Ugh. Ugh, ugh, UGH. 😡
If you can’t see pictures from any of my posts, I’m sorry. I can’t do anything about it right now. I’m writing this from my phone, since we’re on vacation.
Google has announced that they will no longer be serving content through the googledrive.com/host/ link. This means that my tutorial ( yes, the one I spent WEEKS on to help you all ) will no longer work. This ALSO means that every single photo ever uploaded with the tutorial will disappear. Yes, you read that right. As of August 31, 2016, all the photos uploaded with the tutorial will be gone. Not just on my blog. On your blogs. In the posts you worked so hard on.
I’m so, SO, sorry that this is happening. I wish I had a perfect fix, but I really don’t. To Megan, Rutvi, Allison, Grace, and everyone else using my tutorial, I’m sorry. You’re going to have to go back and fix this by taking out the Google Drive pictures and re-uploading them the normal way. I know this isn’t my fault, but I still feel terrible. 😥
I do have a solution for those of you who are out of WordPress space, though it isn’t ideal. Here’s what to do:
Go to blogger.com.
Start a blog, nothing fancy. You can call it “photo backup” or something like that.
Upload your photos to that blog and post them.
Copy and paste the pictures into WordPress.
You can make the blog private, if you like. I’m sorry this isn’t ideal or fast, but it’s all I’ve got for now. It’s going to be a lot of work replacing all your photos.
Bye for now. Again, I’m sorry. I wish Google wasn’t doing this. 😦
