My message was too short error??? "Please lengthen your message to at least 10 characters."

Anyways, I have long used photobucket to store my photos that I post on various forums etc. For awhile now I have not been able to access my photobucket pics. It loads most of the page, signs me in, but gets stuck with the little loading wheel going around and around or says loads with errors. I can't see any of my pics or load any albums.

I've gone to the help/forum section but it just posts articles or other's questions. I can post my own questions, not much of a "forum". Can't find any "contact us" that gets me anywhere other than bumping back to the same page of info I've already been on.

Anyone help?

I've rebooted and still no luck. I tried probably a couple of weeks ago with the same result. I did see on the help page a new version. I wonder if this is part of the problem? If there is a new version, why wouldn't it just upgrade? Are you able to call up my library, user is "chiroken". Should have aquarium pics among other things.

Thx

I tried on my laptop and was able to login and see pics. Maybe my browser is too old? Will look into it but I don't want google Chrome! Run IE on XP pro. Will see my options.

IE8 is the latest browser for XP, microsoft website just informed me. So no upgrades are available for IE it seems. Don't know if that is the problem then. The laptop uses windows 7 I think.

Try deleting the photobucket.com cookie in Internet Explorer and re-login.
can I search just for that cookie to see if it was missed by the delete?

works fine on my IE8, though strangely it is having that problem when I use an older version of firefox( my default browser) My pc is running XP pro. Works fine on my other PC with the new Firefox though. So I am baffled too.

As far as cleaning history and deleting cookies I use a program called CCleaner that seem to be pretty thourough. It's free and can be downloaded here: CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
Also has a registry cleaner, maybe download that and run it.

I haven't used MSIE since the mid 90's so you'll need to check Google for those instructions. Sorry dude.

I don't like the new format of photobucket so I mostly use the mobile version. If you have a smartphone, just get the app.
