Does anyone know why photobucket pics on 2+2 are working again??

As some of you probably know, photobucket disabled the links to third party sites and wanted $400 a year to get an account that would allow third party linking. So, all of my pre-Imagur pics on 2+2 went dead.

They are now back??? Any techies know whether this is something 2+2 did or whether photobucket has reversed its position. I cant seem to find anything on photobucket changing its position.

And, I sure as heck didn't pay the $400....lol

Just read about it here:

http://www.denverpost.com/2017/07/06...over-charging/

Hadn't heard of this before. Guess it was just for, shall we say, power users.

No clue how long it hadn't been working on this site or when it started working again. If it wasn't broken for months I'd guess the swap to https caused a temporary problem that has since been rectified.

I just checked photobucket site and it is still $400 for any 3rd party site sharing. So, who knows why the links are still working..
