Advertising photobucket question ?

DeVlaeminckDeVlaeminck Posts: 6,334
Anyone know how to post stuff for sale using photobucket for the images ? I tried advertising some kids bikes and it's been deleted with a warning for not adding working image links and a message to use the preview - the thing is I did use the preview and the links work for me so obviously that is not the solution.

I am guessing there is some kind of permission to let others view photos on photobucket but for the life of me I can't see it?

    Yep... Your PB link works.

    You can still edit/delete your own posts.

    Curious - do I dare repost then given I'll probably get a ban if it doesn't work for the mods ?

    Thanks anyway

  • just use the image code from Photobucket. Your image then appears in the post, as opposed to a clickable link. so, instead of this.....

    you get a thumbnail like this...

    or a picture like this......

    So you have not read the rules?

    If you had you would know you can not do so in the classifîeds.

    You would have also seen there is a guide covering all this.

    Also as this has nothing to do with CP moved to discus the website area. Which also has images covered in the faqs.

    Not in the classifieds you can't.

    With regards to DeVlaeminck we have worked out what went wrong, he originally posted in the Wanted section and realised that he has posted it incorrectly.

    The new advert he just copied from the advert not from the code, so as the url are truncated it didn't copy the full url in the advert, thus the links didn't work.

    He has sent me a PM confirming this.
