Hi,

Hope this is the right place for this. I was MIA for a while and recently back and just today noticed that my profile picture was missing (it was there yesterday). It looked like I needed to update my settings in photobucket where I had that picture. I did this, but it still didn't appear so I tried to choose a picture from another source (facebook). But it's not appearing for me. Can you tell me what type of sites I can link from? I don't want to continue to use Photobucket. I tried using Flickr just not but that also did not work,

Can anyone advise?

Thanks
IrishKitty

Photobucket no longer allows hotlinking unless you pay $400 a year for a paid membership.  https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/4/15919224/photobucket-broken-images-amazon-ebay-etsy-paid-update

You could try Imgur.com or Dropbox or Google Images

I use a paid website for my pictures (well, actually, the freebie tiny account that came with my bigger different named website) so I don't have to worry unless my webhost folds (3X in almost 20 year.. 1 host died, 1 retired and now I am #3 but all 3 are the original tools/site etc just ownership changing hands).

Yeah, Photobucket started to give me problems a while back so I switched to Imgur.
