Photobucket fix

Postby Palifan » Tue Sep 19, 2017 4:38 pm

I've posted this here as I thought it was the place where most people look but feel free to move it to a different section admin.

Just came across message someone posted in another forum I'm part of and although I haven't tried it I thought it was worth passing on. If it does work for someone then please share it as it maybe of use to other members.

Guys, if you use either Google Chrome or Firefox, there is an extension available called Photobucket Fixer that WILL let you see the pics again!! I installed it in Firefox and it does work. Of course, it won't if, like me, you deleted your account!

Salvation!!

CHEERS!

I just added it on Chrome and it works pretty well. Wow, this is a huge. While there are still some images that don't show up, the large majority I tested it on worked great. Thanks for the heads up Ian.

Can someone post a link to a thread with photos that used to be nuked so I can test it?

The pictures in my own limelight never stopped working for some reason.

That's amazing guys, I don't use PB so wasn't sure it was going to do the job but it's great news to hear that it's a fix for the most part to this terrible situation. :D

Only trouble is that yourself and a limited number of people will see the fixed images. Most will not have the extension and get that bandwidth meter image.

There are a few other extensions that work as well. I'm using photobucket embed fix.
