Missing images in posts!
« on: July 25, 2017, 02:55:15 PM »
Ever since the great Photobucket ransomware struck, we have been looking for a solution for images. We are working hard to fix the problems caused.

Thank you for your patience

I am not sure what the admin is planning since most images are posted by forum users and linked here. I know lots of people are looking to using Imgur.

I decided to host my images for posing at my own web site using Piwigo gallery. I now have that running on my site and I am using the extension Piwigo2Img to generate [ IMG ] tags for insertion into posts.

That gives me a solution nearly as easy as Photo Bucket but totally under my control. My hosting service offers support for Piwgo gallery so the install was a piece of cake.
