    This is something that's been annoying me and a few others over on BB, so I thought it might be worth posting it here too. It's due to a PB update that selects linking back to the library as default.

    With the old PB, when we clicked on the "IMG" link it copied the photo with html "img" tags which allowed you to paste it directly into your posts.

    Now, by default, it links back to your album (il you paste the link, you will see that it starts with "url" tags with a photobucket address before the img tags.

    [​IMG]

    There is a simple work around, and the beauty is it is permanent:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Now, if you go to the same image as in my first capture, you will see this:

    [​IMG]

    No more "URL' tags, so no more album openings and you can view the image via Tapatalk direct, instead of opening Safari.

    Only applies to your own pics, so let's encourage everyone to do it.

    Thanks, no problem. I copy pasted it from BB.

    It's particularly important for sales threads. Opening multiple photos to see the item can be a pain, particularly running on 3G, so I tend not to bother. I think if someone wants you to look at their pictures they should make it as easy as possible to do so.

    Took a while to work out what was going on before realising the PB upgrade was responsible.
