EASY PHOTOBUCKET PICTURE DISPLAY FIX!
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:13:15 AM »
I, like many others, have had topics ruined by PhotoBucket's recent ransom demand for $400 to allow links to hosted photos to be displayed.

THERE IS NOW A SOLUTION IF YOU USE CHROME OR FIREFOX BROWSERS!!  :13:

Some clever person has made extensions that makes links work again for all the pages you view!

CHROME:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-embed-fix/naolkcpnnlofnnghnmfegnfnflicjjgj

FIREFOX:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/photobucket-embedded-fix/?src=search

You may have to clear your browser cache if you've previously viewed page and seen the Error graphic.

Just click on the "Add to Chrome/Firefox" button on the links above.

I have tested the Chrome extension and it works  :13: :13: :13: :13:

My previously ruined topics now display the PhotoBucket photos as before!! I've checked a few threads/topics on the MRC Forum and it all seems fine  :)

I have to thank "wiggles" on the RX-8 OC forum for discovering this fix  :sign0098:

If you can see this pic then it worked!

If not, try clearing cache on your browser  :13:

Regretfully, Photobucket may still chnage things at their end to break the links again, but hopefully the clever guys out there will be able to keep doing workarounds  :)

Have you cleared your browser cache?

It worked straight away for me, using Chrome on my PC  :13:

Spoke too soon guys?

90% of Photobucket photo links seem to work OK (so a great improvement), but others (mostly in 2016/17 posts) now work only intermittently.

The photo I posted just above up above displayed fine for a few days in my browser, but now doesn't display  :angry5:
