PHOTOBUCKET Embedded Images Issue Workaround

Postby MtnDon » Sat Sep 23, 2017 4:17 pm

Photobucket blocking the display of images stored on their servers has made a mess of many forums, blogs, etc. Some folks have gone to the trouble of rehosting and then relinking their images. They are to be lauded. Others, like myself have so many images used in my own build topic as well as scattered everywhere else, I can not see taking the time and effort to rehost and relink them. However, I have found a way to make the images reappear in the topic threads with little effort.

There are three things required.

First and foremost the images must still be located on the Photobucket servers in the same file folder, etc. If the photo owner went and deleted their images from Photobucket for whatever reason, this will not work.

Second, to view the forum pages the viewer must be using the Chrome browser.

Third, that browser must have the Chrome Photobucket Embed Fix extension installed.

Thanks, MtnDon! There's a similar fix for FireFox. Go to the Add-ons Manager and search "photobucket".
I'll burn that bridge when I come to it.

Just installed the chrome one 2 days ago, its so nice! But it probably wont last forever, photobucket is working on making those things not work. Good to know about the firefox one as well!
