Update account to enable 3rd party hosting

Hi, I can't find an article on this or a setting to enable.
How do I update my account to enable 3rd party hosting?
(I wasn’t sure where to post this either).
Thanks,

If you are using a 3rd party host site like Photobucket, that site maybe limiting your ability to post a picture from their site.

As far as I know, FTE does not limit your ability to post a picture from a 3rd party hosting site.

Which site do you use?

Hi, its so much posting photos, that seems to work fine, so far.

Its viewing photos of exisiting posts.
The photos dont display, instead a message suggesting to enable third party....
is displayed.

Exactly. Photobucket no longer allows users to share photos on third party sites without the user paying for a premium membership on Photobucket.

They made the change several months ago. FTE has nothing to do with this.

Oh, so can nothing be done to restore the photos?
Seems a shame.

What Is 3rd Party Hosting?
Photobucket defines 3rd party hosting as the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website.

For example, using the <img> tag to embed or display a JPEG image from your Photobucket account on another website such as a forum, Etsy, eBay auction listings, blog, etc. is 3rd party hosting.

Benefits of Photobucket’s 3rd Party Hosting

Easy to Use – Upload a photo from any device and copy the embed code with one click to host a photo with no development or technical knowledge required
Competitive, fixed pricing
Offers the only unlimited 3rd party hosting plan (Commercial and Personal Use)

From Photobucket website.

FTE. Users could download their photos from sites like Photobucket to their computers and then UPLOAD the photos to FTE or another site that doesn’t charge.
