Dept. of Third Party Image Hosting Update

For Those Using the Google Drive/gdURL.com Image Hosting Process

I discovered yesterday that gdURL.com has slightly changed how it appears to operate. It confused the hell out of me when I tried to use it yesterday; it seemed to be providing me with gobbledygook partial code rather than the complete URL it previously would provide as a permalink to an image that I wanted to embed on Dreamwidth or elsewhere.

I did some futzing about today, and discovered that gdURL.com is still creating a usable link; it's simply not adding the http://gdURL.com/ section of the URL into the link, as it did before. Instead, you have to append that to the beginning of the newly-created URL yourself.

I don't know whether that's a temporary glitch or a permanent change, and there's apparently no way to ask that question of the gdURL.com creator. However, the process still works.

I've edited my "How To" sticky post to reflect the change, but in case you've been using my original instructions and weren't apt to be checking in on the original post, I'm alerting folks to it now. (Hey,
