    I have been using Photobucket for years on all forums I visit including this one. Recently when I copy the image link it shows up like this:

    %5BURL=http://s284.photobucket.com/user/Re...BF2B-EE775A38AF74_zpsv9xugd9y.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

    I can see this website is changing the link as I just tried the same link in a different forum and it worked. Not sure what may have changed here.

    If you go into the settings you can select which type of links you want to share. You want to use the bracketed IMG link to paste here

    Ive been having all sorts of issues with photobucket too. I switched to imgur and mediafire

    What settings do you speak of?

    It's weird because it works in all my other forums.

    Photobucket sucks. Moved a year ago to postimage.org. Hated to do it, but just too time consuming at PB.

    WARNING: Be very careful using Imgur.

    I used it for a couple years and posted many pictures to SVTperformance.com.

    All of a sudden, my pictures and many other members disappeared, and there is no way to get them back.

    I contacted Imgur and they told me that SVTperformance was one of the sites they blocked for breaking their rules.

    Here is a thread on it:
    Do Not Use Imgur for Picture Hosting

    I was recently trying to upload a picture on a private message but it won't allow me. Do I have to use a picture hosting company with a back link?

    I know the regular Message boards allow for me to upload the pictures directly but not for private messages.

    Also photobucket sucks
