Photobucket

#1 Post by greybeard » Thu Feb 10, 2011 8:47 pm

Why does my computer lock up after viewing photos [hosted in photobucket] in postings on the site?

Usually one can click the left arrow at the top left corner of the screen to get back to the post; ie after viewing Youtube links.

Is it a crap bucket or am I doing something wrong.

Daryl, I have to click the back arrow a few times to get back to the post. It seems photobucket sometimes opens mutltipal pages. If you press the down arrow (the one beside the back & forward arrows top left of page) you can go back to the post in one click. I know that doesn't give an answer to why it happens but I hope it helps.

Hi Jeff,

Thank you for the information. Numerous left arrow clicks did not work but the little down arrow worked fine.

Morning All.

Photobucket is Photobucket and can work okay but at the same time it can be temperamental.

Photobucket is owned by Newscorp - so do not expect something for nothing.

And this is why I do not use or like Photobucket.
