The Photobucket changes coincide with security changes that, frankly, are unavoidable in today's www. Basically, one of the prime motivators for the latest forum software upgrade was the need to go to serving all content over SSL (Secure Socket Layer), which you will recognize by addresses starting with https
rather than http. It's all about security.
All content coming from 24hourcampfire servers is now https compliant. BUT, third party hosted images are still a crapshoot. So, we can have an entire page of secure content coming from 24hourcampfire, and one 125x125 avatar hosted on a non-secure third-party server (most egregiously PhotoBucket), and the page is not secure. We can't do that.
We need to move to fully secure pages 100% of the time, and that required me to purchase a whole lot more hard drive memory, SSD (Solid State Drive) of course for speed.
We are going to need to migrate to uploading images to these SSDs so the entire website is 100% secure, always. I can only control 24hourcampfire servers. What happens on third-party servers is beyond my control.
Holler with questions.
