READ THIS for a 'fix' for Photobucket images.....

Postby seawings » Tue Aug 29, 2017 8:43 am

Hi All,

As you are all aware the Photobucket image host decided to withdraw their free service and make it all chargeable in the future at an unsustainable high level of funds for us hobbyists.

That has obviously upset everybody and has sent everone looking for alternative solutions; Imger and Flikr image hosts spring to mind (but bear in-mind that they too could in the future pull the plug on free hosting if they become overloaded.)

However, here is a clever 'fix' to return the images previously posted to 'life' by getting around the Photobucket withdrawal and making them all visible again for those using Mozilla Firfox as their browser.

Go here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... src=search

Cut and paste the above and follow the very simple instructions to palce an 'add-on' into your Mozilla files and just like magic the images on this fourm re-appear..!

This fix was developed by 'rubenandres77' on the RevellAtions forum and my persdonal grateful thanks goes out to him/her. Thanks also to Mark J Davies on Hyperscale for the 'heads-up'.

For those using Google Chrome, click here to achieve the same results:

Obviously, this work-around may not last for long, or it may stay, who knows but if anyone wants to save images straight off of this forum then NOW is the time to do it..!

Cheers,
Best Regards,

At last...! I've manage to beat Bill to the draw on something..!

Enjoy Bill, BUT remember PhotoBucket may find a 'fix' to the 'fix' and put it all back again......so, grab your iamges off the site as copies NOW if you need to.

That goes for everyone else as well.......
