Need Help With Profile Page (Vanity)
Skydancer | 22 Feb 2013 | Skydancer

Posted on 02/22/2013 4:48:48 PM PST by SkyDancer

Profile page only loads some of my pictures from Photobucket.


TOPICS: Computers/Internet; Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: html; photobucket
I'm not sure if this is tied to Free Republic going down or the new Photobucket website. The pictures are there but won't load. Thanks for any help

Most of the pics on my profile are hosted at photobucket and I haven’t had any problem with mine...

Are the Picture loaded to "your" account on Photobucket?

Because sometimes if they are one someone else's than the reason they are not there is because that user either took down that picture or closed the account.

But if that is not the case Photobucket itself is slowly going to Pot. I have several missing pics on my profile pages as well, I just need to get into the code and replace them :\

Are you using the “direct link” URL for each picture?

The html of my profile page hasn’t changed. The pictures you see there are from my Photobucket account. They changed their format. Just wondering if that’s it and I have to make a new account with just my Aussie pictures ...????

I checked the “direct link” on one of the photos in your profile (Snoopie in the plane) and it’s different than the URL you have in the code.

The html of my profile page hasn’t changed. It worked fine before. Now all of a sudden some of my pictures show up from Photobucket and some don’t even though they’re there on Photobucket...

Yep, since the photo's are from your account then it must be because Photobucket has screwed the pooch again.

I would suggest a New File Storing site entirely, I know FReeper MestaMachine has had trouble with it, you might check with her or Cripplecreek.

They were going to move their graphics to a new site.

Sorry I couldn't be more help :\

You need to resize your background. THAT is what is killing your page. The phots load. You just can’t see them unless you scroll WAAAAYYYY over.. You have to limit the width of your table background.

The current URL for Photobucket now is: http://s1108.beta.photobucket.com/user/skydancer30/library/

But that doesn't explain then why some pictures show up and some don't since it's all from the same site. Sheesh!

I can see everything on my laptop. I’ve a 17in screen. Do you see everything? I see where it says “Photobucket” instead of the picture but no picture. I see everything from left to right at the same time.

Right, but when I looked at the series of linked provided by photobucket, yours matched up with some of them, but not the direct links. Either they changed it, or you tweaked something on your photobucket account to cause the link-types to change. I dunno.

I think I’m slowly getting it ... I see where the URL for Photobucket is different from the originals but that doesn’t explain why some load and some don’t. I’ve not changed the original FR html page.

This part here is different:http://s1108.beta.photobucket.com

That s1108.beta never used to be there. I think I have to change some of those pictures to that part.

I’m using Firefox - have been for years. I think it’s the new URL that Photobucket is using and is somehow messing up some of my pictures.

That’s a tad odd. It may fix it for a bit, but once their “beta” goes live your links will probably all break again because they’ll remove “beta” from the link text.

I can see all of the pics, but if you haven’t changed anything, then it just ain’t matching up with MY browser because I have to scroll past the FR header to see them. Did you change your background?
All my images are fine from photobucket, but I hate the new and destroyed format.

So you’re saying you see all my pictures on my profile page? No “PHOTOBUCKET” instead of some pictures?

AND check the FR formatting because sometimes when you add something, it screws up the html table commands.

But the thing that puzzles me is I’ve not messed with it. All this happened after FR came back and I went to check the page. Weird. I’m using Explorer so I’ll see what’s what.

Well “Geeze Louise” as my granpap sez ... in Explorer I do see all of it. But as someone said it’s too wide. All the pictures are there. But in Firefox, they’re not. I need an adult beverage about now. Brain fried.

Right. So in Firefox I get that photobucket but in explorer I don’t but it’s too wide to fit. Grrr. Was working just swell.

Well ... yeah ... they pushed the FF updates on me and even if I said no, next time I brought up FF they loaded. So how do I narrow up the background and why would FF not show up like before? RATS

I just thought of something else. photobucket, darn them, has resized a lot of background pics and made them much smaller. So if you had a presized background like I did, you have to resize it on your pc and upload to a different site to keep your image size. I used Image Shack for the background.

Thanks. I think I figured it out. Maybe. I updated Firefox per their instance and it loads FR a bit slower. I think that FR allows just a certain amount of time to load. I see everything using Explorer. When using FF is when I see the problem. Also I have to figure out how to squeeze the background html to fit. FF fits fine on my screen (plus problem) but is stretched way across where I have to scroll back and forth.

< table background=”image” bgcolor=”” border=”” cellpadding=”” cellspacing=”” width=”” >
< tr >
< td >
< p >
< center >

And at the end:
< p >
< /td >
< /tr >
< /table >

Close the function thingies when you format.

NOTICE: Since Photobucket changed their format some links on my profile page won't load properly. Not sure of the cause. Kinda upset after all the work that went into it.

This Is Who You Are

You are incredibly sexy. There's no way you could hide it, so you just flaunt it. You are a naturally talented flirt. You make everyone feel fascinating and attractive. You have a wild streak. You like to have fun, and your idea of fun is pretty outrageous. You dare to be yourself and live life courageously. People respect you for it. You are totally spontaneous and unpredictable. Even your best friend doesn't know what you'll be up to next.

You are full of joy and enthusiasm for life. You love adventures, and you always want to include your friends in your plans. You are usually the one who brings the fun. Nothing can be boring when you're around. You are flexible and easygoing. You're willing to go along with almost anything! You are an amazing friend - you are the perfect mix of fun and loyalty.

You believe in yourself and in others. You think the world is a bright and brilliant place. You are a positive thinker and a total optimist. You believe it's important to dream big. You are very liable and charming. People know they're going to have a blast when you're around.

You Are an Adventurous Valentine Your heart soars whenever you have the chance to do something new, and that goes double for Valentine's Day. You would love excitement and novelty to celebrate this special day. You especially love surprises! Your ideal Valentine's Day is unconventional, quirky, and not traditionally romantic by any means. You don't like a lot of pressure on V-Day.

You just want to have some fun! Compared to most people, you are very active and energetic. You have a daring, challenging spirit. You're willing to go into something blind. You are playful, carefree, and optimistic. You are up for trying anything. If you dream it, you usually end up doing it. You're not one for putting your dreams on hold.

You are down to earth, well grounded, and practical. Some may even call you sensible. You say what you mean and you mean what you say. You're straight shooting and honest. It's likely that you're more of a productive type than a creative type. You enjoy working hard. You live in the now and enjoy every moment. You appreciate what you've got, and you're also very humble about what you deserve.
