Instead of showing the picture you get a link you have to click on to go to the picture. A lot of people complain and would rather see pictures and I can't do anything about it if they won't post. This just started.

    Unfortunately unless you pay the ransom you can't use pictures from photobucket on the site.

    Hey, we had some security changes recently that will prevent an image from showing up if there's an embedded link. Please share any examples with us and we'll try to get them sorted out. We might not be able to verify/whitelist every site, but we should be able to get most big ones.

    Thank you.

    Actually Photobucket reversed that decision. The problem the OP is having is not related to that.

    Yep Photobucket is under new management and has lower prices.

    I can't paste the image to the picture thing above either but this was pasted directly to the forums not the image thing at the top.

    Hi @catloverplayer,

    Are you copying the URL link from the address bar of this page?

    When I open that link, right click on the image to 'Copy image address' and then use that URL on the picture tool here on the forums, it looks like this:

    I just copy or img on photobucket and paste here.

    Thanks for explaining, @catloverplayer!
    This was the reason - images should be showing again now ;)
