Atleast its really easy to download all of your albums off of their platform to switch.
Please let goob know...this site needs to be updated. CACO is one of the easiest sites to upload pics straight from your/anyone computer to upload images/pics. None of that upload to a image host then tag onto here. Don't know if it's a server software program or what...

This is from another forum I'm on where the hotlinks still work:

"Lucky for us, none of this will affect our site, or pretty much any other Xenforo site with knowledgeable admins. Someone has an addon that works around this link block*they have instituted and downloads the images locally as permanent attachments."

Why does it work for some people, but not others then?

Do you have Tapatalk?
Sent from my LG-H910 using Tapatalk
No but I might have to look into that. The links I posted worked for about 5 minutes then they were blocked again, lol. I was thinking, okay they don't won't allow 3rd party hosting without paying fees, but I posted a link directly to Photofucker's site so that people could view the image on their site. Nope, they blocked that. Which is stupid. Why would they not want you to send traffic their way, where the image is actually hosted? They're going to experience a mass exodus of users.

+1 for Tapatalk.

However, as we're seeing with Photobucket, there isn't a long term solution so Tapatalk, Imgur, whatever works for you.

This explains why some older accounts are still linking pics:

3. What users are affected by the changes to our 3rd Party Hosting

policies?

Moving forward, new and legacy free account users will NOT have third party

hosting available.

If you were a Plus Account subscriber in good standing as of June 1, 2017,

you will continue to have all the privileges you have enjoyed including 3rd

Party Hosting until December 31, 2018 as long as you maintain your

subscription.
