Photobucket images now viewable again!

PostPosted by Hoovie » Mon Oct 09, 2017 8:24 pm

No, they haven't changed their stupid policy, but ....

If you use Firefox Web Browser, then you can install a Photobucket Fix add-on (see here ==> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... edded-fix/ ) and you will be back to normal.

NOTE: it is still recommended to use another host for any future pictures, but at least pictures in older threads *may* be viewable. I say *may* as lots of people, myself included, removed their files, in which case you will see an picture showing this:

(if you see the Photobucket Ransom Demand above, you don't have the fix add-on running)

I don't know if there are similar add-ons for other browsers.



IMPORTANT NOTE: This add-on is nothing to do with me. I am merely bringing its existance to readers attention. Install at your own risk. Neither the RAV4 Drivers Club, Admins, Moderators, Hosts, Tea Ladies, and Club Cats will be held responsible whatsoever for any losses to any systems should something not work afterwards. It is the installers sole responsibility should they chose to install.

(just in case Metal Mickey is lurking :rolleyes: )

There is also a similar "Photobucket Hotlink Fix" available in the Chrome Web Store - I assume that it works but haven't tried it ...

But quite how long either of these 'fixes' works before the Photobucket folk 'break' it again is anyone's guess!

When I looked at the firefox one, it seems like it was ported from the chrome one.

Not sure if we need to worry too much about PB breaking it any time soon. I would imagine any competent staff they had have left for a proper company or have been laid off due to lack of advertising funds.
