Can't Post

I've got Chapter Sixty ready to go, but apparently Photobucket has decided to arbitrarily scramble filenames now? And there's no option to turn it off? So my update template doesn't work.

I'll upload the chapter once this absurdity is resolved.

Looking forward to it. :)

Just read this so if it's already been addressed, forgive. I checked my PB (free account) and under Account -> Privacy Settings -> it shows an option to turn ON scrambling filenames (mine aren't). So I'm guessing there must also be a way to turn them OFF?

Will PM you back soon.

I looked very thoroughly; they let you scramble all your existing files but no longer let you decide whether or not to scramble new ones. Because some morons uploaded naked pictures of themselves and thought they'd be safe, we all have to suffer from absurd new security precautions.

Update template?

Presumably nobody thinks I've done nearly eighty chapters worth of copying a hundred image URLs, one by one, into a text document.

Imagine this...

[img src="blahblah/C080/001.jpg][/img][br]
[img src="blahblah/C080/002.jpg][/img][br]
[img src="blahblah/C080/003.jpg][/img][br]

...all the way up to 300 (just in case). I write the captions between them. This way I only have to retrieve actual links for the stuff not hosted on Photobucket.

Thanks. I've only done one (crappy) update so far, and that was only eight pics.

Server administration, I can handle. Photo manipulation and sharing, yeah, not so much.

Even sixty-eight updates later, the logistics overwhelm me every time.
