The loverly [ profile] gorengal posted here with a solution that restored my moodtheme so I wanted to signal-boost in case anybody else has had their animated, Photobucket-hosted moodtheme suddenly turn into text instead of the usual images. :S Which is what happened to me but editing the links in my moodtheme as described in the fix restored them, yay!

In short, if this has happened to you, here's what to do:

Go to the edit moodtheme screen under customize journal appearance.

If the URL starts with "http://smg" then you'll need to change that to "http://img".

Edit: If it starts with "http://s" and some numbers after that, then you'll need to change to "http://i" and leave the numbers as they are. (Thanks to [ profile] gorengal yet again and to [ profile] betgirl for that info and better explanation than I originally had. ;) )

You can either manually replace each "s" with an "i" or if you have Firefox, you can get the Find and Replace add-on and it will do it for you. ;)

I did mine manually because I apparently have nothing better to do, lol! ;) But it did bring all of my images back, so at least it's something that seems to be working now. Until somebody else decides to "upgrade" and breaks it all over again, ugh! *eyeroll*

Anyway, just wanted to pass that along in case anybody else was trying to figure out what happened to their moodtheme! ;) There's a link to more info about this at [ profile] gorengal's entry if you want to read more. ;)

In other news, I'm vidding like a house afire (though why a house that was on fire would stop and take time to vid, I dunno... ;) ). Yet Another New Fandom (it's a movie and not really a "new" fandom because I've loved previous movies in the series but "new" in that I haven't vidded it before or talked about it much ;) ) and I'm having a blast with it! :D

Which is my only comfort when I want to slap myself with a rubber chicken for vidding waaaaay too much right now! o_@ But for some reason, I'm just really, really, REALLY inspired to vid so... Here comes another one. *blush* ;)

This is my first time using Vegas Movie Studio 12 and so far I'm not having too much trouble with it, other than a brief freak-out when I opened the cookie cutter AND IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE MY OLD COOKIE CUTTER ZOMG WHERE IS THE TIMELINE AND HOW DO YOU KEYFRAME MOTION HALP. (I did finally figure it out. ;) )

*hugs and cookies for everybody* ♥♥♥!!!

Thank you for the info! I was wondering what had happened to my mood theme. The fix worked wonderfully. ;)

Oh, I'm so glad that it worked for you, hon! :D I hate it when things just randomly stop working and it's really difficult to find out why! >:[

*hugs* ♥!

Hee, thanks...and you're welcome. :)

In case there are others like me who don't see 'smg'...I see an 's' followed by some numbers...the same fix works. Just change that 's' to an 'i' and leave the numbers as is.

Thank you again for the info, I was going craaaaaazy trying to track down what was throwing a wrench in my moodthemes like that! o_@

Ooo, I didn't catch that about the thing possibly having "s" and numbers and not "smg," I'll edit that into the explanation in case others have it like that, too! :D

Thanks so much once more, hon! *hugs* ♥!

Ugh I bet this is because pf photobucket's stupid new version. WHICH HURTS TO LOOK AT. D:

I don't know what Photobucket was thinking but if it involved something like, "Hey, let's make the site AS UGLY AS POSSIBLE," then I think they hit it perfectly. :S *shudders* Where's the pretty (dark, naturally ;) ) background I've had for all this time? :S


I'm sure that that's exactly what messed things up! >:[

;) *smishes you* ♥♥♥

It's actually one of the few sites where i can see it better with the dark background. All those images on a light background hurts my brain, but on the black version, it's lovely. I hate the new one so so much.

*squish* Glad you got it sorted honey! ♥

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! There's nothing like inspiration so you ride that video train as far as it will take you! I miss fandom-related inspiration. It's slowly coming back to me. :)

D'awww, thanks, hon! :D I don't know why the muses have to be so all-or-nothing so often for me. I either go long periods of time when I don't write or vid, then it's like LET'S DO ALL THE FANDOM, RIGHT NOW!!! o_O I wouldn't mind having a little more stability, lol! ;)

Yay for fandom-related inspiration returning for you! I hate feeling like I'm bugging the heck out of people by posting something all the time but I really hate it when the inspiration goes dead, especially when it stays that way for a long while. :(

*sets out a freshly baked basket of cookies to lure your muse(s) back* ;) ♥♥♥!!!

OM NOM NOM. Muse loves cookies!!

Mostly I've been doing a little writing lately and that's felt awesome. I barely wrote anything last year and the past couple months I've written a great deal. I've written stories since I was old enough to hold a pen so it's been really therapeutic to get back to that. There's something very freeing about writing for me. So I miss it when that muse goes to rehab. LOL.

I hardly ever use my mood theme, so I probably wouldn't even notice if it wasn't working, but I'll check once PB "forces" me to swap to the new site, just in case that messes it up

PB and their forced switch to their "improved" site has them on my No-Goodnik list, UGH! It was so much easier to use and let me use the dark background color scheme that's easier on my eyes! :S

What was so weird about this was that I could see other people's moodthemes fine but MINE was just gone! :S Who knows, huh? *shrugs*

*hugs* ♥!
