threads are suffering, and hopefully members will be able to fix the really useful technical assistance posts, but for now we are recommending our upload options or some different hosts.
