  • Problems with Photo Bucket

    All of a sudden all the drop down links to copy either URL or IMG links don't work anymore. They don't even show up unless you run the mouse pointer over the picture. You can highlight the link but as soon as you move the mouse off the picture to click on copy, the list disappears and if you do click copy all you get when you paste into here is either an error message or nothing at all. I have sent Photo Bucket a request for help but haven't gotten an answer. Is there any other free photo thing to use that has the URL or IMG links to post pictures here on Mice Chat and other places? I know that people here use some others than Photo Bucket but I don't know how easy or hard they are to use. Any help would be appreciated.

    I rarely use photobucket, but the last time I did I had the same problem. I think I just manually highlighted the url and ctrl+c it

        There is a reason people call it Photo-Suck-It.

        I stopped using it years ago. Been using Smugmug and haven't had any problems since.

            Yeah That tripped me up when Photo bucket added that feature. Basically the drop down links don't automatically copy for you. I never has and it's annoying. So when you mouse over and click on the link, remember to press command C to copy the link.

            hope this helps:blush:

              I just tested it and it worked for my avatar...just click once, it highlights it and ctrl + c.

              My primary site is smugmug. it is so much better.

                I just went back and looked at my settings in my profile and found out by clicking on the links that somehow the setting had been changed to show links on mouse roll over only. So I clicked the always show links and now it works fine. I wonder how setting get changed without me doing anything. But at least it's working. And I will know to go to my control panel when stuff stops working the way it should.

                The CTL+C thing would not work either. Just an error message from Java Fail.

                And Smugmug costs money. I have enough money problems without adding another pay site. Its a cool looking place but I just can't afford to pay for it.

                  I got used to the mouse over. I like it better now.

                    But how does it work. It disappears every time you try to click on any of the URL or IMG links and the CTL+C doesn't work for me at all. It doesn't copy the link and all I get on pasting is that stupid Java Error message. I like the links being visible and clickable. I just sent a picture to a friend in a PM and it worked fine.

                      My settings changed too, so I changed it back. And the Ctl+C still doesn't work for me either.

                        you have to hold down ctrl while pressing c...then ctrl v to paste. IDK...it works for me.

                          Yes, that is the common way to cut and paste, but it isn't working for me.

                            oh, I sense sarcasm...like I said IDK why it would work for me and not anyone else. It's the same site for everyone. At least there is a option to make the links show all the time. Good find lost boy.
